We're only a week away so we decided to give you a glimpse at the Age of Conversation cover. Cool, eh?
There's a little more copy on the real cover but this gives you the main idea.
Believe it or not, a few months ago Gavin & I hadn't even conceived the idea for the Age of Conversation. A glimmer of a blog post/comment, over 100 enthusiastic and smart writers and voila…the book began to take shape.
Originally, we were just going to produce an e-book but it soon became clear that there was a significant demand for paperback and hardback books as well. So…you will have your choice!
One key fact has not changed.
All proceeds from all book sales will be donated to Variety, the Children's Charity. We'll also be setting up a way for people to donate more than the of the book price, if they choose to. We'll be designating the funds to the native countries of our authors.
Read about the book's origin. Marvel at the author list. Learn about the book's dedication. Pull out your wallet and get ready to revel in some excellent writing.
Here are the particulars…
Launch date: Monday, July 16th
Watch this blog (and all the other authors' blogs) for more details and a link to the Age of Conversation store on Monday, July 16th!
We hope you love this book because we've decided we're going to do it all again (new topic) next year! If you missed out on authoring a chapter, be sure to let us know if you want in for the next edition.
Special thanks to David Armano for the cover design.
Drew, this is awesomely cool! Great job, David! The game is afoot – hurray!
LOVE the cover! That should sell a million copies alone! Good work Darmano! Good on you Drew & Gavin!
Looks fantastic! Great work all around.
Drew, I can’t wait to get mine. Maybe you could get a few hardback copies signed by all the bloggers and auction at the next big blogging event.
BTW, consider this my notice. I want in on the next edition!
Drew, Gavin, thank you once again. Can’t wait to read it! And David… wonderful cover!
Thanks again Drew – and Gavin – for putting this together.
Thanks for all your comments!
I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy. No pre-orders?
And the usual great job by Darmano!
I cant wait to read this!… wish i had come across this earlier.. i would have loved to contribute my 400 words towards it!:)
Great work Drew & Gavin! I’m so eagerly awaiting the 16th. I love the crescendo this is building up into. This must be one of the most exciting collaborative projects on the blogosphere. And boy I’m glad to be part of it!
Lookin’ great, guys! This is really a great project and I’m proud to be a part of it. Thanks for the tremendous effort you and Gavin are doing!
Forget the new Harry Potter launch. The AOC will crush it 🙂
Many thanks once again to Gavin and you for inspiring this and putting it all together.
Count me in on the next collaboration – this has been an exciting project to be involved with. Kudos to Armano for the cover and to you and Gavin for putting the whole thing together.
I plan to buy a hardcover copy as a keepsake, and a few paper copies to use as door prizes for events, etc. Can hardly wait until Monday!
Thanks for the atta boys. David Armano gets 150% of the credit for the cover. Gavin and I just wrote the words and let him do his magic.
The build up to the 16th is fast and furious now…thanks to everyone for their help, enthusiam and for helping spread the word.
