Second Second Son of the Second Son

I am the second son of my father. Back in 1968 I had a son (Brian, father of Moses) with Midge (Cross), my first wife.  Shirley and I produced our eldest son (Jamie) in 1976, and in 1978, along came Jesse.  That makes Jesse The Second Second Son of the Second Son.  (If that doesn't sound mystical, what does?)

Jesse Stewart (J. S.) McDougall is an author.  Not of fiction, exactly.  Nor of non-fiction, exactly.  He writes "How To" books.  Most deal with some aspect of Internet marketing and/or with social media.  His latest has just appeared, and he is starting today a 5-day "Book Bomb," which he describes as follows:
A book bomb is an "organized buying time period" for a particular book. By asking all (potentially) interested people to buy or help promote the book during a specific week (...this week...)—as opposed to spread out over several weeks or months—we are able to push #tweetsmart up Amazon's "movers and shakers" pages—thus increasing our chances of getting noticed by a larger audience. (And, therefore, catapulting the book onto other readings lists maintained by The New York Times, Oprah Winfrey, Ashton Kutcher, Zeus, and the Queen of England....)
So, dear readers, please realize that this blog is, for better or for worse, my gift to you, freely given without ads or solicitation.  So, if you have any interest at all in social media or in Twitter, please return the favor by buying Jesse's latest book (thereby helping to keep our guest rooms free for Romanian (and other) visitors).

Thank you!
