This month sees the launch and the Worldwide Virtual Book Tour for the fourth edition of A Career in Your Suitcase.
As part of our promotional efforts, my co-author, Colleen Reichrath-Smith and I, have done a few things that we hope will guarantee we not only sell books but that we share the news of the book as far and wide as possible.
One of the things we have done, is to get ourselves a speaking engagement or opportunity to present the book everywhere we go. Colleen has already been doing this in Washington DC and The Hague. I have done so in Miri, Sarawak and next week I go to Singapore to run workshops for Shell Outpost, CRCE and a private writing workshop too.

When CRCE asked me to make a short promotional video with them, to promote the workshop Jacinta Noonan and I are running called Passionate About Your Portable Career on 15 May, I jumped at the chance. Using Google Hangout, we recorded this interview by webcam, though I was in Brunei, and they in Singapore.
When you produce a video you get the chance to embed it on your website and share it on social media platforms. CRCE want people to book to attend my workshop. I want to sell more books.
Do you think you should consider creating a video too?
