June Ask Me (Almost) Anything
It's been a busy couple weeks, but there's always time to run this one back.
I know I know, the writing has been a little slow coming out of The Son Do Move lately, but I promise there’s a (pretty good, I think?) reason.
I’ve been trying to wrap up this manuscript so we can get this book out into the world!
I hit a major milestone in the past week. We reached 100% of the funding goal for this book. I went about this in a pretty unconventional way. After reflecting on the compensation models, I wasn’t too excited about pursuing a traditional publishing agreement. At the same time, I didn’t feel like I had the capacity or expertise to self-publish this book on the scale I wanted to. So, I entered an agreement with Lake Drive Books, a hybrid publisher that seemed just right for what I was trying to do.
But I didn’t stop there. I launched an ambitious crowdfunding campaign that would enable us to get this done at what I’m hoping is a pretty high level. And this week, I got to breath a sigh of relief as I witnessed at least one of these gambles I took pay off.
Thank you to each and every person who contributed! And if you didn’t (but wanted to), you can still give here. GoFundMe actually takes a chunk of those contributions, so any donations would be GREATLY appreciated. If you’re not a fan of giving via GoFundMe, you can find other ways to donate here.
But enough about the book (for now 🌚).
I do plan on breaking y’all off with a little reflection from our trip to Utah.
