Kerry in town to sign new books tomorrow

Warrington Guardian: Kerry signs copies of the new book on Friday Kerry signs copies of the new book on Friday

KERRY Katona is back with her second autobiography - and she is promising not to pull any punches.

Still Standing is released this week and she will be coming home for a book signing at WH Smith in Golden Square at 4pm, tomorrow, Friday.

Published by Orion, Still Standing picks up from where her first autobiography, Too Much Too Young in 2006 left off.

Kerry, originally from Padgate who rose to fame in girl group Atomic Kitten, said: “Writing this book was really tough as it covers the period when I was at my lowest ebb.

“It’s been incredibly therapeutic though and I hope it will in some small way help inspire others who might be going through difficult times to keep fighting no matter what.

“But it’s not all tears – despite everything that has happened I've tried to keep smiling and learned to laugh at whatever life has thrown at me."

The story covers her triumph over drugs, bad men, medication, depression, weight battles, booze and divorce, according to the publishers.

Amanda Harris is publishing director of Orion non-fiction.

She said: “So much has happened to Kerry in the last six years. “She’s been pushed to the brink of total mental collapse but has rebuilt her life, piece by piece.

“Her incredible story is told with the humour, warmth and honesty we know and love Kerry for.

“She doesn’t pull any punches; this is Kerry, back to her fabulous best. Readers will laugh and cry along with her.

“It’s a fascinating read from the nation’s favourite come-back kid.”

"An autobiography is an account of the life of a person, written by its subject."

Celebrities effectively releasing their autobiography chapter at a time is one of the more obvious money-grabbing ploys these days.

Thing is, because people keep buying them, they'll keep doing it!

Has she read it ? :-)


Considering all the "drugs .....medication..... booze...", is it a bit like they say about the sixties and rembering/being there - if you can remember being Kerry Katatonic you weren't Kerry Katatonic?

I feel sorry for Kerry Katona and her bankruptcy. I know how she feels as I was made bankrupt last week. I never stood a chance, my opponent had hotels on Park Lane and Mayfair.

This is the world we live in, just guessing but i can imagine there being a huge crowd to see her. Love or hate the girl she has millions of followers,a music/pop career, had a No.1 record, Won I'm a Celebrity had her own reality show and more money most of us can only think about. As long as people buy into her she will be about for a long long time!

With an imagination like that her publishing agent ought to be writing books, not Katona...

All debts cleared by the end of 2011 (IIRC) but the order was not discharged due to a document submitted in 2009 by her bankruptcy official that has never been withdrawn.
