The Dream Team — Age of Conversation ’08 authors

Conversation_cover When Gavin and I announced that we were going to create a 2nd Age of Conversation book and were looking for authors — we had plenty of takers.  275 to be exact.  Now, several months later, the submissions are in and we’re knee deep in editing.

It’s funny how life can interfere with our plans.  We had several authors who had to take a pass due to family, work or other obligations/situations.  When the dust settled and all the chapters were turned in, we had 237 authors left standing.  Here they are:

Adrian Ho, Aki Spicer, Alex Henault, Amy Jussel, Andrew Odom, Andy Nulman, Andy Sernovitz, Andy Whitlock, Angela Maiers, Ann Handley, Anna Farmery, Armando Alves, Arun Rajagopal, Asi Sharabi, Becky Carroll, Becky McCray, Bernie Scheffler, Bill Gammell, Bob LeDrew, Brad Shorr, Brandon Murphy, Branislav Peric, Brent Dixon, Brett Macfarlane, Brian Reich, C.C. Chapman, Cam Beck, Casper Willer, Cathleen Rittereiser, Cathryn Hrudicka, Cedric Giorgi, Charles Sipe, Chris Kieff, Chris Cree, Chris Wilson, Christina Kerley (CK), C.B.

Quite an impressive list.  And you’re going to love the insights and stories they had to share.

For the next month or so, we’ll be editing and working through design/layout issues.  And before you know it, Age of Conversation ’08 will be ready for promotion and purchase.

Thanks to everyone who is participating and remember….it’s all about raising money for charity.

Stay tuned!

    Drew / Gavin, Thanks again for all the great work. I’m honored to collaborate with you. Even though AOC ’08 will have a little less writers in it, the list stills looks really impressive! I’m really looking forward to reading what everybody had to say this year! Oh and…by the way,the link to my blog is ok.
    Un abrazo


  5. Drew, thanks so very much for putting in once again so much work on this project. I can’t wait to read all of the chapters and am in awe over the scope of this year’s version.

  6. Gavin,

    No worries…I’ve got both yours and Craig’s fixed. You Aussies!


  7. Ann,

    That’s how I feel about it too — honored to be a small part of such a huge and impressive offering.


  8. Efrain,

    You’re right — this is an amazing line up. I can remember last year when we were floored and elated with 103. So we’ll gladly take 237!


  9. Becky,

    We are in great company, aren’t we? This is going to be a kick ass book!


  10. C.B.

    It’s our pleasure. Anything that lets me team up with Gavin is happy work as far as I’m concerned!

    He’s the best.
