Crowdfunding sought for WDC director’s book
Democracy Campaign director Mike McCabe’s book, Blue Jeans in High Places: The Coming Makeover of American Politics, is coming soon. Mike is teaming up with the local independent publisher Little Creek Press to launch a Kickstarter campaign to enable it to reach as many readers as possible. The appeal also provides a sneak peek at what the book is about.

If you are familiar with crowdfunding, you know the drill. If you have not participated in a Kickstarter campaign before, the appeal has 30 days to reach its goal. You can pledge support in any amount. Whatever amount you pledge won’t be charged to your credit card unless enough others respond to the appeal and the goal is reached. That’s why successful Kickstarter campaigns depend on people sharing the link to these online appeals via email and social media like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn.
