Featured on Friday: A Book Launch Festival

If you are a part of Team Buzz Builder, if you follow Weaving Influence on Facebook or Twitter, if you’ve connected with us on LinkedIn or Google+, or even if you only know us because of this blog, there’s no way that you have failed to notice that we have been launching a lot of books lately.

Whew! In the last six weeks we have been a part of seven book launch and relaunch teams. It has been an exciting, invigorating experience that so many of you have been a part of, and we want to share some of the highlights from each launch with you today. I’m only sorry we don’t have the time or space to share all the links from each launch, as so many of you were generous with your time and efforts.
