After a receiving 16 rejections from traditional publishers, and still very much believing in the story, novelist Johnny Ruin, decided to try crowdfunding. The book funded in just nine days and is scheduled for release in Spring 2018.

Now, the author shares his experience with crowdfunding and provides tips and tricks on running a successful campaign. 

In October 2014 we ran a crowdfunding campaign to fund the minimum amount of development time needed to deliver our new artistic app Karen.

Thanks to our incredible audiences, old and new, we successfully hit our target.

"We learnt a lot from this experience and wanted to try to squeeze it all into a guide that would help people who are about to embark on a similar endeavour."
