My biography of Pola Negri has been submitted to McFarland Publishers and should see publication next year under the title of “Pola Negri: Temptress of Silent Hollywood.” Tah-dah! Although I’m not exactly doing cartwheels over the title–that was their decision–I will defer to it as they know how to sell books. Still a long way to go: I have to write the marketing material, fix the proofs and–shudder–do the index. But I know it will be all worthwhile in the end and I will accomplish a life-long of being a published author. The other important consideration is that I did this entirely for Pola. She deserves it.
