Yesterday I’d mentioned the concept of a new E-Pub, and maybe even print publication depending on interest from folks following along here. To be really honest, it’s not a concept, it is something that is coming soon.
In fact, February 1st I should have the final first E-Pub ready to roll. The whole idea of the publication is to cover things in a deeper fashion than I do with the blog. Bottom line, the blog is total stream of consciousness. Normally I sit down, fire away at the keyboard, and then see what I get out of the whole thing. Some posts make it, some just get deleted when I re-read them.
The idea of “Living in Tin” is to have a place where I can put together the full story, not just the rapid fire story that gets written here. And for the first issue we’ve got a couple of fun articles. The whole story of crossing back across the U.S. More on the return to Prescott. The upcoming Borrego trip will be included as well. And finally, a nuts and bolts discussion of working from the road. There I think I have some expertise as I’ve been working out of my Airstream since 2006.
The cover you see on this post is a mock up. I’m not done with it yet. And I’m not the only person working on the publication. If there’s interest when it’s available then this will be a quarterly thing. And now you’re asking, “Well, why didn’t you publish this already starting in January?” Bright question, simple answer. I hit the road November 1st, 2013. Each issue will contain 3 months, so for the first issue we’ll have November, December, & January. See, it makes sense.
And for those of you who have been wondering where are all the pictures lately? I think you have your answer now. They’ll be in LIT (Living in Tin). Yes, some will hit the blog, but I’m saving a lot of images for this venture!
