We’ve been trying to balance life, work and now a book that yesterday went as high as #222 on the Amazon best sellers list, ahead of Mitt Romney’s book and ahead of Jesse Ventura’s book, both of whom were former guests on YOUR SHOW by the way. Hopefully, they’ll come back on now. If you can’t buy a copy of the book at your local bookstore, chart our Amazon progress here: http://www.amazon.com/Blueprint-Democrats-Colorado-Republicans-Everywhere/dp/1936218003
Yesterday’s spike in attention came from a front-page placement on the influential conservative blog, redstate.com. The RedState founder Erick Erickson called the book a “must read” and Ned Ryun, the head of a group called American Majority gave it a glowing recommendation: http://www.redstate.com/nedryun/2010/04/14/the-blueprint-how-the-democrats-won-colorado-and-why-republicans-everywhere-should-care/
I spent part of my morning doing my first talk radio segment on the book. I spoke with Jim Pfaff of the Jim Pfaff Show and you can see how I did here: http://www.opiniontimes.com/progressive-democrats/
We’ve been blogging all week at one of the great independent bookstores in America, Powell’s out of Portland. We’ve related this story to Aesop’s Fables, former Michigan football coach Bo Schembechler and former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis. How is that possible. Look here to find out: www.powells.com/blog
We’re expecting to be on Huffington Post today, so we’ll see how much distance we put between us and Romney and Ventura.
Have a great day.
