Looks like a cool read......I'll pick up a kindle copy, and post my review.

Is that actually you on the back cover with no shirt on?

No problem, I only read some random pages tonight as I recover from interval training, and the part that had me laughing my ass off was:

"Women make love the same way they order Pizza" - THAT SECTION ALONE, WAS FUCKING HILARIOUS!!! Great tip!!! I laughed so hard, I really don't need to do body core training tomorrow, thanks!

RE: BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!!
I just finished the book. This morning, I'm sitting on a lonely beach in Miami, I can see shadows of other people at a distance, but mostly, it's just me - sitting under a coconut tree wondering what 2013 will bring me. I get emotional at the end of January, not at the beginning when everyone screams Happy New Year. I guess I'm living the Captain Power secret society life already......I have a lot, and have nothing (it's complicated).

Anyway, about the book...AWESOME, FUNNY, and a must have "Guy handbook" for todays modern male. I wish I had these types of guides when I was 15 in New York City....hell, even when I was 20 in College. Now, at age 38 - I can just relate to it as I read and tap myself on the back for having accomplished many of the things mentioned in his book.

Anyone who owns this book should not read it cover-to-cover as a traditional book, but rather have it as a "Guy Handbook" where you can go back and reference specific sections, to specific needs you have in your life. He even has a seciton on whitening your teeh to look more attractive - awesome and very useful stuff.

Thumbs up from Mixx - lots of great tips, a lot of humor, and a lot of value for anyone looking for pointers on being an overall successful modern man in 2013 and beyond.


Great Job captain....i loved the ending!! Hope you have more books coming out soon...I'll co-author one with you. Wink

Mixx

RE: BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!!
Thanks Mixx, I appreciated the review! I have a 2nd project I am slowly working on, maybe I can get you involved if your interested.

Workout tips: I argue with people 24/7 on bodyspace.com, but I'm not a big eater. I don't use any supplements, and I like to feel "hungry". Right now I am doing 4 days in the gym, and 4 or 5 days outside cardio. I usually run 2-4 miles at a 7 minute mile or less pace. I'm 5'8, 158 lbs.

Sales and Promotion: My paperback sales are atrocious, but Ive been kicking ass in kindle sales. I think I sold 10 today already. A couple experienced writers told me to keep my first book price really low, and work on getting volume and free reviews from people with prime.

I'm going to keep up with the online promotion, and then next month I am going to go old school. Going to print 1,000 fliers at a time, and litter NYC cars and sidewalks with a copy of my cover....

Lets just say I cant quit my day job....

RE: BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!!
What is your online promotion strategy though? I looked at your blog and no offense but it needs work, the design is poor and it looks unprofessional plus it's a blogspot blog, you need your own self hosted blog and domain really.

Are you building an email list of buyers that you can market future books to in the future? If not you really need to.

I sell ebooks / info products too but in a totally different niche.

You don't even need a pro, you just need to get yourself some hosting, install the Wordpress software and set up something simple by yourself.

Still you haven't answered my question, what's your online promotion strategy? What are you doing? I'm trying to give you some pointers if I can but hard unless I know what you're already doing.
