CONFESSIONS Available on Kindle Soon

The paperback version of CONFESSIONS OF A MOVIE ADDICT, my amusing life-at-the-movies memoir, was released in 2001 -– and I’m happy to celebrate this tenth anniversary by making it available soon on Amazon’s Kindle. Because it was so much fun to write this book, I’m pleased when reviewers and fans have fun reading it. For example, Warren Epstein, who was a film critic for The Gazette in Colorado Springs back then, shocked me -– but made me laugh -- with his reaction below.

I hate Betty Jo Tucker. As a fellow Colorado film critic, I’ve loathed her for years. Sure, you can call it professional jealousy. But see it from my perspective. We all go to a film festival. Most of us get an article or two out of it. Betty Jo gets an adventure. She ends up being served dinner by the filmmakers, for heaven’s sake! Well, now I have to put up with her new book, CONFESSIONS OF A MOVIE ADDICT, and, believe me, it’s about as Betty Jo as it can be. She takes us behind the scenes of the entertainment industry, sharing her favorite celebrity interviews and revealing her personal connections and passions for the movies. As if we care. (OK, the mishap at her first porn film had me laughing. But just a little.) You’ll probably read this book and fall in love with Betty Jo. See if I care.

And film historian James Colt Harrison boosted my spirits when he wrote, “If Oscars were given out for the funniest book of the year, CONFESSIONS OF A MOVIE ADDICT would win hands down.”

Comedian Nancy Lombardo also perked me up considerably by declaring, “I love this book. Someone should buy the rights and make a movie out of it. It’s that good!”

More details about the 10th Anniversary release of CONFESSIONS OF A MOVIE ADDICT on Kindle are coming soon.

  • I agree with Nancy, this would make a wonderful movie.
    btw, I especially enjoy the photo of you with Angelina Jolie when you talked with her about Hackers.
