Looks like somebody’s been reading this blog? Last month I wrote about “Choose Your Own Shakespeare” novelizations, and on November 21 we got To Be Or Not To Be : The Adventure which is exactly that.
I don’t know how I feel when I see a project like this net $150k on Kickstarter. Really? It drives me a little nuts. I’ve spoken to publishers about doing Shakespeare work and basically been told “Until you have 50k readers or a piece in the NY Times, your book isn’t going to sell.” Somehow this project pulls in 4k backers and makes it happen?
Just jealous, I guess. 🙂 I do like and support the fact that he’s publishing through the non-profit service Breadpig, and donating all the proceeds to cancer research. I have to back that. Good man.
