Paperback Writer

....ok, Hardback Writer. But seriously, I don't remember that song.

Now people, I've begged. I've pleaded. I've threatened. For g-d's sakes, I've even attempted subtlety....which is sooooo not my style. And so far, Garkawe is the only person I know who has pre-ordered a copy of Rebecca's book.

Have I not given you people 5 years of my life that you can't give a friend of a friend $16.47 (via amazon)? C'mon people - where's the love??

Nice to Come Home To is released tomorrow. Do not disappoint me folks. Don't disappoint her or the folks at Riverhead Press (I almost typed 'Riverdale', but I think that's where Archie and Jughead went to school).

I don't think there will be Harry Potter lines at midnight, but that's no reason you can't get a jump on the crowds. You're gonna need it for the beach anyway and why not be the first on your block to say 'oh yeah - I read it before it was popular!!'re just getting to it now?'

I know I'm impartial - I'm not only her friend, but it could be argued that I am the inspiration for a character in the book (eat your heart out Chef Bob!).

I've read a few iterations of the book, but they stopped coming my way when I mentioned I was saving them so I could eBay them later when she was famous. I can't really blame her. Now I have my galley copy and a signed version of the hardcover. Smell ME!

Rebecca will be the first to admit that Nice to Come Home To might be considered a chick-lit piece, but at least it's a good one. My blog audience is the perfect one for this book. I don't think I have a lot of women reading this thing (well, Kris and Dity.......and Becca, of course), but I do have the gay men. And this is a story of lost love, finding oneself, dresses, cats and a man who may or may not be me. You'll just have to buy and read it to find out. .....and no cheating by getting it from the liberry.

You can find a really nice article on the author here and a fun audio interview with her right here. She doesn't mention me once, but I'll forgive it. ...........this time.

Song by: the Beatles (say like Margaret Meehan, as played by Catherine O'Hara)
