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 Amazon.com. 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.
