To make this a reality and to make the book affordable I need to print at least 1,000 copies. I could have gone down the traditional route of finding a publisher but I felt a better option would be to take control from the start and make sure the book goes to those who want it.
If you do not get it funded you can publish your book through Lulu.com which do publishing on demand. They will print even 1 copy if you want to for a fair price!. I like their business model very much, check their website for the details. imho for books a far better option than crowd funding.
What I saw on the Indiegogo pages looks quite good. Can you tell what type of customer you are aiming at?
PS, I like the "volume one" on the cover
