Richmond, Virginia, was our most rewarding travel investment to date. Not only is it a city filled to the brim with arts and culture, but it’s also a featured setting in High Kill, the debut publication from Steemhouse Publishing and third novel by Diane Ryan.
We visited several bookstores, including The Fountain bookstore on East Carey Street where we also attended a very fortuitous Appalachian author event there with Valerie Nieman and Clifford Garstang. The Richmond Public Library was also a focus for us, as librarian Meg Raymond is currently working hard to build a platform for local authors.
A very different end product is starting to emerge than the one we envisioned early in the Steemhouse journey. While we still have an eye on specialized dapps with the writer in mind as well as a dedicated front end for high quality literature on the blockchain, we’ve also developed some solid ideas about how to reward and encourage reader involvement. We’ll have more information about that soon. Until then, stay current with our travel logs as we document the highlights of our trip. Click the image above to see our latest vlog!
