Over the Christmas holidays I’ve been talking with friends and family about the topic of my next book. I’ve got some ideas of my own, but one night someone suggested to me that I could ‘crowd-source’ ideas from people who read my blog. If ‘crowd-source’ seems a little hyperbolic, let’s say ‘group-source’.
What would people like to read about? What topics do they wish I would address in my next book? What areas do they feel I haven’t covered yet, or haven’t explored in enough depth? Do they long for me to write about something other than music? I try to imagine people going up to the ‘new titles’ table in a bookshop, picking up my book and saying, ‘Oh good! I see that Susan Tomes has written a book on …..[fill in missing words].’
So if you have suggestions, I’d be glad to hear them. You don’t have to post a public comment on this website. You can email me privately at email@example.com
In the meantime, Happy New Year!
