In this episode of Art of the Kickstarter, we spoke with Chad Hickman and Garret Prather, creators of Yardball. This Kickstarter campaign has earned the support of almost 2,000 backers, which pushes Yardball's motto, the ball for all. Yardball started as a tape ball that was tossed in the office, and the team worked through multiple prototypes and name changes to get ready for launch. Listen to learn how Chad and Garret took a ball of tape and transformed it into Yardball. Short on time? Here's what we talked about. Marketing looks different for every product, and Yardball's marketing involved kids playing with it in the yard and people tossing it around at tailgates. Sandlot Goods originally made leather goods as a hobby, which led to the creation of Kansas City merchandise. Once they began creating pandemic-related products, like testing gowns and masks, they made connections that helped them launch the rest of their leather goods line. Naming a product is challenging. It needs to be catchy, not under trademark or copyright, and fit your brand's personality. Learn how the Yardball team landed on “Yardball.” The team decided to test out crowdfunding with Yardball to provide market validation and give them the confidence to scale.

Begun as a meme account in 2017, Litquidity has amassed 1 million social media followers across Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and TikTok, specializing in the dark arts of “dank memes” that poke fun at the weird world of finance. The account, run pseudonymously by a former trader who goes by Lit, has spawned a daily news summary email (Exec Sum) with 160,000 subscribers, podcast (Big Swinging Decks), investment fund, merch and more, as part of a $2 million business. Some key takeaways: Find underserved audiences. The world is not short on finance news. But what Lit found as a young investment analyst is that little of the coverage captured the experience of being in the (well-compensated) rank and file of finance. “One thing that I felt was lacking was real insider baseball-type humor,” Lit said. “You look at CNBC or Bloomberg, it's probably people who aren't insiders that are reporting on the news or talking about the stock markets.” Memes are top of the funnel. Litquidity began as a meme account, attracting advertisers as its revenue source. But Lit felt that could only go so far – “I don't think they're like the highest value monetization paths to go through because you'll saturate your audience with ads, and people hate ads” – so he spun off Exec Sum, a newsletter that pithily summarizes the days finance and markets news. And more importantly, provides valuable surface area for high-value ads. “I really thought of how can I provide value to my audience in a way that would also make sense monetarily.” Publishing and investing mesh. Like Packy McCormick and Anthony Pompliano, Lit sees the opportunity to use his publishing reach as a way to expand his investmenting by raising a fund. Eventually, he sees Liquidity as more of an investment fund with a publishing arm rather than vice versa. “That's how I want that to be viewed going forward as I continue to build out the credibility and the track record.” Expanding beyond a personal brand is hard. Recently, Litquidity lost its “only employee” – there are a handful of part-timers – when Mark Moran split to focus on an investor relations play, Equity Animal. Expanding a media company tied to a person, even one who uses a pseudonym, is tricky. “One of the things that I found difficult was having the entire brand being ied by my humor and my voice,” he said. “If you start to introduce other creators or elements who don't fit that, then it starts to dilute that brand.”

The growth of print books is matching the growth of e-books. The latest book industry report shows paperbacks still accounts for 90 percent of the market. Publishers Association of New Zealand president Graham Cosslett told Heather du Plessis-Allan the report covers bookshops and exports. There's also been a growth in Maori language books. “We've seen in the last year a 40 percent year on growth of total unit sales, and that's actually on the back of 24 percent growth the previous year.” LISTEN ABOVESee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
On this episode of the Pub Date podcast we talk about the difference between indie and small press publishing. The wonderful thing about becoming a published author is that there isn't a one-size-fits-all approach to going from idea to final book. If you're thinking about becoming an author, make sure you do your homework and that the math makes sense. At the end of the day, your book is another product that you deliver to your audience.

