How Not Knowing Crowdfunding Makes You a Rookie


How Not Knowing Crowdfunding Makes You a Rookie


Why does Joel Friedlander say, “Judith Briles does it again, providing exactly the resource indie authors need to make their way through the crowdfunding jungle. From planning to platforms to real-world strategies, this is the go-to guide that I’ll be  recommending.”


The book he is talking about is The CrowdFunding Guide for Authors & Writers. It’s the first in Judith Briles’ AuthorYOU Mini Guide series … and it’s a book you want to have … that is, unless you want to be a rookie. Created to be read in less than one hour, it’s got tall the essential elements to create a crowdfunding campaign and be successful … something that less than 30 percent of authors are.

You want the odds to be on your side. You want to be in the 30 percent minority that succeeds if you are an author or author-to-be. Not the 70 percent that don’t.

The CrowdFunding Guide for Authors & Writers will show you how to:

  • Create rewards that are slick, click and tick with donors.
  • Identify timelines: pre, during and post a crowdfunding campaign.
  • Determine which crowdfunding sites are best for authors and writers.
  • Pinpoint the essentials that every successful crowdfunding campaign has.
  •   Get hot tips for creating momentum and the final push.
  •   Structure a social media checklist that’s ideal for your project.



Here’s the guide you’ve been looking for that is easy and understandable—one that shows you how to set budgets and limit costs. Does crowdfunding work? Yes. Is it doable? Absolutely … with some help.


With The CrowdFunding Guide for Authors & Writers, you’ve got Dr. Judith Briles at your side. As The Book Shepherd and publishing expert, all her crowdfunded authors have been over-funded. You can be too. Get your copy today:
