The bulk of David DePierre’s manuscript about the history of oral sex has just arrived. Tentatively scheduled for fall 2017 or spring 2018 and tentatively titled A History of Oral Sex, his work examines the general rise, fall, and renaissance of oral sex in world history. In addition to an overall perspective of the practice by various cultures, the book covers specific times that fellatio or cunnilingus altered the history of people and nations. Reasons for the decline and rebirth of the practice as well as explanations for the different views of oral sex across the globe are examined.
Clayton Delery, the author of The Up Stairs Lounge Arson, has delivered his latest manuscript. One evening in New Orleans, three Tulane undergrads wanted to beat up a stranger just because he was gay. Fernando Rios fit that bill. He was beaten and robbed in an alleyway, left unconscious on the sidewalk, and died later that day. During January of 1959, his assailants were charged but acquitted under the “gay panic” defense, and the courtroom cheered. Out for Queer Blood: The Murder of Fernando Rios and the Failure of New Orleans Justice, to be released Fall 2017, delves into the connections between anti-Latino prejudices, homophobia, and societal norms in 1950s America.
For their latest issue, Tom Giffey of Volume One magazine interviewed author Robert Dudley and reviewed Finding Jacob Wetterling: The 27-Year Investigation from Kidnapping to Confession. Giffey called the book “a compelling read” and that “the detailed exploration of the crime, its aftermath, and its ultimate resolution are gripping.”
On December 12 at 7:00 P.M., Eau Claire true-crime author Robert M. Dudley will discuss the story behind his research and books about the Jacob Wetterling kidnapping investigation. Dudley will detail how long-forgotten information from the beginning of the case was resurrected and how it led to resolution of the most notorious crime in the history of the State of Minnesota. The free admission event is hosted by Volume One located at 205 N Dewey Street, Eau Claire, WI 54703.
Robert M. Dudley, author of Finding Jacob Wetterling, loaned his expertise to the Fox Television investigative report “Monster & Mentor.” The report provides coverage of the man known to be one of the most notorious sex offenders in Minnesota, and the one who likely groomed the man who confessed to kidnapping, assaulting and murdering Jacob Wetterling.

McFarland Expands with New Imprint
JEFFERSON, North Carolina – November 1, 2016 – Scholarly publisher McFarland has announced the launch in November of Exposit Books, a new imprint combining serious nonfiction with a bookstore-first approach. Exposit’s initial offering is Finding Jacob Wetterling by Robert M. Dudley. The book covers in detail the 1989 kidnapping in St. Joseph, Minnesota, of 11-year-old Wetterling, the remarkable response from the community and local and state authorities, the 27-year investigation and its heartbreaking conclusion. The first full group of titles, set for a fall 2017 release, will likewise feature true crime topics.
“We’re releasing six titles the first season, and true crime authors Kevin M. Sullivan and Clayton Delery are both signed on and contributing books for the rollout,” said Executive Editor Lisa Camp. “We will be publishing a wide range of titles, eventually including books about entertainment, psychology, sex, health and history.
