I forgot to tell everyone two weeks ago that my book has been published and is available. As an indirect tie-in to Dancing With The Stars, “Dancing in the Stars: Carroll Webster, International Dance Luminary of Vaudeville and Hollywood” gives a better understanding of the difficulties vaudevillians constantly faced. It contrasts the beauty of dance inside performance venues and Hollywood against the ugly desperation of the Great Depression and World War II. It begins with a handsome and talented eighteen-year-old orphan who longs for a vaudevillian dance career. He has a real chance at stardom if he can survive America’s grueling dance marathons in the 1930s. Accompanied by his attractive dance partner Diane, Carroll makes friends on the marathon floor with future stars Red Skelton and Tony Martin. Before the decade is out, Tony Martin makes a movie with Fred Astaire and introduces him and Carroll. Diane wants to be more than friends with Carroll, but giving in to that temptation could ruin their partnership and Carroll’s chance at happiness and a family with Mary, who could become the love of his life. A tale of one man’s quest for fame and romance through the dark days of the Great Depression and World War II, “Dancing in the Stars” is Carroll Webster’s true search for what really matters.

Otherwise, let’s keep rooting on our favorites on DWTS, which will run two more weeks before the season ends. My votes are for Rumer and Riker to win. Who’s getting yours? Any idea which celebs will be on the fall season?
