Good Lord!! It kills me when I see these alleged “collectors’ editions” of my past books for sale online that not even I can afford to purchase! (However, I don’t need to afford them, because I’ve got copies of them all in storage, a mere 25 miles from here…)

My guess is that this is a signed edition and perhaps it even has the sticker on it that proclaims it a “Silver Medal Winner in the Independent Publishers Awards in New York City”, back in 2011, or somewhere around then.

If you’d like to save about twenty-one hundred and twenty dollars, you can buy a regular copy HERE, new, for $20.95; and if you’re an Amazon Prime member, I’m being alerted that the shipping is free! Send the book to me, here in the hinterlands, and I’ll sign it and place that coveted silver sticker on its cover for you!

I might even be willing to personalize the inscription for you, too, but I can’t guarantee anything as unpredictable as that, since that depends on my mood at any given moment. (Just kidding.) (I’ll probably write something about how you & I are really great friends and about how I couldn’t have made it this far without you!)

Anyway. I discovered this collector’s book while trying to get some cover images and links together, in anticipation of adding a couple of pages to this blog — pages where you can buy only my most recent books . Just about everything else from my illustrious 28-year career is out of print, although you can still find them all over Amazon…

Don’t be surprised if, one day soon, you come visit this blog and discover it looks slightly different! I’ve been reluctant to take that step. I’d been overseeing the original Marilyn’s Room since 1998 and it got exhausting.  Partly because I had 2000 -3000 visitors a day and it got exhausting.

I closed down the old Marilyn’s Room in 2014, after some changes were instigated at  GoDaddy that I wasn’t happy about, so I took that opportunity and went on a quiet, tiny, commercial blog-hiatus and have been happily tucked away here on WordPress since then. But I guess it’s time to branch out at least a little bit, enough so that readers who are new to Marilyn’s Room can at least find my current books.

Okay! Today’s that magical day wherein another episode of Riverdale unfolds before us at 9 PM Eastern time! I need to get a whole lot more writing accomplished before then, so I’m gonna scoot, gang! Have a happy, Lent-filled Thursday wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!

Thanks for visiting, gang. See ya!

No trick left unturned!! Gotta love it!
God only knows what’s next!!

What a glorious spring!

That vintage postcard image of the chick on the telephone was supposed to be my Easter post for you on Sunday, but everything got away from me since I had to be at church for 17 trillion hours that day, and now here it is, 4 days later…

Still, I thought it was a cute image, so I regale you with it, regardless!

Here’s a thought: When I woke this morning, at 5:02 a.m., I had the sudden realization that 34 years ago this very day, I got married for the first time, down at city hall in Manhattan. That’s really shocking, because I always feel like I’m still about 12 years old, so to think that I was even alive anywhere 34 years ago, let alone getting married to a man who has actually been dead now for 20 years, is simply something I cannot wrap my wee bonnie mind around!!

But enough of that! Things right here, right now, are really great so let’s just move forward.

Here’s something else that is really interesting. Amazon brought to my attention yesterday that quite a flurry of folks have been buying my eBooks here in the USA over the past 2 months. This is quite an exciting development, since I haven’t written any books since 2010 (I’ve been focusing on screenplays and teleplays since then).  But I do have several other book ideas on my back burner and it occurred to me that maybe I should set aside some real time and write something new!

To be honest, people all over the world are still buying my erotica (in the UK and Germany, mostly) and those are stories that have been recycled and recycled and recycled since the NINETIES, gang! I am astounded that people are not stupidly tired of them.  (Or perhaps they are, and they only keep buying them in the vain hope that the stories might have new endings or something by now…)

Well, I’m not planning on writing anymore erotica. Not that I think ministers shouldn’t write erotica if they feel moved to do so; it’s just that I wrote erotica for over 20 years. I wrote dark and bleak erotica, I wrote funny and upbeat erotica, I wrote romantic and sweet erotica, and I also wrote just plain literate award-winning erotica. I don’t feel like I have much left to stay in that department! I wanna write about other stuff! Yay!!

Still, it was a real thrill to see the boost in sales when I do absolutely ZERO to promote that stuff anymore.  (Plus, it was nice to see that Twilight of the Immortal is selling again, too, and that’s historical fiction — not erotic at all.) So I really want to thank any and all of you who are feeling compelled to purchase my fiction!! I really appreciate it.

Well, okay!

Today is just a gorgeous spring day and all I have to do today, besides homework, is argue with Time-Warner Cable on the telephone and most likely entreat them to close my account since I really stream everything on my iPad anyway, but we’ll see how it goes. I also plan on taking a walk later, to see what splendid & wondrous sights God has in store for my eyes today. I hope that wherever you are, something similar is going on!! (The “wondrous God on a gorgeous spring day” part, not the argument with Time Warner Cable.)  Thanks for visiting again, gang.  See ya real soon!
