I am not a huge fan of the idea that I need to do a Kickstarter page. Not because I don’t like Kickstarter, I think it is a great program! However, I always feel like I should be taking care of things myself. The reality here though, is that Tyree Tomes needs to do more advertising, book trailers, webpages, and author swag. We need to be able to hand out signed books, have contests, etc etc etc and in order to do any of that, we need to be able to pay for it. Right now we do not advertise other than on our own social media sites and this blog. Advertising and quality book trailers and, and, and…all cost money that my parents and I just don’t have to give at the moment.
That being said, I have started a kickstarter campaign in an attempt to fund a little of what we need. The fundage is set for $750, which is about what we will need to order a few full sets of books, get a webpage set up for Tyree Tomes (which will include a full list of publications, a page for Dr. Tyree, a page for me (ESTyree), and a page for our Illustrator, Becky Tyree), and advertise our work for the remainder of 2015.
If you can help in any way, please consider doing so. I won’t hold it against you if you don’t though! And if you want some swag (bookmarks, keychains, etc) let me know. I’ll see if I can hook you up with something 😉
