Manny P. here…
It’s turning out to be the best week in the journey of the Forgotten Hollywood franchise:
~ MONDAY - Bill Airey, CEO of MOOSE Charities, Inc., called to thank me for the $2400 I donated to MOOSEHEART Child City and School in September. $1 of each 1st edition copy of Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History sold was earmarked to my official charity. This friendly phone chat put a real smile on my face.
~ WEDNESDAY - I celebrated my 55th birthday!
~ THURSDAY - Son of Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History went roaring past 500 in book sales; and then over 600 in sales (626)! Thanks to Danforth Distribution and their November report for this latest news.
~ FRIDAY - I received the official announcement in my email inbox from USA Book News that Son of Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History replicated the success from my earlier work at the 2009 National Best Book Awards:
USA BOOK NEWS

~ SUNDAY - I’m attending the Los Angeles Press Club: 5th Annual National Entertainment Journalism Awards gala at the Biltmore Hotel in Downtown, Los Angeles. My latest literary paperback and blog site are up for awards. A Finalist in two categories… I feel blessed as a scribe and journalist.
Like I said… (maybe) the finest week in the franchise history of Forgotten Hollywood…
Until next time> “never forget”
