This past school year, my daughter had to write an essay personifying an object or place.  She chose Jumbo’s, the restaurant run by her grandfather, Bobby Flam. Jumbo’s closed one year ago today.  But its best legacy is what my daughter writes about here.  Grandpa Bobby, you’re a hero.  Thanks for building a civil rights landmark.  And also, for all the free Bobby Burgers over the years.

Today is the day, when our new children's book, I AM LUCILLE BALL, is released into the universe.

To my surprise, some have asked: Why Lucy? So let me explain: I wrote this book because I wanted my daughter to finally have a female entertainment hero who wasn't famous just because she was thin and known only for her looks. Lucy is different than everyone else. She's funny, driven, and the first woman to run a major movie studio (producing Star Trek and Mission: Impossible). Her success came from her drive -- and because she so perfectly wasn't like everyone else. Plus she taught me, throughout my own childhood, that humor can take on anything. I wanted my daughter to learn that.

To buy the book, please go here:
http://bradmeltzer.com/book/i-am-lucille-ball/buy-i-am-lucille-ball/

But in terms of Lucy and Ethel crazy ideas, here's my most Lucy and Ethel-ish. Share this book with someone who's different. Share it with little girls and boys, as well as big girls and boys. Show them that it's not just okay to be different...it's SPECTACULAR to be different.

Indeed, for Facebook, feel free to post something like:
Today is the day I AM LUCILLE BALL is being published. Share this book with someone who's different. Show them that it's not just okay to be different...it's SPECTACULAR to be different. You can buy it here: http://bradmeltzer.com/book/i-am-lucille-ball/buy-i-am-lucille-ball/

And for Twitter:
Today, I AM LUCILLE BALL is out. It's not just okay to be different...it's SPECTACULAR. #ILoveLucy Buy it here: http://bradmeltzer.com/book/i-am-lucille-ball/buy-i-am-lucille-ball/

Sending love and thanks to you. See you at the chocolate factory!

One To Grow On:  Did you know Lucille Ball was the first woman to run a major Hollywood Studio? Or that she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom? Lucille Ball was a funny, driven, and groundbreaking comedienne who didn’t let anything stand in her way. If your kids don’t know Lucy, well...pick up a copy of I AM LUCILLE BALL and show them Lucy’s life, legacy, and how she changed Hollywood forever. After all, #OrdinaryPeopleChangeTheWorld. For more books about real heroes and to see more Lucy, check out http://ordinarypeoplechangetheworld.com/lucille_ball.php.

Finally saw the film Ex Machina. How come none of you told me it was so awesome? Still haunting me. Second, this is a picture of Nixon's meal on his worst day at the White House.

That's the book I'm starting tonight. I picked up The President's Shadow at the library not knowing it was part of a series. Time to start at the beginning!

We’ve gotten so many requests asking, so if you want an autographed copy of I AM LUCILLE BALL (or any of the kids books, or The President’s Shadow), call my local bookstore -- Books & Books at 305-442-4408. They have signed copies and can ship it to you. If you call before 2pm ET today (Thursday), I can even personalize it for you, your kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, baby gift, etc.
Thanks for supporting them -- and me. In honor of Lucy, a huge Babaluuu to you all!
Also, look what arrived at my house today. First copy.

Okay, the tour is finally done, and I can honestly say this has been the fastest month of my life. So first and most important, I just want to say thank you for supporting the new book, inviting friends and family to the signings, and telling everyone that The President's Shadow was the book to read this summer (I can't tell you how many people on tour told me, "My friend X sent me").

Every book launch is a family affair, so thank you for being part of our family. I'll never ever EVER be able to properly express what your kindness means to me.

And yes, I AM LUCILLE BALL comes out on Tuesday. But rather than just push another book on you, I thought the best way to say thanks would be to give you the very first look at it. So here you go...click here: http://bradmeltzer.com/brads-favorite-pages-from-i-am-lucille-ball/ for a sneak peek of one of my favorite pages from I AM LUCILLE BALL (and don't worry -- when we do the chocolate conveyor belt scene, the book goes to black-and-white). :)

Love to you -- and thanks to you.

Brad
