HOLLYWOOD OR BUST WINS AWARD.
San Francisco Book Festival Recognizes Excellence.
The San Francisco Book Festival, organized by JM Northern Media LLC, announced the winners of its annual contest celebrating the best books of the spring on May 6.
A panel of experts judged the books in several categories, including fiction, non-fiction, biography, history and business, for general excellence and the potential to reach a wider audience. Hollywood or Bust: Movie Stars Dish on Following their Dreams, Making it Big, and Surviving in Tinseltown received Honorable Mention in the Wild Card category
Although not taking the top spot, author Susan Marg is pleased with the results, as Hollywood or Bust was released just a few weeks ago. “I believe this award validates my perception that we are endlessly fascinated with the movies and the people who make them,” she comments, adding, “It’s a fun read.”
Hollywood or Bust, ISBN 978-0-578-11882-6, is a 182-page paperback book consisting of seven chapters and twenty original photographs. Topics cover dreams of success to attending the Oscars. It lists for $14.95.
Susan Marg is the author of Las Vegas Weddings: A Brief History, Celebrity Gossip, Everything Elvis, and the Complete Chapel Guide, published by HarperCollins. Since she has moved her field of focus from the City of Lights to the City of Angels, her interest in popular culture has only intensified.
