Funding is the biggest issue though. You don’t always have a lot of money when you are a part-time temp who is one of the main contributors of the household. I am trying to save money for production costs and for my business E.A.T. Media at the same time. It’s not easy.
Funding a book can be a little bit easier than funding a business. There are a couple of options I am looking into besides saving. One option is accepting donations. I created a donations button through PayPal this morning. It is in the left hand corner of the page. If you do donate (which I would be so grateful for), be warned that it’s going to have my company’s name on the page because my personal PayPal was converted to a business one. Until I can find a reliable bank to switch its funding to (attached to my own account right now), I can’t rebuild my personal PayPal account yet. So you are not being duped, it’s just that the page was my personal account at one point and everything is lumped together for the moment.
I am also looking into Kickstarter to obtain funding. I like the thought of people coming together through Kickstarter to fund a project. Before I set up a Kickstarter page though, I must finish my research, estimate my costs, and then come up with the packages of goods that people will get if they give a certain amount. This is definitely going to take more time than I thought. That’s okay though. I want the best for my book. All good things come to those who wait.
