England away

More reason to be cheerful... The rights to my book just got acquired in the UK and Commonwealth by Nicholas Brealey publishing. Nick obviously knows a thing or two about the business. Last year, he published John Battelle's The Search and Carly Fiorina's Tough Choices (I've always wanted to write like John and look like Carly). He's also got another Cult book: The Cult of the Luxury Brand -- which is about "luxeplosion" in Asia. Maybe we can combine books and call it The Cult of the Luxury Amateur Brand. Best thing of all is that it will come out in June -- simultaneously with the US edition. So it will give me a great excuse to come to London to launch the book and see old friends.

And they've already come up with a very funny cover for the English edition:
