I’m currently working on my second book, “Nelson Beats The Odds: Tameka’s New Dress”. I’m really excited and have launched my second Kickstarter. The first one was unsuccessful and I lowered my funding goal by $9,000 this time. My feelings were hurt when I only raised $1,800 last time and failed to reach my goal. I put a lot of time and energy into it and was desperate for the money. I put out a press release, extended it to 45 days and uploaded a video. I shared it religiously on Facebook and Twitter. I had tons of family and friends but only a small percentage donated. Some complained that it was difficult to navigate Kickstarter, others complained about having to register a profile just to donate money. I set up a paypal account and accepted preorders. The preorders were what helped me fund my project.
You may ask, why go back? Well, Kickstarter is a cool website and I want to succeed this time. I haven’t uploaded a video yet and really haven’t pushed it as hard as the first book. I am confident that I can raise $750. I’ve already raised $294. I’ll continue pushing, Ronnie will beat the odds this time around.
