As I prepare to lock horns with Pete Stauber and the Evil Empire of President Trump, I could use some help with this:
I have ten days of writing and preparation ahead of me to get the text written and organized for this book. Eleven days from now, June 2nd. (or before), I must travel to the office of the Minnesota Secretary of State in St. Paul and file for Congress.
The last five days I have been doing the work of months roughing out two chapters a day. I have another ten days to rough out another six or seven chapters. I’ve been putting the book together like a jigsaw puzzle telling voters what I think they need to know about me and scraping off at least some of what is distracting. I want to publish a book which is at least a little more finely tuned than a Presidential tweet.
So, I hope to crowd-source my proof reading. Anyone interested in either a sneak preview or helping me mount my steed for my Quixote-like charge to topple giants will have their name pushed to the front of a very special line – the people I interview for my Congressional Office staff.
As I write this my inclination is to give no more than two chapters to any individual proof reader. Once they’ve gotten their two chapters I want my proofers to get them back to me in two days. I hope enough volunteers step forward so that each chapter has at least a couple more eyes to pass over other than mine.
I still have plenty of other book publishing related tasks ahead of me. I have to format the book, insert graphics, find a printer, get an ISBN number so that the book can be ordered from Amazon and other outlets and figure out how to set it up for Kindle and Nook downloads.
