Absolultey! I've shipped to the UK, Finland, Western Autstralia...here, there, and everywhere! It generally costs about $20 to ship it, so I'd knock $10 off the price of the book (instead of the $5 its on sale for now) to help defray that cost. So, if you're interested in paying $40 including the shipping, I could just send you a "bill" via PayPal, and we could do it that way. Just let me know.

The new project is slow because I'm speaking somewhere daily on Shoulda. This morning I'm off to speak to the Advertising Council. It takes so much time. But I'm trying to work about 10 hours a week on the new book...I'll do much more once the "new" has worn off of this one.

BTW, if you're going to be in Liverpool for Beatle Week, I'll be there with the book.

Thanks so much for your interest! I really apprecaite it and I'll work with you any way that I can.

Cheers!
Jude

The last Beatle book I read wasn't a biography but a fictional book called "Pepperland" about a girl who is trying to meet John Lennon so she can give him a letter her dead mother wrote him in 1964. It's set in 1980, so you can guess what happens.

Everyone gave it rave reviews but I wasn't too keen on it. The author's writing style was annoying  and the ending was disappointing.

Thanks, Bill. I'm sure all of you know Bill Harry. Not only is Bill one of the definitive Beatle authors of all time, but he's the original Mersey Beat editor and of course, John's dear friend. He was kind enough to write the foreword of my book for me, a debt which can never be repaid. If you haven't purchased his Beatles Encyclopedias (The Ultimate Beatles Encyclopedia, The John Lennon Encyclopedia, etc.) you MUST. They answer all your questions, brilliantly.

There's a brand new review of Shoulda Been There on whatgoeson.com, beatlesagain.com and in the 6 June issue of Goldmine. Hope to see some of you in Vegas for The Fest.

Jude ;)

Hi, all! New here, but thrilled to have found such a well-read bunch of Beatle people to hang out with! Having been on a couple of other sites, I was disappointed by the general lack of basic knowledge displayed by supposed fans! None of that nonsense here, I see.
Anyway, I'm currently reading Denis O'Dell's book. Needed to read it, as I hadn't already (that's the only reason I need to read a new Beatle book). Can't say I'm that impressed, and I can sort of see why he hadn't written it before, cos his involvements with the guys seem to go downhill from Hard Day's Night onwards. I mean, if he ever wanted a job again in films, he would have been wise to distance himself from Magical Mystery Tour at the time (now it's a cult classic, so no worries, but back then, it BOMBED big time!).
Next book to get out of library will be one by the Best family about the Casbah club (looks like a gorgeous memorabilia photo book).

I've finished the Denis O'Dell book. Now I NEED to see the Magic Christian! I love how one Beatle thing always leads you on to another. By the way, if anyone's interested, my all-time fave Beatle-related book is Mike McGear/McCartney's Thank U Very Much. It (along with the Beatles and the Liverpool Poets) inspired a soul-searching solo visit to Liverpool in my youth...

I have about 35 beatle books yet have only read about 6 of them! :S I don't get the time, but once my exams are finished I am going to continue with the anthology :D I think it is one of the best presented beatle books, bias as the beatle helped write it obviously haha!
