AUDIENCE FUNDING

BE PART OF THE MOVEMENT

Why not call it "Crowd Funding?"

I'd like to call it "Audience Funded," if you don't mind. You're more gracious than a crowd.

I'm doing this without one of the standard funding platforms because I can get the same reach with my existing networks, can save us handing over all the commissions I'd pay them, and I can put money to use as it comes in whether I reach my goal or not.

DONATE ON ANY PAGE OF MY SITE AND USE THE INFO FIELD TO LET ME KNOW WHAT IT'S FOR.

THERE'S ALSO THE PAY HERE PAGE

Vinyl Release

Thanks to everyone who helped fund The Outback Musician's Survival Guide!

I'm about to print a third run of physical copies and have had to go to professionals for e-book formatting in order to get that done properly. The physical book is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, as well as about 10 other online booksellers. 

Click here for the first review.

There are at least a couple more in process.

This project is just short of having totally paid for itself. That's pretty good for a self-published book with still limited distribution. I haven't even gotten word as to how many copies the online sellers have moved. I just know that they've been selling. That's all done as print-on-demand through Book Baby, who does my printing and set-up. It'll take about 60-90 days for the numbers to make it to me.

SO, MY NEXT PROJECT IS UNDER WAY!

I'M GOING TO RECORD A VINYL SINGLE!

Last year, vinyl sale in the United States were the highest they've been since 1988. In the United Kingdom, they out-stripped CD and album download sales. This trend has been moving along for the last decade, but is catching on more than ever.

Between your contributions, advance sales, and my own pocket (with profits from other march sales included), I'm looking to raise $1800. This will pay for studio time, design, pressing of 200 vinyl discs, and distribution set-up.

$25 buys an advance copy with shipping included. It's already begun. I've started a list of people who purchased a disc already.

This project will be done as quick as the money is available. In fact, recording could begin pretty soon. Then it's just a matter of pressing discs.

WANT BIGGER PERKS?

Make me an offer for a larger amount and ask me for something in return.

Want me to do a house concert or sit in on a recording?

Looking for a gift of lessons for a friend or family member?

You name an amount and what you feel would be a fair perk.
