Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me

This is a discussion on Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me within the R. Kelly News & Announcements forums, part of the R. Kelly Discussion category; Why didn't the radio hosts on WCGI ask Kellz about the book during the interview? Maybe, it's pushed back?...

    Thanks for the info.

    ...Then we have to wait several months more...
    That sucks, but hey, as long as it does get released, I can't complain
    We gotta pray that the project itself won't get scrapped.


    Personally, I hope the book gets some attention of its own.
    If it's released around the same time as when BP and Sparkle soundtrack drops, it wouldn't likely to happen.

    It started with this site: Soulacoaster: The Diary of Me: R. Kelly, David Ritz: Books | chapters.indigo.ca reporting that the book will be out next week on Nov. 15 and then it started spreading to websites like Rolling Stone and Picthfork.

    R. Kelly's Memoir Soulacoaster Is Not Coming Out Next Week. And Maybe Not At All?

    This isn't a surprising development, but it's an unfortunate one. There seems to be some unexplained drama with the R. Kelly life-changer Soulacoaster: Diary of Me, the cover of which made the rounds this morning. Online bookseller Indigo has the title listed for pre-sale, along with the release date of next Tuesday, November 15. But Soulacoaster has been pulled off Amazon with the ominous "We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock" disclaimer. And the project's co-author David Ritz, a celebrity autobiographer who not only released books with Grandmaster Flash, Ray Charles, and Tavis Smiley (plus Snoop from The Wire!), but famously co-wrote "Sexual Healing" with Marvin Gaye, confirmed via email that the title wouldn't be released next week.

    First announced back in December 2009, R. Kelly's memoir was scheduled for early 2011 release on Tavis Smiley's SmileyBooks. "I'm writing this book as Robert, not R. Kelly," read the Trapped in the Closet savant's quote in the original 2009 press release. "I'm tired of being misunderstood. I will show you the tears, fears, and sweat. I will open my heart and reveal the good in my life as well as all the drama. I want to tell it like it is."

    The autobiography's mission seems to have shifted since then, going from heart-opening tell-all to mass-produced scrapbook. From Indigo's preview copy:

    Kelly shares his life story through episodic tales and exclusive color photographs, exploring his meteoric rises and sudden falls. From the crippling learning disorder that rendered him unable to read or write, to the teacher/mentor who prophesized that his destiny was in music, not basketball, we follow his evolution from Chicago street performer to struggling L.A. musician and beyond. Kelly reveals his hard-won ascent to superstardom and his battle to move forward after legal and personal ordeals that threatened to destroy his life. Now back at the top, Kelly recounts the surprising twists and turns that have taken him to new heights of maturity and artistry. Part memoir, part keepsake, Soulacoaster unlocks the door to R. Kelly''s story as only he can tell it, promising his fans an intimate and unforgettable ride.
    Meanwhile, Hay House imprint SmileyBooks, also responsible for Cornel West titles, appears to have withered into near-oblivion. (The publishing arm's standalone site has been absorbed into www.tavistalks.com; the PR contact's email account is no longer active.) Indigo has Soulacoaster listed as a hardcover Hay House release--strange bedfellows considering that the publisher is known for gifting the world with "self-help," "transformational," and "inspirational" projects.

    As far as we can tell, there's been little promotion for the "diary," even though it was supposed to come out sometime next week. We've contacted Hay House for comment; Ritz declined to offer any other information.

    In any case, this is all very sad. What magnificence must lie between those covers?

    Know anything else? Get at us.

    If in doubt - Ask Ann.

    On a serious note though, we were aware that it was pushed back so no need to pay attention to the late information from these sources. The last 1 was quite in depth, but overall just a collage of previous knowledge we were aware of, so we should just rely on the info which is given first hand to the forum (from our various sources who will remain anonymous).

    Rolling Stones, Pitchfork, and the rest of them can go fish.
