Wonderful things happen when you publish a book.
I have been sitting behind my computer for the last few days, marveling at the support, creativity and enthusiasm of my blog readers. News has traveled from unexpected places, and the reception of the book has been amazing.
I updated my original “The book is here” post of April 30 with new videos and interviews. Check them out! I hope you enjoy the variety and action.
I have about twelve new, meaty, juicy posts for this blog in my head that are just dying to come out, but in the next two weeks, book promotion is all-consuming. So here are some of the things that have been popping so you can chomp on some new content via interviews about the book.
I know many of you are working on your own books, so I look forward to your updates!
Those of you who have read my blog for awhile will remember my first connection with Guy Kawasaki in May, 2006, when he linked to my post Open Letter to CXOs Across the Corporate World. This simple gesture was hugely significant to the growth of my blog, and led me to fondly call Guy my “link sugar daddy.”
Guy has been a really strong supporter of my blog, and advocate for my book. He was kind enough to write the foreword, which was really significant to me since I loved his book The Art of the Start so much.
Guy asked me twelve questions about the book here How to Escape Mundanity.
Thanks Guy! I owe you about 100,000 blog readers.
Dan Schawbel, the young personal branding expert who I talked about a couple of weeks ago when he launched his book Me 2.0 did an interview with me on his blog which is here. He also invited me to contribute to his latest issue of Personal Branding Magazine, which is outlined here. Thanks Dan!
Chris Guillebeau, the 279 Days Manifesto phenomenon whom I love so much I want to adopt, let me know that there was a FedEx conspiracy in his hometown, and he surmises that his driver must have wanted to Escape FedEx Nation, but then recanted. See his video review here:

Bob Walsh, owner of 47 Hats, my Micro-Independent Software Vendor expert extraordinaire, author and my good friend of many years gives his take on the book as it applies to software developers who want to start their own companies. Read his review here.
Abhijeet Khadilkar of Career Tiger did a video review of the book as it relates to job seekers. I am really excited that I will be keynoting at a Career Tiger event in San Jose on June 13th (details here), along with my friends Ramit Sethi and Jason Alba. Read Abhijeet’s review here.
There is so much good will and good vibes floating around this book that I am just surfing the wave. Thanks for following along with me, and for your trust and confidence.
I look forward to watching your own magical mystery tour when your dreams come true, and writing about them here on the blog.
