Behind Blue Eyes

Got a full plate in front of me for most of this week, but I did mention Saturday that there was another fabulous Thrilling Days of Yesteryear giveaway in the works starting today, and it comes courtesy of our good friends at Crown/Random House:

Thirty years after she first heard his voice singing on the jukebox at her local drive-in, Barbara Ann Blakely heard Frank Sinatra take the wedding vows that began his fourth, final, and most enduring marriage.

In Lady Blue Eyes, Barbara Sinatra’s first public love letter to the husband she adored, she celebrates the sensational singer, possessive mate, sexy heartthrob, and devoted friend that she found in Frank.  For more than two decades, Barbara was always by his side, traveling the globe and hosting glittering events for their famous friends, including presidents, kings, queens, Hollywood royalty, and musical legends.  Among them were Sammy Davis, Jr., Princess Grace of Monaco, Bob Dylan, and Ronald Reagan.  Each night, as Frank publicly wooed his bride with love songs from a concert stage, she’d fall in love with him all over again.

You can check out a snippet from this book here, but I have even better news: Crown’s Christina Foxley was generous enough to provide two free copies of this book, Lady Blue Eyes, and I want to give one each to two lucky TDOY contest entrants.  (What do I need to do, I hear you asking…and it can’t be the voices in my head, because they’re not nearly tinny enough.) Just shoot me an e-mail at igsjrotr(at)gmail(dot)com with the subject header “Barbara Sinatra book” by next Monday (March 19) at 11:59pm.  Tuesday morning, I’ll draw two names via The Amazing Random Number Generator(!) at, and ship out the books to the winners posthaste.  (You don’t need to provide your snail mail address right away if you so desire.  If you’ve been fortunate to win free swag here in the past, all I ask is that you sit out a thirty-day grace period to let others have a shot at getting goodies.)

The record shows…he took the blows…and did it his way.  And you can read all about from the perspective of Mrs. Chairman of the Board, Barbara Sinatra, in this fabulous new book.  Enter today…Thrilling Days of Yesteryear, where the winning tradition continues!
