What is your latest release and what genre is it? Average Joe’s Story: Quest for Confidence was officially released on August 5th. It’s currently available in Kindle format on Amazon. The book may come off as a little self-improvement, but it is the first in what will be a series in general business.
Quick description: Average Joe’s Story tells Average Joe’s journey in real time starting from the lowest point, and gradually building success or failure over time. Average Joe’s Story introduces Average Joe to the audience, lays out the events that shaped his psyche, and provides insight from a collection of successful and interesting people who illustrate the framework for confidence. Average Joe’s Story is appealing to the reader because it approaches some of the same old material from an entirely different perspective relying purely on stories as opposed to dry facts and figures.
Christopher L. Hedges is a cancer patient who is using his journey in writing to liberate himself from his current shackles of disability. He was groomed for success following the plan that most people believe is the path, squandered opportunities for which people would sell their soul, and finally learned that tragedy can provide the knowledge of a better way of doing things.
What are you working on now?
Now my world revolves around marketing. Basically I‘m single-mindedly focused on promoting my current book. I get out for as many speaking events as I can. I actively seek out reviews and PR wherever possible. However, my attention is fixated on my 20,700 mile book tour where I’m trying to visit all 100 of the top book Markets in America.
Chris’s reading recommendation:
I just finished Malcolm Gladwell’s new book David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants. I highly recommend all of Malcolm’s work. I’m also working my way through You, Inc.: The Art of Selling Yourself which I’m basing some of my blogs on. I think we are all sales people, and this is an easy read on the subject of sales.
