‘Writer’s Guide to Hollywood’ on Kickstarter

Pretty Woman producer Gary W. Goldstein hopes to raise $12,000 to self-publish his bookThe Writer’s Guide to Hollywood.

The funds will be used to hire a book designer, an editor, a proofreader, and a web designer. It will also cover the first print run and the costs of shipping the books out to stores. We’ve embedded a video about the project above–what do you think? Here’s more about the project:

“As a producer and literary manager, I’ve discovered keys to success in Hollywood — valuable tools that actually launch careers — the very things that helped me jumpstart careers for so many screenwriters and filmmakers, and that allowed me to launch my own career when I was new to Los Angeles and didn’t know anyone in the business. I want to share these strategies with writers everywhere so they too can build a career doing what they love.”

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.
