The Age of Conversation

From conversation on a blog, to jokey sort of dream, to reality. Drew McLellan and Gavin Heaton's brilliant Age of Conversation project launches on Monday, July 16th! The goal of bringing together 100 writers to opine on conversation was a crazy idea, but one that has come to fruition.

You can be a part of The Age of Conversation by bringing home a copy. It's for the kids y'know!

The history of the project is HERE.

The book is dedicated to the amazing CK's Mom. You can also donate to Habitat for Humanity in Sandra Kerley's name.

The book really is "for the kids" with 100% of the proceeds donated to Variety Children's Charity.

Launch date: Monday, July 16th

Formats/Prices:

Hardback $29.99
Paperback $16.95
E-book $9.99

Every participant in the project has agreed that all proceeds will be donated to Variety Children's Charity in the name of our friend Christina Kerley's mother Sandra. So you have the opportunity to buy a great book, and do something good. It is my understanding that "the good" is exponential when you buy more than one copy.

The brilliant writers that have allowed my bit of madness into the smarty pool:
