Measuring up at 144 pages, Otaku Journalism costs $5.99 and can be read on any device that can run a Kindle App—iOS, Android, or Windows. If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can even borrow it for free!
As promised, Otaku Journalism is a vast improvement over my digital guides. It contains two new chapters, fictional stories about otaku journalists illustrating the lessons of each section, and deeply personal accounts of how I manage my own career. Not to mention Lisa Granshaw‘s geeky editing magic, and Kevin Bolk‘s cosplay-worthy cover.
As far as I know, Otaku Journalism is the ONLY journalism textbooks for aspiring fan reporters. Unlike my own college journalism textbook, it doesn’t just reluctantly add a section about “computer assisted reporting.” It assumes, like every modern journalist ought to, that this is the age of digital journalism, and our reporting methods and our pop culture story topics should both reflect that.
This book has been in the making for years, and I’m so excited to finally be making good on my promise. Pick up a copy, and let me know what you think of it in the form of an Amazon book review!"
Please pick up a copy and support an exceptional, hardworking lady and a good friend of mine.
