Sonny Sez! Just Released

More Shameless Self Promotion.

My next book, as editor (and manager and gofer), has just been released by Wayne State University Press.

"SONNY SEZ! Legends, Yarns, and Downright Truths" is a collection of 100 fascinating stories, 77 drawings, and 31 track Audio CD. You can reach each of the stories about the strange, the unusual, the fascinating and silly - in less than 1 minute.

The stories were written by local television and radio personality Sonny Eliot, with drawings by Draper Hill, retired political caricaturist from the Detroit News. You can read more about our book, Sonny's interesting stories, see a couple of samples of Draper's wonderful drawings, and even hear a sample of the Audio CD I produced that is included in the book at You can also buy it there too....even an autographed copy.

If you're in S.E. Michigan, you are also invited to two book signings for Sonny and Draper. The first will feature not only Sonny and Sonny Sez! but five other great books coming out this fall from WSU Press:
--- "Amos Walker's DETROIT" by Loren D. Estleman, photos by Monte Nagler
-- "Connecting the Dots: Tyree Guyton's Heidelberg Project"
-- "Life with Mae: A Detroit Family Memoir" by Neal Shine
-- "American City: Detroit Architecture, 1845-2005" by Robert Sharoff, photos by William Zbaren, and
-- "Talking Shops: Detroiot Commercial Folk Art" photos by David Clements.
