Author and Honorary Domainer Lisa Bloom Releases Another Best Seller and Writing Bug Bites Ammar Kubba

TV personality and best selling author Lisa Bloom, the fiancée of well-known domain industry figure Braden Pollock (who was the subject of our December 2011 Cover Story) has another hit on her hands. Fresh off of her best selling book Think last year, Lisa released the perfect companion piece, titled Swagger, last week.  The new book has already shot up to #1 in the Conflict Management category and #5 in Parenting at Amazon.com. 

Lisa, who has accompanied Braden to several domain industry events, including Domaining Europe 2012 in Spain two weeks ago and DNCruise 2 last summer, offered "Straight Talk for Women to Stay Smart in a Dumbed-

Down World" in Think and has followed that up with "10 Urgent Rules for Raising Boys in an Era of Failing Schools, Mass Joblessness, and Thug Culture" in Swagger. The two volumes belong in every parents' library and judging from sales they are finding their way there in droves.

Dr. Phil was among the many anticipating the release of Lisa's new book. He had her on his nationally syndicated TV show as a special guest last week (Phil has had Lisa on a number of times and he also put Braden on the air, speaking from the audience, in an episode with Lisa last year). 

Lisa been a fixture on American television for the past decade, appreaing regularly on CBS, CNN, HLN and MSNBC shows. The award-winning journalist, legal analyst, trial attorney and daughter of renowned women's rights attorney, Gloria Allred, has also been featured on Oprah, Nightline, Today, Good Morning America, Rachael Ray and many other popular programs. From 2001-2009, Lisa hosted her own daily, live, national show on Court TV, and she has guest-hosted Larry King Live, The Early Show, and Showbiz Tonight.  

In addition to her many talents, Lisa is one of the most personable, down to earth people I've ever met. People who have become acquainted with her at  domain industry events will certainly attest to that and if you happen to see her at a future show, be sure to go up and say hello! 

While I'm on the subject of writing, I was excited to hear that one of the most knowledgeable (and personable) people in our industry, Thought Convergence CEO Ammar Kubba, is about to launch his own blog at Afterthought.com (you can leave you email address there now to be notified as soon as the blog goes live).

Ammar and his long time friend and business partner Kevin Vo were featured in our October 2007 Cover Story that was one of our most popular profiles ever. Together they run some of  the best known service providers in our business including TrafficZ, DomainTools and Aftermarket.com with Los Angeles based Thought Convergence serving as the parent company of those entities. 

Ammar, who describes himself as a serial entrepreneur and humanist, will bring great insight (and, I expect, his terrific sense of humor)  to a blog that will undoubtedly become a daily must read as soon as  it launches.
