Michael suggests, after quite a bit of research, that he thinks GoFundMe will be a better choice for crowdfunding. I am stricken with disappointment as a vision of thousands of disasters that have befallen people flank my little Café Mama breastfeeding project. Kickstarter seems so chic, so hip, so... "product oriented." I research GoFundMe and find a number of non-disaster projects, a much better funding probability and give it the go-ahead.
I'll use Kickstarter for my books. :-)
