Give her a break, she probably makes less than $2 for each copy sold.

Well, at the perhaps gigantically inflated numbers you are proposing, then that'd be $2 million, would it not?  Surely enough to set up a scholarship in Pam's name?  Maybe a Music Scholarship or Design.  Pam would like that.  Or am I misunderstanding the actual number of books sold?  You did say one million, didn't you?

Sure but you know managers, agents and publicists all take a chunk of that. It's the poor artists that get paid last, from what's left.

I am drearily familiar with that scenario.  But one million books - that ain't chump change.  If it's actually true.  Whereabouts did you get these figures, btw?

I read it about six months ago in the trade publication, The Bookseller.


It was unclear if that figure included the copies printed /distributed in French, Italian and Polish, or only reflected the English version(s).

And she can't afford to set up a scholarship in Pam's name?  A woman she never knew, but happily exploited?  She'd never get away with this if Pam was alive, that much I know.  Nor would she have written her book.

Maybe she just changed her mind? Women do that sometimes you know.


More bad news.

Sadly, both the T- shirt and the sweatshirt are currently sold out at Amazon.com

Happily though the stock on Susan Sontag shirts are plentiful!

I'm sure the t-shirt will look nice with your skank hat.  

Flakes change their mind and lie, be they men or women.

I never really ask people how they choose to spend the money they make. I figure they made it, it's their business what they do with it.


I did re read some portions of Butler's book last night, some cool quotes and funny stories about Jim by the some of the guys he attended college with in Florida.

Sally, you should consider writing your memoirs.

We are underway on that.

Did you check out this book by a former college pal of Jim's? http://www.amazon.com/jim-Jim-Morrison-Oth...5054&sr=1-1

http://www.worksbymichaellawrence.com/

Michael now lives on Hydra - one of the Greek Islands.

If Jim had lived, I think he would have wound up spending more time with Michael and his group of friends on Hydra.  

Here's the bust of Jim that Michael did, that so horrified Clara!

What did you think of Lawrence's book?  I haven't read it and wondered if there is enough content there to take interest.

M/  just read your post ( quite behind, ya know?) and I totally agree.  Never read the book but do not have to, I know 80%
of its contents by being in here.  REAL GOOD POST...Jacky

We differ. I read it and there are lies in that book. I would not view ADAD as accurate when it comes to Jim. The author misrepresents Jim and who he was.

Years ago, I borrowed the book from the liberry and read the whole thing.  It was a nicely crafted fairy tale......best decribed as a heady piece of a Harlequin Romance with the turbo charge of rock stars and their ladies.......taken as such, and nothing more, it was a "saccharin sweet" tale of Romeo and Juliet, but one with the male protagonist in leathers and his lady faire with a taste for dangerous side of life.......a regular Madame Bovary but with none of the talent of a Flaubert, I am afraid.
