Executive Summary


War for Anarchists is a memoir about my (Roman Skaskiw's) third combat tour.  After already deploying to Afghanistan and Iraq as an infantry officer with the 82nd Airborne division, and after becoming a bitter skeptic about government in general and foreign policy in particular, I was recalled from the inactive reserve for a mission to Afghanistan's dangerous Kunar Province.

Rather than rely on pure philanthropy for this book, I am selling shares of the book.

I will pursue both self-publishing and more traditional publishing routes.  I will share all proceeded with shareholders, be they from sales of a self-published memoir or advances from a mainstream publisher.

Business Description


Mission: to publish a sell a memoir about my last tour in Afghanistan.

Vision: Rather than relying on pure philanthropy, I am raising funds by selling shares in this creative project.  This gives supporters a chance of earning a dividend and generates publicity, both for Bitcoin and for the book.

Definition of the Market


The book industry is very fickle, but some trends are clear.  Memoirs are generally more successful than novels.  War-related memoirs are a recognized niche.  Self-publishing is a quickly growing sector, but it remains a challenge for self-published authors to get noticed.  Self-published books risk getting lost in the mass of low-quality, poorly edited self-published books.  A good marketing strategy or unique approach is essential.

Products and Services

Pretty straight forward:  I'm writing, marketing and selling a memoir about my third military deployment.  I deployed to Afghanistan in 2008 as a civil affairs team leader, and a big skeptic about our military endeavors.  My lost faith made rolling the dice again very difficult.

Organization and Management

This venture is a sole proprietorship.

Marketing Strategy


I will simultaneously pursue two strategies:

1) Self-publishing:

- Website

- Hiring a publicist

- Mentioning the book at my speaking engagements (I have appeared on NPR, spoken at various universities, and this year I will give a lecture about Bitcoin at the Property and Freedom Society Conference.)

- Requesting book reviews

- leveraging my Youtube channel (Romansbookreport)

- advertising at Bitcoin conferences and on Bitcoin forums

2) Mainstream publisher.

This memoir occupies a niche which makes it instantly recognizable to mainstream publishers and literary agents.  I will solicit them as the memoir nears completion.  Even after the book is self-published, it is possible that it would get picked up my mainstream publisher, especially if sales have been strong.

Once a publisher invests in the book, their expansive marketing experience orchestrates substantial promotions in print, radio and elsewhere.

Financial Management


A self-publishing budget can be scaled from $500 to $20,000 (  I am ready to work with whatever I raise.

Income won't be generated before the Spring of 2014.  If a mainstream publisher picks up the book, there may be an advance of up to $40,000, followed by a year-long delay in the release of the book.  Self-publishing revenues vary widely.
