Susan’s Promo Tales: More Reviews


Probably one of the best parts of this whole Do It Yourself thing is that I can take my time with soliciting reviews — and that a lot of you guys pop up and post reviews without any nudging from me. (Feel free to add your reviews to Amazon, Lulu (if you bought the book there), or any of the social book sites like GoodReads!)

Like my friend L^2. Have you met her yet? You should; she writes one of my favorite blogs, one I don’t comment on nearly enough anymore. If you use this link and check out her review of The Demo Tapes: Year 1, you’ll see why as soon as the page loads. Visuals, folks. Visuals. Trevor’s gone to the dogs!

And then there’s my friend CandieB. I wish I was a big enough enterprise to need her accounting skills, but then there’s that old adage about not mixing business with friendship. It didn’t stop her from raving about The Demo Tapes, though. Read what she has to say here.

One thing that’s been unanimous so far is the opinion that The Demo Tapes help make the outtakes I post here on the blog make better sense. A lot of you have commented that the timeline I’ve organized the pieces into gives you a much better, deeper appreciation of the guys and their personalities — and their relationships.

That’s why I’m eager to hear what my book club thinks of the book. As our meeting was winding down last week, one of the ladies leaned over and picked a copy of The Demo Tapes out of the cute little WWF bag I keep (and carry them around) in. That started a run on things and before I knew it, I’d sold four copies — and autographed them all. These women don’t read my blog unless I send them a link (which I usually only do when I’m blogging about a book we’ve read). So to hear what they’ll think… I’m eager.

After all, they can’t say anything more confounding or demoralizing than my mom did when she said, “I think I liked the introductions to each piece the best. They are so succinct, so warm.”

Gee, Mom. Thanks. Just what are you trying to tell me, there?


Anyway, check out the reviews. Let me know if you’ve posted any I haven’t seen yet, so I can add them to the cool reviews page I made. And if you’d like a closer gander at this book, use this link.

    Moms. Yup, I understand. Mine had a similarly confounding reaction to my recent book news.

    Anyhow, congrats on the wonderful reviews — they are well-deserved. People all over are digging Portable Trevor!

    Congrats on the reviews!! I always get apprehensive when I read reviews.

    Hey when my Mom read my first book she had to ask me what *cough* certain words meant and then asked me where I learned those “certain” things. 😉
