The Definitive Crowdfunding Guide for Writers

From FriesenPress President Tammara Kennelly:

With millions of new books entering the market each and every year, it’s more important than ever to publish a book that’s not only good, but great. And publishing a professionally edited and designed book is an investment. There aren’t any shortcuts.

What many authors don’t know is that there is a way of easing or eliminating the financial burden of your investment—a path that can also help you sell books and build an engaged readership before you’re published. It’s called crowdfunding.

While it may sound too good to be true, we know firsthand how powerful and attainable crowdfunding success is for first-time authors. Dozens of FriesenPress authors have published incredible books after raising the funds through crowdfunding campaigns.

But we also know how overwhelming the idea of crowdfunding can be for an author. That’s why we’ve written this guide—The Definitive Crowdfunding Guide for Writers. We’ll guide you through the entire crowdfunding process, from beginning to end. There’s no experience necessary. All you need to get started is an idea that you believe in.
