Giallo Meltdown: A Moviethon Diary
« on: 12 Jun 2015 - 12:37 »

I humbly submit my book to y'all.

I've been having giallo-themed moviethons since early 2008 and after some encouragement, I decided to turn them into a book. So over 13 chapters, I covered 215 films. The first 5 Giallo Meltdowns are up at my site but the other 8 chapters are all new content. Giallo Meltdown: A Moviethon Diary is by a fan for the fans and I'm super proud of this badboy.

Here's the link:

Here's me talking about finishing the book:

I ordered it, as well, and-although I haven't read it yet-am really digging what I've thumbed through so far. Funny, informative and very thorough with your choices.  :P

Okay, here's something embarrassing. This moment was recorded in the book. Unfortunately, it was also recorded on video. Watch my wife encourage me to take a huge shot of whiskey.

Ha, nice! About halfway through the book and loving it so far. Maybe we can do an interview to promote after I'm through, man? I'd love to chat and offer up some hits via my Examiner page. Cheers!

Hey there, y'all. Giallo Meltdown: A Moviethon Diary is now on sale for the holidays. It's currently $11 in the US or £7.56 or EUR 9,77 depending on where you're at Amazon-wise. So get it cheap now through Christmas!

And as an added bonus, I fixed a bunch of typos in the text and added the year beside each film reviewed in the book to make it more reference friendly! So... buy it again and give your used copy to a friend!
