Merge Publishing Tries Crowdsourcing with Kickstarter

Merge Publishing has opened a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for it’s book launch. Kickstarter is a nifty way to raise money for projects, especially arts and the written word. Other writers and photographers have been successful for their projects and it just made sense to increase our funds the first year of business.

Merge Publishing   Launch and Book Release by Don Stevens — Kickstarter


The goal is to raise $10,000 and we have until . The money raised will help launch the company in 2014 with a better, more effective plan. We can do more when we have more. The funds raised will help with the start up costs of opening Merge, including some marketing and advertising, as well as registration for conference fees.

Kickstarter will only help fund projects if they reach the goal so we are hoping to do this with writers, readers, publishers, and friends everywhere. Anyone who pledges $25 or more will receive a gift.

We plan on releasing 2-4 books this year, possibly more if we can allocate more funds. To help with your contribution visit our project page and get amazing rewards for merging with us. Also, please let your friends know by sharing the project page.
