Planning and Writing a Grant Proposal: The Basics – The Writing Center – UW–Madison
If I had a dollar for every person who asked me about funding for their book projects, well, I could start a fund for those very projects! Not a week goes by without an email or call from someone seeking free publishing services. Utilize Crowdfunding — One of the most common ways to raise funds for book publishing is through crowdfunding. You can create a campaign through Kickstarter or Indiegogo and raise funds with the help of family, friends, peers, clients and the general public. The strategy here is to pre-sell copies of your book before it is published, as well as offer other items or services based on different investment levels. For example, you could offer a t-shirt based on the theme of your book or consulting time with you. Hint: Study completed campaigns to see how the most successful ones were designed.
