Thank you Aaron for your comment. I have been following all the rules and working my contacts hard, but I think I made two fundamental errors. 1. I have asked for too much money. I started out with a much bigger budget and scaled back, but even this figure is probably too much. 2. I decided to go with kickstarter instead of Rockethub or Indiegogo. I choose kickstarter because it has a larger profile, but the all or nothing clause gave me hesitation. If I had to do it over again I would go to Rockethub because you get all that you raise.
I read the article about Aaron Pogue(Sp?) kickstarter campaign, looked at his video, and even contributed, but I see he is a long ways from his goal. The article mentions his video as not being too good. I have a video that was professionally done, but I am not pulling in donors like I would wish. I thought I had reasonable gifts. I am not looking to put my book in the public domain. I wonder what else I should have done to get donors. If you have any thoughts I would appreciate hearing them. My project is: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/579486175/docking-the-art-dockuments
