Another site taking advantage of the crowds to help fledgling creators is New York-based Pubslush, whose crowdfunding platform not only helps upcoming authors get their books funded, but also adds a charitable element by fighting illiteracy in the developing world. Pubslush has made the process of getting a book into bookstores more open – it no longer acts as the sole publisher, but still offers learning opportunities to help successful users market their work once it’s been funded. Having partnered with the San Francisco Bay charity ParentsPlace to take advantage of their expertise in promoting literacy at home, Pubslush is also adding more strings to its social bow. This year, it has plans to expand into Brazil.
