The Kickstarter campaign for Weeza’s Great Escape runs the entire month of September, and I am SO stoked to be at this juncture bringing this feel-good project into the world. I’ve received so much support and well wishes for little Weeza and this book about her, it’s overwhelming in the best way (cue my heart growing three sizes too big).
I’m calling it a win/win or a woof/woof. Kickstarter campaigns have become a popular avenue for authors to launch their books, especially picture book authors as there are a lot of up-front costs. But what I love most about this platform is how easy it is to offer you additional swag (does anyone else see that word is “wag” with an extra s?) plus signed author copies. And books will be signed by BOTH me and Weeza (a stamp of her actual paw print is at the ready).
Even if you don’t want a copy (but don’t you?), Kickstarter gives you the option to support the project with a donation of your choosing just because you believe in it. How’s that for a solid deposit in your karma account?
What happens after the Kickstarter campaign?
The book will be released to retailers once the campaign ends and orders are fulfilled. So if you want first dibs (plus…cool swag, remember?), the Kickstarter campaign rewards supporters like that.
Head over to the campaign HERE and check out all the categories! You do need an account to become a backer and purchase one of the tiers. But don’t let this stellar opportunity slip away—the book is cheaper than it will be at retailers (not my fault...it’s expensive to print and distribute books nowadays) PLUS you get the s-waggy extras! Please contact me if you have any questions.
