Book Update #1

by Dan Gheesling

Mirror-SmallHey guys, I’ve been doing so much writing on my new book lately that I have neglected the blog. :)

Things with Clean Your Own Mirror: 6 Necessary Duties to Lead and Influence People  are going very well.

I have been on a strict writing schedule, writing every single day in preparation for the launch of the book in early December.

Hiring an Editor

Kate-Ward-Dan-Gheesling-EditorAt this point I am really happy with how the book is taking shape, and that’s because I’ve hired an amazing editor in Kate Ward!

When writing this new book, I really wanted to take it to the next level, and to me that meant getting the most talented people that I know on board.

I initially met Kate as a result of an article she wrote comparing me to Dexter Morgan (tear).  I started following the rest of her work online, and noticed it was all very well done.

She is an extremely talented writer and now is the Managing Editor at

Kate has brought a lot to the table with the new book, and in regards to this project, it’s the best decision I’ve made.

You can check out some of Kate’s other work here, and you should also follow her on Twitter, because she posts a lot of great things, like this:

    Hey Dan

    Could you let me know about just one of the six duties? Just to give an insight into what the book will be like

    I finally ordered your first book, yesterday, as a birthday gift, to myself! I cant wait to read it. As far as your new book, I will be pre ordering it in a few weeks. I am hoping you will be addressing “How to read people” as well as influencing them. I think you are an amazing writer (I follow your blog) and I also think you have magical powers when it comes to PEOPLE (ex:Dan’s Funeral), and look forward to reading both of your books.

    Nice to hear from you that you are working intensively on the book. I hope it will travel safety across the Atlantic and will be in my hands before New year. P.S. Don’t forget to sign it.
    Unpassionately waiting.

      Unpassionatly- wrong.
      Impatiently I wanted to say :):)
