Marilyn Monroe 50th Anniversary

I have been contacted by various members of the media regarding Marilyn's 50th anniversary this week, and of course I am always happy to be interviewed in my capacity as biographer, former fan club president (for 16 years) and huge fan.

If you are a member of the press and would like to interview me for a feature, or have me on your radio/TV show, please get in touch.  My email is Michelle[at]MichelleMorgan[dot]co[dot]uk or leave a comment here and I'll get back to you.


Best and Grazia

I popped up town this morning to run some errands with my daughter, and as I waited for the bank to open, I suddenly remembered that both Best and Grazia were doing items about my book today!

I have no idea how I had temporarily forgotten, but thank goodness I remembered before we'd returned home, and so rushed to WHSmith to pick up both copies.

I am really thrilled with the results.  Best magazine gave me a whole page, while Grazia mentions my book and quotes me in an article they wrote about Marilyn.  Both have given great publicity for the book, so I'm very happy about that.  My daughter even jumped up and down and screamed wildly about mummy being in a magazine, though I don't think the old lady next to us was too impressed by it.  She just looked at us as if we were crazy; picked up her TV Times and made a hasty exit!

I'm not sure I blame her!

Marilyn Monroe in the Huffington Post

I wrote a small article about Marilyn for the Huffington Post last week, which I've only just got round to telling you about as I was on holiday when it was published.

It is short but sweet and has increased publicity for my book in the USA so I'm very happy about that.  Here is a link:

Best and Grazia

UK friends - Don't forget to rush out to the shops tomorrow and pick up the latest copy of Best and Grazia. 

I have a whole page feature in Best, talking about my Marilyn collection (written by them from an interview with me) and it also includes some photos, including the one below, which is me aged 27, standing outside the Lawford Beach house with a very dodgy hairdo and a bum bag!!  Yikes!!

As far as I can figure, I also have a teeny mention in Grazia, during an article they've written about Marilyn.  It started off as a big mention, but by the end of the day I'd shrunk to a few lines, or maybe even a sentence or two....  I'm still a little sketchy on the details with that one, but hopefully it will be worth picking up!

I have more media appearances coming soon.  I'll post details when I get them....

My Marilyn book is currently part of the Kindle Reading Marathon at the moment and selling for just over a pound in the UK/Europe.  So pop along to the Kindle store and grab yourself a bargain!

Possible upcoming interviews/mentions....

Some news just in..... My book MIGHT be mentioned in Grazia Magazine, in the issue that is on sale between 31 July and 6 August.  I say might because while I've definitely been quoted in the copy they've written (and the reporter says I should stay in there), something could happen in the meantime and I could end up on the cutting room floor....

But fingers crossed all will be well and my book and me will be mentioned/quoted.

I have also given an interview with Best Magazine for an upcoming issue, which should be out around the first week of August.

More news on interviews, as and when I get it! :-)
