Crowdfund Your Book or Screenplay

Looking for funding for a creative project? Kickstarter’s deservedly popular.

Here’s a clever donor reward to offer if you’re writing a novel or screenplay, and want to get it crowd funded.

This article, Kickstarter Tips for Successful Crowdfunding, suggests:

“Offering cameos or naming a film or book character after a donor is becoming a popular perk. Keeping your audience informed can be a reward in itself. Even people who can’t afford to donate to a project will want to see the end result.”

Bestselling authors do this — win a contest, or contribute to the author’s favorite charity, and get a character named after yourself.

This is a very simple reward, and it’s appealing to many people.
