Chapter 1: January 20, 2007


Welcome back.  This week, Chapter 1, including:

  • Daniel’s futile search for a Liberal candidate in the safest Tory seat in the land;
  • His meeting with Muriel Parkinson, the stalwart Liberal who ran in the last five elections;
  • His winning strategy for securing the boathouse apartment he desperately wanted.

Feel free to leave a comment right here on the blog or send me an e-mail to [email protected].  Thanks for listening.  Next week, Chapter 2.

    We met at the New Media Conference in Toronto in late November and I have been listening to and enjoying your Inside PR podcast since then. In fact, on the way home from the conference I stopped and purchased an iPod – I was so inspired! Since the conference I’ve been in the listening and reading stage of my podcast and blog experience. This is my first comment post – yikes, I’m moving on up in the social media community.

    Good for you, taking a risk and going after your dream! I’m enjoying the story. It is an interesting way to take in a story. It is nice to sit back, close your eyes and be able to visualize the story as it unfolds – something not as easily done while reading a book. You make the visualization very easy with your wonderful descriptive narrative.

    I’m looking forward to the next chapter.

    Hey Cheryl. Thanks so much for your encouraging comment. I confess, I do feel a little nervous about this enterprise but my interest in experimenting with the power of social media won the day. I’m grateful that you’re listening. Thanks…

    Hi Terry,

    Steve (from China) here. This is great! Really enjoying listening to your novel here in Shanghai. Very impressed with this initiative and looking forward to listening to the entire book. Fingers crossed a publisher picks it up.

    All the best
