https://www.indiegogo.com/ seems to be the best for flexible funding, because you'll get your funds whether or not you meet your goal.

They suggest to write about the following things:
Short Summary

Contributors fund ideas they can be passionate about and to people they trust. Here are some things to do in this section:
  • Introduce yourself and your background.
  • Briefly describe your campaign and why it's important to you.
  • Express the magnitude of what contributors will help you achieve.
Remember, keep it concise, yet personal. Ask yourself: if someone stopped reading here would they be ready to make a contribution?


What We Need & What You Get

Break it down for folks in more detail:
  • Explain how much funding you need and where it's going. Be transparent and specific-people need to trust you to want to fund you.
  • Tell people about your unique perks. Get them excited!
  • Describe where the funds go if you don't reach your entire goal.

The Impact
Feel free to explain more about your campaign and let people know the difference their contribution will make:
  • Explain why your project is valuable to the contributor and to the world.
  • Point out your successful track record with projects like this (if you have one).
  • Make it real for people and build trust.

..and add a good eyecatching picture (or even video, like s4tch did).
Feel free to edit as you see fit

Hello, we are an international group of friends of Dusan, pronounced Dooshahn, we have been congregating on an 'eclectic' football forum for the last twenty some years.
Dusan is from Serbia and has grown before our very own eyes into an esthete of a man. More specifically, he has been a Russian literature enthusiast, his handle on the forum is Dostoevsky no less.
Being the industrious young man that he is, he took up an active approach to his passion and decided to write a book in the mold of his idols. However, once done with his book, he had to be brought back to earth with the tedious realities of publishing. Serbia is a country that was involved in a war not long ago and is slowly rebuilding its economy. In this climate, young people find it very hard to have jobs or savings to cater to their passions.
Dusko, as we call him, has been trying for over a year to get his book published to no avail.
So we are taking a page out of this industrious man's book, and we are going to get him published!

I really like how it's written @GordoDeCentral :tup:. Good luck @Dostoevsky :tup:!


Finally have my job interview today for position that I really want and just now I broke the bonding that had been on one of my front teeth for 10 years since I originally broke it.

I am now missing half of a front tooth with no time to go to dentist :baus:

damn guys, I got offline for 12h and when I come back I get emotional and an erection.

Doesn't even matter if this goes through or not but thanks a bunch. Means a bunch to me. You guys are really great. I'm struggling with work, doing extra hours without payment too, so I'm drained as fuck.

I'm horrible at taking pics, let alone making a video. I'd even accept donations from Tuz even if I have to pay back in the future. But I'd need a lot of time and no pressure to return the money as it's pretty hard to get it at the moment. So even small donations are fine but you gotta give me space to return it, at least half a year lol. Dunno about donations outside of Tuz. They are strangers to me haha
Does your book already has a title?

Is it a novel?

...and you want to publish it in serbian, right? ..or english? :shifty:

He kinda looked like he needed a good shower... :shifty:

Hahaha! I love that hacker mentality. Like the clowns that are trying to optimize for their 10-day Vipassana retreats and claim they can 4-hour-workweek hack that crap down to 3 hours. :lol:

@Post Ironic any recommendations for summer fragrances?
Isn't Sciopero dei rifiuti di Napoli ready for release about now that the ground is warming up in the springtime?

What a perfect result on the final round at The Masters
There will be much grabbing of skanks by the pu%%y,

So that's what happened to Claudio's hand? :grin:

Sorry to hear, mate.

This sounds so good! I'd bet my ass it's not me how good it is.

You guys are way too awesome. I'm laughing finally.

Yes! Pisma (Letters). It's in Serbian. My English is nowhere near the level to write the book. Translation is very expensive too. That alone would be around 2k euros. Translating into Russian would be double that amount. Crazy stuff.

It's a collection of letters but it basically forms a novel since it's connected.

How many copies does €600 buy you? Also, where will they get distributed? If you are going to set up an Indiegogo page, it helps if your post campaign plan is well articulated.
Are ebooks a thing in Serbia? You can self publish those at close to zero cost.

I like the idea. Epistolary novels can be quite good.

Have you read any Mikhail Shishkin? One of the best contemporary novelists out there imo. His epistolary novel Pismovnik (The Light and the Dark english translation) is excellent.

Some of my favourites in the style are Goethe's Sorrows of Young Werther, Hölderlin's Hyperion, and I always especially loved Montesquieu's Lettre's Persanes. If you haven't read the last, I highly recommend you do. :)

Epistolary novel! That's the word! :D

By the way, I gotta say that I can hardly digest topics such as love. Not that I'm ashamed of the emotion nor because I think such books are for pussies, but it's that I can hardly feel the emotion and sincerity when I read it. I wrote about it, though. It was actually Goethe's Werther that inspired me! I read it and it blew my mind away. I loved the simplicity and the emotion that I couldn't find anywhere. Only later I heard that Napoleon read the book seven times.

Haven't read the others that you mentioned. :) Sounds tempting, tho. Will definitely try to find the last book you mentioned.
