Becky's Tune

Until someone buys the movie or television rights to it, this is probably my last plug for Rebecca's novel, Nice to Come Home To.

Published last April, you folks have gotten dozens of hints from me to order the sucker for the 10 months prior to go-live. Some of you, I know have followed through. Thanks on that. She might thank you as well. Her manager, agent, publisher, publicist and accountant do.

For those of you hit hard by the economy - good news! Today, NTCHT comes out in paperback. It's kind of like the second coming. But with the book, you have opportunities for paper cuts, which are like stigmata.

Don't let Katie Holmes on the cover scare you. It's actually a cute cover and it's not really Mrs. Cruise. Tom probably wouldn't let her read the novel as it has a therapist as a character, and we all know what he thinks about psychiatry.

Yes, the novel is probably geared more towards women, but no reason men wouldn't like it. I did. (hush - all of you!) The possibility that the bestest character is based on me has nothing whatsoever to do with my opinion on the book. Honest. Kind of. Not really. Ok, it's all about me. Or should be. I was jonesing for her to call it McKay & Friends, but she never seriously entertained the idea. And by 'seriously', I mean 'at all'.

As it is, I don't think I factor into her new novel, which she is currently writing.

But until that (no known working title) is completed, pick up the paperback of Nice to Come Home To. It's approaching spring break and beach season (well.....kind of soon) and it's a good read for those times. But at least buy it now. Her publisher will thank you.
