Kickstarter 2018 Countdown: Launch Day Plan

Launch day is just a few days away.  This Friday, the Sunnyville Stories Volume 4 Kickstarter will launch.

My plans for the very first day have been finalized.

The Kickstarter will officially launch and go live in the early morning hours sometime between 5:30 and 6:00AM Central Time.

Once that Kickstarter goes live, I’ll update the blog with a link, a Kickstarter widget and a screenshot to capture the moment.  That’ll be in the early morning hours.

The mailing list will get an update too not long after the blog update.  The list will remind of the launch, remind people to pledge and to spread the word with as many as they can.

The Kickstarter information will also be shared throughout social media like Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Tumblr and a few others.  I’m aiming to get the Kickstarter to go viral because that early momentum will be necessary.

Later on, around lunchtime, the press release for the Volume 4 Kickstarter will go live.  By the evening, we’ll have the first Kickstarter project update.

The success of this is crucial.  In spite of my careful planning, it’s hard to say what will happen.  That’s why I’m counting on all of you out there for your pledges and your contacting others.  I can’t do this alone; the people of Sunnyville need your help.

Be ready on Friday Jan. 5.  Both the populace of Sunnyville and I are counting on your support for the Kickstarter.

Kickstarter 2018 Final Countdown: Part 2

It is now the year 2018!  Happy New Year!

Zero hour is approaching.  The Kickstarter is officially launching THIS FRIDAY ON JANUARY 5!!  After careful planning and preparation, the big day is nearly here.

I was working on a press release that has been going out to some blogs and podcasts.  I also will share it here on the blog.  It will be sent out to some of paid advertising services that I’ll be using to promote the Kickstarter.

During the campaign, I will continue work on Sunnyville #16 and should be able to wrap it up.  It’s lucky for me this story only runs 29 pages, albeit it’s much more dramatic than other stories I’ve done.

A little later, I’ll be recording a snippet for Tyler James from Comix Launch to promote the Sunnyville Volume 4 Kickstarter on their podcast.  They had mentioned the Super Special Kickstarter on one last year.  I am also going to be contacting Crowdfunding Exposure and iCrowdnewswire.  They are the paid advertising services I’m using to promote the Kickstarter.

I will need the help of all you readers and Sunnyville fans to make sure this Kickstarter meets or exceeds its funding goal of US$2,500.  We launch on Jan. 5 so mark your calendars and stay tuned for more news.

The clock is ticking down.  I’ll have more news to share tomorrow.

As a reminder, it launches on January 5!

As the clock ticks down, the Kickstarter is taking shape.  It’ll take a little more time but the Kickstarter is coming together.  The video is still being assembled.  The photos of myself interacting with my characters, the drawings I did and the text is being processed in Photoshop.

Kickstarter 2018 Countdown: 15 Days Left!

With the clock ticking down, the Sunnyville Stories Volume 4 Kickstarter has 15 days left until its launch.

The overall battle strategy to fund the Kickstarter will mirror my first one.

Twitter will be a key weapon in the arsenal.  There will be three tweets daily along with a pinned tweet to inform everyone of the Sunnyville Kickstarter and to drive traffic to it.

Facebook will also be used.  There will be one update a day.  Plus there will be paid boosted ads to help get exposure of the Kickstarter.  (I’ll talk about paid advertising shortly.)   Continue reading

Baruch Alumni Magazine Fall 2018/Winter 2018

Baruch College of New York City was my alma mater.  I earned a degree in creative writing from this college back in 2003.  But wait a minute…what is this surprise I’m talking about?  What does this magazine have to do with Sunnyville?

Why, this!

Max West and Sunnyville Stories in Baruch Alumni magazine

They ran a page on myself and my comics!  Pretty cool, uh?

Stay tuned for more news on the Kickstarter!  It launches on Jan. 5!
