As an author, there’s nothing like receiving a box ‘o books to end the gestation period. It is sort of like birth, but there will be no gender reveal.
Those books are already in the mail. A second printing has been ordered.
After six decades of writing journalistic nonfiction, I produced my first novel, Press Card, which is faction — fiction based on fact.
Here are four reasons you might want to buy it:
1- It is a fun read.
2- It is fast-paced, a sometimes bawdy story of the conflict between a hard-edged reporter and his editors, and others. It is filled with humor, colorful characters, sex, and suspense.
3- Its setting is a Philadelphia tabloid in the 1970s, when print was still king, before newspapers hit the skids. Press Card takes you behind the scenes, giving you the most revealing look at how newspapers really work, and how decisions are made, since All the President’s Men.
4- It’s how you can show your support for Stu in his possibly lengthy retirement.
There’s a lot more information on the website https://www.presscardthebook.com where you can order the book as an ebook ($9.99), or as a softcover from Amazon ($15). Autographed and/or inscribed copies must be ordered directly through me ($20). You can do that by check or PayPal on the website.
I look forward ro hearing from you.
