There's a November Holiday that I look forward to each year, and that's the release of a new CALL OF DUTY game. This year, it looks as if I'll have to finally make the upgrade to an XBOX ONE, though, as CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS III has been revealed for a November 6 release (dubbed "The New Black Friday"), and this time around it's going current-gen-only. Available for Sony PLAYSTATION 4, Microsoft XBOX ONE and PC, the game's first reveal trailer can be viewed below, and pre-orders are already up through Amazon, Gamestop and Best Buy.
By definition, KEITH RICHARDS is, indeed, a "Rock Father," but the type of excess that THE ROLLING STONES' guitarist is known for doesn't exactly line up with the title of "Children's Author."

Featuring illustrations by Richards' daughter, Theodora, the book will be released in hardcover and ebook on September 9, 2014 via Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.
