After years of planning and organizing and finally getting the perfect solution in development… HATCHpress.com is going to soon go live with a crowdfunding platform for authors to get funds to dedicate themselves to writing along with associated services such as editing, artists, publishing and more.
Although there is a LOT of work still involved, you can now go to HATCHpress.com and sign up for news and access to the closed beta. We haven’t sent invites yet, but it’s in development. As I said, there is a lot of work still planned.
If you are an author, or provide services to authors, please get in touch with me so I can continue customization to match what authors need. Right now, you’ll be able to provide information to encourage those who want to pledge. Once they pledge, depending on how you configured your project, you will get paid immediately or at the end date of your promotion. Payments are made via Paypal or Amazon at this point, with Stripe soon to be added and several others.
HATCHpress will also maintain a store so you can sell directly after the project is completed, you simply log back into your Author account and upload artwork, set a price, and so on. If you have contracted with HATCHpress for editing services, contracting services or other services, you’ll find those available via your dashboard.
Linking to ebook stores on iTunes and Amazon Kindle as well as direct sales of PDFs or other digital delivery of content will be available as well. In essence, you can enable the ability for your readers to get the book they want, how they want, when they want it and read it… easily.
Stay tuned, for the launch of HATCHpress. My company has a lot of projects in the channel, so things move slowly due to me being a one person shop. If you are interested in assisting in a project, drop by HATCHideas.com or send a note to me either here or there.
