Keith Knight, award-winning cartoonist of The K Chronicles and The Knight Life, last year raised $40,000 on Kickstarter in order to draw his autobiographical graphic novel I Was A Teenage Michael Jackson Impersonator! (expected next year).
Now, he’s telling you how to be successful in the same venue by selling a zine, “25 Steps to a Better Kickstarter Campaign”. (Visit his store page and scroll down to find it.) It’s $10, which includes postage. I haven’t seen it, so I don’t know how long or content-packed it is, but I imagine that this is only the first of many “you can make money on Kickstarter!” books to come. Knight wrote an earlier article for the Washington Post; this booklet expands on those tips.
It’s a clever way to turn the experience into yet another source of potential income, and goodness knows that there’s demand for it, particularly from those who haven’t yet realized that a successful Kickstarter campaign is a huge amount of work, not just a way to get free money.
