Entrepreneur Spotlight: Patrick Caneday: Damn Good Writer

Posted by Expert Gadget Reviewer on Thursday, 18 November 2010

 Patrick Caneday, also known as surrogate parent to my daughter Grace when her mom is busy building in the garage, is my very talented writer neighbor-friend.  He has a column in Burbank Leader as well as the Glendale Press  called SMALL WONDERS.  He's too modest to tell you that his writing is really, really good.  In fact, so good that Al Martinez, a Pulitzer Prize winning Los Angeles Times newspaper columnist said this about Patrick's book:

"I love Patrick Caneday's work. He seeks out the humanity in us and writes about it in the kind of seamless prose that any author would envy, in a style that only a few can achieve. I have always looked forward to reading his columns and now I have them at hand to consider them in pleasure. Thanks, Patrick, for the immensity of the gift you have given us and continue to give."

Patrick is raising money to self-publish his book Crooked Little Birdhouse: Random Thoughts on Being Human and is doing it in such a cool way.  Through Kickstarter, he's trying to raise $2,500 in 30 days and if that $2,500 isn't raised in 30 days, he gets nothing.  It's literally all or nothing.  He put together a fantastic video explaining what he's trying to do as well as what you, the very gracious donation giver, gets when you make a pledge.  Please take a moment to get to know Patrick and his writing....
