A New Testimonial for my Book!

I am so very excited to announce that actor/singer Barry Williams has given my book, The Christmas TV Companion, a recommendation to be included on the back cover of the next printing. This is what he said:

“From my appearance as a child actor on Dragnet to A Very Brady Christmas to my more recent musical performance on The Wiggles, this book contains an amazing wealth of Christmas TV splendor.”

I write about his appearances in these Christmas programs in the book. Of course, he's also in the holiday episode "The Voice of Christmas" on the first season of The Brady Bunch.

This testimonial is just one of the many great things going on recently with my work. I'm working on a large promotion centered around "Christmas in July"--stay in touch for the official announcements and a few surprises. One thing for certain is that the publisher is planning a special sale of The Christmas TV Companion during the month of July. If you haven't gotten you're copy yet or are looking to get one for a friend, this might be a great opportunity for that.

My next book Tis the Season TV: The Encyclopedia of Christmas-themed Episodes, Specials and Made-for-TV Movies is being finalized for release this upcoming Fall by 1701 Press. This is the reference book you've always dreamed of--from Ab Fab to Ziggy's Gift--this ultimate guide to Christmas on television. It is the larger project from which the Christmas TV Companion was derived. I'm soooo excited about this book finally being released.

I'll be announcing more details about the next book and Christmas in July in the coming weeks.


  1. Good gracious, good golly, oh my! Congrats on all the wonderful news and yeah, ain't Barry Williams the coolest!

  2. How great! A Very Brady Christmas is a holiday special I just love, cheesy as it is.
