Manny P. here…
Even though the publication date of Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History is September 8th, 2009… I actually received advanced copies on August 24th. I sold the first book to my friend Peter Parker later that day.
One year later, I’ve just sold my 1,103rd paperback! The Hollywood Mega chain of stores purchased almost 20 copies to put me over this magic number. Overall, the retail company has bought about 100 books in the last four months directly from me. The chain includes The Hollywoodland Experience, Souvenirs of Hollywood, and Hollywood Souvenirs, each along Hollywood Blvd. Tourists have flocked to the area and gobbled up the book (to my absolute delight).
Year TWO is set to begin in the life of my work. I can hardly wait to see what new adventures are in store for me!
Until next time> “never forget”
