Will ebooks Kill Printed Books?

Are print books dead?

This past weekend at Bob "Bob the Teacher" Jenkins SIMPLE program in Wilmington, NC I meet a very impressive woman. Felicia Slattery went to college on a public-speaking scholarship and has made speaking and effective communications her life work.

Felicia has written a pretty cool book, which I bought with real (plastic)money. The title is CA$H in on Communication. This book is for home-based and small business owners and could be your essential guide to effective, inexpensive communications. I didn't find it on Amazon (yet, it just very recently came out), but you can contact Felicia at 630-554-0636 or

Anyway, to get to the point here, yesterday on Twitter Felicia (@feliciaslattery) sent a Tweet about a New York Times article of interest to anyone on any side of the book authoring and publishing business. Click the link in this sentence to see what the New York Times says about the business side of ebooks versus print.


  1. Hi Bruce,
    Thanks for the kind comments about my book. Bob The Teacher Jenkins' event was the premiere of it -- and the 1st time I saw it in print!

    Cash in on Communication will be available on Amazon soon when we have a chance to make sure the first printing had all the i's dotted & t's crossed.

    I enjoyed meeting you & your lovely wife and hearing the story of how you met.

  2. Hey Felicia,

    That's awesome! I know people will want an easy way to buy "CA$H in on Communication" so when it's up on Amazon that'll be cool.

    I'm taking my time reading "CA$H in on Commmunication" because I want the info to really sink it. I love it because you've packed so much into each important topic and yet it's still accessible and instantly usable.

    I was talking with one of my accountability buddies yesterday, Lisa Rothstein from San Diego, the "Davinci Diva", and she said she, too is a huge fan of your work (oh, and you, of course). Lisa is using your "Signature Speech" program and finds it extremely valuable (me, too, of course).

    So yeah, I'll watch for "CA$H in on Communication" on Amazon so I can tell my friends and clients.
