I'm still having trouble with the new opening chapter.
When it's finished I shall start sending it out with the completed final chapter and some of the stories included in the book.
Right now though I am excited about the World Cup and I am taking a month off to watch.
It's only every 4 years, right?

What shall I do

I am thinking of opening up the blog to all my friends.
I think its about time.

That first Chapter

That first chapter is giving me fits. I'm still not sure how it should read. I thought I had it but now it seems not to be.
On the other hand the final chapter is now finished.

Title Ideas

My R & R Reality

The Day The Music "Biz" Died

Kind of takes on old song titles, but I'm not sure if it isn't to cheesy and maybe a rip off.
Get it?

Back from vacation

Sorry not to have posted in a while but have been on vacation out west. We started in Las Vegas and went to Sedona, The Grand Canyon and then to the tiny Antelope Canyon which blew our minds and then through Zion Canyon and back to Las Vegas and home.
I now need another vacation to recover!!
But I am reinvigorated and have figured out a new beginning to my book and a new ending.
I'm going to change the M O of the book and start with the end which will be the story of the End of the music industry as we know it.
The chapter is written and ready to go.
I shall post agian soon.

Dear Michael,

Thank you for letting us review the material for your book on famous figures in show business, which we read with great interest. Unfortunately, after careful consideration, we have decided that we are not the appropriate agents to represent your book.
You've done a wonderful job with this material, Michael, and you are certainly qualified to write this book. But unfortunately, it is very tough to sell projects like these in this difficult market. I'm sorry to say that, ultimately, I'm not completely convinced we would be able to place this project successfully.
We wish you the best of luck placing this successfully. Thank you, once again, for letting us consider it.
