About the author

I am extremely openminded, read and travel widely and can draw upon a very diverse network globally. This book is the first collation of ideas expressed over many years and I believe it will cut through much of the nonsense imposed in public life by the excessive application of protocol, etiquette and political correctness. One of the reasons behind the success of the OFFLINE dinners is that I allow participants to be vulnerable and release their inhibitions. Nobody stands on ceremony there and nor should they routinely do so in everyday life. I don’t much care where attendees come from or what they may do but I care very much that they are givers, open to fresh ideas and perspectives, curious about the world around them and, most importantly, interested in the lives of others. Live life, live OFFLINE!

Synopsis

OFFLINE is the 21st c heir to “How To Make Friends And Influence People” by Dale Carnegie and represents the intersection of networking and mindfulness.

The essence of OFFLINE is twofold. On the one hand, it is simply the antithesis of online. Not that online is all bad. On the contrary, online is rather good but what is not good at all is this latter day obsession with it, whereby all those skills you learned at your mother’s knee, like reading and writing and talking, are all becoming dying arts. Yet the curious thing about it is that man, and for that matter woman, is a social animal by nature and that physical interaction is a pretty fundamental part of our being. But there is another dimension to OFFLINE that is arguably even more important than that. Most people follow a fairly straight path through life - commercial exigencies, the demands of parenthood, all the usual suspects play their part - but what typically occurs is that we fall into a sort of comfort zone, an area densely populated by straightforwardness, by convenience, by familiarity and, I dare say, a hint of laziness. As a result, I believe it is very valuable and, indeed, very necessary, as you pursue that straight path through life, that you periodically veer OFFLINE. You can veer back on it, of course, but sometimes that deviation of mind, body and soul can yield some surprising consequences! This book reinvigorates the undervalued art of building meaningful and enduring relationships, all too often overlooked by society’s shift to an online world, and acts as a manifesto to lead a truly connected and fulfilled life.

We all communicated perfectly well face to face for thousands of years before digital media ever showed up and, although personal technology has its merits, it is not so transformational that everything else should be thrown out of the window. Yet a significant swathe of the population struggle with the very notion of direct contact and its consequences. There is an overriding fear about what may go wrong and this suspicion and negativity pervades other aspects of our lives. The OFFLINE ethos is far more concerned with what may go right and acknowledges that the endless pursuit of perfection and excellence is overrated and potentially destructive. The book will embrace themes as diverse as The Charms Of Imperfection, Winning Kindly, The Joy Of Randomness, The Courtesies Of Life, Travels Of The Unexpected, The Art Of Sharing, How To Write So You Are Remembered, LOMO and Stepping Out Of Your Comfort Zone. I will share stories and anecdotes that reveal how our idiosyncrasies and frailties best define our individuality and should be celebrated as an accompaniment rather than an impediment to an enriched and satisfying life. OFFLINE will help readers to maximise their personal currency in both a business and social context, as the ability to develop empathy and rapport will be critical in a world dominated by algorithms and AI. The irony of social media is that it is deeply anti social and OFFLINE will enable those strangled by its grip to successfully reengage with real people in real time and real life.

Over many years, I have written numerous features on the vagaries of the human condition and the OFFLINE formula has been profiled by publications such as Forbes, Thrive Global and Meeting Professionals International. Although OFFLINE is principally focused on nurturing great relationships, I have also composed articles on behaviour, attitudes, codes of conduct and cultural taboos. It has been partly informed by the OFFLINE dinners I have hosted over the past five years which always draw an eclectic audience, all ages, all backgrounds, boys and girls. I share a bunch of stories over the evening that touch upon aspects of the OFFLINE philosophy but it is all about the people. I watch entirely disparate attendees find points of convergence, often in the most surprising ways, and it is a constant reminder that there is far more that connects rather than separates us. Consequently, I have a keen appreciation of the quirks and sensitivities of life, honed by experience and observation. As I also have a background in the art world, I will share my insights on ways of looking, building trust and confidence in your counterparts and being prepared to change your mind. These themes are also relevant to my travels from Mexico City to Marrakech where I will demonstrate that, wherever you may live, we are all the same but different!

Why support this book?

