Soap Opera Book Alert

I should say books alert as there are two soap opera related books coming up which I look forward to.

As reported by the website WE LOVE SOAPS: "The Survival of Soap Opera: Transformations for a New Media Era" which is now available for pre-order at Edited by Sam Ford, Abigail De Kosnik and C. Lee Harrington, the academic book, from University Press of Mississippi, is officially out on December. A number of wonderful soap journalists and critics also contributed to the book.

As reported on Sheri Anderson's FACEBOOK page: The past DAYS headwriter will be penning three Days of Our Lives novels. Sourcebooks, Sony Pictures and Corday Productions are all collaborating to launch "Days of Our Lives Publications." Already, executive producer Ken Corday's memoir has been released through them. The first novel penned by Sheri Anderson will be entitled "Secrets, Scandals and Lies, Vol. 1", expanding on the past characters of John and Marlena. While I admit that I would rather see these characters on my screen and I would love to see Sheri writing on DAYS again, I am looking forward to seeing her work in fiction. She was one of the best writers for DAYS; her characters still resonate today, as can be seen with the hopefully-soon-to-be reunion of Shane and Kim Donovan.


  1. Charles is a wonderful actor and I am oh so touched by his interest in this Gulf oil disaster. He is wonderful with his fans. He will be interesting to listen to.

  2. I agree with Cindy. Charles is not only a talented actor, he seems such a good hearted person as well. He listens to his fans and is passionate about the environment, politics, as well as the good of mankind. Think that it will be great for "Kim & Shane" to reunite after all these years. Also good for the past fans of the show to have closure for them as well as trip down memory line. Is my experience that people do sometimes come back into your life or that life sometimes runs full circle. The tribute to they're fallen cast member, is very sweet as well. Should make for a good show or storyline too.

  3. Forgot to mention that he is funny too and we love the accent. Oh yeah, and the white streak. The spy line of work is a nice touch as well. We women are just attracted to a dangerous man. Although i don't really know why. Don't make the rules here, just live by them.

  4. Thanks! If anyone would like any more information about "The Survival of Soap Opera," you can be in touch at
