Originally, Adam and I decided to combine our writing efforts, and spent over six months refining our ideas together and preparing a proposal for publication.
During this process we realized that we really enjoyed working together, yet our ideas and literary voices were quite distinct. After weeks of discussion, we’ve agreed to produce our own separate works, and help each other along the way.
Adam has helped me produce this site, find an agent, and secure a publisher. So will I help him create, promote, and sell a book based on his success in social media. Adam’s book (which has yet to be named) will benefit from the same rigorous design and production process that we’ve followed with 140 Characters.
Adam and I share the same agent (the fearless Erin Malone), and we share the same philosophy of simplicity, focus, and craftsmanship.
I’m really excited to promote Adam as he tells his story of heading West without a dime to his name. He found a job, a home, friendship, and support using a tool I helped to create. It is an inspiring story that will make a fine compliment to the principles and various styles within 140 Characters. He has been instrumental in the early success of this work, and I mean to see that he enjoys the same success.
Thank you, Adam.
