My News for the Week:

There is a good chance I could be working with a well-known but retired wrestler on a tell-all biography; we’ve been in discussion about such a project over the last few days; however, since a few issues need checking into before anything is confirmed or scrapped. If the official project doesn’t come to fruition, plans for an unofficial book are in the process and new publishers sought when and if either project is completed.

Many thanks to the Blak Rayne blog for featuring Klass Act June 28.

I am scheduled to appear on WebbWeaver Books’ show July 23, where I will be interviewed and doing a reading from Klass Act.
