sales data

Before I finished writing The Ethics of Anarcho-Capitalism, I wondered how many copies I should expect to sell. I didn’t find much data to help me level-set, so I thought it might be useful to others if I published my own data. The upshot is that I sold about 1,000 copies in the first year,Continue reading “sales data”

working with Michael Malice

In an earlier post I mentioned a number of people who helped create the Ethics of Anarcho-Capitalism. Conspicuously absent was Michael Malice, who mentored me through the writing and publishing process. He is getting his own post because I thought people would enjoy a little more detail about what it was like working with him.Continue reading “working with Michael Malice”

writing timeline for The Ethics of Anarcho-Capitalism

As a software engineer, I use a program called git to track the changes I make to source code files. So, when I started writing The Ethics of Anarcho-Capitalism, it seemed natural to use git to track changes to the book as I went along. I am glad that I did, because now I canContinue reading “writing timeline for The Ethics of Anarcho-Capitalism”

I am excited to announce that The Ethics of Anarcho-Capitalism is now available as an audio book on Audible. I had considered narrating the audio book myself. I even recorded the first few chapters. After listening to my recordings, though, I decided to find a professional. I’m glad that I did. Madeleine Brolly produced theContinue reading “The Ethics of Anarcho-Capitalism audio book”

book layout with Scribus

I used the free, open-source layout program Scribus to design the interior of The Ethics of Anarcho-Capitalism. It took several hours to learn but, after that, it was a pleasure to use. There are already good tutorials available for how to do book layout with Scribus, but I thought it would be helpful to describeContinue reading “book layout with Scribus”

Word Cloud book visualization

I thought it would be fun to visualize The Ethics of Anarcho-Capitalism as a word cloud, so I wrote a little script to produce one. Here is the result: I was a little disappointed that the words freedom, liberty, and capital were not more prominent, but it’s my own fault for using other words moreContinue reading “Word Cloud book visualization”