Hello and welcome to another episode of the podcast - excited to be here to talk about cookbook publishing entitlement and expectations.. We often come to the table of publishing with expectations about how a publisher should act or react to what we send to them. We feel entitled to them responding or replying in a certain way or time to anything we submit to them and we let whether they respond or not dictate how we feel about ourselves and our projects. Today on the podcast I provide some insight about who publishers are and what they want from writers, and in turn what we can do to possibly attract a publisher into our life. Things We Mention In This Episode: World Central Kitchen Chicago Manual of Style Free Masterclass: How to Get Paid to Write a Cookbook and Get it Published
Mark interviews S.W. Millar about his new book - How to Write Brilliant Beginnings: Crafting Your Novel's Opening Chapters Made Easy. Prior to the main segment, Mark shares a brief personal update, comments from recent episodes, and a word about this episode's sponsor. You can learn more about how you can get your work distributed to retailers and library systems around the world at starkreflections.ca/Findaway. In their conversation, Mark and Shane talk about: Shane's background as an urban fantasy writer and a certified Story Editor Writing his first novel back in 2010, pulling it out of a drawer in 2015 and realizing how much it was lacking, and then engaging in a long period of study to better his craft and understanding of the business Wanting to write the kind of books he needed when he was first starting out and wanting to learn How reading Jim Butcher's Harry Desden files novels inspired Shane to want to write similar tales Realizing that he wanted to train as a writer-friendly editor with Kristina Stanley from Fictionary The importance of having a degree of distance when you are taking in feedback from editors or readers Shane's preference for the type of fiction he prefers to edit: Urban fantasy, Thrillers, and Science-Fictio How to Write Brilliant Beginnings, Shane's new book, and why it is such an important element to help with sales The invisible/subtle question that you set up so that, in the reader's mind, they are compelled to keep reading to find the answer to it Why it is equally compelling to end your chapters, particularly the first two or three chapters, which as much of a hook as possible That "just one more principal" The idea of a character "going about their current 'flawed' existence" How everything a character sees and experiences is filtered through their wound and scar Giving your main character something very unique to them as an identifier The five top things that you should give your character for them to be three dimensional and compelling to readers The value of opening the novel with some type of conflict or action beat When ending chapters or cutting scenes, the element of cutting it off BEFORE the resolution that can compel the reader to keep reading The way that old television programs, such as Batman that always cut to a commercial break with a hook that would make the audience want to keep watching to find out how it was resolved That "know, like, and trust" thing which can be so important when engaging in social media The importance of open-ended questions that can lead to engagement and detailed answers Shane's books: How to Write Brilliant Beginnings, How to Plot Your Novel and How to Write Novels Fast And more... After the interview, Mark reflects on distance and objectivity as well as that end of chapter "cut to commercial" hook. Links of Interest: S. W.

Josh O'Neill is a comics writer and editor, and co-owner of the Philadelphia-based publishing company, Beehive Books. Using Kickstarter, Josh and his business partner Maëlle Doliveux, publish books and literary objects too risky for traditional publishers.

More from the episode Josh explains how he went from working in a local video store to running a publishing company. The pros and cons of crowdfunding, and why traditional publishers are risk-averse. How a community of local artists inspires and sustains Beehive. Josh talks about starting over after shutting down his first business, Locust Moon Comics.

In this episode of Art of the Kickstart, we spoke with Hunter Sparrow, Magpie's Marketing and Sales Analyst. Magpie's most recent campaign, Kiko, garnered the support of over 400 backers and raised above $50,000. The team focused on the feedback from their audience and lessons they've learned from previous campaigns to help improve and develop their campaign. Listen to learn more about the team's approach to launching Kiko on Kickstarter. Short on time? Here's what we talked about. When COVID changed the costs associated with building their product, Magpie canceled Kiko's campaign, even though it was fully funded. Learn how that positively affected their relationship with backers. The team heavily relied on backer feedback to improve Kiko's design. Since then, they've narrowed their focus by improving safety and cross-cultural differences with marketing in order to expand into a new market. Establishing trust early in a campaign is vital for campaign creators on Kickstarter and other crowdfunding platforms. Hunter describes how trust is the most important thing creators can build.

Introduction “How did the universe come into existence?” It's a question that most of the world's religions seek to answer. According to the Abrahamic faiths, the world can only exist with the existence of a being who was not caused by something other than itself – and this they call ‘Yahweh', ‘Allāh', or ‘God'. Philosophical arguments to this end come in many forms, one of which – from the medieval Islamic philosopher Ibn Sina (known in the West as ‘Avicenna') – claims that we can prove the existence of this necessary being with absolute certainty. If something can exist there must be an uncaused being, and from this concept alone, Avicenna says that we can deduce every other property that Muslims attribute to Allāh. In this interview, we'll be discussing Avicenna and the philosophy of Islam with Dr Mohammad Saleh Zarepour. Currently Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Manchester, Dr Zarepour completed his first PhD at the Tarbiat Modares University in Iran and his second PhD at the University of Cambridge. Publishing extensively in philosophy of religion – and having worked on major initiatives such as the Global Philosophy of Religion Project – it is safe to say that Saleh is one of the world's leading experts in Islamic philosophy. Islam claims to solve the problem of existence, but its implications extend far beyond the origin of the cosmos. Allāh is a being invested in his creation – a being that will judge, reward, or punish us for our good and bad deeds, who permits us to live and to suffer – and differs from the God of Judaism and Christianity in his nature and actions. Thus, we should ask not only whether belief in Allāh's necessity is reasonable, but whether the beliefs of Muslims are more (or less) reasonable than those of their Abrahamic cousins. This episode is produced in partnership with The Global Philosophy of Religion Project at University of Birmingham, led by Yujin Nagasawa and funded by the John Templeton Foundation. Contents Part I. Allāh Part II. Further Analysis and Discussion Links Mohammad Saleh Zarepour (website). Mohammad Saleh Zarepour, Necessary Existence and Monotheism (book).

