Zoom World.

 One of the problems we have now that we live in Zoom world, is the flagrant self-promotion that exists by its participants.  Much the way it is used on Facebook.  People who appear on talk shows have at least one. sometimes two copies of their new books on prominent display on their bookshelves behind them.  Over the last two days, two reporters on MSNBC appeared, one on "Morning Joe" and the other on Joy Reid's show were interviewed in their homes with their Emmy's in prominent display on their bookshelves.  I know we have much bigger problems than this, but it all seems rather cheeky to me.  And the hosts of these shows never call them out on this.  They all get a pass.  I guess I'm just a little too cranky these days.  Don't mind me.

Speaking of self-promotion, My books, "Show Runner" and "Show Runner 2" can be found at the Amazon Kindle Store, along with newer ones, "The Man Is Dead", and "Report Cards".They are all compilations of blog entries have since been removed from the blog. So this is the only way you can find them.You can search by typing in my name, Cindy Williams, Laverne and Shirley, The Odd Couple, or Happy Days.

Check them out.
You don't need a Kindle machine to download them.
Just get the free app from Kindle, and they can be downloaded to an IPhone, IPad, or Blackberry.
The paperbacks, "Mark Rothman's Essays" and my new novel, "I'm Not Garbo" are not e-books.
But they are available for people without Kindle.
I have many readings and signings lined up for those, and the thing about Kindle is you can't sign one.
If you'd like one of the paperbacks, personally autographed, contact me at macchus999@aol.com.
And now, there's my reading of my screenplay of my unmade "Laverne and Shirley" movie on "YouTube"

About Me

Hi. I am, according to my Wikipedia entry,(which I did not create) a noted television writer, playwright, screenwriter, and occasional actor. You can Google me or go to the IMDB to get my credits, and you can come here to get my opinions on things, which I'll try to express eloquently. Hopefully I'll succeed. You can also e-mail me at macchus999@aol.com. Perhaps my biggest claim to fame is being responsible, for about six months in 1975, while Head Writer for the "Happy Days" TV series, for Americans saying to each other "Sit on it."
