In this way series that might be turned down by a publisher come to life because an author’s readers get behind it and fund the creation, which might include editing, typesetting, cover creation, printing, and distribution. It’s true teamwork.
But with Crowdfunding the author and their readers create something together. The readers will always remember they helped make it happen and therefore the series means even more to them, and the author will always be grateful to their audience who made it all possible. It really is a win-win for everyone.
And that’s why I chose to launch a KickStarter to finish Sages of Darkness. HowlSage came out back in 2011, and my readers have been left in the lurch since then waiting to read what happens to Taylor and Ike. I’ve received somany questions and comments in regards to the series and the next book, that it was finally time to do it. But I needed funds to commission the editing of the books, so I turned to KickStarter.
