Four promotional sites for my new novel are now live. You can learn about them here and find links below.

Blog: I have my own blog, covering a wide variety of topics, at http://scottstein.powerblogs.com.

Props: The book Drexel University Off the Record is the unauthorized guide for prospective students. On page 123 is its list of the “Ten Best Things About Drexel.” Number 9 is: “Scott Stein’s Humor & Comedy Writing class.” Now that’s some humor writing. I had the honor of being beaten out by “Cheap Basketball Tickets” and “Wireless Internet.” The book is in the Drexel bookstore (I mention this for informational and blatant self-promotional purposes only, and am not trying to sell their book.)
