Write for Hello Web Books

Got a book in you?

I started writing Hello Web Books because I wanted smaller, friendlier books for tech folks. No giant behemoth tomes — something small, fun, and easy to pick up.

I've learned so much after self-publishing three books. Book design, book production, eBook conversion, how to get on Amazon, how to set up a fulfillment warehouse, sales, marketing, you name it. And I've been thinking it's a shame that I can't help others with this knowledge.

Thinking of writing a book? Let's see about working together!

Right now the audience for Hello Web Books is mainly programmers and tech-y folk. I'm investigating publishing other books under the Hello Web Books brand which fit these guidelines:

  • Small: Ideally under 200 pages. In terms of word count, this means ~17,000 words (for a code-heavy book) to 30,000 words (more word-heavy.)
  • Friendly: My books are intentially a little bit dorky. I find that having a bit of fun with the writing means the books are more fun to read.
  • Beginner/intermediate preferred: I've gotten well known for beginner/introductory topics, so I lean towards those (especially when starting out publishing other books.) But this is flexible depending on topic.

Regarding money (since that's the most important part, right?)

Ideally we'd run a Kickstarter campaign for the book to determine viability and to get pre-orders/initial marketing for the book (don't worry, I will coordinate everything for the campaign for you!) From there, you'll get your advance and we'll coordinate a much, much, much higher percentage than traditional publishers for royalties.

I have to coordinate and cover production costs, but my goal is for the majority of profits from your book to go straight to you.
