2006 is off to a great start!

We're back safe in Burbank and nose is to the grindstone. I'm madly trying to finish Night + Day Las Vegas for At the same time I'm finsihing up radio promotion for The Thong Also Rises.

2006 is indeed off to a great start. I put a post up yesterday seeking volunteer contributors for Written Road and have already received four applications. One of which is for a paid position to blog for my Vegas travel site, VivaLasVegasBlog. Up until now I've had a lot of help from Kelly Amabile, but she's off on her own wild travel adventures now, and that is really inspiring.

And if it weren't great enough that my Trojans are in the Rose Bowl tonight and charging towards their 3Pete, or third National Championship, I got the added bonus of having the agent I want email me yesterday. She had picked up The Thong Also Rises over Christmas and was checking in with me to see how my TV show pitches and next book projects were coming along.

In other news I'm really looking forward to getting an office and an assistant. I like having my hand in several projects, and instead of trying to do it all myself, I'm just going to create a network or partnerships and assitants that can keep everything running smoothly. I posted on Written Road about the megalopolis (my friends are now calling the Jenopolis) that I'd like to create this year. Basically it just means that I want to push projects to fruition instead of leaving them as ideas. It didn't necessarily mean just for WR, it was meant for all that I'm doing.

Here's my year thus mapped so far:
January—finish the Night + Day Las Vegas for
February—write The Girlfriend's Guide to Dating a Poker Player, get agent, start selling it
March—push hard for a travel/gambling TV gig (Trip to Japan)
April—What Color is Your Jockstrap? releases
May—promotion for Jockstrap
July + August—World Series of Poker in Las Vegas
September—Written Road Travel Writing Class in Las Vegas (TBA)

On the poker front, this is a big poker month. Some are headed off to the Caribbean, while others are headed off to Australia. Still more friends are going to Tunica. Gavin Smith has made an open invite to Daniel Negreanu, to use 2006 to see who the best player in Canada really is and I wish him all the best luck. (Gavin is who I openly stole the name of this website from as his site is As for me playing poker, I've been spending time playing SNGs on Daniel Negreanu's FullContactPoker.

Ok, back to work. I hope 2006 is great for all of you and I appreciate you following along here since I don't have time to call everyone all the time. And, it goes without saying, FIGHT ON TROJANS! BEAT THE LONGHORNS!!!!

Current: Burbank, CA
Next: Would you believe, there is no next!!
