Only One For 1.1

I'm just thrilled that on Tuesday November 8th I will be publishing Walking Down The Avenue, release 1.1. It is not a major re-write.   If you've already downloaded and read release 1.0,  there really isn't anything brand new and earth shattering in 1.1 that you would likely want or need to buy another copy for the .1 upgrade.    I have expanded the lists of connected networks to include all of the new possibilities,  and I have made a few minor changes to accurately reflect the current state of game play on Empire Avenue.

The folks whom I really want to push this book upon are the newest newbies,  continually arriving on Empire Avenue.   I do believe that having the book very early on in their Empire Avenue experience will give the most bang for the book and help newbies much more quickly understand how to use and play on the Avenue.   Since my goal is to try to pitch the book mostly to brand new players,   my marketing will be very different this time.     I will not be doing any shareholder mail promotions and I only intend to distribute one  100% discount coupon.    I will be sending it to my low volume e-mail list only.    You can sign up in the sidebar at the right.    Everyone who has signed up for the list by Tuesday November 8th  will get an e-mai on that date which will contain the one and only coupon code which will be valid until the end of the year, December 31, 2011.      I hope that many of those who receive the coupon code will take it upon themselves to pass it along to newbies as they meet them on the Avenue.      It is find to share the coupon directly with any one other user by any private communications.     I specifically ask that anyone receiving this coupon NOT post it to any discussions, groups, bulletin boards, listerservs or any other means of communicating with more than one person at a time.

The price of the new 1.1  edition will only be 99cents and my hope is that with a lot less coupons going out,  at least some of my audience will choose to pay the dollar and get the book.    My sincerest thanks to each and every one of you who have downloaded and read Walking Down The Avenue.     I have had so much fun on Empire Avenue and in my online social life on the various sites and networks.     It's been a real joy to work on the book,  and I am very much looking forward to releasing a slide show presentation of Walking Down The Avenue which I hope will add real value to the material.     So don't forget and don't be shy-- sign up for my low volume e-mail list and as soon as release 1.1 is published I will shoot you a coupon code so you can download the latest copy  and keep it handy to share with any newbies you meet.
