The first Consafo project was Turtles all the Way Down. It is a follow-up to my first book, RealLivePreacher.com. The title was determined in a series of email and comment discussions with those on the publication team. There were many good ideas, but in the end we went with Turtles all the Way Down, which is the title of one essay in the book. The content of the book was determined by those who bought advanced copies. 15 members of the publication team edited the content.
The first Consafo project was a complete success. We sold more than enough copies to fund the printing of 2000 copies. After shipping the approximately 400 books to those who purchased them, we were left with 1600 copies of the book, which I own. I’ll sell them on my website over the next few years. With a little publicity and good fortune, perhaps I’ll sell them all in a few years. I’m in no hurry.
