Wondering if Towne Center Books still sells Tales from Swankville...?

Original post made by Student on Jun 8, 2014

I want to see what all the fuss was about a few years back... I unfortunately can't call the shop to see if they still sell it (phone troubles) so, I thought I should ask in the Town Square!

I'm sure they will order it for you. Great book,easy and funny. It would be a great fake reality show or movie. Fuss? It's non fiction.

I think it's been serialized and is called the "Pleasanton Weekly"

Towne Center Books will gladly order it for you. It's also available on Amazon or Barnes and Nobles. Great read. It's sold 3,000 copies I've heard. I am a book reviewer.

This is the author of the book or her friend or family asking this question hoping to become relevant since all the hype has been over for so long. Nice try. I'm not falling for it and I hope no one else does.

The book is great, you should really read it.

I liked the book. It really uncovered a lot of the truths about good ol' P-town. [Post partially removed because we at the Pleasanton Weekly need to look like we are doing our jobs]

The person who posted above as "Siah Freid" is someone posing as the author and doesn't even know how to correctly spell her last name. The post should be removed since it is clearly a fake.

No, I know the author of Swanksville is actually Siah Fried. However, I am the one and only great Siah Freid.
