With his first novella ready to launch, writer James Powell is considering experimenting with a shorter than average Kickstarter launch… much shorter! A mastermind roundtable of veteran creators discuss James’ launch plan, and share pros and cons of ultra short launches.

Highlights of This Session Include:

  • James’ past crowdfunding experience and why he’s been experimenting (and enjoying) shorter launches?
  • What counts as “a limited edition” and ways to make your book launch special?
  • Why what you allow yourself to NOT care about during a launch is as important as what you do focus on.
  • Plus: The Summer 2024 ComixLaunch Mastermind enrollment period is closing!

Today’s Session is Brought to You By…

…the ComixLaunch MasterMind. Fighting isolation and staying connected with others is more important than ever right now…

If you would you like to meet once a month with a group of serious, like-minded creators to talk about your projects and creative business for mutual support and accountability this year, go to ComixLaunch.com/mastermind and get on the interest list.

New groups will be forming in June and meeting in July!

More About Our Sponsor:

Okay, creators, I have a question for you…

Right now, how many people are there on this planet who know exactly what it is that you’re trying to create this week, this month, this year, and in the next five years and in your lifetime?

And how many of those people ALSO want AND can help you to achieve those big dreams… and are regularly thinking about what they can do to help you on your mission?

Right now, do you have other creators in your corner who you trust to offer good, knowledgeable support and advice about the issues and struggles you face as a comic creator?

Are these creators who are always going to tell it to you straight, even if it’s not what you want to hear, but what you need to hear to level up?

And are you meeting with these people on a regular consistent basis to talk about these things?

Seriously, how many people do you have in your world right now who fit that full description?

If the answer is “NOT ENOUGH”, then I want you to imagine that there was a small group of high performing creators, who you really respect and you admire, and they constantly had you on their minds.

Imagine you were meeting with them regularly for mutual support, brainstorming and accountability.

Would that make a difference in your creative business and in your life?

If so, then I want to invite you to learn more about the ComixLaunch mastermind groups starting up in July.

Just go to ComixLaunch.com/mastermind to get on the interest list. We’ll be accepting applications for just a short time in June to fill brand new groups who start meeting in July.

A ComixLaunch Mastermind Group could be just the thing you’re looking for to have a massive creative breakthrough in the second half of the year.

So again, ComixLaunch.com/mastermind is where you’ll find all that information.

You’ll get on the interest list and potentially get into an awesome ComixLaunch Mastermind group of your own, and hit the ground running with us in July.

If you had to run a 3 day campaign, how would you spend those 72 hours in order to maximize the results of your launch?
