PT GOES ON BOOK TOUR
Guest Writer DJ Catter here bringing you the update on my friend PT and his book release. Taking a page from other successful ramp-ups including the Murrieta Best Buy opening back in ’95 on a Friday the 13th, PT announced the official release of Memoirs of Mr. Pete & Mary Jane Green as Doomsday, December 21st, 2012. However, like the old Best Buy, PT also had a ‘soft opening’. Announcing to a limited few that the book would be available on his late mother’s birthday, December 18th, the first sale from the pre-release release comes from ‘that girl’[hat in the air] in the photo.
Elyse Carmichael, the Temecula woman in the picture holding Memoirs ordered her copy on December 18th after her shift at Red Lobster. Promised a January 2nd delivery ["Bummer"], Elyse was surprised to receive her copy of Memoirs on Doomsday, 3 days later. The avid reader told me, "I have 55 pages of my current book, then I'll dive into [Memoirs of Mr. Pete & Mary Jane Green]."
Blowing into LA after the Prop 37 recount in Orange County, Santa Ana, PT emailed saying that he ‘attended the NORML Christmas potluck which was held at the JEMM magazine HQ on Hollywood Blvd.’ There he smoozed in an overflow crowd, presenting his book for their viewing at the meeting before the potluck was opened. It was at the dinner portion after the monthly meeting where PT met the group known as 420 Nurses, a ‘very lovely group of young women promoting the health side of cannabis’, he noted in the email.
Meanwhile the next scheduled book promo event is Lanny Swerdlow’s marijuana radio show for an interview with Lanny about Memoirs on January 7th and then to the NORML fund-raiser concert as a book vendor complete with a booth. PT says details are to follow in upcoming news after Christmas, but for now from both of us,
