Writers' Secret Tapes Revealed!

Maybe it's just Carrie Prejean's title, Still Standing, being so close to my novel, Standing Still-- but I am wondering if all writers must now consider releasing a sex tape in order to get publicity. This has always worked for actresses, why not writers?

Can't you just see John Irving wearing only boxing gloves? Or maybe witnessing Jennifer Weiner actually being Good In Bed? Not sure this tactic would work for my book tho. Given the topic of Standing Still, a tape of having a panic attack in lingerie would be more appropriate. (And only Woody Allen might find that titillating.)

Holiday Shopping with a Heart

Of course all independent bookstores have a heart . . .but Womrath's in Tenafly, New Jersey, is committed to helping others in a special way. Womrath's was started 60 years ago by World War II Vet Harry Kutik, who survived being shot 13 times overseas, only to come home and make a fresh start selling books. Today, his family continues the tradition and is celebrating the 60th Anniversary with The Liars Club Saturday from noon-3pm. The store is on 12 Washington Street in Tenafly, and we'll have great food, games and book and bookbag giveaways courtesy of the Liars Club. Best of all, a percentage of the profits will benefit disabled veterans. So you and your heart come out and do your holiday shopping!
