Indie Publishing Guide on Kickstarter

Have you ever wanted to independently publish a book? Amy Leigh Strickland, the CWO of Matter Deep Publishing, hopes to raise $8,000 on Kickstarter to create a manual entitled The Indie Guide to Indie Publishing.

The funds will be used to pay the nine contributing writers and hiring a book designer. We’ve embedded a video about the project above–what do you think? Here’s more about the project:

The Indie Guide to Indie Publishing is a tool, a step-by-step guide to publishing your independent book. Each article is written by an experienced authority from the independent world, and the book includes an index and glossary to help aspiring authors and publishers along the way.”

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.
