Oakdale Confidential:
An As The World Turns Novel

Wednesday, April 26, 2006


Last Saturday was the ATWT Fan Club Luncheon in New York City. Over 550 fans came to hang out for a couple of hours with their favorite stars. B&N also had a table there to sell copies of “Oakdale Confidential.”

I don’t know exactly how many they sold (though they did seem to go through several cases), but I do know that it did this humble little ghost-writer’s heart good to see so many folks walking around clutching their copies and handing them to the actors to autograph. (For photos from a book signing Terri Colombino (Katie) and Helen Wagner (Nancy) did a few weeks ago, click here and here.)

And then, this Friday, is the Daytime Emmy Awards. Trent Dawson (Henry) is up for Best Supporting Actor, ATWT is up for Best Show and Best Writing. (For a complete list of ATWT and other show nominees, click here).

Copies of “Oakdale Confidential” will be in the presenters’ goodie-bags and we are still exploring other ways to promote this title during the broadcast.

Because writing the book is finite. Eventually, some editor will come and pry it out of your hands, heedless of your screams, “Wait! Wait! Just one more pass! I think I can make it better!”

Marketing the book, though, is eternal…

See ya’ at the Emmys!
