'Fans, Friends & Followers': Who's in it?

I've just received some early copies of my forthcoming book, Fans, Friends & Followers: Building an Audience and a Creative Career in the Digital Age, which will be available very soon in two forms: digital and ink-on-dead-trees.

So what better time to share with you the table of contents?

The heart of the book consists of thirty interviews I conducted over the past year or so with filmmakers, musicians, animators, writers, cartoonists, comedians, etc. I conducted a number of interviews that didn't end up in the finished book, and eventually I'll share some of those here.
