I had a great time last night at the blog dinner honoring the illustrative Hugh MacLeod, except people kept asking me how the new book is coming and the short answer is that for right now it isn't.
I want very much to immerse myself. I love the concept and I love nothing more than writing particularly, books. I think the concept of Global Neighborhoods and of what the world looks like when our kids replace us in the marketplace are interesting and important to a great many people. I have amassed great stories from people all over the Western world.
But I need to face up to bread and butter issues. Being an author is not as lucrative as many people might think. Nor are the speaking engagements. In fact, on the fame-and-fortune continuum, I have been way over on the fame side and need to move closer to the fortune side, at least to the mortgage-covering side.
I don't think I'll have much trouble increasing my consulting practice, but just so you know, I have immediate openings for new clients. To learn more, email me here.
