Great news! This morning I received a signed contract from Buckwheat's son, Bill Thomas. He will supply the material on his dad, and I'll be writing the book on one of the true icons of film. This is very exciting for me. Bill and I talked about getting Eddie Murphy to do the foreword - who knows if we can get to him, but Bill is all for the idea. I'm really looking forward to doing this book!
Only last month I made an agreement with Allan Reed's son to do a book on his dad, the voice of Fred Flintstone. Reed wrote about 60 pages worth of autobiography, which I've been typing up. It's going to be a more slender book than some of my others, but if I can get it to the size of Joan Davis, I'll be very happy.
