PUBLISHING NOTES: SUGAR RAY HAS A STORY TO TELL
Published August 6, 1997
In the N.Y. POST, Michael Shain reports that "at least three publishers are said to be in the hunt" for the rights to publish Sugar Ray Leonard's life story. Shain adds that Leonard has promised editors "two or three newsworthy revelations" in his book. Publishing sources say he is asking for bids to start at $1M (N.Y. POST, 8/6). NO "CASH FOR TRASH" FOR ALLEN: Chiefs RB Marcus Allen's autobiography "Marcus" will be released in September. The book is published by St. Martin's Press and will sell for $24.95. Allen: "The book is basically my experiences and my observations. ... I was not interested in a 'Cash for Trash.' There was a lot of money on the table for that, but I was not interested" (K.C. STAR, 8/6).
