According to some sources, the new Sonny West book will be coming out but at this time, no specific details are available yet. Apparently, he tried to get a publisher before writing and finishing the book and he had an agent contact some publishers but it was turned down at that point in time.
Sonny West states; "The book will be published and that also at this time, the manuscript is not finished."
West started work on the follow-up book to "Elvis: What Happened?" with Marshall Terrill which is tentatively titled, "Taking Care of Business".
Regarding the new book, West said 'Elvis: What Happened?' covered mainly the years from 1970 to 1976 during Presley's downward spiral." The new book, he said, "will cover his years with Elvis from 1960 to 1976, the aftermath of "Elvis: What Happened?" to his thoughts on Elvis today."
West said the book will contain many stories that have never been told before, with many never seen before photos from West's personal collection and photos donated from the Russ Howe collection.
The original book, co-authored with Red West and Dave Hebler, sold more than 4 Million copies and was considered the best-selling original paperback when it was released in 1977.
