I've got a new post at Black Gate about where "The Imlen Bastard" was hiding before I picked it for my first experiment in crowdfunding and self-publishing.

The Great News: On the first day of the 30-day campaign, so many of you rushed to pledge that we hit 18% of the starting goal. That's a strong start.

The Meh News: Day 2 is a lot quieter.

The first three days are really important. Kickstarter aficionados who aren't already familiar with me or my work -- people who just like looking for cool projects to back -- like to back winners. How the first three days go seems to be a big part of how they choose which projects to take a chance on.

So I need to pull out all the stops to get back to the Day 1 momentum.

If you know fantasy readers, art lovers, and audiobook readers who might like what I'm up to with The Imlen Bastard, please do point them over here.

All suggestions for things I haven't thought of, or maybe should do more of, to get the word out would be very welcome.

Meanwhile, my uncharacteristically large collection of exclamation points and I need to get back to work!

You could try posting about your Kickstarter on the Vassar Alumnifire thingy maybe? There's places for job postings and mentoring and what-not... not sure what kind of posting rules they have, but it's a thought!

I am pointing at your stuff from multiple social networks!

Day 5 and you're a third of the way! I just posted to Facebook again. You should be doing more of that. It seems like [livejournal.com profile] csecooney posted every day of her Kickstarter campaign. And most campaigns seem to post at least once a week.

Will you be doing a reading online, or posting some pages for people to read? Maybe some other samples of Kate Baylay's art? Or just another video of you thanking the people who've pledged so far and talking about why you love this project?

Another option--if you can get someone local to interview you about the project. If you can't find someone local, I'll do it on Skype, if I can figure out how to record a call. But it would be better to have it done by someone who can interview you in the same room.
