Crowdfunding Guide – Preview Gifts

I chose just a few “gifts” from the many publishing colleagues that I have the pleasure of knowing and working with. Why just a few? Simply this: most book launches do have gifts . . . the great majority of them have oodles of them. Are they relevant and have a remote connection to what the launch is about? Usually not. Sometimes, even the stated value is a tad inflated. The few I selected are connected with what the author and writer are doing.

When you purchase The CrowdFunding Guide for Authors and Writers today, you will get these key gifts valued at $733, designed for authors and writers from:
