Shanghaied is a book, but we’re writing it in blog form and posting it chapter by chapter as we go. Unlike an ordinary blog, our posts are ordered oldest first instead of newest first. Shanghaied is a story, and like any good story, the best place to start is at the beginning.
We decided to write in the form of a blog so that we could find a readership and get some feedback before seeking a publishing deal. That being said, we don’t post chapters to the blog until we feel they are done, or very nearly done. We are also hoping to connect with readers personally, so if you’d like to give us some free editorial feedback along the way, just leave a comment at the bottom of any post, or contact us directly. We read every comment and if you have a good suggestion, there’s a good chance you’ll see it in action.
We’re also doing this to build up a base of readers, so if you like Shanghaied, please share it with your friends on Facebook. (If you’re older than we are, you can instead just email the link to everyone you know.)
We’ve outlined about 45 chapters for Shanghaied, and we’ll be posting a new chapter at least once a month. To make sure you get each new chapter hot off the presses, please join the Shanghaied mailing list by entering your email in the box in the column to the right.
