If you’re an author, or even just an avid reader, you’ll want to take a look at Pubslush. It’s a crowdfunding and analytics platform devoted to books. It’s a place for authors to raise money to get their books published, and it gives readers a way to discover and engage with up-and-coming authors. Plus, for every book sold through the platform, a book will be donated to a child in need.
So what sets Pubslush apart from other crowdfunding sites? The platform offers analytics about a project’s supporters, one-on-one service to authors, a flexible funding system, no upfront costs, and a “Books for Sale” section that helps promote successful campaigns even after they’re complete.
We’re pretty big fans of Pubslush, but we went straight to the source to learn a bit more about the platform. “Pubslush is dedicated to building a community that will connect writers, readers and publishing industry professionals,” said Justine Schofield, Development Director at Pubslush. “We are forging valuable connections in the industry and will continue to grow our company to become a valuable resource for the book world.”
We asked Justine more about how Pubslush came to be, what makes it tick, and what’s coming next.
I just supported Celebrate Pediatric Care @ NYP! on @ThunderclapIt // @nyphospital
New York Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital wanted to celebrate the hospital’s 10th birthday in a big way, so their team organized a Thunderclap to allow their supporters to join the party.
But beyond celebrating 10 years of service, the hospital wanted its community to honor its doctors, nurses, staff and patients.
Take a look at the campaign and join the celebration if New York Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital has made a difference in your life or the life of a loved one.
