I’ve been wanting to make this official for some time, but now that the contracts are signed, I can let the cat out of the bag. I’m excited to be co-authoring a new book on the role of communications in promoting business transparency. I’m even more thrilled to be co-writing the book with John C.

Greg Yaitanes, who also directed the first episode of the action-adventure series, says in a tweet, “Gonna be twittering for the east coast from fox lot and then over to Nathan’s house for a premiere party/live twitter commentary - tune in!” (Nathan is Nathan Fillion, star of the series as well as the lead in the late, great “Firefly.”)
