And remember, you're welcome to hang around Portable Empire Island in Second Life any time you like... there's usually somebody there to talk to, and some very interesting JVs and co-writes are happening due to relationships formed on the island.
If you're new to Second Life, my buddy Gideon has put together a couple of videos to make it easy for you.

In the Future, Will All Book Launch Parties Be in Cyberspace?
Pat O'Bryan, best-selling author of Internet marketing books, has invited the entire world to a celebrity studded online party to celebrate the release of "Your Portable Empire -- How To Make Money Anywhere While Doing What You Love", September 4, at "Portable Empire Island" in the online community "Second Life."
Wimberley, TX (PRWEB) September 2, 2007 -- The champagne and cigars will be virtual, but the party will be very real.
On Tuesday, September 4, online marketing expert Pat O'Bryan will host an online party to celebrate the release of his new book, "Your Portable Empire -- How To Make Money Anywhere While Doing What You Love."
I'll be on the island all day, giving away DVDs, CDs and other gifts to the people who make the effort to come to the party.
O'Bryan, a former "broke musician" who has developed a simple seven-step system for making money online, wrote the book to share his Portable Empire System for creating a profitable business you can run from anywhere.
He's holding his party at his Portable Empire Island in the online community, Second Life (www.secondlife.com).
"Since the book is about how to make money from anywhere," he said, "a party you can attend from anywhere seemed like a good idea.
"So many of my friends and clients live internationally, I decided to make the Portable Empire Island available all day on Tuesday, so that we can celebrate together," he continued. "I'll be on the island all day, giving away DVDs, CDs and other gifts to the people who make the effort to come to the party."
There is a lot to celebrate. Dozens of his friends have banded together to create a special bonus program for people who purchase his book from Amazon.com on Tuesday. In what must certainly be a first for the book-publishing industry, each person who registers their Amazon.com receipt at www.yourportableempire.com/book will receive over $10,000 in downloadable bonuses.
"I intend to hit #1 on Amazon.com on Tuesday," said O'Bryan, "to do that you've got to sell a LOT of books. Giving away over ten grand in bonuses to each buyer of a $16 book seemed like it might do the trick."
Joe Sugarman says that Pat's book is "the easy-to-follow instruction manual on how to first discover your niche and then build it into a big enterprise that can run itsemf from almost anywhere ... A great book for anybody serious about a better life."
O'Bryan's book has been called "the most dangerous book ever written," by best-selling author and star of the movie "The Secret," Dr. Joe Vitale. "Dangerous because companies may try to ban it ... If you're working for someone else, he or she may not want to see you reading this book."
