|Author says she can't tell the whole Lennon story in three books|
[Posted by Dave Haber on Friday, 04/10/09 3:31 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
Jude Kessler, author of the only researched, historical novel on the life of John Lennon, Shoulda Been There, announced at the 35th Annual Fest for Beatles Fans in New Jersey last week that her Lennon trilogy will now be a five-book series.
"There is just too much detailed information to pack it all into three books," Kessler commented on-stage at the Friday night Author's Symposium. "Each book would end up being well over 1,000 pages. The Beatles did something significant and interesting every single day of '62. '63,and '64. What event would one cull?"
