Ann Blyth: Three Weeks to Go

We've three weeks to go before Ann Blyth: Actress. Singer. Star. is published. 

Here's what's going to happen in June:  I'm going to blog every day until Thursday, June 18th, when the book is published.  Beginning on Monday, June 1st and every day until the 18th, I'm going to give away a small piece of memorabilia I've gathered on this journey: photos, magazines, an audio CD of old time radio, a DVD of a film, of a television appearance, a few original lobby cards from Ann's films.  So stop by frequently and see what's happening.  I'll let you know day by day what the prize is, and I'll just pick the winners from a hat. 

Since a number of bloggers have kindly offered to review the book, I'll link to their blogs throughout the month, before and after the 18th, whenever they decide to post.  Other bloggers will be posting their interviews with me.  I'll also be making good on my offer some months ago to thank participating bloggers by drawing names among them for copies of the print book, with eBooks going to the rest.

The eBook version of Ann Blyth: Actress. Singer. Star. will be for sale only through  Amazon Kindle for just the first few months, and then will be available elsewhere on line, and eventually directly from me.  I'm planning to have it listed for "pre-order" on the Amazon site on Monday, June 8th.  More about that next week.

The print book will be available through Amazon, CreateSpace, and signed copies will be available directly from me.  There are a few ways you can order a signed print book:

Send me an email at

Order one through my website at:

Order one through my new Etsy shop: LynchTwinsPublishing here.

In all of these three options you can pay by PayPal, or check or money order. (You can also use credit cards at the Etsy shop.)  At some point down the road I will also be offering the eBook directly in a few different formats, but not just yet.  I'll keep you posted.


You'll also be able to order through this blog.  Take a look at the "Pages" box on the sidebar.  One of them is ORDER FORM.  Just print it out and mail it with your check or money order.  Email me if you'd rather do PayPal.  NOTE:  Print only "page 1" or you'll have 60 or 70 pages spitting out on your computer of my blog sidebar.  Don't do that.  It's a waste of paper, ink, and you'll hate me.

I think that's it for the shameless commercialism for now.  If you have any questions, just email me.  I'll be here.

I'll see you in a few days, on Monday, June 1st, for the first giveaway in our 18 days of you-just-can't-live-without-them prizes.

When convenient, could you send me 250 word excerpt you mentioned previously plus Amazon link, and maybe if you have time,tell my blog why you have this devotion to Ann.
And is there a particular date you would like me to post?

Thank you, Vienna, I'd be very happy to, but I need your email. I'll try contacting you on your blog.

Oh dear, that capital "B" bothers me. I should have italicized it to begin with. Do you have the ebook all print-ready for publishing? If not, I'll send you a fixed version before it gets sent off to the ( digital ) printer. The things one notices at the last minute.......

I never noticed. "The things one notices..." I'm still tinkering with both the print and the eBook versions (the linkable table of contents in the eBook was a hair-pulling event, but I finally got it), and finding things I want to change. The days are dwindling down, however, and very soon I'm going to have to pry the book out of my hands and let it go on its merry way into the world, for better or worse.

You have time if you want to fix it, but don't worry too much. You are meticulous about your work, and so are probably the only one who would notice a B.
