With a little help from my friends (love those Beatles), the “sneak peek” book launch of The Corporate Blogging Book in Washington DC will be a roaring success.

Thanks to Pat Cleary (one of the corporate blogging stars in the book) for his blog write-up that appears today at the top of Google News. And thanks also to my friends in the D.C. office of Fleishman-Hillard who are co-hosting the event with me.

I received the first hardback copy of the book in the mail yesterday from my publisher, Penguin Portfolio. Hey, a *real* book. I’m still speechless. I gotta say it looks great!

Come win a *signed* advance copy of The Corporate Blogging Book!

You won’t find the book anywhere else on July 25th because the official publication date is the following week (August 3rd). Come meet Pat and several other blogging stars from the book including Kevin Holland and Cheryl Contee (and maybe some other local blogging celebrities – TBA). We’ll also have on hand “sneak peek” copies of the book for purchase.

Hope to see you there! Details and RSVP info below.
