I invite you to my Salon, a cyberworld version of European and Asian gatherings in centuries past, where artists and intellectuals met in the home of an encouraging and inspiring host. It is my good fortune to be acquainted with many fascinating people, whom I will be pleased to introduce to the reader for your education and entertainment.
Troy Blackford - Book Signing with Nobody There
I'm a Troy Blackford fan. Do you think he would visit Madame Perry's Salon?
Blackford is undoubtedly a good writer, and I appreciate people who can amuse themselves, just as he is doing here.
Lovers of poetry may know David Herrle for his book, Abyssinia, Jill Rush and his popular ezine SubtleTea. Now he's here to discuss his new book, which blends poetry with prose, Sharon Tate And The Daughters Of Joy. We're joined by a dear friend who actually introduced me to David's work years ago, poet and author Collin Kelley.
Kelley: In one sentence describe
this new collection. David Herrle: I
haven’t a short wind in my body, but, aside from being bubblegum
self-psychoanalysis, the book
is an aphoristic odyssey through aesthetics, art, beauty, sexuality, atrocity,
mortality and salvation contextualized by the grisly dooms of Queen Marie
Antoinette, Ripper-victim Mary Jane Kelly and Sharon Tate. Mme.
Perry: The reader is guided in an orderly
manner into some shocking, sharply defined and richly pigmented places from
Invocation to Sermon to Benediction. How did you determine the order of the
book? DH: Early on the book was intended to be about only Sharon Tate and th…

I met Josh Hoffner at Book Expo America 2013 where he barely had a chance to look up while signing copies of Killer Girlfriend, The Jodi Arias Story. Hoffner and co-author Brian Skoloff take us into the proceedings of Arias' trial for the murder of former lover Travis Alexander, and put some light on the lives of the couple before and during their relationship.
Hoffner is the Southwest News Editor for the Associated Press and an aspiring screenwriter. Brian Skoloff is an Associated Press reporter, writer, video journalist and author.
After learning that friend and author Angela Bradley followed the story daily until the trial ended, I invited her here to the salon to join the discussion. We only have Hoffner here today, but Skoloff felt that his co-author had done a magnificent job and he hopes we all enjoy the book.
Madame Perry: The
trial of Jodi Arias for the murder of Travis
Alexander was this decade’s O.J.Simpson trial. Were you surprised at the amount of attention it recei…
