The Book is Done - Here's What Happens Next
Hey there Untold LA supporters, the iPad Book is done! It's been uploaded to Apple for processing and the initial version should be live on the iTunes Store within a couple of weeks. Once it's live I'll immediately update it with a version that contains a link within the book itself to the iTunes Store listing; the idea being that people will be able to click a link in the book that takes them to the Untold LA listing, allowing them to directly rate, review or recommend the book; this is vital to help spread the word about the project.
Once this version is live on the store I'll send out a link to the book to all the folks who've signed up on the mailing list wanting to be informed when it's published as well as sending a link to all the eligible Kickstarter supporters to get their free version of the book.
The next step, which should take place in April, is to print out a small coffee table paper book version of selected photos for the four Kickstarter supporters who wanted that as a reward.
Additionally, starting in April, I'll 'break the book apart' and publish a page a day from it during the week on this blog so that the material will be free for everyone and not locked away just for folks who have an iPad or Mac computer.
Thanks as always to everyone for their support and patience. I think the finished project is beautiful; over 360 pages, 500 photos, 70 oral history audio clips from West Adams residents and two hours of behind-the-scenes-video commentary - whew!
