Episode 71 – Unlocking Creative Possibilities: Authors and Kickstarter

Hosted by: Craig Tuch and Roland Hulme with special guest Oriana Leckert

Most of us are familiar with Kickstarter, having seen (or helped fund) a variety of cool gadgets and ideas. But what isn’t as well-known is the immense potential it holds for authors. That’s why we were excited to sit down to chat with Oriana Leckert, Head of Publishing for Kickstarter, to discuss those possibilities.

Oriana joined us to share her valuable insights into how authors can utilize Kickstarter to bring their creative projects to life – including how authors can use it to secure upfront funding for their writing projects, mitigate risk, and embark on innovative endeavors beyond the usual process of a book release.

With over 88,000 publishing projects and $500 million in pledges from nearly 5 million backers, Kickstarter’s potential audience is vast and proven. So whether you’re a seasoned author or just starting out, we’ll take you through the essential information you need to know before you decide if Kickstarter is the right avenue for your next project.
