I’m working on setting up the Kickstarter for Tamora Carter: Goblin Queen. I’ve got most of the campaign set up with a summary, rewards, etc. But I know a lot of you have more experience with these things, and I wanted to ask whether you had any particular advice or suggestions before I get started.
I’ve set a tentative goal of $3500. I’m thinking of a stretch goal of interior black-and-white illustrations.
I’m planning to use Friday’s reading as the video. Here are the rewards I’ve set up. (I briefly played with the idea of doing a $10,000 “In my dreams” reward.)
- $1 or more: Good Karma and Happy Goblins. You’ll be rewarded with my gratitude and the knowledge that you’ve made the goblins of the world very happy.
