There are three publishing-specific funding platforms to choose from, plus hundreds more general funding platforms: • Ink shares - they have imprints and occasionally hold contests. 750 pre-orders the minimum to win production, editing and publishing. Doesn't seem very good. • Unbound - seems to display more serious contenders - UK, US or Euro dollars. Authors page.  • Publishizer - a 'virtual' literary agent for popular book ideas. 30% cut of fundings in the pre-order stage. Once you've pitched the book idea with luck, the acquiring editor will guide through the Project posting stage. Then you start marketing and your network or readers who love the idea will jump on board and get a 'deal', like a hardback and their name in the book. The platform takes the payments, but the publisher or you fulfils the purchase.
