I just wanted to share some news with you all, about my forthcoming and current projects.....
First of all, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has bought my book, 'The Mammoth Book of Hollywood Scandals' so far. The response has been very positive and I'm so glad that people are enjoying it. One thing I'd like to address, are the publication dates, which are as follows:
UK (published by Constable & Robinson) - 17th October.
USA (published by Running Press) - 3rd December (though Amazon seems to have the Kindle version available now).
The rest of the world seems to be coming out at any time between those two dates, so if you can't find it straight away, please ask your local book shop and they'll be able to tell you when the book is out. It is currently available in hundreds of Waterstones stores up and down the UK, and of course is on sale at Amazon, WH Smith etc. I am absolutely thrilled with the way the book came out, and it makes a great Christmas present for anyone and everyone interested in scandals from the 1920s to the present day!
I'd also like to thank everyone who continues to buy the Marilyn biography, which is still selling well, over a year after publication. It truly was a great honour for me to tell Marilyn's story in the updated book and so I'm glad people are enjoying it.
'Marilyn's Blue Book Days' is going well and I'm hoping to bring you some good news about that, some time next year. In the meantime, please join the FaceBook page dedicated to the project:
I am currently working on a secret project which - when finished - should be huge! It is one of the hardest, but most rewarding things I have worked on and I can't wait to share that news with you as soon as possible. It won't be until next year, but believe me, if all goes well it will be worth the wait.
After the success of my V & A talk, I'm happy to say that I will probably be returning next summer, to talk about The Mammoth Book of Hollywood Scandals. Watch this space for more details....
Lots of people have been asking me about the Carole Lombard book. Well I am still writing it, but the focus has changed from a straight-forward biography, to what I hope will be a beautiful coffee-table book. My ideas changed after receiving a great many fabulous photos which need to be published in a glossy book in my opinion. With that in mind, the search is on for a publisher who will be able to do this, and I will keep you up-to-date on all developments.
Finally, in a few weeks time I will be able to share some very, very exciting news about an upcoming project with you all. For now my lips must remain sealed but I am ecstatically happy and will look forward to being able to tell you all about it soon....
I promise I will update the blog with more news soon. Until then, please feel free to join my official page on FaceBook:
Thanks everyone and Happy Halloween!!

I am thrilled that publication day is finally here for my new book, 'The Mammoth Book of Hollywood Scandals'. I'm really excited to learn that Amazon seems to be re-stocking their supplies, after selling out of pre-ordered copies, and almost every Waterstones store in the UK is currently selling more than one copy of the book.
Some people have been asking me if I have plans to do some book signings. I don't at the moment, but anything I do decide to do, will be reported here so please keep checking back.
Until then, thanks to everyone who has bought the book and I hope you enjoy it!!!
