This is a great book to read. I found myself bursting Into laughter with such shock factor of James transparency. I appreciate he can laugh and find humor with his OCD. As I do believe everyone has their own struggles. – Amazon Review
Jim Bailey is a Gulliver walking the nooks and crannies of a beach community simply trying to sell his books, do his research, and find a port where he can write the Next Great American Novel and Worldwide TV Series – only to meet the weird, the wacky, and the odd – person or situation which may or may not get him back in time to switch his car to the other side of the street before the cops tow away his sleeping quarters. And the Power of O.C.D.
Cannot Be Denied: Jim Bailey’s diary reveals A Don Quixote of a Writer-Against-All-Odds: An artist on foot, sleeping in his car, struggling to push his great work of written art up the steep hill of Competition, Access, and The Marketplace.
Or: Tilting at sun worshipers, book-readers, the homeless, agents, or producers he meets on his daily rounds of beaches, coffee shops and the rear aisle of bookstores he sneaks into trying to sell his books. Great characters. A funny read. One day he’s meeting a movie star in Malibu that purchases his book and the next minute he’s fighting off a psychotic street person.
Jim is obsessed with getting a bestselling book that leads to a movie option. If you like quirky and fun books you will enjoy Jim’s journey from one book store to another. Never leaving unless he cajoles someone to buy one of his books.
Hahahahah I love it!!! Wow, can’t believe how many celebrities this man has met, worked with, or just interacted with! I a pretty judgemental reader and omg I was laughing so hard throughout this book. This is akin to some of the great adventure stories of the Golden Era of Hollywood! Wouldn’t be surprised if they made a movie about this book someday! Definitely worth a read at the very least. Will certainly be recommending to my friends! -Amazon Review

If you like quirky psychology true stories check out my book. I met Bob Dylan and Pierce Brosnan who bought my book and many other famous Celebs along with the wild and unpredictable homeless and street people during my encounters while plugging my book. All while living in my car. Ended up with a best seller and a movie option.
