BackerKit FAQ

How does BackerKit crowdfunding work?

Crowdfunding is a collaborative way to bring ideas and projects to life. Project creators post their idea for a project, and backers pledge money to make the project possible. Backers get behind the scenes access and backer-only rewards, which can include exclusive products, special pricing, creative input, content, and more.

To become a backer, select a pledge level that features the reward(s) you would like to receive when the project is successfully completed and make your contribution.

All-or-nothing crowdfunding model: The creator sets a funding goal and a deadline to raise funds. If the project does not meet the goal by the deadline, backers credit cards are not charged and no money changes hands.

Crowdfunding projects can happen at various stages of the creative process. Make sure to check the estimated timeline of when rewards will be delivered. Project creators will keep you updated on the progress toward completion and delivery of your rewards.

Backing a crowdfunding campaign is not the same as purchasing an item from a store. When you back a campaign you are supporting the creation of something new. Rewards are almost always delivered, but are not guaranteed.

When will I be charged for my pledge?

Your payment method will not be charged right away. You will be charged for the amount of your pledge when the campaign ends and the project reaches its funding goal. You will not be charged if the campaign does not reach its funding goal.

What happens after the campaign is over?

The Creator will send out a survey that will ask you for more information about your pledge, your shipping information, additional items you may want to add to your pledge, and collect shipping fees if applicable.

The survey will be sent to the email address we have on file with your pledge.

Any additional payment will be charged when you complete your survey and confirm your order.

Project FAQ

I'm only interested in the lectures, is there a way to buy those?

If you pick the digital only pledge tier, you should be able to add the lectures to your order.

I want both a paperback and an ebook, how do I get both?

If you select any pledge level that includes a paperback book, you will also get an ebook. Sorry I missed putting that information in some of the pledge levels!

Is the advice in this book Autism, ADHD, and Neruodivergent Friendly?

Yes! The chapter on Your Access Needs specifically talks about adapting your creative structures and surroundings to the way your brain works instead of constantly trying to try to make your brain work differently. Most of the writers I know and work with have some sort of neurodivergence and I kept them in mind at all times while writing.

Where will the book be available after the campaign ends?

Yes the book will be available after the campaign. As soon as the project closes I'll open up a pre-order store so that I can continue to collect orders all the way until the book ships (probably in February 2025). After that I'll have it in my online store and eventually I'll put up a version of it for sale on places like Amazon, smashwords, etc. The plan is to keep it in print for quite a while. Thank you for asking!
