A Definite Must-Have with Crucial and Updated Info! Crowdfunding is an ever-changing beast that morphs into many forms while maintaining its true nature. Thankfully, it’s a beast that we don’t have to tackle alone. While Madeleine’s first edition helped me get through my second crowdfunding effort (which met with success) it’s still hard to keep up. The second edition of “Kickstarter for the Independent Creator“ helps us do just that. With crucial updated and added information (including platforms I never knew about), this book is a must-have for creators who dare to begin their brave journey into the world of crowdfunding. Handling topics such as taxes and strategies, It goes beyond seeking funding for books and is an aid to those wanting see their dreams come true through other mediums. The book even goes beyond crowdfunding (it’s all connected anyway) and delves into connections made through avenues outside of the platform. With the second edition, you get a comprehensive look at how it all ties together and does this, kindly. Informative. precise, thorough, kindness. Don’t start your campaign before you read this book!
