In 43 days, New Day Revolution will hit the shelves. As such, the next month and a half will be a whirlwind of events and happenings to promote the release of your manual for changing the world.
And next weekend, we'll be in Atlanta for a little pre-release promotion at the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance Annual Conference. We can't wait to meet some independent booksellers.
On Friday, we'll be leading an interactive session at 4:10 entitled, "New Day Revolution: How Booksellers Can Save the World and Their Stores." During that time, we'll be examining how booksellers can 'green' their stores, and how anyone with a business has an audience - therefore they can leverage their audience in lots of ways to make the world a better place. That's what we've been doing for the last year at CoolPeopleCare, and we're delighted that we get to share that with others. We'll also have some sweet CoolPeopleCare car decals for those in attendance so they can spread the message far and wide wherever their car may take them.
Then, on Saturday, we'll be smiling and signing books at the Xyzzy Press booth. Autographs are free and hugs are optional. If you stop by, be sure to enter for a drawing for a great starter kit on how to make a difference in your own life.
The cool thing about all of this is that we continue to get a platform to tell our story. All of us have stories that need telling, and we should take any chance we have to share with someone else the ideas, passions and values that are within each of us. We've just been lucky in that we find ways (or rather, ways find us) to tell our story of change and community involvement to more and more people. And, we're glad when anyone listens.
We believe in the power of the local, which is why we're excited to be a part of SIBA. Local businesses have been very strong threads in the patchwork of local communities throughout history, and even in a day of chain stores and big budgets, we never underestimate the power of one person, one store, or one business to make a positive difference and a lasting impact.
So, SIBA, here we come. We're two newly minted authors with big ideas, a lot of energy, and a desire to have fun while saving the world.
P.S. – If you read this and find one of us at the show and are the first person to tell us the secret password (REMARKABLE), we'll promote the heck out of your store (for free) on our site.
