"will you autograph it?"
the big jerk said no, but it wasn't entirely his fault so i'll let it slide,
when i got the package in the mail i didn't read it right away because well, i'm lazy and the novella wasn't on the internet (GASP!), and i actually would have to turn pages instead of scroll down?!
it took a nice sunny saturday afternoon on my deck for me to crack open #$@%ing Read ME! (yes, that's the title), and within less than fifteen minutes i was hooked.
i would stop reading after a really good funny line, look at my friends georgia peach and the klutz and said, "this book is so good, you guys have to read it, seriously he's really funny"
and when i say "he" i'm talking about the protagonist, brandon, because what's unique about this love story is that it's written from a male point of view, which frankly is pretty refreshing.
see the thing is, i'm not a book reviewer, i don't (or can't?) write pretty flowery words describing how wonderful something is so all i can say is this: it's a sweet, touching, honest, beautifully written, very funny and easy read - so go buy #$@%ing Read Me!
maybe he'll autograph yours...
you can download it or buy it in paperback right here.
oh, and in case you want to know a little something more about the book, how about i let peter dewolf describe it himself:
A romantic comedy....about cancer. It's that old "Boy meets girl. Boy gets girl. Girl gets life-threatening disease. Boy tries to make it better. Boy screws up A LOT" story.
yeah, what he said, but funnier - and if you're anything like me you simply won't want the story to end.
now for some housekeeping.....
did you see that cleveland magazine FINALLY caved and gave me some props on their blog?
but, they aren't getting off the hook until i'm in the printed magazine - they have a great blog and all, but making the blog wasn't my goal.
so i'll still be crossing my fingers for an upcoming issue - OR they can just throw me a couple of free VIP tickets to the silver spoon awards party. i'd shut up then, (probably).
and now onto the video. i can't count how many of my blog friends all over the country sent me the link to the first 'hastily made cleveland tourism video' - it's nice to know that people think of me when they think of cleveland. looks like i've finally cornered the market.
well mike polk and company have decided to make a hastily made cleveland tourism video 2.0 - here's their 2nd attempt:
oh cleveland, i love you.
happy may day and happy weekend kids - stay safe out there.
