Tomorrow is the official launch date of my book, Ann Blyth: Actress. Singer. Star. 

Well, sort of.

The eBook is now up for pre-order on Amazon here. 

BUT, the paperback is actually available now from Amazon and CreateSpace, which is the printer.  I initiated the "for sale" option on CreateSpace, hoping that by the 18th, it would sync-up with the eBook on Amazon, so both would appear on the same page, and this usually takes up to five business days to show up. Unpredictably, they did it immediately.  Of course, if you order the print book from Amazon or CreateSpace, it still won't arrive for a few days, but you can buy it now if you want.  You can also order it from my Etsy shop.

If you wish a signed copy, then email me at and I'll get back to you with the details.

Today and tomorrow I'll continue 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, just picking 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.  If you care to get involved, please send me an email at:

ANNOUNCEMENT: This coming Friday and Saturday - the 19th and 20th - I'll be taking questions and chatting with the folks on the Silver Screen Oasis message boards.  Please stop by and join the discussion on Ann Blyth. Thanks so much to Moira Finnie for the invitation.

If you want put to your name in for the daily raffle of stuff, please, also, send me an email.  Don't just leave a comment in the comments box because I need some way to contact you if you've won.  Your email will never be published, I will NOT be putting it on my newsletter list, it will not be used for anything except contacting you tell you if you've won, and to ask where to send the stuff. 

Today's prize is a home-made DVD of a home-made DVD of unknown origins (other than a friend found it for me online) of a rare episode from TV's golden age - The June Allyson Show (Also known as the DuPont Show with June Allyson), in which Ann stars with Gerald Mohr in "Suspected."  Ann is charged with murder. I discuss it in detail in my book, but that's all I'm giving away here, except that the episode is under a half-hour in time length.  It was originally broadcast December 28, 1959.

So, that's what's on the block for today.  If this suits your fancy, send me an email to and just say something like "Give me the TV show DVD."

If you happen live outside of the United States, that's okay.  I will mail to our friends and neighbors around the globe.

That's it for today.  I'll see you tomorrow, for the last time, with more stuff.

Available from Amazon.comCreateSpace, my Etsy shop, and directly from the author: Ann Blyth: Actress. Singer. Star., the first book written on the career of Ann Blyth.
