Watch out Paris Hilton! I've become a bigger media whore than you.

After getting my book in Entertainment Weekly and the New York Post, I've done some local media in my hometown of Kingston, Ontario.

I had a story published in Kingston This Week, a weekly newspaper in my hometown: http://www.kingstonthisweek.com/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=2720259

I was also interviewed this morning on the radio on K-Rock, a Kingston classic rock station. If you want to listen to it, Try this link: http://pmd.krock1057.ca/Mornings/fourwordfilmreviews.mp2

My book officially hit store shelves this week (although I spotted it on the shelves of a few local bookstores last week). I was a daily newspaper reporter for 13 years, so I think all my PR skills are going to pay off in the next few months when I go into a full-time promotion mode. Wish my luck!

Congratulations on your successful media whoredom. May your book sales reflect all the early publicity. :)

Well, considering the nature of your book, you should be a media whore! ;)

And a columnist from the Seattle Times gave the book a brief mention:

Quick takes
Some sports offerings from the new book Four Word Film Reviews:
• Field of Dreams: "Everybody loves Ray's mound."
• Kung Fu Panda: "Fists of Furry."
• Rocky Balboa: "Aging Bull."
• Gladiator: "Aussie and chariot."


It's only a small part of a column but I'll take it!
