Hartford Native Kirker Butler Releasing First Novel “Pretty Ugly” [VIDEO]

The first time I heard of Kirker Butler, I still knew him as Kirk, it was more than likely through my Dad. He had Kirk as a student at Ohio County Middle School in the early 80s. When I first saw him, he was onstage with my Dad in a Hartford Courhouse Players production of another Kentucky native Jesse Stuart's play 'The Thread That Runs So True'. That was a LONG time ago. Now, after finding success behind the scenes as a TV writer/producer ('Family Guy', 'What I Like About You', 'The Cleveland Show', 'The Neighbors', and most recently, ABC's 'Galavant') Butler is releasing his first novel "Pretty Ugly" this week and it centers around the world of, get ready for it, child beauty pageants!

Even More From Erin’s Shelves, Including A Book Of KY Ghost Stories

I never knew I was such a book worm! I was scrounging around at my parents' house; they were still on vacation and I found a gold mine of books I know I've read. Some are classics, some aren't, but they are all good reads, especially that thin blue one towards the top of the pile.

Yes, there may not be many books on my orange shelf, but I think it's good to have a few to liven up a room. What about you? Do you like to read? If so, do you still read a physical book as seen here? Or, do you download all of your literature to your various mobile devices. Me, I do a little bit of both.

Watch The Official “Fifty Shades Of Grey” Trailer: Not Safe For Young Eyes

I'm not a reader. I'm not gonna lie to you and say that I am, I'm just not. While admitting that, do you know how long it took me to read the Fifty Shades Of Grey trilogy? Ten days. Yes, three books in ten days. There's no shame in my I-just-couldn't-stop-reading-about-the-many-red-hot-layers of Christian Grey game. (See what I did there?!?)

So, you can imagine my anticipation for the movie. Even thou the movie won't be here until Valentine's Day 2015, the official trailer has been released. (I've already watched it 5 times, haha!)

DISCLAIMER: THIS VIDEO IS NOT FOR ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 OR WHO EMBARRASSES EASILY. YES, ADULTS ONLY PEOPLE! OH... ENJOY ;)
