Reality checkers needed for snitch book

With a little help from my friends I’m just about done drafting the snitch book. Booklet, actually; looks like we’re succeeding in keeping it short. (It’s a miracle!)

By the end of this week or early next, it’ll be ready to run past four or five reality checkers. (Hobbit and jw, I’ll be asking you soon; after the contributions you’ve already made, I ASS-U-ME you’ll say yes.)

Right now we aren’t ready for proofreaders or copy-editors. That will come a little later. What we could really use at this stage are people with the voice of experience. We’ve got a lawyer/judge and an interrogation maven on the case already. Could definitely use others such as ex-cops, cops who are members of LEAP, victims of snitches, reformed snitches, ex-prison guards, ex-prisoners, or ex-prosecutors.

If you have such experience and would be willing and able to review a document (under 50 pages) in the next few weeks, email me (snitchbook at hermit dot cotse dot net) or drop a comment & I’ll get back to you.

    Perhaps you remember me from TMM, we met once and I would be happy to look over your pamphlet and offer my advice

    Thank you very much, David. I appreciate your offer.

    The first draft has now gone out to the first-round reality checkers (all people with some sort of law enforcement/justice system experience or experience with snitches). Should be a second round later this month focusing more on readability and proofreading, and I believe I already have a solid crew lined up for that. People are good. 🙂

    I may not need to take you up on your offer, but I’ll remember that you’re there and willing to be a backup.

    I’ll be standing in line behind David … just in case.

    Do I have to prove I can read to be a proofreader?
    There’s always a catch isn’t there?
