She was originally scheduled for Tuesday night, but she got late word that she will tape the show live on Thursday. The situation with Hurricane Isaac bumped McMartin for a few days.
McMartin has offered her dramatic book dealing with alcoholism, Understanding the Fall, on Studio City Patch, and online for free—donating it to people in recovery.
Last week, Patch reprinted the book over the week, () and it got Dr. Drew's attention. He invited her on his show to discuss it.
McMartin said she is shocked, and thrilled.
friends and family -- after over 11 years of making my book, by hand and donating it to people in recovery, in juvenile hall, in rehab, and just about anywhere else i can -- it is finally going to be available for purchase online!
last week i posted my book on my weekly studio city patch column and somehow it managed to get the attention of the producers of the Dr. Drew show on HLN. they loved it and have now asked me to be a guest LIVE tuesday night (8/28) on Dr. Drew's show!
needless to say this is an absolute dream come true. finally my little book can reach a broader audience and hopefully get in the hands of all those it might be of service to!
please tune in and watch me try not to fall on my face on live television and please spread the word about my book now being available for purchase. life is truly a mystery... xo
