Crowdsourcing: How to use Kickstarter and Other Crowdsourcing Sites to Fund Your Next Project

Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators-IL Chicago co-rep Savy Leiser, author of The Making of a Small-Town Beauty King (2016)  recently funded the first 2 books of a project called The Furever Home Friends, a series about shelter animals with accompanying plush toy where a portion of the profits benefits a shelter. Many authors and illustrators are forced to juggle projects and resources. Savy will talk about getting started, various crowdfunding sites, and, most importantly, how to promote your projects in order to get funded. @SavyLeiser, http://www.savyleiser.com/
