  1. If I read one more article about the infamous "Kristen" being "at the center of the Spitzer sex scandal" (in today's Globe) or "the woman who brought Spitzer down",' I will turn in my DVD of "Pretty Woman." This young woman was not Spitzer's "partner, " as Mehegan writes, but rather an interchangeable part in the machine of Spiizer's costly sex addiction. As the transcript makes clear, he barely remembered their previous assignation, and Kristen knew the governor about as intimately. Where's the book? I don't think her story would fill her MySpace page.

  1. How does an independently published local author get a book reviewed by the powers that be at Boston Globe/Boston.com? I had a book published in 1988 that was roundly ignored by the Globe (letters never answered, review copies not acknowledged). Now I have a new book, A JOLLY GOOD FELLOW (Good Harbor Press) about a kidnapping that takes place in Boston. Official publication date is September 15, and I would like to have this book reviewed in the Boston Globe and on Boston.com, and being of sound mind and body, I am available for Q and A, interviews, etc. What's the secret, besides sending review copies and keeping fingers crossed?
