FIVE days to go until my book, Ann Blyth: Actress. Singer. Star. is published on Thursday, June 18th.

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

The paperback will be available on 18th from Amazon, CreateSpace, and directly from me.  If you'd like a signed copy, just email me at and I'll get back to you with the details.

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.  If you care to get involved, please send me an email at:

You can read (or listen to) interviews with me and reviews of Ann Blyth: Actress. Singer. Star. at these sites:

Twenty Four Frames

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 an issue of Motion Picture magazine from February 1957.  Ann Blyth has a two-page article on the effects of slander in the film industry as a tie-in with her film Slander (1957).  There are also articles on Jack Lemmon, Tony Perkins, Vera Miles, Janet Leigh, lots of other bits about other stars of the day, photos, a fun bit of memorabilia for the collector or classic film blogger.

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 magazine."

Until June 18th, if you want to enter this daily contest more than once, even if you've already won a prize, go ahead.  I don't care.  I'm going to wait until the end of it to send out these items to the winners, in case some of you do win more than once, and it'll save me several trips to the post office if I do it one time at the end. 

Also, 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 with more stuff.

Coming June 18th -, CreateSpace, and directly from the author: Ann Blyth: Actress. Singer. Star., the first book written on the career of Ann Blyth.

Oh boy, oh boy! Five days left. Congratulations on getting the ebook up. Could you put me in the hat drawing for this magazine? I love old movie magazines. Use to pick the up at antique shops but now most of them don't sell them in their stores anymore ( they're probably selling them on eBay instead ).

Your Sonny Tufts comment on the other post cracked me up. Poor Sonny.

Yes, there are magazines like this on eBay--I wouldn't say a lot, but you can find them, and some can be quite expensive.
