Big news

Things are moving faster now.  I have finished reading page proofs and returned them with corrections to the publisher.

A neighborhood friend is working with us to plan a FRONT-YARD, TENT-SHADED, Y'ALL COME BOOK SIGNING here at our house sometime in early June. The idea came fron another friend as an alternative to having an indoor book launch party.

The next step is the cover and Jim will be working with the designer on that.  Jim has  created a great graphic for the front cover. Can't wait for you to see it.

One more thing, the publisher is creating a book trailer. Very exciting.  More later.

Now for the fun stuff.

DO YOU REMEMBER the TV series “The Naked City?” In the 1958-59 it was a half-hour show which only ran one season. In 1960 it came back as an hour show which aired on ABC at 10:00 p.m. on Wednesday night. It was a crime drama filmed in NYC which introduced newcomers such as Alan Alda, Ed Asner, Robert Duvall, Diahann Carroll, Dustin Hoffman, Sandy Dennis and Suzanne Pleschette.

DID YOU KNOW the idea dor a crime drama based in New York city originated with Alfred Hitchcock? He never followed through and eventually Producer Mark Hellinger hired Jules Dassin towork on the filme.  They released "Naked City" in 1948. It stqared Barry Fitzgerald, Howard Duff, Dorothy Hart and Dan Taylor. Ten years later, it was the inspiration for the TV series called "The Naked City."
