Greetings!  Do you really, really
want an autographed copy?  
I can send you one, but I'll warn
ya... the shipping and handling
cost is way crazy.  

Is my autograph really worth it?  
Probably not. Cheaper to order
from Amazon.

Click on the buttons at the top of
this page to order from them.
Peace, y'all!
Hey, Winnipeg!

Elvis on Wheels

There's another book on the horizon!
"Elvis on Wheels' is the second of a series  
about Elvis Tribute Artists and their fans.  

Pete and his reluctant chauffeur, Dolly, take
a rollicking trip across Canada, stopping for
performances, to enjoy the scenery, and
spend time with his fans.

That was the
plan.  

What really happens is a stumbling, bumbling
adventure in futility and frustration,
experiencing the trials full time RV'ers could
get into, but oh! What fun!

Watch for 'Elvis on Wheels', coming this
summer!
Elvis in Wonderland
by Marya Kalen

Buddy has only been in the Elvis
Tribute Artist game for a couple
of years and he's having the time
of his life!  He would love to quit
his day job and take on
entertaining full time. He truly
believes he's got what it takes:
Talent, top-notch costumes, a
beautiful girlfriend, a great car.
So what's stopping him?

'Elvis in Wonderland' explores
this mysterious world of
sideburns and glitter.  From the
creation of his suits and the
constant practicing of his act to
the bizarre backstage antics at the
competitions and shows; you'll
get a insider's look at this
fascinating society.

There are many characters in this
fantasy world: Blazing stars who
bring Elvis to life with amazing
glitz, glamour and charisma. The
slightly less talented Elvii who
try, with all their hearts, to
honour the King.

There are Elvii with gimmicks:
Elvis on stilts, Emerald Elvis and
Tap dancing Elvis.  There are
Female Elvii; baby Elvii; even
dog Elvii!  You'll meet 'em all!

“It’s a strange, wonderful
community to be involved in.  
Some of these guys take their
roles way too seriously, while
others are just in it for the fun!  
Every level of involvement takes
a lot of hard work and
dedication, whether you be an
ETA, an assistant or a fan.  
Hopefully the reader will come
away with a new perspective,
and perhaps new respect, for
these entertainers in Jumpsuits.”
