We got an order from our book distributor this morning that put us into the sold-out first printing category!!! Save those first editions, folks; they're collectors editions now!

Excellent work, Amy.

We received our first copy of the second edition yesterday, with the rest sitting on a UPS truck somewhere in the Midwest. Some slight modifications to the cover, and a few typos corrected.

Amy continues to be a self-running publicity machine. She had an article about her (and the book) in Friday's Fremont Bulletin, which included a picture of the book above the masthead on the front page. Amy will also be doing some local appearances soon: a local writer's workshop at Barnes and Noble in Fremont on Jan 13th at 7:30 pm, and a workshop on writing creative non-fiction at the Learning Annex at 291 Geary Street, #510, San Francisco, on March 2nd at 6:30 pm.

It's a bay area station; their studio is down near the San Jose airport. I had some trouble picking them up last night when I was in Pleasanton, but they came in fine on the bay side of the hills.

So how did Amy's interview go, jberger?

It went quite well - the host is interested in bringing her back for another interview with some other guests. It tended toward the more serious aspects, rather than humorous, and she managed to 'zing' Amy with a question or two regarding the differences in compensation packages between men and women (men's had traditionally been more likely to include stock options; women's less so until recently). Amy sounded so smooth and professional that I didn't recognize her at first! She's also conducting a writing workshop at Barnes and Noble in Fremont tonight, for a writer's group that meets there about once a month.

That's great! Please offer my congratulations to Amy.

Amy will be featured on CNNfn's "Business Unusual" on August 11th, at 8:30 pm EDT, 5:30 pm PDT. If anyone can tape this and send me a copy, I would greatly appreciate it, as our cable system doesn't carry CNNfn.

Amy Berger wrote a very brave piece about her late grandmother in the San Jose Mercury News: <http://www0.mercurycenter.com/premium/arts/docs/berger.htm>
