Help Beth Ziesenis With Her New Book

Beth Ziesenis, author of Upgrade to Free, has a new book that she needs a bit of help publishing. Like her previous book, Release Your Inner Nerd, promises to offer information on many free and low-cost tech tools and applications. While Beth's last book was published through traditional publishing methods, her publisher has gone out of business and she needs you to help get the book going. Here's what the author had to say:

We all know there are a billion technology tools out there to help us, but where do we find them? I’m writing Release Your Inner Nerd as a follow up to my first book, “Upgrade to Free: The Best Free and Low-Cost Online Tools and Apps.”

The book will be full of free and bargain technology tools that we can use at work, home, school and life to keep ourselves organized, productive, connected and on the ball.

My publisher went out of business this summer (not my fault, I swear), so I am tackling the writing, design, copyediting and marketing projects on my own. That gives me the opportunity to involve you — my fabulous nerdy friends — in the next edition!

I’m modeling this pledge project after Kickstarter, a grassroots funding site that sadly rejected my proposal, saying my work fell outside their project scope. We can do the same thing right here!

I need to raise $4,000 to pay the designers and other folks who can help me bring the book to shelves, plus it’ll cover the costs of the writing retreat and cupcake supply I’ll need to finish the book.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you have about me or the book.

You can help by donating $15 to $200 and each donation will come with a different gift as thanks for your donation.
