Small Business CEO magazine
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Small Business CEO magazine was launched on August 1st. Check it out at http://www.smallbusinessceomagazine.com

They need lots of articles. Send article ideas to Stacy Larmore, Managing Editor. Email: editor@smallbusinessceomagazine.com. Put "article submission" in the subject line.

Dark-Hunter YouTube video
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The book trailer for the latest book in the Dark Hunter series was featured a few days ago as one of YouTube's hot videos. So far almost 180,000 people have viewed this book trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-mQoCZC_JI

Also 371 people have rated it and 300 people have written comments. Not too bad. Of course, not near the numbers I teach you how to get via my Ten Million Eyeballs Events: http://www.tenmillioneyeballs.com.
