Ryan Dunlap is no stranger to online fundraising site Kickstarter.  He has successfully used the site to fund a few projects.  Previously, he exceeded his $3,000 goal for his book and film project The Wind Merchant and Greyscale.  The project was a steampunk adventure novel and “neo-noir” film. 
He has done it again with the children’s book, The Littlest Clockwork inspired by his previous novel.  As of today Dunlap has raised $6,136.00 surpassing the initial goal of $6,000.
Budding writers out there trying to find a way to make their print dreams come true site like Kickstarter are great resources.  As Dunlap has proven with hard work and word-of-mouth it is possible.  There are those out there willing to pledge for an interesting and original story.
