Beer and Pavement

Book Ideas [updated]

Posted in Book by SM on August 9, 2012

From time to time, I’ve floated around some book ideas. I have at least three novels, five children’s books, and a memoir or three in my head. I don’t know much about the publishing industry, but I doubt this will make me very much money or fame. So, the planning process for Building International Coalitions Through Beer and Pavement the book begin here. This is ground zero.

Before I begin writing this book (and subsequently avoiding applying for that PhD in information sciences and learning technologies), I need to figure out some topics to discuss. Below are few things I’m floating around. Think of each as a chapter…

  • Preface (or why?)
  • Mirrored Histories (of indie rock and craft beer, of course)
  • My Story
  • What is indie-craft?
  • DIY-Power to the People
  • Macros and Majors
  • A Sustainable Business Model
  • Why does any of this matter?

Basically, this is where you all come in. I need ideas for topics. More than likely, I’ll come up with a few more, but I really value the input from the few of who still read this blog.

Eventually, I hope to draft and workshop these topics here on the blog. I’ve done some of that already, but I want to be more purposeful in my writing and begin to shape up some sort of manuscript I can shop around. Your input will be invaluable in this process. I mean, this is still a coalition after all.

Now, it’s your turn. Tell me what to do in the comments. Another post will happen tomorrow.
