Welcome to the fundraising group, Elaine! I hope you find the group and the discussions useful. We are soon planning to start a few things that would assist writers with DIY fundraising projects. Meanwhile, I am interviewing writers and other creatives who have had success with crowdfunding for my blog. To begin with, if you like, please click here to read the interview with a writer who has become the first author to be published by the publishing arm of a crowdfunding platform. She shares how she built a strong online community, and the lessons she learned in the process.
Elaine, We're delighted to have you in the novelist group! You might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion if you're not too uncomfortable talking about what you're working on. We save the wall for discussion, so please refrain from linking to blog posts there, but do add them in the “Links to Helpful Blog Posts for Writers” discussion thread.
And we do a live chat every Wednesday at 1EST; instructions on how to participate are in the "Our Water Cooler Wednesdays" box near the top of the group page.
