A Writing Lifestyle Book is Featured on Kickstarter

Jodi and Owen Egerton hope to raise $20,000.00 for their book, This Word Now. They plan to use the funds to cover the costs of editing and self-publishing.

The Egertons have written down their thoughts and tips on writing and living a creative lifestyle. Readers will find essays and exercises throughout the book. We’ve embedded a video about the project above. Here’s more from the Kickstarter page:

“We view writing not just as a craft or a profession, but as a way of interacting with the world. The title This Word Now captures the focus on presence and passion that we aim to bring to our writing, teaching, and our day to day approach to life. We’re excited to share this part of who we are in this book.”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
