I found the following article interesting, given the number of posts over the last few months about book-publishing, eBooks, the pricing-models of B&N, Amazon, etc. The website that the previous link discusses is here.

When American publishers in the 1820s turned down the opportunity to publish his water colors, John James Audubon raised the equivalent of $2 million from subscriptions, art sales, lectures and even the sale of furs to publish his celebrated Birds of America. If crowd funding was good enough for Audubon, it’s definitely good enough for us.

This is officially on my note list to investigate "before the next ice age". I am itching to try a little writing, but it's always been the usual caveats.

More news to follow in the medium future.

One turn-off for me is that the main website says it's for crowd-sourcing only non-fiction.
