  1. Cover Artwork For Sir Roger Moore's 'My Word Is My Bond'

    Cover artwork for Sir Roger Moore’s My Word is My Bond: A Memoir has now been revealed at Amazon.co.uk.

    Following the initial announcement of the book back in October 2007, this memoir/autobiography is scheduled to be released on 2 October in the UK and 4 November in the US.

    The book will be ghostwritten by Gareth Owen, Sir Roger’s personal assistant. He said: ‘Turning 80 is a milestone, a time to reflect. It’ll be a frank and fun book, but he’s not interested in digging the dirt.’

    My Word is My Bond will be published by Michael O’Mara Books in the UK and HarperCollins in the US.

    The official blurb:

    The quintessential suave hero, Roger Moore has had an extraordinary career that has spanned seven decades, from early television to the golden age of Hollywood and on to international superstardom.

    Dashing, handsome and every inch the archetypal English gentleman, he is unforgettable as The Saint, as Lord Brett Sinclair in The Persuaders! and, of course, as James Bond, making seven blockbusting films as arguably the most debonair of the 007s.

    For the first time, Roger shares his recollections of playing some of the world’s most famous roles alongside a host of legendary stars. With myriad stories from his personal life–from his childhood in London and experiences during the Second World War, to the happy and turbulent times in his later life. Along with anecdotes about his encounters with the stars and his wonderful memories from the heyday of Hollywood, My Word is My Bond is as frank, funny and disarmingly charming as the legend himself.
