I’m writing a book about climate activism

I have some good news to report on the publishing front: Last week I signed a contract with Lexington Books, an imprint of Rowman & Littlefield, to write my first scholarly book. The book will be about the new climate change advocacy groups (e.g. 350.org) that have emerged over the last ten years. It will examine the role of innovation in the communication technology ecosystem and the lack of climate action at the federal level in the emergence of these groups. This is a research area in which I have a lot of professional and scholarly experience, having worked for a climate advocacy organization — the 1Sky campaign, which has since merged with 350.org — and published several articles on the subject.

The book will probably be published in mid-2019. I’m very excited about this new scholarly venture, and would appreciate advice from anyone who has written a scholarly book.
