KICKSTARTER SECRETS hits target, announces Amy Chu/Drew Westphal interview stretch goal!

kickstarter-secrets

By Greg Pak

Yesterday morning I launched a Kickstarter for Kickstarter Secrets, an ebook of advice about… wait for it… running a Kickstarter! Whether you’re an established pro or a first time creator, this is the realistic, practical book of crowdfunding tips for you. Please feel free to check out the campaign, back it, and spread the word!

So over a hundred wonderful backers pushed the campaign past its initial goal in seven hours, and now I’m thrilled to announce our first set of stretch goals!

If we hit $3000, I’ll interview Amy Chu and Drew Westphal, two great creators with incredible Kickstarter experiences that will add huge value to the final book.

Amy Chu funded her two GIRLS NIGHT OUT comics anthologies through Kickstarter. When people ask me how to break in to comics, I point to Amy, who started as an unknown a few years ago, built her skills and reputation step by step, and now is working on projects like POISON IVY for DC and DEADPOOL and ANT-MAN for Marvel. I can’t wait to talk to her about how she built the network to fund her Kickstarters and what kind of advice she has for creators at the start of their careers.

Drew Westphal is the logistical genius who kept the wheels on the bus during the CODE MONKEY SAVE WORLD Kickstarter, coordinating the production of special rewards, finding and managing vendors, and creating the digital infrastructure for organizing addresses, generating mailing lists, and distributing digital rewards. He’ll shed light on all of the nuts and bolts of running a campaign and probably remind me of a bunch of my mistakes. 😉 Drew works with with a number of artists on custom direct-to-fan sales, customer service, fulfillment and logistics. He is also a partner in the annual JoCo Cruise, which sets sail on March 4, 2017 out of San Diego, CA.

Right now the Kickstarter Secrets campaign is at $2623. Just under $400 more and we’ll add Amy and Drew to the book — and announce the next exciting stretch goal interviews!

Thanks so much for your consideration and all the best!
