Last weekend I released a new eBook for Kindle, Freddie Bartholomew: An Informal Biography. It’s available right now for just 99¢ on Amazon.
Amazon makes a more universal reader freely available for anyone who doesn’t own a Kindle.
Freddie Bartholomew: An Informal Biography is the latest major revision of the most popular post on the site. I first posted my Freddie biography in three parts in early 2011, then revised it into a single post in mid-2012. You can still read that second version here.
This third edition is essentially a more polished version of that post, rewritten entirely in many spots with additional commentaries about a few of Freddie’s more important movies that I glossed over last time. I’ve also added an Introduction, Filmography, Footnotes, and more sources to the Bibliography. You won’t find the images included in the older blog post, but I wanted to test using photos in an eBook, so I’ve included four inside this new text.
According to Amazon the eBook file is the equivalent of 59 pages.
The Amazon preview allows anybody to read the entire Introduction and the first few paragraphs of main text, free of charge.
I hadn’t planned on publishing Freddie as an eBook, not yet at least, but found I needed some practice as I get closer to my next original release. As mentioned near the end of the book, during the first half of 2015 I expect to complete a biography of Helen Twelvetrees and a second volume of Pre-Code Hollywood Histories. I published Freddie to reacquaint myself with the publishing process while also giving myself a break from the coming Twelvetrees volume, which I also hope to make available in paperback form.
So, once again, you can purchase Freddie Bartholomew: An Informal Biography HERE on Amazon.
As always, thank you so much for all of your support!
