I can sum it up in one word: Girls.

OK, maybe a few more words than that. No one’s going to publish a 34-word essay. I could sum it up by saying the difference between penning a song and penning a novel is the same as picking your nose versus blowing it. Although…

Hey, cats and chicks of all ages—thanks so much for following my Oldies Connection blog. Didja know I’ve got other oldies-related blogs as well? While this one, Laura’s Oldies Connection, focuses on images and videos from the 1940s through 1970s (vintage ads, singers, groups, commercials, performances, etc.), Laura’s Oldies Room complements it with pix/vids of those same oldies artists from 1980 to the present day, as well as automatically generated posts from my Wordpress blog. In addition, I’ve got Laura’s Oldies Concert Pix, which features photos of performing artists personally taken by me. Please check out my other blogs and follow them if you like what you see!

The D.A.’s Forever by Laura Pinto

My Kindle novel, The D.A.’s Forever, is just 99¢ through April 30, 2014. If you like stories of friendship and nostalgia (with a generous helping of raunchiness tossed in—what else would you expect from four former greasers from New Jersey?), head on over to Amazon & grab it at this special low price (or learn more about the book here). Frankie, Denny, Tony and Eddy will thank you!

THE D.A.'s FOREVER by Laura Pinto

Time for a bit of shameless self-promotion…

Not only do I have a bunch of oldies-related websites, I’m also an author! My first novel, The D.A.’s Forever, is available exclusively on Amazon Kindle and is just 99¢ through April 30, 2014. Two points of clarification—no, the book has nothing to do with the legal profession; and, no, a Kindle device is not needed to read Kindle books. More details…
