10286573_300x300Check out Blue Smoke: Intimate Disclosures in Poetry & Prose (Outskirts Press, $17.95), a book by Craig A. Combs, who was a close buddy of mine until I moved away after third grade. I went looking for him and we re-connected over mis-remembered memories and our divergent paths in life. Well, not so divergent after all: We both just put out memoirs!

In his book, he reproduces some of the letters he sent me as a kid, which I, of course, saved faithfully because I'm warped like that.

Let me know how you like his book: Get it here or here.

With A Bullet: EM20 Featured By BILLBOARD! Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2015-11-21 at 2.24.06 PM

Anyone who's read my blog for a long while, or who has read my humorous memoir Starf*cker, will know how special it is to me to be the subject of a Billboard feature.

Keith Caulfield—who appears in Encyclopedia Madonnica 20—graciously interviewed me on the topic of the book's release. He says, helpfully:

Stumped on what to get the Madonna fan in your life for the holidays? How about the 581-page, 4-pound Madonna bible Encyclopedia Madonnica? The massive tome was written by Madonna expert Matthew Rettenmund and covers everything in Madonna’s world from A (the first entry is Abdul, Paula) through Z (zits -- yes, really).

Get your copy today through me, at Amazon (it's not really out of stock; you can still order and it comes quickly), at BN.com, at Marc Jacobs' Bookmarc (400 Bleecker St., NYC, NY) or anywhere else you usually buy books.

Read Keith's profile of me and my book at Billboard here. I'm over the moon about this one.

Another great review of Encyclopedia Madonnica 20, this time from paper[less] tiger. I'm so excited for all the nice buzz. The holidays should provide a good sales bump; after all, what better gift to give your Madonna-loving pals?

EM20 Book-Signing Event @ Rockbar! Comments (0)

*IMG_2910Two nights ago, I was honored to be the special guest at DJ JENE's regular Madonnathon at Rockbar (185 Christopher, though it was more like 1985!), where I was set up with a table and chair in order to hawk my Encyclopedia Madonnica 20 to the Madonna-loving masses.

Yes, an actual book-signing event!

*IMG_2768Copying Madonna for all I'm worth

I hate book-signing events. They're usually tense affairs during which 2% of the people you've invited actually show up, often spread out over a two-hour period. In my opinion, a book-signing event should only happen if the author is famous, or the subject matter is intensely headline-grabbing. I mean, I've sat through a couple o' white-knuckled moments at signings.

*IMG_2778I know, we should just get married already. But he can do better.

This was totally different! My great friends Jason and Greg helped me drag 14 copies of my $65 book (on sale for $50 at Rockbar), plus my cover blow-up, to the location, where a captive audience of Madonna fanatics steadily bought up every copy I had! I was truly impressed that people bought that many. I even sold 2 out of 3 Starf*cker books.

*IMG_2921Greg heroically took most of the photos you see on this page, with Jason doing some of the others.

It was a lot of fun meeting and greeting old pals like Frank, Angel, Michele, and more, plus meeting a few for the first time, like sexy Liam from Australia, sexy Joe from New Yawk, sexy ... oh, you know where this is going.

*IMG_2936I only sold books to attractive people.

*IMG_2943Michele snapped up my last copy!

*IMG_2949Boy Culture reader Chad came from San Francisco! (Okay, not specifically for me. But yay for coincidence!)

*IMG_2800Frankly speaking with Frank

One guy asked for a kiss with his book, which I gave—only to get tongue without warning. It's okay, though, my mono was almost gone.

Kidding aside, it was really fun and a real ego-boost, even when the cute drunk told me Madonna was garbage compared to Bjork. (Off to write my Bjorkopedia.) And it ended with me doing muscle poses alongside Stephen Charles Lincoln of The Protein Bakery, which provided delicious cookies, something Madonna has not eaten since 1977.

*IMG_2964His sugar was definitely raw.

Thanks to Jeannie Buxo for making it happen, and happen right!

IMG_0005 starfuckerI love the Evan Gaffney-designed cover. The inside, I will leave up to you.

I know I'm doing a lot of self-promoting lately, but after 10 years (as of this coming Friday, gulp!) of blogging, giving it away for free, I need to hawk my wears a bit.

As high as I am on the success of Encyclopedia Madonnica 20, I do have another book out—Starf*cker is a (hopefully) funny memoir that attempts to chronicle my, and our, obsession with celebrity. I use my life experiences as a teen-mag editor, in porn, hounding Madonna and haunting autograph shows to make the point.

It's the most personal thing I've ever written, so I would appreciate your support. If you read and like it, please say so on Amazon!

You can buy Starf*cker here or here.
