Book Club Bundle Reward on Kickstarter

Writer Jack Cheng hopes to raise $10,000 on Kickstarter to fund the production of his novel, These Days. In the rewards section, the project includes a “book club bundle” reward for backers who contribute $170 to the project–what do you think?

Here’s more about the book club bundle: “ 6 signed hardcovers for your book club, bookstore,
cafe, startup, co-working space… plus your name in the back and the digital bundle. Shipping included. (International add $10) Estimated Delivery: Jan 2013.”

The money would allow him to employ the services of editors, proofreaders, designers and printers.

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.
