A new book entitled "Inside Graceland: Elvis' Maid Remembers" is due for release soon. The book is written by Written by Nancy Rooks and co-written by Jim Cox. The book tells the story of what it was like to work for Elvis, and to be at Graceland from 1967 through 1977 and beyond.
The manuscript was based on a compilation of notes she kept during the time she worked for Elvis. She has watched the endless stream of garbage being put out by so many "Elvis experts" and finally decided to tell, in plain language, and in a loving way, what it was like to work for the most famous entertainer in the world.
From her unique perspective of seeing him in his everyday unguarded moments, she presents her story of what he did in his spare time, of cooking for him, of being there just to talk when he wanted to "shoot the breeze" with someone.
There is nothing at all unflattering in her story, quite the contrary, in fact. She relates many stories regarding his generosity and compassion, his humor, and his being, in so many ways, a down-to-earth human being.
Her love for him, and what he did for her in so many ways, shines through in the book. She relates many wonderful everyday stories of events that took place at Graceland, both humorous and sad. She relates what happened the day Elvis died, as well as the next few days leading up to the funeral. It tells the true story of what it was like being "Inside Graceland."
