    I actually remember reading a paper back copy from a long time ago from the library. It's ok, but I would like some thing a bit more realistic. I actually remember reading a paper back copy from a long time ago from the library. It's ok, but I would like some thing a bit more realistic.

ETA February 2011: Publication date now anticipated to be in 2012, according to Amazon. ETA September 2010: Amazon now lists this book as 'currently unavailable' with an April 2009 publication date and the title back as Between a Rose and a Thorn and has deleted all cover artwork and previously set publication details. The ISBN previously connected to the title appears now defunct. God-damnit; it's like the publication run from hell, and I am tormented by curiosity. When does Michaels' new show start up again? Next month? Cannot. Wait. May 2010: I have such morbid curiosity for the trainwreck that this book promises to be. Following the publication process has been a experience in and of itself. I first heard adverts for it when it was gearing up for an April 2009 release; now it's scheduled for release in February 2011. I've seen records dating back to 2006 regarding this project as a filmed concept, records which state that the writing began on the project a good couple of years before that. The title had been Between a Rose and a Thorn when I first heard of it, but now Amazon has it listed as Roses and Thorns — but the accuracy for that information is rather questionable, as Amazon also gives a project description that refers to the filming of Rock of Love 2 as current: the show had completed airing in April 2008. When this was a concept to be filmed, Michaels was set to have a role (link), but don't worry. The arrangement had been: "I'm not going to play the star. I'm going to play the personal assistant who watches this guy's life." Oh, hee.

    I wonder if the release date is incorrect on this book. Update Dec 2011--Ok I just noticed the release date changed from 2011 to 2014... annoying. Maybe he's got some things to add that have happened in the past year. ;) I wonder if the release date is incorrect on this book.
