Kickstarter Costs Writeup

December 5th, 2016
kickstarter  [html]
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.
