I'm Writing a Book (With Your Help)
 / 

I’m not going to make this a splashy, OH-MY-GOD-CLICK-THIS-NOW post because you’re going to be hearing a lot about it over the course of the next two months. No, like seriously: a lot.

But, building on the terrific experiences of Mr. Penumbra’s Twenty-Four-Hour Book Store and New Liberal Arts, I’m writing a book! And I’m using Kickstarter as the funding and community platform to do it.

Ta-da!

A special Snarkmarket note: I’m as interested in the new process as I am in the new economics. How do you balance behind-the-scenes updates with secrets and surprises? What’s a tempo that’s engaging but not annoying? How do you effectively solicit ideas? (For some reason—I don’t know why I’m so sure of this—I am just 100% certain that a crucial idea, the key to some puzzle, is going to come from my backers.)

There’s a video intro, so come take a peek.

You had me at the classic Penguin cover, Robin.

I’ll be honest: Pretty proud of the camera-blur matching on that one.
