Theodore Roosevelt – Lost Days Celebrity of the Day

Just try and take Teddy's favorite book. I dare you.

Teddy once wrote about Bigfoot in his book Wilderness Hunter so it just makes sense that he’s a fan of my Bigfoot tome Lost Days.  Here he’s pictured clutching a copy of the book like someone may come along and steal it at any moment.  I wanted to Photoshop this image, but Teddy himself requested that I use the original image.  Of course, he was carrying a big stick and speaking very softly when he made the request.

Book Tests Legendary Filmmakers Friendship; Spielberg vs. Scorsese – Lost Days Celebrities of the Day

Spielberg Fights Scorsese For Lost Days Film Rights

Steven Spielberg yanks a copy of Lost Days from Martin Scorsese and playfully declares “The film rights are mine, Marty.”  Scorsese was seen phoning his buddy Francis Ford Coppola immediately following this picture was taken and asking him if he could walk him through the “Making him an offer he can’t refuse” negotiation technique again.

I was asked what I thought about this development, but unfortunately, I was too busy testing the limits of Photoshop, and had no idea this was going on at the time.

I’m back, and I brought a new book trailer with me!

My last day of vacation is here, and I can’t tell you how much that sucks.  I had to find a reason to celebrate, so I made me one of them there book trailers for my new book Lost Days.  Here it is.  Let me know if you like it.  Don’t let me know if you hate it.  I’ve got enough insecurities.

My newer new author’s photo, not quite so chinny…

 

new author pic

Photo number 105 of the evening. This is my response to, "Look natural!"

…but something is clearly very fascinating to me out of frame.  The photo I posted yesterday (see below) was swiftly nixed, rebuked, torpedoed, iced, virtually torn to shreds, etc., and so forth and so on.  Apparently, I don’t know an unacceptable picture of me when I see it.

My new author’s photo is very chinny

authors photo

Raised eyebrow? Check. Scowl? Check. Square chin impression? Check.

I have no idea what I was thinking, so I can’t give you a reason for the dour expression.  Let’s hope I don’t have to shoot more pictures.  I hate it… oh, wait.  Now I know what I was thinking.  BTW – don’t forget to join the Lost Days Facebook Group to find out more about a couple of laptops I’m giving away, and maybe even see more chinny pictures of me.
