Hey Red,

So we all want to know, When and Where will you touch down in America? (Ok you don't have to be exact) but we want some details for the imagination to work with.

Fingers crossed that all goes smoothly on the exit out.

Ayesha Tuabin said...

Very happy for you. Inshallah the journey won't be too bad.

Hope you are planning to keep blogging. I would like to keep reading about the Coolred and family saga!

Anonymous--When Coolred appears on Oprah with her featured book,- it will all be true and she will have the documents to prove it--especially since Oprah will want to wave them around.

BTW James Frey originally submitted his manuscript as a novel. The publishing company rightfully realizing it wasn't well enough written to be published as such, and wanting to capitalize on the trend for autobiography, had him publish it as a memoir instead. As a naive to the publishing world, first-time author, he went along with it and was burned twice, once by the discovery of the fictionality of his "memoir" and then by Oprah and the publisher who made sure he was the sole scapegoat, and sacrificed in the public square after appropriate humiliation.
