Publishing a good book means hiring good people. Hiring good people costs money. More and more authors are using creative ways to fund the costs of their book projects and hiring cover designers, editors, production people, proof readers, and marketers.
Our second Meetup will feature authors and startups who will give you tips on how to raise money for your book project.
Our awesome lineup of panelists:
Sabrina Ricci: Publisher who raised $7500 on Kickstarter.com for her book project.
Kristen Jex: Author who raised over $10,000 for A Concrete Sky on Kickstarter.com
Jesse Potash: Founder of Pubslush.com, crowdfunding platform for books.
Eric Hellman: Founder of Unglue.it, crowdfunding platform for Creative Commons books.
Join our budding community!
The NY Self Publishers Meetup is a community of authors, journalists, bloggers, publishers, designers, illustrators, editors, marketers and agents who believe that the old book publishing model is broken.
The meetup is organized by BiblioCrunch, a marketplace that connects authors with the professionals and resources they need to publish their books.
