The Age of Conversation Dawns on Monday

Age of Conversation book


Back in April I signed on for a project that has turned out to be one of the most interesting I’ve been involved with lately. I contributed a 400-word chapter to a collaborative e-book to be called The Age of Conversation. The concept, dreamed up by Drew McClellan and Gavin Heaton, was simple but brilliant: to get 100 authors contributing to one conversation and to offer their collective writings as a downloadable file, with all proceeds from the sales donated to Variety, the Children’s Charity.

I’m happy to report now that not only with there be a downloadable e-book, but print versions of The Age of Conversation can be ordered as well.


Hardbacks $29.99
Paperbacks $16.95
E-book $9.99

My chapter is on conversational writing — how to gain and hold interest by writing with your reader in mind. Here’s a complete list of contributors with links to their blogs and Web sites. It’s a stellar lineup, and I’m honored to be in their company. Can’t wait to read what everyone else had to say about the subject.

Check back here Monday, and I’ll have the link for online ordering.

I’ll scrape together some money to buy a copy as soon as I finish The New Influencers. I’m having a tough time reading lately.

Good job, by the way.
