Introducing WILD COSMOS: Blockchain publishers of indy books & Graphic Novels || Seeking Creative Collaborators!

in #introduceyourself3 years ago (edited)


Hello fellow Steemians! Wild Cosmos is a new indy publishing project dedicated to bringing books and Graphic Novels to the blockchain using crowdfunds and ICOs.

Our Mission

We are authors and blockchain enthusiasts who believe that crypto + crowdfunding is the new leading edge of publishing. We believe that blockchain crowdfunding/ICOs, when used with gamified marketing and clever WIN/WIN dynamics to reward all involved, can allow for the creation of truly original, truly great content.

This content, to be published on blockchains, is also resistant to censorship and editorial pressures. This is an important point. 

If you are aware of the infowar for our minds (and if not, where have you been?), then you must also be aware of how the infowar extends into ALL fields of media. Much as online videos are now being thoroughly censored (for instance, all the recent YouTube and FB takedowns) and driving users to decentralised platforms like Dtube instead (yes, long live Dtube!), we see, right now, a similar trend of censorship happening in traditional publishing, and a similar need to create an alternative, open space for the creation/publishing of books and Graphic Novels. 

Our Hope  

We hope to support Steem writers and also Steem writing contests - both with collaboration and sponsorship - while promoting our creative projects here and anywhere else that we can think of. Again, we truly believe in WIN/WIN dynamics for everyone involved. Our thinking is more DAO-like than pyramidal. 

So if you're a (serious) writer, artist, editor, designer, marketer, tech ninja, blogger, whatever, and think we can help each other in any way, please do drop us an email: [email protected]

What We Need

Right now we're especially interested in sponsoring a writing contest to promote our first project, The High Wild: First Fire.

Here's a video trailer of the project:

Our First Project

Our first book, The High Wild: First Fire, is a science fiction passion project from best-selling author and avid crypto fan Col Buchanan. Col's Farlander fantasy novels are published by Tor and others internationally (https://colbuchanan.com) / @wildmanhowling.

The High Wild: First Fire will be launched as a crowdfunded book in digital and print formats in the forthcoming months.

If the crowdfund is successful, the ultimate hope is to use the novel as a springboard for a crowdfunded Science Fiction Space series following the troubled crew of a troubled spaceship, rendered AS GRAPHIC NOVELS.

So if you like SF, Cyberpunk, Space Adventure and want to read some hot new science fiction then support the crowdfunding of the project!

Sounds great. Our chief editor Erica worked for Science Fiction World Magazine before. And our advisor Emily is one of the tranlators of Star War and The Chronicles of Narnia. We will translate the introduction and more details into Chinese and post them on our Chinese blockchain website then. Hope it helps.

That would be great @dappchaser. We are keen on borderless publishing and any extra exposure is very much appreciated. What is it that you guys do with @dappchaser (I don't speak Chinese)?

If we can help you out in any way let us know, and likewise if you have any ideas for collaboration. Translations of works into Chinese comes to mind!

Hi, DAppChaser is a distributed organization focusing on blockchain innovation and DApp development. dappchaser.com is one of our website. It is a new blockchain media based on community.
Because of the censorship, publishing works in China is very difficult. Maybe http://g.yeeyan.org is a better choice. If you have excellent novels, we could send the recommend information in Chinese to them.

Thanks for the information and good fortune with your project. Will definitely keep it in mind for the near future.

Where do I find the details of this contest? I'm a writer and scifi might be nice for variety after what I've been writing recently. I am new and want to get involved in the writing community here.

Keep following @wildcosmos posts for news on contests. Welcome @honeybadger, and hope you enjoy your time here.
