Update on the Underground Book
8-7-09: Initial release
8-8-09: Added a subsection on the pricing of the book…oh wait, what price?
All right so before I finally sign off and enjoy a few days of not posting on the blog, I wanted to give you guys a quick update on the book I have been working on the side.
Well, it is more of an e-book. I don’t want to steal the thunder away from the book, but it is a work in progress. In it I really want to touch upon some personal stuff that I have encountered in my life, as well as what I have witnessed in other people’s lives. We are in the 21st century, and there is a lot of great content to be learned.
With that said, the first chapter lays down the groundwork of the book, as well as hint to the journey the book will take the reader. The second chapter is devoted the mind of a pirate, and I want to show some insight that pirates are as regular people. In fact, you may encounter many of them on the street without knowing it!
For the rest of the book, it is up in the air. Do I focus specific articles on console modding? Heck, I could devote a whole PDF book to just PS2 modding itself. Or should I put in a few articles on PC maintenance? A chapter on how to defend yourself against viruses and spyware? A chapter on underground material so sick it makes baby Jesus cry?
I have no idea yet! But I assure you, once I get there, it will be worth it. Anyway, below is a teaser of the table of contents so far! I need a graphics artist to help develop a picture for the cover, so if you know Photoshop, let me know!
Wait, don’t leave us hanging? How you going to distribute/price it?
I knew this was coming, and I talk about the decision in the e-book alot. The e-book will be free. It will be distributed via pdf here on the blog, as well as all my popular forums that I visit. If it makes sense, I could distribute via torrents also. I can’t believe why I am doing what I am doing, and probably a lot of you out there won’t believe why I am doing what I am doing.
Lots of hours invested into a book…no financial gain. You would think I am very stupid. >_> Well, once you read the book, we’ll see who is stupid then. Trust me, I covered this topic in the book as well. LOL!
