In my efforts to generate more passive income I have decided to write a book.  I'm already about 8 pages in and plan to make it about 200 pages long.  The book is titled, "The Evolution of Video Game Graphics".  Being a professional 3D artist, I get to see behind the curtain of real-time graphics development so I'm the perfect person to speak on it.  I'm designing the book to be very easy to read with tons of imagery.  It will go on sale both digitally and physically some time in February.  I don't yet know what it will cost.  I will be self-published and will be looking for a big publisher once its complete.

Please look forward to it :)

I will always be looking for ways to make more money.  I DO NOT WANT TO WORK THE REST OF MY LIFE!!!!  That's all I know.

WishTally is still priority #1 and will be for the next 5 years, but I have some extra time now because the work on WishTally is mostly up to the programmer to finish.

On the serious, what are you going to do regarding copyright?  Not sure if you can just publish something with various intellectual properties displayed in it like that.

Its a 'transformitive piece' and protected by fair use because its a educational/history book with mostly my own photos and images.

You mean "transformative?"  Hope you got an editor. 🙃

I'm on page 21 now.  180 to go.  I should be able to get a lot more done this weekend.  I'm really liking my book!  I think you guys will really like it too.

QUESTION FOR EVERYONE HERE...

With a title like "Evolution of Video Game Graphics" what would you expect to see in this book?
