I’m in Virginia tonight after spending two days in Chicago at the first annual 800ceoread Author Pow Wow. The 8cr folks are, in my opinion, the world’s greatest business booksellers, largely because they have a passion for business books and, as they demonstrated over the last couple of days, the people who write them.
Jack Covert, Todd Sattersten, and the gang invited 21 authors to gather together with a few publishers, agents and PR folks to talk about the biz of biz books. There were a lot of fine discussions, insights, ideas–all that good stuff that you hope to get from a conference.
If you’ve read blog posts about other conferences and workshops, you’ll know that this is the point where I’m supposed to give you outlines of each of the presentations, and comment, perhaps, on what the speakers were wearing.
Sorry. I’m not gonna do that.
But I’ll do you one better. Here’s a list of those who attended as participants. No disrespect to the presenters–they were awesome–but I think you’ll have a lot of fun and get a ton of value by clicking the links of the authors below. I’m proud to now count them among my friends. Not only are they fine human beings, they’re very, very smart.
