Yes, I know better than anyone how LOL-worthy that is.
In 2005, I wrote an album
and released it online
for free. Meg Holle
wrote an ebook to go along with it -- and it took us (mostly me) about three years to forge it into something release-able. Since then, it has been downloaded over 20,000 times, not counting the streaming downloads. Last year, Black Pants Theater
decided to put it on stage
-- and Meg and I have been working on that ever since. The play launches this week.
The re-written book, now vastly improved and with dozens more illustrations, is going to be a part of the play. We bought a block of ISBNs to start a press, "The Author Is Dead
". At some point we'll release a PDF of the new version of the book, but for now it's a real, physical book. Never, ever would have thought I'd produce one.
