Ancil Lea launches new book

Conway Institute of Music

Editor’s Note: Just to be transparent, I (Todd) have been a part of the process of this book launch and have written a chapter in this book.

Veteran entrepreneur and technology consultant, Ancil Lea, has written a book about entrepreneurship and coffee. The book will be available on October 25th. The book is available from at

For the past three years, Ancil has been a frequent columnist for the healthcare section of Talk Business and Politics. In 2016, Ancil authored a small ebook, CYBER WAR: Securing Patient Health Information in Today’s Electronic Environment, which was endorsed and promoted by the Arkansas Medical Society.

Ancil loves coffee and working from coffee shops.

“I get so much work done and connect with so many people,” Lee said. “The coffee shop is my place of success!”

Lee started his first company in 1991, which he sold in the early 2000s. Recently, he was wildly successful as the executive director of the Regional Extension Center for the (ONC) Office of the National Coordinator under the HiTech Act for Arkansas. He has helped many “startup” companies succeed in gaining clients and market share by utilizing his experience. He is also very active in the “innovation movement.”

Lee and his team will hold a book launch party on Wednesday, October 25th, from 6:00 to 7:30 PM at Blue Sail Coffee in downtown Conway.

COMMON GROUNDS: An Entrepreneurial Guide to the Coffee Shop Office is available in paperback for $9.99 and as an ebook for $4.99.

You can learn more about the book and sign up for updates on the official landing page.
