Manny P. here…
Upon reflection, I’m proud of the path Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History has taken in the year since it was first published. With 1120 books purchased Internationally; a blog that has chronicled its journey; and the promise of a second printing, and a follow-up paperback; I’m excited for the upcoming year.
Thanks to all who decided to purchase my book. I hope you have enjoyed its contents and subject matter. Looking back, I won two National awards; I got my work added in prestigious libraries throughout the U.S.; and I met some rather interesting folks including the grandson of one my subjects (Richard Carradine), and the brother of a former President (Ed Nixon). Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History has exceeded all of my expectations for success.
My realistic goal is to visit MOOSEHEART - outside of Chicago – in 2011 to provide them with a donation of $2500. This sum is my heartfelt contribution to the promise of education for children in need.
My next paperback will include well-researched stories about the lives of such great actors as Frank Morgan, Lon Chaney, Jr., Peter Lorre, Sydney Greenstreet, Cesar Romero, Alan Hale, Sr., among others, and their part in our collective American History.
Of course, you can still find Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History on Amazon, at selected Southern California Borders and Barnes & Noble bookshops, the Hollywood Mega chain of stores, Chevalier’s, William’s Book Store, and the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills. The saga continues…
Until next time> “never forget“
