Eight Lunches, Second Draft, Instructions

I just finished the second draft of Eight Lunches.  Whew.

If you want to review it, leave a comment here and I’ll email it to you.

Here are the instructions for the review:

  1. I’m sending a word document in case you are dying to leave anything specific in the document (with Track Changes).  I do not want too much of this, though, because last time I was overwhelmed to the point of paralysis and didn’t know how to digest it.  So, do it if you must, otherwise, see #3.
  2. I’m sending it to my editor after I compile the feedback… so don’t worry about grammar, spelling, flow, etc.
  3. I’d love one or two paragraphs, or some bullet points, of your feedback. I’m specifically looking for feedback that will help me make this tighter, better, stronger.  Feel free to be critical and negative… so I can find out what bugs people about what I’ve done.
  4. IF YOU WANT TO ENDORSE THE BOOK I CAN PUT YOUR ENDORSEMENT IN THE BOOK… with a link to your company, etc.

I think that’s it… pretty simple… again, if you want to see it, please leave a comment on this other post.

I’d like to get this to the editor in the next 30 days… so I’d appreciate any thoughts in the next week or two. If you are a deadline person, consider July 31 your deadline :)

    Hi, Jason.

    Consider me a fan. While you have a 7/31 deadline, sometimes they get renegotiated. As a former business owner x3, and someone who takes the entrepreneurial energy and spirit to work every day, I’d be privileged to read your new addition.

    Thanks so much and my best to you and your family,
    Angela Katsakis

    Jason,

    I had mentioned in your original post that I would be glad to be part of the review process. I’d still love to, if the offer stands. :)

    I will be happy to help. I just started on working on whitepaper that will eventually be an e-book.
