About

The Story Sleeping Dogs is being digitally published by Skyhorse in New York which is also publishing Writing With The Master, the book I wrote about crafting Sleeping Dogs with Grisham. Both are releasing in February and will be available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Walmart and Indie Bound. 

 In order to publish the physical book, Sleeping Dogs, we need to pay for the cover and formatting, printing, publicity and distribution, as well as to set up our website, Sleepingdogs.us. 

With your $25 contribution, you will help launch this novel and you will get your name printed in the acknowledgements section of the first edition limited printing.

Contribution Offers Include:

A 8 X 10 glossy of the actual book cover art signed by the author. This special art is designed by an internationally known artist and is a limited edition.

A 8 X 10 glossy of the #1 alternative book cover art signed by the author, Tony Vanderwarker. This special art is designed by an internationally known artist and is a limited edition.

A 8 X 10 glossy of the #2 alternative book cover art signed by the author, Tony Vanderwarker. This special art is designed by an internationally known artist and is a limited edition.

Participation in a 30 minute webinar chat with the author, Tony Vanderwarker, discussing his experience writing this novel with John Grisham's mentorship.

The Team

Tony Vanderwarker, I’m the author, a recovering ad man living in Central Virginia. I’ve written a bunch of novels, two more will be forthcoming in 2014-15. More of my story is at tonyvanderwarker.com

David Moody, publisher and social media guru, is a nuclear scientist bitten by the publishing bug. Since the advent of digital, David’s been charting new paths for the business. 

Sharon Bially, experienced in PR publishing, runs BooksavvyPR and is getting the word out about both Writing With The Master and Sleeping Dogs. 

Amy Collins, knows all facets of the publishing business and runs Newshelves, an independent book distributor and she’ll be selling Sleeping Dogs to bookstores, big box stores and libraries. 

The Opportunity

We’re trying to bridge traditional and digital publishing by publishing related books in each format. Hopefully people will be attracted by the two complementary titles and select either the physical books or the ebooks or mix and match. And by being first edition contributor, you’ll be able to say that not only did you help publish a bestseller but you helped raise awareness of the dangers nuclear weapons and waste pose to us.
