Personal note; update to the update; new verbal self-defense book...

I just got word from my editor at Barnes & Noble that the new edition of The Gentle Art of Verbal Self-Defense will be coming out on March 30, 2009. She says it may take a little longer than that for stock to appear in all the stores, but the pub date is official.

Which means that I have only five months to do a launch for the book -- and I need your help. Am shamelessly asking for your help.

I need suggestions for things that you think I should do as part of the launch. Barnes & Noble doesn't do much (if any) marketing for its "exclusive" books -- books that are sold only in its stores. There won't be full-page ads in all the major magazines, the way there were for the first edition, back in the day, when B&N was heavily into direct mail selling. I'm on my own this time.

You realize that if it weren't for you [youall], there wouldn't have been a second edition?
