Book project: Help wanted

help wantedI’ve written a book, which is set to be launched in mid April. It’s a commentary on Ecclesiastes, “the strangest book in the Bible,” from the point of view of a follower of the Bhagavad-gita. The book will be published by the BBT.

And I could use some help. In fact, I could use a lot of help. Help with marketing and promotion, help with social media, and — right now — help with setting up two websites: one for the book, another for the author.

These will be WordPress sites, built on Genesis themes. For the engineering side I have a capable devotee who has volunteered his time and expertise and has the matter pretty well under control.

But I need help with the graphic design — coming up with a good, professional-quality design, and then working to implement it.

Ideally, we’d like to get this work wrapped up before the end of the month.

If you have expertise in such matters and would like to volunteer to help, please get in touch with me. (You can use click “Contact” on the main menu.)

Thank you. Hare Krishna.

PS: If you have other ways you might like to help, please feel free to contact me about that too.
