Fall/Winter Book Signing Events


We are pleased to announce two newly added book presentation/signing events in Southern Ontario. We look forward to meeting discriminating readers who are fans of biographies, true crime, retro and erotica, as "Inches" has something for everyone! (Stay tuned for the posting of a third date soon.)


Chapters Book Store, located at the Erin Mills Power Center, 3050 Vega Blvd., in Mississauga (the GTA), will be hosting a "meet and greet" in-store signing event on Saturday November 28th from 11:00am-7:00pm. This special occasion will enable interested readers to chat with us about our work and learn what had motivated us to choose the legendary adult film superstar as the subject for our first collaborative effort.

Please call: (905) 820-9910 for details. Chapters - Erin Mills


Chapters Book Store, located at the Meadowland Regional Centre, 737 Golf Links Road, Unit 1, Ancaster, has invited Jennifer and I to present and sign copies of our biography on Saturday February 13th between 1-3:00pm. This will be another opportunity for people living in the Golden Horseshoe area to attend a special presentation of "A Life Measured in Inches".

For more information, please call: (905) 648-7155 Chapters - Ancaster

** Note: Due to unexpected circumstances, the "Writer's Rally", that was scheduled for Sunday October 25th at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington, Ontario, has been postponed to a later date that will be announced.

John Holmes: A Life Measured in Inches - Excerpts

While Jennifer and I plan and prepare for fall and winter book-related happenings, please visit the link below to our website in order to read excerpts from six chapters of our book. Soon, we will be adding additional excerpts, including some of the Wonderland/Laurel Canyon segments of the book, with a few other surprises in store.

The above photo is a still from a loop, circa 1970. John and his longtime girlfriend, auburn- haired Sandy Dempsey, appeared in several loops and features together. John also appeared in loops with girlfriend, Gilda Grant, during the early 1970s. Next to Ms. Dempsey, John and Seka were frequent on-screen partners.
