That's precisely why you should back book/album projects.
An artist without a hugely successful publishing deal behind will not be able to afford to take the time to write a book. Even a successful author who wants to write a book in a different genre might not be able to get an advance big enough to live on.
Kickstarter is arguably a better deal for both the artist and the readers/listeners than the traditional publisher model
