According to Easton via a post on his facebook page,  “The Bowery Press just informed me “18 Straight Whiskeys” broke the one day sales record for their limited edition books.  At some point the mobile site even overloaded from the traffic (you can still order on a computer or laptop). As way of apology for the inconvenience we are extending the one day sale (10% off and free shipping) for two weeks. Thank you again and I hope you enjoy the book.”

Michael posted his appreciation relating, “THANK YOU TO ALL THE AMAZING FANS…”

You can now go directly to Michael’s website www.michaeleaston.com and also purchase this 2oth anniversary edition version. On the site if you order the book it says, “Collectors Edition Limited to 1,000 copies signed by the author. Twentieth anniversary edition of the acclaimed poetry collection plus thirty new poems.  First two printings sold out.”

Easton appeared on the season premiere of the podcast series, Soap Nation Live! back in August discussing his work and the edition of the new poems to the collection and the significance these writings have had in his life.

So, excited to see that Michael’s collection is doing so well? Will you purchase your own copy? Comment below.

When E! News visit the set of Y&R, Eric Braeden recounts the time Victor was feeding his wife Julia’s lover trapped in the basement dead rat; while Tracey Bregman (Lauren) reflects on why the viewers love the relationships and families in Genoa City.

In Salem and Days of our Lives, E! chats with series staples: Kristian Alfonso (Hope), then Deidre Hall (Marlena) and Drake Hogestyn (John).  Deidre reveals “possession will be on my tombstone” in terms of Marlena’s most infamous story of all-time when the good doc was possessed by Satan, while the beloved duo discuss why daytime is the best job to have.  Alfonso talks on the history of her character sharing: “I am going to hold near and dear to my heart the beginnings of Hope.

Teschner remembers: “Meghan Markle actually had her first speaking role in television on General Hospital.  She worked on the show in the background as a nurse, and we brought her up to read her to see if there was something there.”

Steve Burton chats on the craziest story he has ever played as Jason Morgan, revealing, “The one that always pops into my head is we had to go catch a monkey that had a virus, and I said to Laura (Wright) I think this is probably the end of my career today.”

The E! News special segment will show nostalgic clips from all the daytime dramas, including Luke and Laura’s wedding on GH, Marlena’s possession from DAYS, and some of Victor’s nefarious schemes from Y&R.
