The Next Chapter

If you’re wondering why you are seeing a few more guest posts or shorter posts than usual, there’s a reason.

The next chapters in this incredible adventure are soon to unfold. Within the next few weeks, I’ll share some special news about Engage…on 3/7/11. But, before then, I would like to let you in on a little secret. I’ve already started writing my next book.

While, I’m not yet ready to share the title or summary, I will say this, it’s not a book on social media.  It is something however, that will speak to every one of us as individuals and professionals…as entrepreneurs and educators…as enterprise leaders and local business owners.

I’m teaming up again with the amazing team at John Wiley & Sons and the book is set for release later in 2011. Stay tuned…

  • Ken Mueller

    Really looking forward to this. Engage! has been incredibly important to me on a variety of levels, so I can’t wait to see what else you have in store.

    • briansolis

      That’s great Ken. I love that!

  • Lucretia M Pruitt

    Nice! Looking forward to seeing the next one Brian. Which, because of this picture, will now be known as “the White Book” in keeping with the Beatles tradition 😉

    • briansolis

      Ahhh yes…shall we repeat, number 4, number 4, number 4? 😉

      p.s. Finally stopping through Denver in April on the Engage tour! Bacon?

    • Lucretia M Pruitt

      I love it. Number 4 it is!

      And absolutely yes on Bacon!!! Will your awesome wife be here too? Or just you this time? I will hunt you down at TechSet in Austin too – but any time I can drag you away from the adoring crowds is cherished as well. Dude, seriously, only you could have the waiter at a restaurant we didn’t know we were going to be a huge fan of yours and secure us bacon-wrapped-bacon. :)
      Besides, I need to get my copy of Engage signed.

  • Erica OGrady

    Congrats Brian!!! So proud of you 😉

    Outstanding! Can hardly wait! Enjoyed Engage immensely, and keep it constantly near as a guidepost; not at all surprised that you are writing on a topic other than social media. Your research is impeccable and your ability to present it is unsurpassed!

    Very exciting, Brian. Keep up the great work. The new book sounds amazing.

    After reading Engage, it became the book I buy for my clients and often refer to it as the closest thing to an MBA in social media. Can’t wait to read the next one. Hope to see you at SXSW.

    • briansolis

      Clay, I don’t know what else to say except THANK YOU. That’s wonderful news.

    Time to turn it to 11. Good deal Brian!

    • briansolis

      Wesley, Engage was “11” – I’m currently shopping for amps that go to “12!”

  • Paul Fabretti

    Sincere best wishes Brian.

    Looking forward to what 2011 brings you.
