Molly Parkin signs huge publishing deal with Beautiful Books


British publisher Beautiful Books has signed up writer/poet/eminent fashionista Molly Parkin as one of its authors in a comprehensive books and music deal. It will publish her memoirs Welcome To Mollywood on October 21, 2010.

In addition, BB will republish the first three of Molly's comic erotic novels – Love All, Up Tight and Full Up – and a first volume of her poetry. All ten novels will be published in the new format over the following 24 months.

Welcome To Mollywood - a title created by the House of Arcati - will be issued in a variety of simultaneous formats: initial hardback publication, audio, e-book and video – all digital versions being available as a SmartPhone application and internet download. Molly herself will be filmed reading the whole book and this version too will be available as a download.

And following on from her success last year as a DJ alongside her daughter Sophie and granddaughter Carson, Beautiful Books will also release an album of music, chosen by Molly – the soundtrack to an extraordinary life.

BB describes Mollywood as "both a memoir and a new artistic beginning for this much-loved writer and artist. There will be appearances from her famous lovers – James Robertson Justice, John Mortimer, George Melly, Bo Diddley; stories of her drinking days with Francis Bacon at the legendary Colony; accounts of her friendships with Barbara Hulanicki of BIBA fame and fashion designer Zandra Rhodes; and throughout, a strong and individual voice which will delight her many fans and introduce her to a whole new audience."

As Arcatistes know, Molly is my fiancee and I can't tell you how delighted I am for her. Congratulations, Moll! And Beautiful Books has demonstrated tremendous vision.

I never thought I'd say that of a commercial publisher.

Molly has pulled off an astonishing deal.

It's admirable Madame has another string to her bow: The smarmy publicist 'Sidney Falco' pales into comparison with your promotional talents.

I'd quite like a hat like Molly's.

Is it a devil chef's hat? It would suit Kevin Spacey. Molly should make a special one for Kev!
