Storiebook Cafe last Saturday evening held a book signing for Kathryn Jones, editor of the Glen Rose Reporter, during Girls Night Out.
Jones signed copies of her new business book about Amway Corp. Signed editions are available at Storiebook, directly from Kathryn at the Reporter office or on Amazon.com.
The book recently hit Amazon's No. 1 rank on the list of business books about small business, entrepreneurs and franchises. It was published by John Wiley & Sons and soon will be published in Chinese.
Jones traveled to Asia, Europe and around the United States in 2009 as she researched the book. It's neither an authorized corporate biography or an expose, but is a balanced, journalistic look at a company that pioneered the direct selling industry and has been spreading around the world as a global selling phenomenon.
Jones is finishing up her next book, a biography of the character actor and world champion rodeo rider Ben Johnson, who co-starred with John Wayne in many of director John Ford's Westerns and who won an Academy Award for best supporting actor for his role as Sam the Lion in The Last Picture Show.
