The Newsletter:




Happy summertime to you! Summer Solstice is just a week away. What are your plans for the summer? I’m heading out on a book tour/adventure for most of the summer. Feel free to email me [email protected] to see if I’ll be coming to your town or check my Robert Cheeke Athlete Facebook Page for my tour schedule. That is the only place it will be posted. Off the top of my head, I’ll be heading to Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona next week, then over to Austin, Houston and Dallas, Texas and then east from there en route to Pennsylvania, over to DC, Ohio, back to DC then ending up in Wisconsin for a couple of weeks. From there I’ll hit up Chicago and head west likely traveling in the northern states and ending up in Oregon before returning home to Los Angeles 2-3 months from now. I’m piling Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness books and Vega into my Prius and I’m exploring the country Coast to Coast this summer. I imagine I’ll see many of you. I just got an email from Rip Esselstyn and he’s going to set me up with a talk and a potluck in Austin. Pumped!





As you know by now my book has been out for a couple of months and continues to do extremely well! I’m on my 4th printing already, which is amazing! Stores from Australia to Canada are carrying it, people in more than 30 countries have ordered from my website, and even A-list celebrities have ordered the book from my website, just like anyone else. As a result of the book success, I’ve had the opportunity to be interviewed by lots of media including mainstream magazines and various other publications including blogs, websites, radio, etc. It has been a great platform for me to talk about veganism, health, fitness, motivation, inspiration and animal rights topics.



Here are some of the recent interviews that you can read or listen to and I have 2 more coming up this week (Wed and Thur) and even more coming soon:



Chocolate-Covered Katie

Book Promo


I have another book promo incentive period going on now. I do these every once in a while when I need to boost sales in order to afford to print more books. Even with all the book sales it is still challenging to afford to print books for a variety of reasons. Many stores order on consignment; that is just the way they work. So they don’t pay anything for 30-90 days. My book has barely been out that long and since it’s a self published book, I put up money for books and then ship them off to stores and may not get anything back for a long time. I also try to print with as large of a quantity as I can afford to so it takes a lot of up front capital just to keep the book going. I’m in one of those periods now, attempting to afford my 4th print run so I’m offering a bunch of incentives. I’m so fortunate to have many companies donating products for give-aways as forms of advertising for them. Thank you to all of you who have already ordered! I’m sure you’re enjoying the book. The feedback has been absolutely amazing.


The promos going on this week are the following:


-When you order 2 books at a time from www.veganbodybuildingbook.com you get a Free DVD of Vegan Fitness Built Naturally, lots of Vega packets, some promo items from Bodybuilding.com like magnets, wrist bands and stickers, and various other small give-aways in the forms of coupons, other stickers, etc.


-When you order 3 books at a time from www.veganbodybuildingbook.com you get a $200 value gift package full of items from Vega, Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness, ProBar, Bodybuilding.com, and a variety of other free gifts which could include other DVDs, books, CDs, etc. They will be great prize packages that I know you’ll enjoy.


Order from www.veganbodybuildingbook.com and if you do order 2 or 3 or more at a time, you’ll get some extra special bonuses as my way of staying thanks. And remember, every order comes with some extras, so nobody ever gets left out.



Other projects friends are doing:


Forks Over Knives Documentary


Please check out this powerful new documentary about preventing and reversing disease, called Forks Over Knives. I am good friends with the producer and have seen this documentary at three private screenings so far and it’s phenomenal. It is commonly compared to Food Inc. but better, and different, of course. The documentary features Prof. T. Colin Campbell, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Rip Esselstyn, Mac Danzig, Dr. Neal Barnard, and many others. It is awesome! Check out the trailer at www.forksoverknives.com or directly on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPJbYAYzP04

Yeah, let's hang out. No plans or talks set up, but I really want to go back and visit. Maybe I'll get something set up soon. I'm doing it all on my own this time around. No PR team, not assistants, just me, my car, my books and some Vega and hitting the road.


I will have some stuff set up in Austin for sure, and likely Houston but I'm wide open for Dallas. Have any ideas?


Let me know! Will be great to see you again.
