I have a big announcement, my darlings.  Back in April I told you that a new biography was in the works for Carl “Alfalfa” Switzer of Our Gang fame.  In late June, plans for the book were off and I pulled all support from the project in early July.

No other full-length biographies on the little boy with a cowlick who won the hearts of so many little girls the world over have been released as far as I know, so this was something that many were looking forward to.  If you were disappointed by the news that the project has been scrapped, then you will be happy to know that one of Carl Switzer’s cousins, Zachary D. Switzer, is planning a series of e-books on the Switzer legacy.

Here is what he says about the project:

I’m going to be releasing a Switzer legacy e-book on January 21, 2014 to coincide with Alfie’s 55th anniversary of his death! After that, I plan to release 4 more e-books prior to August 7, 2014, his birthday! These 4 e-books will have 360 haiku and 45 full-length poems each! All e-books (including the Legacy) will be set at $4.99 each e-book! One last thing, if these e-books sell 5,000,000+ on December 1, 2014, I’m going to be buying and designing a limited edition of 500 t-shirts! Each t-shirt will be personally signed by me!

These e-books will be released on Kindle through Amazon.com, so keep your eye out for them, my babies!

And thank you, Zachary, for keeping Alfie’s legacy alive and well!

      Thanks for dropping by Kerry! It’s disappointing that things with the bio turned out the way they did, but it’s grand news that one of Alfie’s family members is releasing this, so it makes it more personal.
