How your funding can help?
I have already started buying books wth my writing income and I will continue to do so. But there is only so much I could do. Your funding will help me to buy more books to sell at book fairs.
You may ask why not raise all the money needed to open a bookstore? Well, I would like to start small and learn along the way. Though I run my own writing business now and had worked at bookstores before, setting up a bookstore requires a different set of skills. Moreover, it is more meaningful to sell more books to raise fund than to rely totally on contribution.
Why not try crowd-funding?
I have thought about it but decided later to raise fund on my own because fundraising platforms take a cut of the fund raised regardless if the target is met or not. However, I've adopted the crowdfunding model into my own fundraising endeavour because they've proven to be effective. That means various funding amounts are specified
For the time being, ongoing fund is needed to sustain Booktique. Fundraising goal varies from time to time as books are ordered accordingly to the scale and frequency of the book fairs.
