So ... It’s been over a year.
Over a year since I pushed aside my tablet, put down the mic, and walked away from SmartHotFun.
A lot has happened in that year.
My very first nephew was born...
... I met the love of my life ...
...and I moved to New York.
In that time, I also mostly finished a book.
If you read SmartHotFun previously, much of the content you’ll find in the history section is incorporated into this book.
There’s also a great deal of content created from my time as a Sex Educator.
And like I said, it’s mostly finished. (Proofread and everything.)
I had planned to publish it on Kindle Direct Publishing, but every time I imagined my book there … it felt like something was missing.
So I procrastinated.
And then one day, it happened.
An old buddy of mine from college, Pat Flynn, wrote a book called "Let Go".
Only, it wasn’t just a book. It was more than that. It was videos and pictures and design.
It. Was. Awesome. I wanted in.
I knew immediately that this was the platform I had been waiting for.
Sexuality education has always required that I use language, pictures, video and participation to help people understand a topic that is often unfamiliar and complicated.
Snippet gives me the ability to take that strategy, and use it to publish my content. I couldn't be more stoked.
Even though Snippet is currently still in Beta testing, they've created a really helpful writer's packet for those of us who want to publish content once they onboard more writers.
So for the next … however long it takes … I’m going to take my book, chapter-by-chapter, and make it Snippet ready.
I’m going to use this blog to track my progress.
As I create the content that will transform my book into a snippet, I'm going to share my progress here.
I figured since SmartHotFun was already set up, using it to keep me dedicated would be a good call.
Throughout the process, I'll share content, challenges, successes, strategies, and whatever else I think would be worth sharing about what it's like to transform a book into a Snippet.
Want to help? Sign up for Chapter Previews
Even though I have some great ideas about where multimedia is needed in my book, I’m also interested to know where other people think content would be helpful.
If you want to be a part of helping me make this happen, sign up for Chapter Previews by clicking this link or by entering your info into the sidebar.
When you sign up, you’ll get an email every time I start working on a new chapter.
In that email, you'll get a .pdf file of the chapter I’m currently working on and I’ll share my game-plan for that chapter.
(You also don’t have to help if you sign up. If you just want the previews, that’s cool too!)
In any case! That’s it.
I’m stoked to begin this journey, and I can’t wait to hear your insights as I transform my book into a Snippet!
Glad to Be Back
