Hey hey! My outdoors survival book, to be published next spring by Adventure Publications, is now available for pre-order! https://amzn.to/2INDOoI

BenSobieck

@KimberleySBLieb Oh, yeah. You betcha. I used to be an editor for a preparedness/survival magazine that did very well. Print distribution from coast to coast, an annual event in Atlanta, TV tie-ins, the whole works. For this book, I basically took the best of what I learned from that experience and simplified it so that people in stressful outdoors situations can help themselves.

Check out my new short-short story, "The Eighth Continent!"
          
          https://www.wattpad.com/story/164027520-the-eighth-continent-planetorplastic
          
          This was a commissioned piece from National Geographic for its #planetorplastic campaign. Plastic waste is choking out marine life, but not everyone knows how severe this issue has become. There are plastic patches in the ocean that, taken together, would rival Texas in size! 
          
          Read my story, then write your own to get the word out as part of the #planetorplastic contest. Details are here:

Have you heard about Wattpad Next? It's the coin-based program Wattpad is currently running in beta to explore new ways of compensating writers. There's a great summary of it in Publishing Perspectives here:

@JenniferFarwell I do, too, and Wattpad is the right place to make this work at scale. There will certainly be comparisons to Radish, but that company pigeonholed itself into one genre.
