)-- Josh Covington, the author of In Search of Monsters, a collection of short stories, has begun revolutionizing the traditional publishing industry by providing exclusive offerings through the creator investment website Kickstarter.com. By utilizing the Kickstarter platform to provide a unique reader experience, offering special editions of In Search of Monsters for sale through a tiered support/reward structure, Covington hopes to bring his writing to a new level of passionate readers.
“My goal is to make supporters feel as though they have as much of an emotional investment in this project as I do by making the rewards as unique and personal as possible,” said Josh Covington, author of In Search of Monsters. “Through this project, I want people to get a glimpse of what it’s like to create, to see what goes into that process.
Kickstarter is a website designed to help creators get their ideas funded by “backers” at various levels of support that start at just $1. Backers of Covington’s project will be rewarded with exclusive offers including signed, hardcover, and special editions of In Search of Monsters which include special commentary preceding each story, describing the inspiration and evolution from idea to publication. Also available is a Choose Your Own Adventure Edition, where backers get the chance to be written into a story created just for them by picking what the characters do and how the plot evolves, something that’s never before been done in the world of publishing.
Covington’s Kickstarter project will run through January. To become a backer, visit Kickstarter.com. For more information or to request an interview with the author, please visit www.JoshCovington.com or email InSearchofMonstersBook@gmail.com.
