I am publishing a children’s book that explains incarceration to the 4-6 million children with a father in prison. I would like to use a crowdfunding platform to generate some pre-sales and some cash flow to assist with the support I need to launch the book. Which Crowdfunding site would be the best fit? Kickstarter? IndieGoGo? Another? Do they have comparable fees?
Over 8,000 children's books have been funded on kickstarter successfully (https://www.kickstarter.com/discover/categories/publishing/children's%20books). As you look at those that are most funded (https://www.kickstarter.com/discover/advanced?category_id=46&sort=most_funded&seed=2605499&page=1) Like Rebel Girls Series, you can see that successfully building a tribe on the kickstarter platform, can have long-standing positive business growth, by tapping into that community again, for your next book.
