About Us


Who are we? Well, here’s our philosophy

We are risk takers, tech lovers, and bibliophiles (in no particular order). We publish short ebooks that focus on early or hot topics that haven’t already been published to death. We know that sometimes a technology is in a state of flux, but we believe that waiting for the right moment to write a book is old fashioned. We approach book writing in collaborative, fluid ways. Sometimes a technology catches on, sometimes it doesn’t. That’s the risk. But the journey is worth it.

Our Unique Process

We believe that collaboration fosters innovation. We often times bring together teams of authors from around the world to collaborate on books using a “booksprint.” What’s a booksprint? It consists of a number of authors working together and sharing ideas via Google Hangout for a weekend (or more). Through this process, we are able to publish books that are fluid and collaborative. We hope you enjoy the results.
