ELIZABETH TAYLOR, There is Nothing Like a Dame, is a "big book" overview of the life and career of America's hottest and most iconic brunette. Syndicated columnist Cindy Adams said, "Elizabeth Taylor's not about to lie down...again. Holding this 624-age softcover with gloves proves that, indeed, THERE IS NOTHING LIKE A DAME!" Alan Petrucelli of EXAMINER.COM says, "Elizabeth Taylor spans the Twentieth Century like a bawdy queen surveying her subjects. This book relays an overview of her life better than any other." The Huffington Post defined it as "a new tell-all book which makes some shocking new allegations about the actress's love life." And the San Francisco Examiner said that "the allegations in this tell-all are especially, um, unsettling." Even INSIDE EDITION weighed in with a TV spot, and the blogsites are abuzz. For more about this, including access to a videotaped book trailer describing some of the source material used during its compilation, refer to the "Elizabeth Taylor" page within the "OUR BOOKS" section of this website.

J. EDGAR HOOVER and CLYDE TOLSON: Investigating the Sexual Secrets of America's Most Famous Men and Women Winner of at least two literary awards, this is the publishing industry's most comprehensive overview of history's most dangerous and vindictive voyeur---J. Edgar Hoover. The book's release was heralded on January 31, 2012 by syndicated gossip columnist CINDY ADAMS in the NEW YORK POST:
"EVERYONE'S DREDGING UP J. EDGAR HOOVER. Leonardo DiCaprio just immortalized him, and now comes Darwin Porter's paperback, J. Edgar Hoover and Clyde Tolson: Investigating the Sexual Secrets of America's Most Famous Men and Women. Stuff on Brando, JFK, Einstein, Katharine Hepburn, etc. Marilyn Monroe's 'hysteria,' 'Boudoir Singer' Frank Sinatra plus 'all the gossip unfit to print' about all the Kennedys. The book shovels 'Hoover's darkest secrets dragged kicking and screaming from the closet.' President Harry Truman likened him to the Gestapo. President Lyndon Johnson said, 'He's got us by the cojones.' It's filth on every VIP who's safely dead, and some who are still above ground."
FRANK SINATRA, The Boudoir Singer, All the Gossip Unfit to Print from the Glory Days of Ol' Blue Eyes
SINATRA NOTORIOUS! Here's all the gossip previously unfit to print about the celebrities and politicos scandalously linked to history's most famous male entertainer. The "Stranger in the Night" international icon had it all--fame, untold riches, stunningly beautiful women, the world for a playground. "That's Life" was lived not in the sun, but in shadows. Pleasure became debauchery, mood swings turned violent, joy brought pain, triumphs tragedy. Within the pages of this book, one of the most controversial and elusive figures of the 20th century emerges as "The Man Behind the Myth."
In this extraordinary compilation of stories previously known to only a coterie of entertainment-industry insiders, co-author Darwin Porter, America's leading celebrity chronicler of Golden Age Hollywood, manages to turn over more than a few boulders in Sinatra's secret garden. After all, Sinatra lived in a pre-tabloid era when "inconvenient truths" were conveniently and systematically buried. It answers many questions, all of them scandalous and some of them intensely political, which have puzzled the public for decades. FRANK SINATRA, The Boudoir Singer, reveals exactly what the Chairman of the Board meant when he sang that he did it "My Way." Thanks to the publication of this book, many of Ol' Blue Eyes' fans will never be able to look at their idol in quite the same way ever again.

BLOOD MOON: Entertainment About How America Interprets Its Celebrities
LINDA IS READY! LINDA IS COMING. Look for Blood Moon's HOTTEST new biography, available in March of 2013 and sure to generate a fuss: INSIDE LINDA LOVELACE'S DEEP THROAT--DEGRADATION, PORNO CHIC, AND THE RISE OF FEMINISM.
We've appreciated the flood of publicity associated with the biography we released in October, Elizabeth Taylor, There Is Nothing Like a Dame, which was reviewed or evaluated (usually favorably) EVERYWHERE, it seemed. But THANKS TO LINDA, we expect reviews a bit more raucous and a reaction that's a bit more heated. We're talking about a rigorously researched 640-page comprehensive overview of the life and implications of the porn star who changed the lifestyles and landscapes of America forever because of the well-known porn movie she starred in, Deep Throat.
NEWS ABOUT LINDA: In late February, just a few days before its worldwide release, this title had already generated its first literary award, the coveted designation as RUNNER UP to the WINNER of the 2012-2013 LOS ANGELES BOOK FESTIVAL, in the intensely competitive BIOGRAPHY category. As stated by Danforth Prince, "Because the vintage porn star Linda Lovelace spent much of her public life servicing the needs of Entertainment Industry personnel associated with L.A., Blood Moon is particularly honored with this much-respected literary award from the Los Angeles Book Festival."
... Our most visible author is the world’s most respected (and outrageous) celebrity biographer, the inimitable Darwin Porter, who has been described by Examiner.com (Alan Petrucelli) like this: "There are guilty pleasures. Then there is the Master of Guilty Pleasures, Darwin Porter. There is nothing like reading him for passing the hours...He is the Nietzsche of Naughtiness, the Goethe of Gossip, the Proust of Pop Culture. Porter knows all the nasty buzz anyone has ever heard whispered in dark bars, dim alleys, and confessional booths. And lovingly, precisely, and in as straightforward a manner as an oncoming train, his prose whacks you between the eyes with the greatest gossip since Kenneth Anger. Some would say better than Anger."
"Porter has brought us biographies of Sinatra, Bogart, Paul Newman, Steve McQueen, Brando, and Merv Griffin. And he doesn't pussyfoot around, unless pussyfooting is a newly discovered fetish. His latest work, J. Edgar Hoover and Clyde Tolson: Investigating the Sexual Secrets of America's Most Famous Men and Women--the couple that could well be voted "please stay in the closet" by the gay community--is a masterwork, perhaps the greatest of all his books...A feast for future historians."
