All or nothing, my heart and investment on the line.
Sometime in late 2010 a lightning bolt of inspiration struck me to write a unique book. After being a musician for over 15 years I decided to create book that would allow me to incorporate both my music and the wisdom I have gained from my life as a touring artist.
With my keen interest in technology I decided to also include Augmented Reality to allow readers to diver even further into the web of a tale. As the story is essentially about consciousness, I thought what better way than to create layers to demonstrate the layers of reality.
What an isolating yet transformative last four years it has been.
I am using the Kickstarter platform to launch it as I wanted to self publish because it is quite a multi-dimensional project combining technology and music, not really suited for the regular publishing world.
Kickstarter works as a pre-order system. It is a great platform and I recommend it for anyone else in our writing community who is also thinking to self publish. Though, as it is all or nothing the stakes are quite high. We as writers/creators receive nothing if the goal isn’t reached.
My heart and investment of time and money is on the line and both my heart and the clock are racing fast.
At the time of writing this I am 2/3 of the way to reach my target and the goal must be reached by November 30th.
I’d be honoured if anyone reading this would like to know more about what I have created and contribute to the birth of my book baby “November Fox."
I plan to write a follow up guest post on my experience after the campaign is over.
