WHAT A WRITING WEEK I HAD!

It’s official, Small Brand America IV is done. My ode to the craft brewing industry is complete and out there. As they say in the infomercial world, “But wait, there’s more…”

In an almost unbelievable whirlwind, I’m pleased to announce I published twenty-seven books in the last week. That’s not a misprint.

27!

“How can this be true?” you are probably asking.

Well, what I did was deconstruct Small Brand America IV into 26 mini books. I’ve always said the individual chapters in the Small Brand America series read like individual books. Think about it – you’ve got an entire company history, the story about the person or people behind the brand and tons of photos showcasing everything about the brand.

I figure fans of the breweries can buy just those individual chapters. People just wanting to get a feel for the book might like them as well.

Of course, I felt just releasing an individual chapter doesn’t give enough value so in addition to the reprint of what appears in the regular book, I also added bonus material with a “behind the scenes” approach. Rather than a narrative of the company with no author’s voice, in the bonus material I speak directly to the reader and tell them what the interview was like, share information which didn’t make it into the book and show off some additional photos.

I have to tell you that this book has everything. The stories of the individuals behind the brands are so interesting it’s unbelievable. I go into these projects totally blind. I have no idea who the individuals are owning these companies before I reach out to them. Then you find out they covered the Middle East for Associated Press during the assassination of then Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, they got pulled into the business after already retiring two times, they worked as a carny and much more (these are all real stories detailed in the book, mind you). It’s so fascinating and truly and honor to be able to bring them to the world with this book.

The printed book is available for $14.99, electronically for $9.99 and the individual chapter mini books are only 99¢ each. Here are the links to all of them:
