Entertainment author M.A. Cassata has announced the release of The Elton John Scrapbook: Revised and Updated eBook Edition.
The original book was published in 2002, and over the years, fans have requested that a newly updated version be published. Cassata heard her fans’ requests and went to work on the new version that was just released.
Cassata has been an entertainment author for 30 years, in which time she’s written for popular publications including The New York Post, Hollywood Reporter, and Rolling Stone. She’s also written more than 20 books on popular celebrities including Cher, Britney Spears, Jim Carrey, Ariana Grande, and more. In addition, Cassata is the founder of the growing entertainment site themacwire.com.
Using her vast knowledge on Elton John, Cassata revised The Elton John Scrapbook to include updated information on the legendary entertainer, as well as in-depth interviews, critical commentary, anecdotes, information on collecting Elton John memorabilia, and more.
“In 2002, Citadel Press published The Elton John Scrapbook and it quickly became a fan favorite. For years fans have asked me to revise it, but the time was never right. It is right now. I am glad I finally did it,” said Cassata. “The purpose of this updated and revised edition, as with the original, is to celebrate the life and body of work of a man who continues to inspire millions and instills a sense of hope through his music and charitable works.”
The Elton John Scrapbook: Revised and Updated eBook Edition has received high acclaim from readers already. Mark Bego, author of 60 books on rock and roll and show business, including Elton John: The Bitch is Back, said, “M. A. Cassata has a long history of writing fascinating books about several of the pop world’s true icons. This book shows off all of her strong points, which draws upon her vast knowledge about Elton, and about the music business in general. Music fans love Cassata for her adherence to detail, and with Elton John as a subject she truly has a true field day! From fascinating facts about Elton’s vast catalog of music, to his addictions, his outrageous fashion sense, his personal life, and a complete discography, this book has it all!”
Robert Rosen, author of Nowhere Man: The Final Days of John Lennon, said, “The energy, the melody, and the poetry of Elton John and Bernie Taupin—a songwriting team equal to John Lennon and Paul McCartney—demanded my attention from the moment, in 1971, that I first heard ‘Your Song’ pouring from my stereo speakers. I’ve been paying attention ever since, and that’s why I find M.A. Cassata’s Elton John Scrapbook a delight. This revised and updated tribute—long awaited by many—contains a wealth of information and rarely seen photos that paint an intimate and unforgettable portrait of one of our most compelling performers. Cassata, a veteran rock journalist who has interviewed such icons as Bob Dylan, Patti Smith, McCartney, and Elton himself, has put together a book that his fans will treasure.”
The Elton John Scrapbook: Revised and Updated eBook Edition is now available on Amazon, iBooks, Barnes & Noble, and other online book retailers. More information can also be found at http://www.macassata.com/.
