Your quest to discover how my life as a gigolo began is laid bare for you as arrayed across the sheets intriguingly bound between two covers. Is that a double entendre? Oh yes, it most indubitably is. The personal memoirs I've recounted for you have occurred in my life in the exact manner I've described herein, and in those extremely famous words of Mr. Robert Leroy Ripley, you may choose to "believe it or not." On the other hand, do you dare expose yourself to my overtly provocative contents? While you ponder that decision let me reveal that it was my mother whom envisioned my life should be lived as a gigolo and that my personal perception's always been that living such a carefree lifestyle could lead to a fascinatingly splendid life, one filled with fun, adventure, excitement, and more. Fortunately for all my perception has proven to be spot on. When I began tapping on the keys of my laptop, my entire thought process was to simply record several of my life's more interesting experiences in order to share them with my closest friends, which I'm now unveiling to you. I've chosen to record some due to their humorous outcomes and others for their overall uniqueness. Then there are those which are so absolutely implausible that I just had to include them as well so that everyone could express their 100 percent utter disbelief to me, which always makes me laugh. If the memoirs comprising these early years of my youth and beyond serves to inspire your own sensual imagination to roam free, as I perceive they shall, then my self-imposed task of placing these words on paper has been a successful use of my time and I thank you in advance for allowing this book and its contents to catch your interest. As a test, I've chosen the first chapter of this book to act as a type of veritable showcase to immediately measure your interest level. If you're indeed fascinated in the type of life experience it contains, then by all means continue on. However, know in advance that should you proceed further, I guarantee your eyes will be opened wide and your imagination will find new avenues to explore, along with places to visit and experiences to revel in, therefore, please enjoy your journey traveling along the meandering, mesmerizing paths that compose these earliest memoirs of my life. It's now time for you to journey forth, and if you're of age, feel free to get yourself completely comfortable, perhaps ensconced in front of a blazing fire with a glass of wine at hand and enjoy your time alone with me. So take a deep breath, settle in, and now, begin...Salût!

From the Author:

First of all I want to thank you for allowing this book and its contents to catch your interest. As a novice essayist I was counseled that for authenticity's sake it's always best to write on a subject that I know well and, in this case, one I know intimately well. When I began tapping on the keys of my laptop, putting a select few of my fondest memoirs into written form, my entire thought process was to simply record several of my life's more interesting experiences in order to be able to share them with my closest friends by way of private e-mail. I chose to write some due to their humorous outcomes and others for their overall uniqueness. Then there are those which are so absolutely implausible that I just had to record them as well so that everyone could express their 100 percent utter disbelief to me, which always makes me laugh. As I wrote and reviewed my writings my mind continued to recall additional details concerning each incident, event and experience, making numerous revisions necessary. All while extending the reading length of each individual memoirs recollection itself of course. Once the page length of my memoirs increased to double digits and beyond my next step was to take my new overly extended versions, which I'd saved on a 4-gigabyte flash drive, down to my local office supply store to have them printed out and then physically mail them out to a few of my friends to entertain them in printed form via the U.S. Postal Service "snail mail." At first that was completely acceptable to me but not very cost effective for I was sending out single chapters as I completed them, to the tune of one every week or so. Then interest grew. Once I hit the 200-page mark I placed all the chapters together into a book format and modified, then re-modified them into the current reading style and format you're perusing here today. I'm still in the process of writing my memoirs and thus the pages continue to rack up. I'm sure that eventually I'll grow tired of sitting in front of my laptop. But not yet. At this point I find that writing out my life's more intriguing escapades is a very pleasant way to while away my time. Oh, one note concerning my writing style. You'll find that the choice of words and phrases I've utilized in my chapters reflects the various levels of sophistication that ruled my emotions at those exact times in my life, such as during my younger years my unbridled boyish enthusiasm ran rampant, and as I matured in age, so did my vocabulary, mannerisms, appearance, and more. You'll also discover that I interchange verb tenses at will to allow you to be in a position to simply read, review, or become inserted in the events I'm describing. That's totally intentional. If you choose to read on from here, then I guarantee your eyes will be opened wide and your imagination will find new avenues to explore, along with places to visit and experiences to revel in, and if that's indeed the case, then please enjoy your journey traveling along the meandering, mesmerizing paths that compose these early memoirs of my life. I certainly have.

In addition to the above, which consists of my book's Foreward, please know that I'm also providing the first 1000 readers that send their books to me for an author's signature and inscription with a registered book number and customized bookmarker that details out all three book titles that will entail my initial trilogy. You may reach me for details by several methods, however, email will be the best option for you, which is:  LordHalliday@aol.com

Once again, thank you for your devoted readership, I look forward to keeping you in books for several years to come.

From the Inside Flap:

This book shall start at the beginning and serves to introduce to you how my very unique life and lifestyle as a gigolo evolved from a single whimsical thought. I invite you to review the following excerpts from this book's first chapter...
 
* * * * *
 
At the highly impassioned age of twenty-two she'd secured a marriage to an extremely prominent, exceedingly wealthy banker who had never been passionate toward any other person in his life, ever. Her husband was then, and still is, highly obsessive about acquiring things and remains to this day 100 percent totally oblivious of how barren his heart is. Prior to marrying him his youthful future wife-to-be imagined him capable of changing and so she sallied forth into a stilted, one-sided relationship with him steadfast and self-confident in her delusion that her copious feminine wiles would be adroit enough to transform this immensely wealthy patriarch with feelings for only his egotistical being into the doting and loving husband she'd been dreaming of and fantasizing about her entire life. Sadly, her plans for him never even came close to attaining full fruition. His bestowment of designer clothing, fine jewelry, new luxury vehicles and more had been lavished upon her to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars spent. Yet not a single one of those items ever made up to her for his inability to enflame even a tiny spark of the true passion and sensual arousal that she'd always craved and had never experienced in her life. Until me.

If you so choose, it's now time for you to journey forth, and if you're of age, feel free to get yourself completely comfortable, perhaps ensconced in front of a blazing fire with a glass of wine at hand and enjoy your time alone with me. So take a deep breath, settle in, and now, begin...Salût!
