Want to co-author
or help on a project?
I am looking to co-author a number of books. Read through these projects, as one may catch your attention.
It can be fun to share ideas, use shared files, and keep the project moving forward through quasi-accountability. I'd love to talk with you if you're a researcher, writer, editor, test-reader, etc. and have an interest in one of these books. I'm also open to somebody being a liaison to the publisher.
I seldom find time to explain each of these projects to the right person. So I've provided a list below of partially completed projects that I'd like to continue ... if I can find one or more people to join that project.
Finally, I'm very open to generously sharing the proceeds. But FYI there isn't much money to be made in authoring books, so jump on board if it looks like the right project (instead of a money maker).
