Almost Super

My good friend, Matthew Buckley, author of Chickens in the Headlights, taught a workshop at the LDS Storymakers conference this weekend about thinking outside the box. Because of the Internet the music and television industries have been revolutionized. He believes publishing is next.
Matthew doesn't just talk, he thinks and works outside the box. He did a podcast of one his books. My sons giggled through every chapter (as they do with all his books). His latest novel is called Almost Super. He's using Kickstarter.com to raise enough money to publish the book without a traditional publisher. The cool thing is you can pledge your dollar or more but he won't run your credit card until he gets enough funds to publish the book. For $15 you will get a signed and numbered copy of the book. I can promise you this book is hilarious. I was in critique groups with Matthew when he wrote the book. A group of 30-50 year old women were cackling through critique group (that doesn't happen when the rest of us read!). Knowing Matthew as well as I do I can also promise that this is not a scam. He is an amazing writer and person.
I'm heading over to pledge now. If you'd like to join me click here.

  1. I read Chickens because you recommended it and you're right--it was so good! Too old for my boys, yet, but so right on with what it's like growing up in a large family. :)

    That's neat that you know him through a critique group! I'd love to hear how you find/join one, how it works, etc.

  2. Thanks for listening to my advice, Heidi! You'll have to read it to your boys when they're older. We're always quoting Chickens.
    I found my critique group after attending several League of Utah Writer's meetings. But we've been flakes about meeting lately!