Coach Sarah and I discuss the might of the written word…and what about the value of our stories shared anyway? Both regarding the writer awhile the reader, we consider the realities of publishing our life's experiences…personal and professional. How to do it…self-publish, hybrid publishing, or working with a formal publisher? What happens after writing for weeks or even years, you realize the need to either start over or re-write the lost sort-out of your most burdensome inner trauma? Sarah and I cross paths with our juxtaposed youthful reading and writing experience. We discuss…when we write, how much we write, jacket or no jacket, working online and offline, and writing in big chunks of time away from home or squirreled away during private quiet minutes adjacent to all our daily distractions. I touch on my massively inward journey, keeping score and the process of it all. After 6.49 hours of writing per day on average for two and a half years, and sometimes writing 10, 12, or even 18 hours at a time, I explain my commitment alongside my sacrifice to accomplish the task. We chase our tails a bit over the notion of personal pain and trauma processing on paper, versus after the fact.In summary, we both agree on the critical nature of reading aloud, and working with programs utilizing Read Aloud functionality. Finally, how about the on-the-shelf publishing…printing small or large runs…print it first, or record the audio book first, and why? The emotional content runs deep as we share our experiences of actually writing a book versus not writing a book, and the chore of not only writing, but publishing, and bringing our works forward to the world.

Emma Kennedy is quite possibly the most multi-talented podcast guest I've interviewed. The 55-year-old is an accomplished author, producer, playwright, TV scriptwriter, she wrote The Kennedys, a 2015 BBC comedy based on her memoir of family holidays in the 1970s, The Tent, The Bucket and Me, and has contributed to numerous other shows including Miranda and Jonathon Creek. She has acted in sitcoms, worked with Mel & Sue, holds a Guinness Record and is a Celebrity Masterchef winner (2012). And, no doubt, you will recognise her voice from the radio because she does that, too.Emma began performing at Oxford University, becoming President of The Oxford Revue and a regular fixture at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. On graduating, she trained as a solicitor and for three years practised law in London, including a stint working with Sir Keir Starmer. But in 1995, much to her mum's dismay, she left the legal world to focus on writing and the creative arts. Publishing her first novel, How To Bring Up Your Parents, in 2007, she has since released eleven books, including the Wilma Tenderfoot series of children's books. Her latest publication, Letters From Brenda, is her most personal to date. Simultaneously hilarious and heartbreaking - I was in tears by page four - it is an incredibly moving tribute to her late mum, Brenda; who suffered from an undiagnosed mental illness throughout her life. Three years after her mum's death, Emma's father sold the family home and the new owner uncovered a pile of lost letters (written by Brenda) hidden in two suitcases in the loft. Eventually, Emma read through the letters (published unedited ' apart from the bits that are so libellous, no sensible editor would allow them') and used writing the book to work out what was wrong with her complex, charismatic, unpredictable mother. The woman she adored. ' My mother and I had a complicated relationship: she was difficult and volatile, but I knew that wasn't the whole story. In fact, I realised, I didn't really know her story at all.'Anyone who grew up in the 1970s, an era when families simply didn't talk about the important stuff, when serious issues like mental health were brushed under the Axminster, will relate to this.In this episode, she talks candidly about her complex relationship with Brenda and how writing the book helped her to overcome the guilt she felt about not addressing her mum's illness. Along the way we discuss her successful career in TV, radio and comedy, together with her newfound love of health and fitness. And of course, we cover the usual TNMA topics such as ageing and menopause.I thoroughly enjoyed chatting to Emma; she is charming, friendly, witty and wise.
