Josh, what are you doing?
I’m releasing a small book of tweets on August 6th called PLS ADVISE: TWEETS FROM @JOSHSPILKERPLUS.
This seems kinda out of nowhere.
It is. And I’m building and designing the whole thing in 10 days. I started in late July and the book will be released on 8/6/15.
Only 10 days?
I found this thing called the Small Product Lab from Gumroad. It’s a challenge to create a small product in only 10 days. I’m doing it with a community of people and it sounded fun. That’s why.
What’s the book about?
It has some tweets from my ‘other’ Twitter account, @joshspilkerplus. That’s where I post a bunch of random thoughts and creative writing type stuff. I went through all of my tweets from this year, picked out what I thought were some pretty good ones and stuck them in a book.
So your book will be 1 page of your boring tweets?
No…I think it’s about 20! I’m adding some art that I found at the Noun Project, which has icons and different things for re-use. So it’s not boring, it’s transformational or something. And it will only cost $1.
Oh, so it’s 20 pages of amazing tweets and art for $1!!!
That’s more like it.
Have you done something like this before?
Put out a small book? Yes. There’s Kmart and Woodbine and About Mr. Warren and this really random one called Firehouse Neckbrace that was supposed to be an elaborate PowerPoint presentation. But PLS ADVISE wasn’t planned until I saw the Small Product Lab thing.
Does this thing have any thing to do with your book of tweets?
I mean, not really. I’ve been talking about status update literature for awhile. But yes, I did just read Tao and Mira’s book and saw the Small Product Lab and thought a book of tweets would be something I could do in 10 days, since I had already written the tweets. I don’t have near as many tweets as that book though. PLS ADVISe is my small entry into the fray.
Well, what about Taco Jehovah?
What about it?
I’m asking you. Is it still happening?
Of course, why?
Wasn’t that supposed to come out this summer?
Great. That’s what I like to hear.
Can you remind when PLS ADVISE comes out and mebbe give me a free look at Taco Jehovah?
Yeah, sure, no problem! What’s your email address? Or just pre-order it here.
