The CrowdFunding Guide for Authors and Writers is Coming!

 Sometimes books take a long time to germinate, get written and finally published. AND, sometimes they roar out that the author is a tad stunned at the what can be accomplished in such a short period of time.

That’s exactly what happened to me last month … last month. Now, it wasn’t a brand, spanking new idea. I had written a few articles on it. I had done webinars on it. I had written a chapter on it for a book to be published next month. I include it in a module for my annual Judith Briles Book Publishing Unplugged. But a book on it? Now in my thinking sphere … until the cosmic goose zapped me.

“Girl … get with it. You know this stuff … you work with your clients on creating and executing campaigns. Write a book on it–but make it a shorty … not a tome.”

CrowdfundingThe subject? Crowdfunding. As in getting FREE money to support a book project, a marketing or publicity campaign for a book … anything to do with the book or author’s success.

Gathering the articles I wrote, reviewing the webinar that I created, looking through the module I include within Judith Briles Book Publishing Unplugged event and then scanning customized images that I had used throughout my books Author YOU: Creating and Building Your Author and Book Platforms and Snappy Sassy Salty: Wise Words for Authors and Writers and noodling the CrowdFunding Game Plan Model that I will introduce at this year’s Unplugged event, the light bulbs went off. I mean, really, here’s a book screaming at me to create pronto and get out.

How long did it take? … not long–a few weeks from start to finish.
