Michael Hyatt, president and CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers, the world leader in Christian publishing s writing a book called "The Thomas Nelson Way." He has announced that he will write it chiefly in a blog and that Scoble and I inspired him to do this through the Naked Conversations experience.
This reiterates what Robert and I already knew. Michael Hyatt is a real gentleman. He personally got involved in Thomas Nelson's bidding to become our publisher. He almost did. Nelson and Wiley competed for rights to our book and in the end Wiley made the higher bid in terms of an advance.
I'll be watching his project closely, even as I continue along with my second book being written his way. If you are an author, understanding publishers is really vital. You may start with a dream and a need to tell your story. But, this authoring stuff is indeed a business, and what Michael is doing is generous and valuable to anyone even contemplating authoring a book.
