Earlier this year, New York Times bestselling author, Julien Smith, and I had an interesting moment.
It happened during a skype interview about swearing on blogs and in business. The whole conversation was fantastic and generated a lot of conversation and just a wee bit of controversy. But, what I didn’t know was this one moment would leave Julien spinning about something that would, over the course of the year, evolve into a book called The Flinch that’s being released today by Seth Godin’s The Domino Project.
So I circled back to Julien for round two.
In this new video interview, he shares what really happened in that pivotal moment earlier this year. We get into what led him on a quest that ended in him writing The Flinch, what it’s all about, why he did it with Seth Godin and The Domino Project and why it’s only on kindle and it’s being released at the price of…nothing.
But, as often happens when you get Julien and me talking, that conversation somehow led down the publishing industry rabbit hole, and we go off on a whole new tangent about the future of publishing for authors and publishers and how authors can leverage what’s nothing less than mass disruption for serious gain.
The Flinch is published today, it’s available only on kindle and it doesn’t cost a dime. You don’t actually need a kindle to read it, you just need the kindle app and you can read it pretty much anywhere with that. So, go download it now.
