Meet Julie, and get a SIGNED BOOK + TECH TALK

You know the best way to get an autographed copy of Julie's book: via the website. No inflated dealer prices. Delivery right to the front door or bat cave. BUT...if you are in or near Los Angeles or Pasadena, here's good news: You can meet Julie in person. And, naturally, get your book personalized.

Julie will be signing:

SUNDAY Oct 2nd, 3:30pm.
West Hollywood Park Open Book Pavillion. You'll meet lots of other authors there too, including Dyan Cannon, so you can get your hands on a years' worth of fine reading:

WEDNESDAY Oct. 5th, 7pm.
Julie's tasty book is in the soup: Book Soup, 8818 West Sunset Boulevard.

SATURDAY, Oct. 15th 7pm-9pm.
Test out your Halloween Catwoman outfit as you slink over to the Santa Monica Library, 601 Santa Monica Blvd.

SATURDAY, Nov 12th 5pm
Vrrooom over to Vroman's Bookstore, 395 East Colorado Blvd, Pasadena.

AND...discussing her book on the Tech Talk podcast, Julie reveals her plans for even more literary efforts. A show aimed at nerds, and hosted by a terse, flat-voiced woman who seems to be channeling Jack Webb from his grave, the topics Julie handles range from how she prepared for her role as Rhoda the Robot to whether Julie enjoys working on a computer.

Next Year: Julie's Karmic Book

Following "The Misadventures of Adam West," here comes "The Secret Lives of Julie Newmar," coming to your favorite comic book emporium in February 2012.

Created by the legendary team of Mehrlich and Shapiro, the adventures will have Julie suit-up in a variation of her Catwoman costume and do battle with "Dr. Vertigo." I'm not sure what super powers she has, but I think forcing the guy to walk up a steep staircase would do him in.

Dr. Vertigo apparently will be causing evil throughout different eras, with Julie chasing him down the corridors of time. But not involving a time tunnel...that was Lee Meriwether's schtick. So after our conscientious Catwoman explained life on Earth today, she's now explaining life in the past and future.

The comic book art will affectionately swipe iconic poses Julie's struck, with the cover copying a famous Bernard of Hollywood photo. And yes, watch for the Stupefyin' Jones super-hip hip-joint angle. And no, despite its name, Blue Water Comics is not a division of Bowl Fresh Blue Tab Toilet Bowl Cleaner. Although if you do read your comics while sitting on the john, blue water below couldn't hurt.

So follow the action from the beginning, when the lady who has had a rose named after her, suddenly gets drafted (literally, out of her pastoral garden) and into the secret headquarters of "Hour Glass." "Hour Glass" is run by a scientist who has a chip on his shoulder...which he'll implant into Julie. As if Julie needs implants. As if she doesn't already have a better than hourglass figure!
