I honestly hadn't considered such an approach. Not a bad idea.
Although I might need a disclaimer right up until I send everything into the printer. heh... it seems like I always find something to adjust at the last minute.

this one isn't an official failure yet but will be. I wonder how Kickstarter allows stuff like this to legally get through?

Nightmare on Elm Street(working title) by Joshua Meeks — Kickstarter

here's this guy's "bio"
I never got to film school. Took T.V Prod in High School. And that was it. Everything else. I taught myself or learn from youtuber's. . You can learn almost anything from home and online. As far, as what I've done. Years ago. All my work was lost in a fire at my parents house. I could never recover any of it and life happens. And like I said. I do have Claudia Well(BTTF) interested in being in this. As well as, A few other (prof) actors.

I hope she won't be offended if her name isn't spelled correctly in the credits for his film if, it ever. Comes to be.

This is an unofficial prequel to, the first movie. With real actors and professional help. Claudia Wells and a few surprises.


Surprises. Like. Punctuation in the, wrong places.

If you read it with a professional wrestler's voice (Randy "The Macho Man" Savage probably works best) it actually makes perfect sense.

My vote is he was out of breath running from IP lawyers and his high school English teacher.

*sigh* I really need a new venue that isn't Kickstarter to fund new releases.

Lloyd,

Don't be disheartened.  KS isn't the place it was a few years ago but I believe people are still supporting projects where creators have good track records and communicate well.  Am I going to make $100k on my project?  Of course not.  Do I carefully plan each KS using a CBA xls?  Hell yes.  [btw:  if KS added a step that forced people to put numbers in a tool to calculate costs/expenses and margins, we'd have a lot less failures - some people just have no idea how to calculate ROI.]

Personally, I'm okay with selling 50-100 books and making a small profit - this money goes right in to art for the next book anyway.  It's not like I'm funding a Disney trip with it  [after all, I'm not the Huntons   :roll:  ]

Keep at it my friend!  Your work is good and people will support it!

Yea there are a couple folks doing it well. I'd ask Jeff Talanian for pointers as well.
But definitely good luck!

Looks like your project funded, no?

Agreed, I still back all the Onyx Path Publishing (White Wolf) deluxe edition kickstarters. They have never failed and always come through. Some others, not so much as evident in this post. I'm still hassling with Chenault Publishing on getting all the add-ons from the Storyteller's Thesaurus for over 6 months. It's like how hard is it to correct not sending me items. Just send them!

I agree with this sentiment.  I have the same issue with Chaosium.  Other people seem have gotten their items and Chaosium has told me "they should be at the post office" but 4 months later I can't get a response from anyone there and no package.
