On Tour October 1976 

Here is the cover-art for the Kieran Davis book “On Tour October 1976” which was released in an initial run of 100 copies. If there is sufficient interest another print run can be done according to the author. The next book to be published will be a companion to “On Tour October 1976” but will deviate from the usual format in that it is a pictorial work dedicated to just one show - the one in Champaign. This book, entitled "Champaign 1976", is due in the new year. 

Las Vegas '56 

The book "Las Vegas '56" by Norwegian writer Erik Lorentzen in his Gold Standard Series has been released. The book covers Elvis' very first gig in Las Vegas where he made his debut on April 23, 1956 at the Venus Room at the Frontier Hotel. 

Sandra Harmon Died

Sandra Harmon, the co-author with Priscilla Presley of the 1980s best-seller Elvis and Me and an Emmy-winning writer who worked on shows hosted by Dick Cavett and Bill Cosby, has died. She was 80.

Harmon died Dec. 13 at St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx after a long battle with cancer, publicist Hannah Kampf announced.

Elvis and Me, the story of Elvis Presley and wife Priscilla Presley — whom the singer and movie star met when she was 14 — has sold more than 1 million copies in hard cover and 3 million in paperback since it was first published in September 1985.

It spent more than 50 weeks on The New York Times' best-seller list, and according to The Wall Street Journal, only nine other books sold more than it did in the 1980s.

ABC turned Elvis and Me into a four-hour miniseries that starred Dale Midkiff and Susan Walters and attracted huge ratings when it aired in February 1988.
