Today was a fun day. As I may have mentioned earlier I am working with a venture capital enabling company called Kickstarter.com. I described them earlier. One of the strongly suggested ‘hooks’ that make the struggling artists on their site successful is a personal video. I made an under 5 minute video and moved it to Kickstarter.
I have been building my little corner of that site in preparation for launching the funding imitative. With the video completed I launched the funding campaign, from today until September 24. You can find my page at
I think that I have found a unique hook for helping investors want to contribute and to upgrade to a first edition hardcopy.

About This Project
BE PERSONALLY MEMORIALIZED, BY NAME, IN THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS – FOREVER!
This book needed to be written. There are fewer than two dozen books listed on the Internet (Bing) that were written by, and from, the assignees perspective. “Views” is complete, ready to go to Line-editing, and then to publishing – in time for this year’s Holiday season. You are Guaranteed to receive an autographed book. I will add your name as a Funding Sponsor and ship it off to the Editor when funding is secured.
10% of the author profits have been pledged to the American Cancer Society in honor of my beloved wife Lynn.
“Views” will be between 280-300 pages and will be available in Hard Cover, Soft Cover, and e-Book formats, using the widest range of distribution outlets.
