We’ve already written about “A Touch Of Stardust,” the latest historical novel from Kate Alcott, a pseudonym for Washington journalist Patricia O’Brien (

The premise is that an aspiring screenwriter from Fort Wayne, Ind. (Lombard’s hometown, of course) is hired as a publicist for David O. Selznick; she then in turn is hired as Carole’s personal assistant…at the time Selznick is making a little picture called “Gone With The Wind.” I haven’t yet read the book, but since Lombard is among the most vivid characters in all of Hollywood history — something most in the film industry would have vouched for while she was alive –– I’m sure her portrayal will delight (and have faith Alcott will get all the historical details right).

You can win one of 30 copies by going to and filling out some information; as of this writing, 136 people have submitted requests, but this giveaway has 16 days to go. Good luck!
