The children's book project I started last week has consumed most of my time, which is good because that just means I'm more determined to see it through. I have also been considering a more serious approach to getting the project out there by using a project funding website such as IndieGoGo. A few weeks ago I saw this story about Kickstarter and fell in love with the idea that writers, filmmakers and artists can reach out the community to get their projects completed.
I wasn't thinking about my own work at first, but now I'm leaning towards putting my project up there to see what happens. In terms of networking, though, my reach is a little small. Before I take the plunge, I just wanted to ask: has anyone tried any of these websites? If you have, were you successful in raising the money for your project?
