And we're off!
Okay, so the crowd-funding campaign has begun. It's been quite a journey just to get to this point. After finishing a good first draft of the book in January 2015 I started writing to agents and editors - but all to no avail. It wasn't until later in the year that I stumbled upon Unbound and realised what a perfect fit it was, not only for me, but for the ideas I discuss in the book.
There is an entire section on peer-to-peer networks and how they are transforming society. So it seems more than fitting that the book should be published through one of these "disruptive" new approaches to traditional publishing. Here at Unbound the crowd decides, somewhat upending the traditional roll of agent and editor, just as in sortition the traditional roll of politician is threatened.
So it all begins. Three months to reach the book's funding target. Then more work revising and polishing if it's successful.
Thanks for joining me on this journey. Brett
