Nerdfighter Collab Book

As a community lets collaborate and make a book. So many nerdfighters are brilliant authors and this would be a great way to both give them a helping hand, some recognition and maybe even raise a little money for charity.

Making a book

*Submissions are now closed but we always need more editors*
We need you to help create and publish a book by nerdfighters. If you are wondering what you can do to help we have a heap of discussions below for you to get involved in. If you want to submit something email it to nerdcollabbook@hotmail.com you will remain with full creative control over anything you submit except that you give us permission to publish it, if we want to do anything else with anything submitted, and this is very important, we will contact you to get your consent first.

Also there is a discussion about this group going on at:
http://nerdfighters.ning.com/forum/topics/nerdfighteria-makes-a-book

Leadership positions:
Head of writers - TheRachel - it is your job to make sure all those aspiring authors know about this
Head of art - Natalie Ochalek - it is your job to make sure there are artists lined up for any artwork we might need
Head of publicity - Eric Farragher - you need to make sure people know about us
Head of logistics - Sarah Lynn - you need to find out what we need to actually do to get a book published, which publishing companies do we contact, which authors?
Head of editors - Tristan Morris-Patrick Lewis - you need to get a team together to sit down with the authors and edit their stuff
Head of awesome - Emily Nerdsome - it is your job to keep everyone excited and fuelled with cookies

Also as a lot of you have been thanking me for coming up with this I want to say the idea was actually thought up by Anna Marie North, so hopefully some of you will drop by her page and thank her because she is pretty awesome.

@Ashley: Well, I sent in what I had so far...I'm kind of tired from staying up late last night so I'm not going to try to finish it today but if you want I can put some serious work in tomorrow...I'm a really fast writer (whether or not what I crank out is good is another question).
Comment by Ashley Mullinax on February 16, 2011 at 4:37pm

@Sora, I think we can make an exception. *wink* Just get in what you can.

@Evealle, Um, I personally haven't been, but, apparently, Alex has.. But she's been very busy, so I don't know. If not, I can check the hotmail account and make sure yours is there, if you'd like.

Comment by Evealle on February 16, 2011 at 9:53am
Are we supposed to hear whether you got our submissions within 3 days? (I believe that's what I read in one of the threads, but I just wanted to double check)
Comment by Sora on February 15, 2011 at 8:59pm

*headdesk* Blame it on myself for procrastinating and having other things to do, but my submissions like seriously suck...one of them isn't even finished but I'm hoping I can send at least part of it in and if you are interested and willing to accept it I can definitely write more. The other is finished but I don't know what you'll think of it.

 

Sending them in anyway but feeling kinda made of fail.

Comment by Ashley Mullinax on February 15, 2011 at 3:53pm

@Sora, Okay, I wasn't sure about your question, so I tried to get ahold of Alex (who started this project) and she hasn't answered yet. So, I'm going to say that that'll be fine, just submit it before then and we'll accept it. Also, by the way everybody, I've been pegged as the Head of the group page here (I never really announced that, did I?), so if anyone has any questions or comments or anything, just let me know and I'll try to answer, and if I don't know the answer, I'll try to ask one of the other Heads and I'll get back to you.

Just to confirm is the deadline midnight on the 15th? I'll probably be coming home from school to write...I would be writing tonight but I had a really sucky day...
Comment by Evealle on February 14, 2011 at 2:18pm
I'm about to send something in! I hope it's not too late!
Comment by Ashley Mullinax on February 11, 2011 at 2:07pm
@Olivia, The deadline for submissions is February 15. So, even if you can just get a little piece done and submitted before then, that'd be great.
Comment by Olivia Sipe on February 10, 2011 at 7:28pm

Ugghhh, why couldn't I have discovered this sooner! Getting to work uh NOW. Hopefully I still have a chance.

Comment by Jo Siri on February 4, 2011 at 5:50am
