To my surprise, my book -- Four Word Film Reviews -- is now for sale on Amazon.com!
http://www.amazon.com/Four-Word-Film-Reviews-Clews/dp/1440505659/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1279588395&sr=8-1 (http://www.amazon.com/Four-Word-Film-Reviews-Clews/dp/1440505659/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1279588395&sr=8-1)

The book doesn't hit bookstores until Aug. 18 so I'm surprised to see it for sale on-line. I just had my box of author copies sent to my house last week and I held my very first book in my hands for the first time last week. (*SIGH*)

Here is a free sample of my book -- it's funny reviews and summaries of films in four words or less. Here are some examples:
“Apes understand. I didn’t.” 2001: A Space Odyssey
“This Alamo ironically forgettable.” The Alamo (2004)
“Orwell’s notorious P.I.G.” Animal Farm (1954)
"From Beer to Fraternity.” Animal House (1978)
“Goo: bad and ugly.” The Blob (1958)

“Frost makes Dick shrivel.” Frost/Nixon (2008)
“Kubrick studies marine life.” Full Metal Jacket (1987)
“Starving for attention.” Gandhi (1982)

The book only costs $10. If you liked these reviews, there are about 1,500 more in the book so please consider buying it.

This is an amazing day for me -- after all these years, I finally have a book on the market!
