A quick look at Kickstarter novels  

Matt Forbeck, who ran a couple Kickstarters last year, has done an in-depth analysis of gauging your chances of succeeding with a Kickstarter novel.

If you’re at all interested in this kind of thing (as I obviously am), it’s pretty, er, interesting. :) I did a kind of mock “aw!” when I saw NO DOMINION hadn’t made it into his top ten list, although SPIRIT OF THE CENTURY, for which I shall shortly be writing a novel, did, so, y’know, that salved the pain.

But wait, true believers! NO DOMINION *did* make it into his refined list–and by the end of his refinements, is nestled nicely at #4 in successful Kickstarter novels (and my friend Tim Pratt’s recent successful Marla Mason novel lands solidly at #6!), which is pretty awesome.

Someday I’ll be in a position to run another one. :)

Yeah, I think $13K is high for your initial goal, even with a fan base. But perhaps Matt will discuss that more in later blog posts!

Also, cool! I never thought about posts and pictures being seen on FoF pages, hee! :)

I still check FoF daily, see if I find any new people I like. It's not as active as it was when Livejournal was in its heyday, but... *reminisces*
