Something different for Valentine's Day ...


"Park yourself in a comfy chair, suspend disbelief and get ready for some delicious entertainment delivered by Ellen Meister’s Farewell, Dorothy Parker." 
Cleveland Plain Dealer

If your sweetheart is a reader, I hope you'll consider buying one of these signed, collectible edition copies of Farewell, Dorothy Parker. I personally autographed every single copy of the trade paperback edition first printing. So no matter where you purchase it from--your local bookstore or online--you are guaranteed to get a signed book with a gold sticker on the cover.

Note that when you order it online there won't be any indication that it's autographed. But I promise you, from the bottom of my cramped fingers, that it is. Here are links for ordering this trade paperback online:

Farewell, Dorothy Parker
When it comes to movie reviews, critic Violet Epps is a powerhouse voice. But that’s only because she’s learned to channel her literary hero Dorothy Parker, the most celebrated and scathing wit of the twentieth century. If only Violet could summon that kind of strength in her personal life.

Violet visits the Algonquin Hotel in an attempt to find inspiration from the hallowed dining room, where Dorothy Parker and so many other famous writers of the 1920s traded barbs, but she gets more than she bargained for when Parker’s feisty spirit rematerializes. An irreverent ghost with problems of her own—including a refusal to cross over to the afterlife—Mrs. Parker helps Violet face her fears, becoming in turn mentor and tormentor…and ultimately, friend.
