Writing a book about tape and disk loaders for the C64

I decided to create a single place where I can pour my knowledge on tape and disk loaders for the Commodore 64 and make it easily accessible for software preservation efforts.

I don’t expect to make money out of it, but if I were able to get a bit of recognition for the time I spend researching and reverse engineering disk loaders in the coming weeks and months, then I might set aside some more of my private time to do so.

I like the model used by Leanpub: I can publish a book before it is finished and those who buy it have access to all future edits and unfinished chapters once I release them. The other good thing is that I retain publishing rights of my books published through them, which means I have the freedom to share bites of information, albeit without too many technical details beyond the interest of my average reader, here on my blog too.

Fear not! This is not a means to hide information away. It’s actually what I’d define a motivation booster to get that information written down here on my blog AND also hold it all together in a single place, i.e. the book itself.

Here’s a preview of what the book might end up looking like:

And here’s the link that you can use to let me know you’d be interested in this sort of initiative.
