PRLog - Dec. 14, 2009 - ROCKFORD, Ill. -- The novel "Pookoo" by D.L. Shiloh wasn't meant to be required reading, but it may be something rising sports stars may want to read before embarking into the wild world of sports.
Sports, mascots and fame - Pookoo's warning to future Tigers.
"Tiger Woods may have avoided some pitfalls, if he'd only read the book," its author says. "It has it all: a college star turned Olympic hero who cheats on his wife and loses face in the public's eye. He loses sponsorship. Yet with Katlin Hillmacher, he can't help himself. I hope that Woods can pull himself out of the nose dive he's gotten into."
"Pookoo" is about Hillmacher, whose sexual escapades make him go off-focus. Set in the early 1990s, it's been downloaded from readers in 15 countries. It's also available on Amazon.com at http://www.amazon.com/
"On a serious note, any celebrity scandal validates the time I put into the novel," Shiloh said. "I feel vindicated. I'm glad more people are finding the story and seeing it for what it's worth. They've asked me about a sequel, and who knows? The momentum keeps building. I'd do it in a heartbeat once I get 5,000 sales."