  • Constant online communication is creating loneliness, isolation, fear of failure, peer group pressure, need for conformity and anxiety. There is abundant evidence that people are scared of causing offence, acting inappropriately, being ostracised, marginalised or excluded and OFFLINE will strip away the veneer of propriety that stops them being themselves.
  • The book will take away the mystique of likeability and show how you are equipped to develop great relationships.
  • My network encompasses c 1,350 people in my address book, almost 1,500 on LinkedIn, at least 500 past attendees of the OFFLINE dinner, plus numerous connections in the art world and beyond.
  • I know a number of writers in business and beyond who I believe would endorse the book. I may ask the philosopher Robert Rowland Smith, author of Breakfast With Socrates and a very good friend of mine, to write the foreword.
  • I can offer various incentives to encourage pre ordering such as attendance as my guest at an OFFLINE dinner or spending an afternoon in an art gallery or museum. There are endless possibilities.

Similar titles

  • How To Make Friends And Influence People by Dale Carnegie. This is a timeless classic and many of its themes and ideas resonate today. However, the language and tone is redolent of a very different era so OFFLINE takes its best principles and adapts them for the modern age.
  • Ten Arguments For Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now by Jason Lanier (Vintage 2019). This is really a polemic decrying the insidious influence of social media and its addictive qualities. Although I agree with the broad thrust of his message, OFFLINE seeks to create solutions for those lost online and in life more generally.
  • The Wisdom And Teachings Of Stephen Covey (Simon & Schuster 2012) This is a thoughtful and measured book but focuses on leading a decent and upright life. OFFLINE does not pretend to offer spiritual guidance but a road map to negotiate the scourge of online mania and that straight path through life.

Audience

This book is accessible to everyone but especially addresses those in business and professional communities who struggle to achieve success through an inability to communicate face to face, cannot connect with those outside their immediate circle, can’t maintain a conversation or overwhelmed by the digital universe and wish to revisit and relearn the simpler pleasures of life. OFFLINE will hold the hand of even the most seasoned executives who wish to capture attention for all the right reasons!

Advance praise

I have received a wide range of testimonials from attendees at OFFLINE dinners and other events I have hosted and will review these in due course.

Blooming Twig logo Blooming Twig

BLOOMING TWIG is an award-winning boutique publishing house, media company, and thought leadership marketing agency. Based in New York City and Tulsa, we have represented and re-branded hundreds of thought leaders, published more than 400 titles in all genres, and built up a like-minded following for authors, speakers, trainers, and organizations with our bleeding-edge marketing strategies.

Since 2005, at Blooming Twig, we have been building our profile as the little literary engine that could, ignoring fads and sticking with work that has depth and the power to make a difference. Now our company’s trademark phrase “books that matter” has become the name of our Thought Leadership Marketing Agency: M8R, and we have expanded our desire to assist motivated individuals and organizations with vision to extract their intellectual property, make more significant profit, and change the world.
Our company shares the same brash, ethical, and DIY ideals that revolutionized popular music in the early 1990’s. Blooming Twig was founded by Kent Gustavson PhD, with the empowering notion that authorship isn’t just for the elite or the privileged. Blooming Twig is about giving the people with something to say (“thought leaders”) a platform, walking its clients up to their own influencer pulpit, and making sure there is a like-minded crowd assembled to hear the meaningful message.

Our writing, editing, and marketing team is made up of a domestic and international roster of experts, and our secretive methods proudly eschew the use of any hard-selling or “black hat” practices. Our ultimate goal is to be the amplifier for amplifiers; we like to say, Let us be the bass player to your Hendrix.

The material we release is definitely diverse, but what our authors share is a deep desire to change the world. Our authors feel transformed through the writing of their books, and their books in turn change people’s lives. That gets us out of bed every morning.

Something or Other Publishing logo Something or Other Publishing

Something or Other Publishing (SOOP) is a Madison, Wisconsin based independent press dedicated to publishing industrious authors in a wide variety of genres. SOOP has a unique model called author-driven publishing whereby we accept Book Idea submissions rather than completed manuscripts. Authors then work through a self-education program while getting votes. This educational experience combined with the email list built by gathering votes prepares authors for a successful pre-order campaign like those conducted on Publishizer.

