‘Cult of Truland’ Offers Inside Look at Celebrity Journalism

tCot-BookCover-FINAL (250 x 386)The first release from Glowing Sand Media is “The Cult of Truland,” a satirical novel offering an insider’s look at the world of celebrity and celebrity journalism.

Written by veteran journalist Kevin Brass, “The Cult of Truland” tracks the “scandals, crimes and lustful relationships of paparazzi icon Jake Truland, a true hero of the post-Kardashian age.” A mysterious chain of events puts Jack in the spotlight and creates a media frenzy that spins out of control.

Part satire, part mystery, part celebrity expose, “The Cult of Truland” is a page turner that has drawn comparisons to Elmore Leonard and Carl Hiaasen.
“It’s meant as a fun read,” Mr. Brass said. “But it also deals with very real issues about celebrity and celebrity media, as well as our obsession with fame.”

This is the first novel by Mr. Brass, a veteran feature writer and columnist for the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and a wide variety of publications. His analysis and commentaries on media trends have been featured in the Los Angeles Times, San Diego Magazine and the Austin Chronicle.

Mr. Brass also has a long history of covering Hollywood, movies and celebrity, including lengthy stints with People Magazine and “Access Hollywood,” the nightly entertainment news show.
