Yep, been traveling like crazy, but I'm back home, still working on putting my office together--but I'm going to catch up on everything I can these next nine days while I'm home! Hey, that will be the longest stretch I'm home in a long, long, long time!

For now, here's some great news! Thanks to everyone for making my first book a huge, huge, huge success. Spoke to my publisher today, book is "pre-selling" in record numbers! The first print edition is almost sold out!

They're ordering a second print run based on pre-orders! The best news, books are shipping out this week to the distributors who'll ship them to the book stores--prediction is it's on shelf late next week--but if you'd like, you can also go to the front of Glamour1.com and click the link to order off this site! I'm excited and I've seen the cover, it was worth getting it right!

Now if you have a book and plan on attending the International Glamour, Beauty & the Nude workshops for July in either Chicago, Philadelphia and Los Angeles, yep, providing nothing changes, April 2006 Playboy Playmate Holley A. Dorrough will be attending as a special guest model! So if you bring your April 2006 Playboy along with my book (she's on the cover) you'll get two signatures! Holley is doing these workshops as a special favor to help promote the book, so bring a copy! If you want to go to any of those workshops, better hurry, all are almost sold-out already, just fyi.

Book two is almost completed too! I'll let you know more on that. If you're a model and are interested in being included, I have a total of four more books in production, let me know. If you are a photographer who attended my previous workshops, for some books you are eligible to enter images for publication. Book one has about 25 photographs from various photographers included besides the 125 plus images of my own.

More soon as we're working like crazy on a laundry list of things for Glamour1 and the contests, so bear with us, soon to be caught up on many things, thanks, rg, sends!

Congratulations, Rolando.
I confess that I am not one of those who pre-ordered the book, but I am happy that it turned out well for you.

Congratz,

I was about to post for an update. I ordered the book way back in February, and I was getting the feeling that I was being skipped. When I read sold out, and I didn't get one, wow...I think I must be one of the first people to even have ordered it...lol

Must be time to preorder the second one...lol

Wish I could attend the shoot, but alas, I cannot...can you possibly send out the autographs on celephane tape and i can just apply them to the book when I finally get it...

hehe

later Rolondo

Aha, guess that explains why Amazon still hasn't sent my book out yet - hoping I get it before I see you and Holley in Chicago!

Good...thought I was the only one. I placed my order the first day that I saw the link on G1 (actually maybe the old GG), and have sort of wondered if Amazon just said "screw you".

Showing just how out of touch they are...they still list my "shipping estimate" as June 1-12. Someone at Amazon is asleep at the wheel...

Congratulations and glad to hear things are going so well.

It's also evidently back ordered when the order is placed through a local bookstore. I got a statement showing I still have unused credit at my favorite bookstore so maybe I just put in a standing order to get each of the new books!

Word from the publisher today was all first-run books are sold-out! Second print run is on the way, will arrive next week then out to distributors! Any books on-hand anywhere at this point are the last ones from the first print-run still left in the channels. Thanks everyone for your support, book two is now at Amherst for editing minus a few pics we still have to get them. Thanks, rg sends!

You mentioned a Los Angeles GB&N, but I cannot find that on the schedule; do you have a date set?
