What is Kickstarter?In order to publish Johnson Farm in hard copy - we need the money to pay the bookbinder. (For those of you who know the story...remember when Joseph Smith needed to find the money to publish the Book of Mormon? The process has not changed too much - you need money to get the books to sell the books. Once everyone likes his stories and keeps buying them, then a company will take interest and offer to do some of this work for him.)
Kickstarter is a way to crowd source the funding to get Johnson Farm in hard copy.
The way is works is people commit to the project, and IF the project is funded, then the money comes out of your bank and your reward is sent out.
If the project does not get FULLY funded, then you have lost no money. But that means Johnson Farm will not be available in hard copy in May. 😢😞
Yes, you will need to create an account on Kickstarter.
Yes, you will need to pick a pledge option.
No - your money will not be taken out of your account today. It will come out in the middle of April - but only if the project is fully funded.
Why Should You Get a Book Now?
If the Kickstarter project does not fully fund, we will have to go to plan B or C or D. (There are back-up plans). But that means the book will not be available in hard copy this year, and maybe not even next year.
Many of you have expressed a desire to read Patrick's writing - now is the time to support him for all the hard work he has done. The Kickstarter page has some insights into the story behind the story. (You might also want to follow me on instagram for other insights.)
Writing is Hard Work
I ran across the image below on twitter today. I just want to same that this has seldom been the case with Patrick. He has a plan every day and writes every day. Sure he has had some days when the writing was more difficult, but he has consistently written everyday (except Sundays, well, sometimes you can't control when ideas come, so they get quickly jotted down to get added to the plan for Monday.) I am so proud of the work he has accomplished and know that you will enjoy this story (and the others to come).
If you've reached this far - your next step is: Go to the Kickstarter: Johnson Farm page and put your order in!Kafka's diaries show the real fun side of writing. pic.twitter.com/h7UWC7UFVR— Matt Haig (@matthaig1) March 19, 2017