When expressing interest in campaigns on Publishizer, Something or Other Publishing is not looking for authors to work through its standard Book Idea Program. Instead, it is looking to establish a relationship with the author and to determine if there’s an alignment of goals and the potential for a close, productive working relationship. If SOOP likes what it sees, it offers a traditional full service publishing contract.

Key advantages to working with SOOP include the level of personalized care our authors receive. Although our Director of Publications worked for big New York publishing companies for over twenty five years and our Director of Editorial Services has decades of experience in print publications, both work closely with all of our authors. We have also become adept at social media marketing, harnessing the power of the crowd to promote authors and get them exposure previously reserved for big name authors published by big name publishing companies.

The Boyle & Dalton imprint was founded in 2014, as a quality-vetted imprint of Columbus Publishing Lab. Founder Brad Pauquette conceptualized a hybrid model which balances the financial and rights model of self publishing with the quality controls and production excellence of a traditional publisher.

Working together with authors, we produce books that compete with their traditionally published counterparts, but we adapt to the realities of modern publishing and take advantage of the technologies available to us.
Our designers and editors produce exceptional books that are distributed in both print and digital formats to all major retailers, including Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com. Boyle & Dalton carefully considers all submissions for publication, based on manuscript quality. Boyle & Dalton does not acccept erotica or children's books.

We vet all submissions for quality, and only accept titles that will preserve the reputation of the Boyle & Dalton imprint.

All Boyle & Dalton books undergo a rigorous editing and production process, including developmental editing to ensure that your book is the best that it can be.

Brandylane Publishers, Inc. logo Brandylane Publishers, Inc.

Brandylane is a small, independent press, founded in 1985, that publishes fiction, non-fiction, poetry, memoir, and children’s books. We publish under a traditional arrangement and also offer a cooperative track for emerging authors. We believe that books make a difference, that lives and the world are changed by the power of words and images, and that large publishing houses neglect a wealth of good writing. We are especially interested in manuscripts that teach, promote, and encourage understanding, tolerance, and peace; seek to improve the lives of people and communities in the U.S. and around the globe; promote environmental preservation; and promote and teach health and wellness.

Under our cooperative arrangement, we invest a portion of the publishing costs and offer a stepped royalty structure from 30% to 60%--higher than the industry average. One distinguishing feature of our program is that our marketing effort includes a one-year launch, followed by two additional years of promotion through our social media, website, our seasonal genre, and subject matter email campaigns, and continuous support from our PR team.

Brandylane has been defined by excellence for over three decades, and we distinguish ourselves by producing meaningful, memorable, high quality books, and by being accessible and providing unparalleled personal support to our authors. If you choose to publish through Brandylane, you’ll discover quickly that we work hard for success in a highly competitive marketplace. We can assure you that the books we publish under our traditional and cooperative arrangements are comparable to the quality of design, production, launch and distribution offered by the major publishing houses, and will give you the best possible chance for success.

Atmosphere Press logo Atmosphere Press

Atmosphere Press is an independent full-service publisher for books in genres ranging from non-fiction to fiction to poetry to children's picturebooks, with a special emphasis on being an author-friendly approach to getting a book into the world. We're professional, honest, and kind.

Here’s what we stand for:

Honesty: because our mission is to be author-friendly, that means always giving honest advice about the ins and outs of the authorial life. We are dedicated to sticking by one of our founding precepts: “if I were the author, what would I want to know?”

Transparency: publishing is rife with dodgy behavior, from predatory vanity presses who promise the moon to traditional presses who make book changes without the author’s permission. We’re dedicated to letting you see the wizard behind the curtain, so you can rest easy that everything’s on the up and up.

Professionalism: with decades of combined years of writing, editing, designing, and publishing experience, our staff knows the ins and outs of the industry, and will be responsive and helpful. And of course, we will only publish books that truly contribute something wonderful to the world.

Kindness: as an author-friendly press, we take the word “friendly” seriously. A good publisher shouldn’t be just a business partner, but should be full of people you’d want to invite to dinner. Whether it be making a good joke or allaying your worries about being an author, kindness is our hallmark.

Making Your Book Awesome: we really can’t settle for anything less. We want our authors and their readers to be blown away when they first hold that book in their hands. It needs to look good inside and out, and feel good to the touch. And, of course, the words need to be top-notch, and our editors are devoted to making that the case.
