Hi Everyone. I wanted to bring you up to date with what's going on with Gold Digger Nation. It's been an interesting experience so far, and we're really just getting started.
In early January, I was hired to sign books as part of a product offering promotion at a show in Las Vegas. Having never attended the Adult Entertainment Show before, it was quite an eye opener. There must have been 30,000 people attending and it felt like I spoke to 10,000 of them. Met some very interesting people, and there was a lot of chatter about the title of the book and its' tag line "why you should remain single". At this show, I was preaching to the choir. Many had dropped by to tell me their marriage/divorce horror stories. Others, just walked by and gave the thumbs up gesture or just laughed at the blown up book cover signage. I came away with a whole bunch of ideas, some very interesting contacts, and exposure to another dimension I had never seen before.
Recently, I've engaged PRPost, a public relations firm here in Toronto to launch my Canadian Media campaign. A press release will be going out the beginning of February and I'm anticipating a flurry of radio, print and TV interviews. The press release and timing coincides with Valentine's Day, a date that is historically linked with bad judgement. Men especially do some silly things, like get down on one knee and present a shiny object supposedly equivalent to three months of salary, as an expression of subservience. The diamond size and cost is linked directly to the sacrifice he has made, as an expression of the degree of love. Valentines is a dangerous time for alot of men as they do some very stupid things, and not thinking of the consequences of their actions. That's the goal of this holiday......wanting you to cast good judgement to the side, and blindly act on emotions and feelings. Be careful!
Gold Digger Nation received a plum of a review from, MotherLodeBeth, a top 100 Amazon reviewer. I was flattered by her kind words and the message she communicated. In addition, a family law attorney contacted me to ask permission to reprint part of the book to give to clients contemplating marriage. It was my pleasure to pass on the information to them.
Check out the website, www.golddiggernation.com. I have added a marriage "test" for anyone thinking of entering the institution. The Canadian Equal Parenting Coalition, and the American Coalition of Fathers and Children are my two charities which will receive all the profits from the book and related projects. I hope to raise as much as I can to assist these two great organizations and the work they do.
I was on Len Connell's show "Sex and Money" a few weeks ago. Len opened the phone lines to various callers. A topic such as marriage/divorce/gold digger nation.....stirs up alot of controversy, and I got an ear full from a couple of them. It was a great experience and Len has asked me back on WKND at a later date, due to the interest in the subject matter.
Thursday February 11, 2010 @ 10:00 a.m, I'll be cutting my teeth on T.V. as WOWTV, channel 808 on Rogers in Toronto will have me as a guest for their morning show. It's not quite Larry King, but I'm excited.
