As regular readers will recall, last winter we wrote and self-published a 100-page ebook on social media marketing. In terms of our goals for the project, it’s been a success.
Two weeks later, we had interest from No Starch Press, a San Francisco publisher with the slogan, “the finest in geek entertainment”. They have American distribution through O’Reilly Media, one of the giants of tech publishing.
We’ve since signed a contract, and have until the early fall to basically double the length of our ebook manuscript. It’s going to be a busy summer, but it’ll be cool to have a real dead-tree edition to wave around.
We’re going to change the title of the book, though we haven’t decided on the new title quite yet. We’ll probably blog more regularly on our ebook blog, writing about the process of expanding the book and possibly posting new draft material.
