Favorite excerpts read from “How to Find Yourself…”

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

Yes! Actual readers reading their favorite excerpts from my humor book, “How to Find Yourself (or a reasonable facsimile)”. Listen to the best bits read out loud!

This is the last in the series. Many kind brave foolhardy friends and actors and the mainly naive gave of their time and talent for a number of videos wherein they were being wonderful. What I had hoped and planned and aimed was amusing stuff. Just to see. Anyone buying anything was a big extra. But to the people who starred & made these videos worthwhile–double cheek kisses.
I’m not big on selling. It’s why I’m where I am today. Where that is will remain undisclosed for now. But I like fooling around in a serious way. And these videos were part of this, to use a horribly fashionable word, “Process”. And I’m trying things out as I launch this publishing company. What works best, what works less. What I feel like doing, what I’m capable of doing.

Oh and that’s it for How To for now. I’ve been writing and posting a lot recently; will tomorrow, too. Things popping, but I will have some series playwriting to do between now and the beginning of 2010. Rehearsals begin in a month and I got…no, that’s for tomorrow (after this evening’s final auditions).

To the point here! Watch the video here.

Leave comments–here or YouTube–pass this around! Rate it five stars and hug me online!

You can buy this book on Amazon, any Amazon, in your neck of the woods/world. Go to, type in my name in the book section. It’ll pop up, along with ANOTHER book which I’ll be hitting some lucky souls over the eyeballs soon, too soon.

Meanwhile, want to read the intro to this book? Well, here’s some. In fact, I’m going to be posting very regularly, probably every Monday (but that’s not a promise–I’m putting this together) maybe both audio and text chapter samples…so if you want to know when these are posted please CLICK THE RSS feed on my Blog page so you’ll be automatically warned, and warmed, and wonderful. (Man, organizing you readers is like herding cats, but someone’s got to do it….)

Anyway. Sample chapter to read. Start of How to Find Yourself….. …. Beginning of How to Find Yourself (or a reasonable facsimile)

Various links to Amazon & the How To book….

Zombies say Buy It

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

Just happened to meet some zombies lately, as one does. Seems they all read my book and had become fan zombies. They insisted I video them. They wanted to tell you, the mass reading public, that you need to buy this book. This has nothing to do with me. It’s a zombie thing, and as anyone who has ever dealt with them, you do what zombies tell you to do.

Otherwise they bite you, and you go weird, and your social life takes a dive. So there’s this video of zombies telling you what have to do, one after another. And if you don’t get blunt message by the end of this video, then you’ll never get it. Or you’re just a dork-zombie yourself.

And if you want to buy it — always be closing, thus spake David Mamet — just click over to Amazon, any Amazon (USA, UK, France, Germany, Canada, Japan…you listening to me in Japan?) type in my name or the name of this book…oh, “How to Find Yourself (or a reasonable facsimile)” and there it will be. Then Buy It.

Or go to Book Dispository (.com or do the above, & they send the book for free.

Now get your eyes & ears to the Zombies. It’s barely a minute long. Link: Zombies say Buy It
