Life takes us many places. It's a box of chocolates and a Hansel and Gretal trail of candy wrappers. I have filmed as an actor in The Happening, Invincible, The Lovely Bones, The Bounty Hunter, The Greek American, Bazookas, Limitless, TV's Its Always Sunny in Philly, Outlaw, New York, The Warrior, The Nail, Game Change, Cold Case, & commercial work includes The Philadelphia Eagles, Septa, Coors, Turbo Tax & Carnival Cruises. Freudian Slips spotlights irony in short story format.

Knock Knock. Who is there? Free Publicity

My printing company, JustBooks, asked me to forward a copy of my autobiography Stop and Smell the Silk Roses. JustBooks was contacted by a newspaper agency who wants to do a grassroots story on self-published books. I have been told my book will be considered for the story. The piece will run simultaneously in 24 different newspapers in the country. Keep your fingers crossed for free publicity thrown my way. It would be a long shot for my book to get selected but when opportunity knocks, I am the ears-a-plenty guy pressing a glass up to the front door. The book went out in first class mail today.

That is so cool!

Lets just hope the newspapers are not The Star and the National Inquirer and The Weekly World News...

Rooting for the underdog is one of my better hobbies. Thanks.

I will remember not only my friends but their pseudonyms too.

Bad press only happens at dry cleaners.

Patience my dear Chi. When I mailed your book to Italy they told me it would arrive in four weeks. You might have time to take in another novel or two.
