Fans of such celebrities as Daniel Radcliffe, Ellen Degeneres, Marie Osmond or Taylor Swift can take comfort in knowing that they will soon be able to read more details about their favorite stars, or at least the author hopes so.
'We're looking at launching the first book by the middle of October,' author Randy Jernigan told a Denver, Colorado radio station in an interview early Tuesday ( September 16, 2014) morning. 'This book series is the result of a lot of hard work. Not just in interviews, research and writing, but when you're dealing with celebrities it seems as if you have endless meetings with their reps-attorney's, agents and pr people. Before we publish we have to get the 'all clear' from their people. I think we're only waiting on one last call and then we go to press.'
Writing about the private lives of celebrities has been Randy Jernigan's bread and butter for the last twenty-two years, doing magazine features on Tom Cruise, Brittney Spears, even Justin Bieber. But, according to Jernigan, you're not about to find those names in his book.
'I've been very selective about who is included in this book series,' explained the author. 'Stars That Make A Difference' is about celebrities that have good reputations for giving back. Those celebs known for caring about their fans and their communities. Not to disrespect the kid but you're not about to find a biographical sketch of Bieber in one of my books, or detail about their private lives-just not gonna happen.' Jernigan told the interviewer.
In the interview Jernigan made mention of the work actor Daniel Radcliffe does freely for the 'Trevor Project' and that of Marie Osmond and her devotion to sick children and 'The Children's Miracle Network.' Other stars to be included in the series are Ellen Degeneres and Taylor Swift.
According to officials at Creative Partners Publishing, the book will be released digitally for the first year, then go to paperback.
Creative Partners has already sold serial rights to Asian, European and British markets, with more currently being negotiated.
'Stars That Make A Difference' will be available at Amazon's Kindle and other digital platforms by mid October. (more...)
