Over 70% of publishing projects fail on crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, but authors can crowdfund their books. Learn how from Bethany Carlson, owner of The Artist’s Partner, where writers’ success rate is over 98%. From planning a communication strategy, to shooting a video, to marketing techniques, Bethany will go over the steps that have led to over $70,000 raised for books (including for Festival of the Book authors Stefan Bechtel, Bob Perry, Mary Buford Hitz, Marc Boston, Carolyn O’Neal, Zack Bonnie, and Katherine McNamara). To specifically workshop your book’s crowdfunding campaign, please fill in her questionnaire at https://theartistspartner.com/fill-out-our-artist-questionnaire-for-a-free-consultation/ before the session.

Bethany Joy Carlson is a WriterHouse Board member, a founding member of BACCA Literary, and the owner of The Artist’s Partner, which helps creatives produce their work. See a case study of how one book went from dream to $40K contract at TheArtistsPartner.com.
