Hope this finds you well. It’s been a while since we’ve chatted and I didn’t realize you worked for HMH, but I wanted to let you know that I’m finally working on a book! The decision to write a book is a big one, and it shouldn’t be made alone. That’s why…

I’d like to invite you to help me with my upcoming book project: Participation is Preparation! Together We Can Redesign the “End in Mind.”

I’m excited to be using, a new crowd-publishing platform that connects me directly with potential buyers and publishers. There are two advantages in this:

1) a chance to use pre-orders to connect me with readers interested in the book, and who may have a story to share;

2) a chance to write the book readers want, rather than one publishers will allow. If enough readers want it, a publisher will print it!

How can you help?

If we’re going to take this effort to scale, people need to know about it. I’ve attached a synopsis of the book, but please visit my proposal to learn more.

This link will hopefully go live on January 28th :

Since you are highly respected by a broad-based social media network, I’d like to ask that you

1. Share this with you network! Since you are highly respected by a broad-based social media network, I’d like to ask that you tweet or post something like the following at least once a day during launch week, January 28th to February 4th.

Rethink preparatory mindset! #edu and learners can participate in challenges facing our communities! by @Kubikhan

If you see something you really like in the synopsis or proposal, feel free to tweet or post around that.

2. Pre-order your exclusive first batch copy, which will go a long way in helping me attract a publisher. Pre-order rewards range from signed copies to virtual support or consulting visits! Those who participate after the first draft will be included and acknowledged in the final version!

Feel free to email ( or call (720-219-0268) with any questions! I sincerely believe that together, we can transform our “end in mind.”
