On Saturday I had my first book signing ever at the LA Book Fair. It was only 30 minutes of “fame” in that Book Soup stall on the campus of UCLA, but we sold out the 50 copies of Cagney & Lacey…and Me that the book store ordered, and could well have done more if anyone (including me) had the requisite amount of confidence to predict such a success.
We have 200 more books awaiting signature at the Monday night event at the Beverly Hills branch of the Museum of Television and Radio. If we sell out there, I may start to get a trifle big headed…that is, until someone shows me the sales figures on The Da Vinci Code.
I hope by now you have ordered your copy of the book through Amazon.com or BarnesandNoble.com. I am told you can wander over to your favorite book store, but why do that? 99.9% of them will not stock the book (oh yee of little faith) and will only do for you what you can do for yourself and order it with their computer.
For those folks who are wondering, the DVD box of the Menopause Years quartet of films (the only films of Cagney & Lacey that I truly control) will be released shortly. We also have found a stash of the crew sweatshirts from our production of these reunion films and will be offering them for sale as well.
A hard bound gift addition of the book…with some extra features that the current book does not have…will be available by (hopefully) early summer. So, all kinds of good stuff, and all thanks to the continuing interest of so many of you. One couple came all the way from London to attend the Book Fair and the Museum tribute. Another twosome flew down from Vancouver to get their books autographed and to be part of the Television and Radio festivities. It is all very gratifying and, once again, I thank you.
