  • Kickstarter Costs Writeup

    December 5th, 2016
    kickstarter
    I've distributed most of the books I printed through my kickstarter project, so I thought I would quickly write up the financials for future reference.

    I had initially offered hardcover and softcover at two different prices, but after all the orders were in I realized that volume pricing meant it was actually cheaper to print just hardcover, so everyone ended up getting the nicer books.

    Expenses

    $34.49 Bookbaby proof copy printing
    $809.40 Bookbaby printing (30 copies)
    $89.64 Kickstarter fees (8.4%)
    $29.52 USPS shipping (7 @ $3.09, one box of 12 @ $7.89, all media mail)
    $14.37 FedEx Store mailing supplies
    $977.42 total

    Income

    $24 9 PDFs @ $1, plus $15 in extra contributions
    $240 8 softcover @ $30
    $58 1 hardcover proof @ $58
    $390 5 hardcover @ $78
    $40 1 sold in person, not through kickstarter
    $360 1 bulk buy (2 hard, 10 soft)
    $1,112 total

    This leaves me with $134.58, which I've donated to the Against Malaria Foundation.

    On the Beach

    I really like going in the water and this beach is a great place for building sand castles and boogie boarding. I also like trying to float on top of big waves. I'm not very good at it. I only float on the flat waves.
