Manny P. here…

smashwords logo   Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History is now an eBook.  My work can be purchased for use with a KINDLE, with a NOOK,  or with any eReader on the market. Smashwords will be the primary distributor. It’s a brand new chapter in the journey of my paperback.

   Here’s the SmashWords link with all the information and for your purchasing pleasure:


   Meanwhile, endless possibilities are compelling. The Associated Press recently reported:

eBook sales jumped and surpassed purchases of hardcovers and mass market paperbacks, according to a new survey. The Association of American Publishers   reported that E-sales more than doubled, from $32.4 million in January, 2010 to $69.9 million in January, 2011.

Not all AAP members participated, but the survey includes results from Random House, Simon & Schuster, and other leading publishers. According to Carolyn Reidy, President and CEO of Simon & Schuster:

 “eBooks were approximately 8 to 9 percent of the general trade market at the end of 2010, and it’s expected to reach 12 to 15 percent of the market this year… The new numbers pretty much reflect reality.”

   I appeal to readers who find the printed book a quaint thing of the past (personally I don’t), and check out the next wave of our literary future. Whether you own a KINDLE, a NOOK, or any of the many eReaders available, I invite you to explore Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History, and make it a part of your personal virtual library.


Tehama County Library Red Bluff   Along the banks of the Sacramento River, near Redding, CA, lies the Red Bluff branch of the Tehama Public Library. This is the newest branch to carry Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History.

   The community is well known for the Red Bluff Round-Up, one of California’s largest rodeos. The Red Bluff’s Little League team was the runner-up in the 1974 Little League World Series. Among the famous folks who are from the Red Bluff area:  Tom Hanks and Leo Gorcey, one of the Dead End Kids. In fact, these wise-cracking boys will be featured in my next book in the Forgotten Hollywood-series.

   I welcome the 51st library to carry my paperback.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
