Ice Cream Travel Guide on Kickstarter

Writer Jennifer Ng hopes to raise $5,000 on Kickstarter for her ice cream-themed travel guide. Ng plans to use the funds to cover the cost of traveling and research. We’ve embedded a video about the project above–what do you think?

Here’s more about the project:”Right now, there is no guide to find ice cream throughout the world. I plan to change that. The book will start with an introduction of ice cream: what it means to the world, what it means to me, how this project came to life, its history. Each section for each city/country will include: introduction of the place (map, trivia, etc.), ice cream destinations, stories and recipes.”

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.
