The 2nd edition of The Age of Conversation is in the works. Editors Drew McLellan and Gavin Heaton are once again spearheading this path-breaking project.

The benefits are aplenty. More conversations. New perspectives. An innate understanding of conversational marketing and social media. Publishing opportunities. More value for readers. Community building. Networking. Supporting charity.

This year, AOC is bigger and better, in terms of authors and content. 275 bloggers from around the world, mostly with media and marketing backgrounds, are writing a 1-page chapter on the theme “Why Don’t People Get It?“.

To lend greater depth to book, the theme has been divided into the following sub-topics:

  • Manifestos
  • Keeping Secrets in the Age of Conversation
  • Moving from Conversation to Action
  • The Accidental Marketer
  • A New Brand of Creative
  • My Marketing Tragedy
  • Business Model Evolution
  • Life in the Conversation Lane

My chapter “The Smart Beast in the Creative Jungle” focuses on the new brand of creative required in the age of conversation.

“The Age of Conversation: Why People Don’t Get It?” will be on sale on Lulu.com from 21 August. All proceeds sales go to Variety, the children’s charity.

Meanwhile, fellow authors are promoting the book in various ways. Blogger-pal Ryan Barrett is offering a sneak preview of 1-line snippets from various chapters here.

@ Steve, Connie & CB: It’s a great honor to join you in AOC 2.0 and I so look forward to meeting you all again. 🙂

@ Drew & Gavin: You guys absolutely rock for taking on the mantle of giving the world AOC. I’m sure it must be more tasking for you this year, so all power to you…

@ Steve W: Hey Steve, this time the profile compiling is going to be a herculean task. But hopefully, I should plough on and get there. Really loved the profiles you compiled on the Blogger Socialites. That was such a neat idea and another great way to get to know each other better.
