No Safe Harbor Shortlisted for Book award

I realise it's been a while since there's been an update here. A combination of personal issues, new jobs, and increased activism on our topics, has meant that myself and Bradley have been unable to work on this project as much as we'd like to.

In fact, hardly at all.

There is a reason for that - we do this book for love; love of freedom, love of sharing, and love of education. As a result, we made a decision to not make a penny on this book (or any successors). We are more than happy to give away the ebook for free. The dead-tree version does cost, but any money above costs doesn't go to us, it goes to the Pirate Party. So, to keep a roof over our heads, and food on our tables, we have to prioritize our everyday jobs.

However, we have an amazing announcement to make now, in that No Safe Harbor has been listed for the LA Times Book Prize in the Current Interest category.


This is the first we've been able to tell you about it, because we've been under embargo until today, but we got the letter from Guy Montag about a week ago.

With this new surge of enthusiasm and a new wave of readers that are sure to pick up the book, we should get No Safe Harbor 2 on track soon!

Have more details in a bit.

UPDATE (April 2): Or not at all, as it wasn't true. April Fools!
