Guy Kawasaki asks Book Publishing Expert Kristen Eckstein to Review New Book

Guy Kawasaki reached out to publishing industry expert Kristen Eckstein for advice regarding his up-and-coming book, APE: Author, Publisher Entrepreneur (working title). Eckstein worked on the book and returned it marked up with comments, corrections and suggestions for improvement. Kawasaki was floored, and said he had to push back his targeted release date for the book because he wanted to implement over 95% of Eckstein’s suggestions. Eckstein will be featured in several places inside APE and is excited and grateful about this opportunity.

“I never check my Google+ account,” Eckstein admits, “and thanks to one of my staff designers I decided to check it the day Guy posted a question about the vanity publishing house, AuthorHouse. Since I couldn’t keep my mouth shut, I commented and we began a dialogue. I’m forever indebted to my designer for pointing me to Google+ that day and for Guy for writing such an amazing book every author needs to read (and featuring me in it is bonus)!”

APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur is tentatively scheduled for release in late 2012 or early 2013.
