Hi! I was traveling by and noticed that you have Robert Leleux's The Memoirs of a Beautiful Boy as your May bonus book. I just finished an interview with Robert. We don't give away any of the important details in the book. The interview, however, will give you and your readers a pretty good idea for the hilarity that's in store. Here's a link to my interview with Robert Leleux just a few days ago.
