What a way to end 2011! While on the brink of releasing my new book - Son of Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History, I’m about 200 shy of selling out the First Edition of my original work. With few sales signs of slowing down, I can happily proclaim: 2300 copies of Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History are officially in the hands of readers… WORLD WIDE.
An upcoming story will have details regarding the release of my second paperback in the series. I have firm commitments from a number of bookstores and gift shops to enthusiastically carry my new sequel. I’ll let you in on the details the minute I have books in place. This way, you won’t make a needless trip. I promise to write a big splashy blog post with all the bells and whistles!
For the moment, I’m basking in the afterglow of my latest sales report. Larry Edmunds Bookshop is the location putting me at that magic number. A big THANKS to the iconic cinematic literary store along Hollywood Blvd. Kindle ebook sales also helped!
Forgotten Hollywood is about to embark on a new journey in 2012! I’m thrilled about this impending adventure.
Cheetah, the chimpanzee who appeared in several Tarzan films, has died, according to claims made by an animal facility. Popular during the Studio Era, the chimp had a three-year career, between 1932-34. The estate of Johnny Weissmuller sent the monkey to Suncoast Primate Sanctuary in Palm Harbor in 1960, where he lived in retirement.
Film historians and primate scholars are dubious over the identity and age of the beast. No records exist, since a fire at the facility in 1995 destroyed all paperwork. Cheetah passed away from kidney failure on Christmas Eve at age 80.
HAPPY NEW YEAR
Until next time> “never forget”
