Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) December 5, 2005
Rick Springfield, the 80s pop star and actor who’s already making news by returning to his old part in TV’s General Hospital, is also inspiring an unlikely literary boom of books by fans turned authors.
”Helping Hens: Rooster Tales for Zachary”, a quirky collection of “Springfield-abilia” compiled by a diehard fan, recently became the fourth new Springfield-themed book to be published on Lulu (http://www.lulu.com), a print-on-demand website that enables anyone to publish their own book.
Its publication follows hard on the launch of “RS Shock Team/RLS Rockford Commemorative Photo-book,” “Karma—stories inspired by Rick Springfield,” and, last but not least, the “RLS Cookbook,” which includes recipes submitted by Springfield himself, his band members and tour manager.
“This is no longer just a trickle of books on Rick Springfield,” says Bob Young, CEO of Lulu.com. “It’s a swelling wave. We think of it as our “Rick Springfield Collection”. Who knows, this could turn into the biggest new literary movement since the Beats.”

“Helping Hens: Rooster Tales for Zachary” -- Helping Hens offers something for every Springfield fan, including hundreds of pictures and sublime memories of ordinary fans.
