Disclaimer: I am not a psychologist, anthropologist, or even much of a proper scientist (computer scientists don't count, ology or not). I am a monkey with a magic typewriter that makes my words appear on your screen. Read on.
Hot on the heels of my article on why Kickstarter, and all other crowdfunding platforms, need to take a role in protecting the investment of project backers, another very high profile project has gone kaput.
There is no guarantee that people that post projects on ButterStarter will deliver on their projects, use the money to implement their projects, or that the completed projects will meet backers' expectations.
As CW Lynch I am a writer of comics, graphic novels, screenplays, books, and a variety of other things.
I have written for a wide range of publications and publishers in the UK and the US including The Judge Dredd Megazine, Arcana, Markosia, Metaverse, The Psychedelic Journal of Time Travel, 2026 Books, Accent UK, Something Wicked, The Sorrow, The Mad Scientist Journal, KZine, Wilde Times, Another Realm, 10thology, Midnight Hour, and Insomnia Publications.
In 2015 I wrote and co-produced the short "The Black Room", now available to watch on Amazon Prime. In 2017 I co-wrote and successfully crowd-funded my first feature length film, "OffWorld".
