Despite all those decades on radio and TV (5!) and all the crazy crap I had to do for Stations to promote the show, it was always my least favorite part of the job. Idealistically, I believed the audience would come and grow "organically" if the show was good enough. Saying how great it was seemed more egotistical and less attractive.
Turns out, the shows did quite ratings-wise, thank you. Because the Station spent thousands on TV production and giveaways? Or because, from day to day, the show was just that good? Listeners would just have to work that out for themselves, if so inclined.
Now comes this book, Watercolor Memories, The Story of Lauren. The title alone should be sufficient to reveal this isn't another political screed. As noted on the back cover:
It's that old high school love story told anew: Boy meets Girl. Boy loses Girl. Boy finds Girl. But this time, it takes 15 years, two proms, college, marriage, divorce, kids, careers, over 10,000 miles, a chess-playing cop and some strange guy with a beard. Even then, the ending is a surprise and a shock. Or maybe it isn't.
So far, all 3 or 4 people who have read it say "It's got a pretty cover".
Take a look. There's a sample page on the Amazon site. Who knows? You may get hooked enough to read all of it! If you do, when you've finished please post your unvarnished thoughts on the Amazon page. The more comments, the more chances I have of having it made into a movie!
