Good Grief! My memoir, The Devil Made Me Do It, is in a PUBLIC LIBRARY.

Be Still My Heart

Bill Cronauer of Wilkes Barre, PA emailed me a request for a signed copy.

He says he enjoyed the copy he bought at Amazon so much that he donated it to the Library where he works.

Now wants a signed copy for his very own.

What a glorious library: How can such institutions be in such danger of disappearing? That prospect frightens me even more than the threatened demise of the US Postal Service.

Here's a link to Bill's domain -  the reference department:

Here's the spot for movies, theater, books, etc. that are connected (dialogue, setting, etc)  to Wilkes-Barre, PA or Scranton, PA 

Here is Bills personal blog:

AND AND AND...Another bibliophile, VICTOR OLLIVER, has posted a review:
His entry was last Wednesday, so you have to scroll down past his review of Wyn Ellis' Marquess of Bath Lord of Love review - No. don't scroll past it. Read it. I've just ordered the book. It looks yummy.

I guess it's official. I'm a published author. .
Now I really DO have to get to work on Goin' Down in Flames - the book that answers all the questions The Devil Made Me Do It raised. I need a few more hours in each day.

Thanks to blogger who pointed out that my comments wasn't working right. I think it is now, so feel free to express yourself.

Wonderful! I think it should be in every public library. Finally actually *reading* my copy. (Bought it as soon as it came out. Road to hell being paved with good intentions and all, so to speak...) Loving every word.

I just received the copy I ordered from Amazon, yesterday, and I'm already past 100 pages. Great read!

I especially enjoyed reading the blow-by-blow (no pun intended) of the shooting of "Miss Jones", as it was the first pornographic movie I ever saw. I was 16 at the time (my friend and I used fake IDs to get in) and I thought you were the hottest woman alive. The final scene, with Damiano as The Lost Soul, and you unable to get off, was tremendously powerful - and haunting, especially to a 16-year-old Catholic boy :-)

I look forward to reading the remainder of the book. I'm sure it will be entertaining as all hell. God bless!
