I shed them when they become impatient with the babying
'Taking Care of Beaulieu'.
So, the publisher tends to make more because unless one is selling in the millions, the royalty dollars doesnt really add up to much. The publisher's cut is much much bigger, and they don't need to sell millions to gain from it. There for, in an average good run, from good or bad publicity, it will benefit the publisher more. It will sell just enough to boost their numbers but probably not enough for the author to gain from it.
My comment, "All the money", is a bit exagerated but i guess it displays my dislike for how unbalanced the industry is. Artists tend to get the shaft, though they are the ones creating.
Anyway, this is just a speculation and now you know more than you wanted to know! lol!
Imagine you met and fell in love with your Guardian angel. Now, what if that angel turned out to be, Elvis Presley? Impossible, that's what Samantha Bennett thought before her life underwent a King-sized change. Join the angelic series that started with Eternal Flame, and more recently Dream Angel, written for Elvis fan's, by an Elvis fan. "Let's pretend he just didn't go together"~ Patricia Garber.
In the first part of her absorbing interview with EIN, among other things Alanna talks about:
her family life
how she became a writer
the importance of both Gladys Presley and Jesse Garon Presley in Elvis' life
Elvis' early relationships with women
how 'complicated grief' affected Elvis
the 'psycho-sexual' Elvis
the beginning of Elvis' demise and how it affected his relationships with the opposite sex
Also, for a more balanced review than Elvis Australia, check out EIN's review of Baby, Let's Play House:
I understand now how the publisher will be making ALL the money on this book. It seems to be two-fold: the publisher's upfront cut and the belief that this will probably not be a high selling book resulting in minimal royalties for the author.
And I agree - I think artists in all genres face the same thing.
Commercialization can both help and hurt.
Lamar said something similar, I think...
well where does everyone think Lisa was when he was sleeping all day? then he gets up and he has business to attend to, a bit of free time. she got to stay up late right, but he had friends around to. not always the best place for a child, around a bunch of men. so she had to entertain herself and play with other children on Graceland. not saying they didn't have some wonderful times, some quality time. just saying that it was not a lot of time one on one.
I just think the business of tending to a child was always the women's job in his mind. so many of the women on Graceland, his girlfriends, relatives, cooks, maids attended her in a motherly fashion.
Elvis was complexed and interesting but I think the book (from what I have read about it) dramatizes a little too much. sure he was effected by his mother's death and his twins, but I'm not sure I would blame that completely. I believe in nurture and nature combined. some things are learned and some are just born in. besides he didn't have to get help. how many people stop making exuses, look with in and help themselves when they love people and know they are hurting them?
I love the man, but come on, he was not stupid and knew what he was doing. sorry, I understand, but over thinking it all gets old.
and most male/female relationships have many different dynamics. the are meant to fullfill different needs. my husband is every bit a friend, fatherly protective type, and lover. I just don't think it is weird and I've seen that be normal for very successful relationships.
disagree with me but I simply think elvis got bored in relationships and needed newness to get "excited". one a relationship got mundane, he went on to another. he was a restless person who needed constant new stimulus and excitement. and he could get it when he wanted it with any women when it happened. no women can compete with keeping a relationship from going comfortable after a while.
not a bad thing in him it just was because of the way he was and the situations of his life.
exactly donut, if people dug deep into all our brains, no doubt they could come up with any number of weirdities! just glad I wasn't famous!!
Well to me, "not paying Lisa much attention" meant just that. I didnt expect him to be with her 24/7, but the quote implies even when he could have spent time with her, he couldnt be bothered. That, I dont believe.
