FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BEACH BOOK FESTIVAL AWARDS HOLLYWOOD OR BUST.
The 2013 Beach Book Festival announced winners on June 10. Hollywood or Bust: Movie Stars Dish on Following their Dreams, Making it Big, and Surviving in Tinseltown placed first in the category Compilations/Anthologies.
Comprised of over five hundred quips, quotes, and off-the-cuff remarks from actors, directors, writers, and others involved in the business, Hollywood or Bust conveys what insiders think about themselves, their lives, their fame, their careers, each other, and the town itself. Even among those who have made it opinions vary as to whether or not the road trip down the yellow brick road to fame and fortune is worth the heartache and hard work.
Author Susan Marg is thrilled with the award. “The Beach Book Festival seemed like a natural competition for my book. Hollywood or Bust is a fun, summer read, filled with wit and whimsy.” She further adds, “I won’t be going to the rewards ceremony, however, as it takes place in New York.”
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.
