This is a shameless plug to buy my book "Rigby's Roads" from

I would like to sell 1,578,731 copies of my book "Rigby's Roads" in the next two weeks so I can retire, grow my hair into a pony tail and write all day.

Providing my own marketing here, based on emails from my readers reasons why the book was important to them, I submit the following reasons.

Buy my book "Rigby's Roads" as a present for yourself or others if:

You want to read Tom Hank's next movie before he does.
You enjoy a great love story.

I could think of at least 50 other reasons to buy this powerful book, but none would be as persuasive as the ones you outline!

I had the great pleasure of reading this book cover to cover and must say that if everyone in life read this book, we MIGHT just get along better with each other.

I've made my list of 50 things and am still adding to it!

As for Ed's creative suggestion that you stand a better chance of growing body parts.....well not sure that would be on your list of 50 things, but he sure is a funny son of a gun, isn't he? LOL

I wish you only the best my friend.

You wrote a book, you gotta toot your own horn and promote it! It's only natural! Congrats on your book!
Reviewed by Ed Matlack 12/7/2004
All those reasons seem to be enough to buy yours or anyones book, an excellent plug, Mike...should have made it into poetic form, more people at the den seem to read the poems rather than the short stories, but I will plug it for 1.5 million and some change, I think you have a better chance of growing boobs and losing your manhood in the process...;) Ed
