On February 27th via Facebook Mr. Quintanilla announced he completed the final chapter for a book he's been writing about Selena! He's said over the years during several interviews that he wanted to write a book because so many of them were written by people who never interviewed Selena, they didn't know her and weren't authorized. There are 2 books that aren't so much biographies but were written by people who did know Selena and recount their time with her but aren't full biographies. To Selena with Love, by her husband Chris Perez and Selena Su Vida Despues De Su Muerte by Cristina Castrellon. The first details Chris' life with Selena during their courtship and marriage, the second is by a woman who worked with Selena in Mexico, she was a reporter. This one was given a lot of negative press because she details seeing a psychic after Selena's death and details her experience and said she spoke to Selena. Her family doesn't believe in psychics so if you skip the last few chapters it's a great book, it details some behind the scene concert happenings and her personal relationship with Selena and how happy Selena was with her life but also the occasional setback. I personally am very excited to read Mr. Q's book! He was there for her whole life and I'm sure has some great stories that we might not have heard yet.


Here is the original text from Mr. Q's page along with the photo above that he posted. The book should be released later this year!

"Today I finally finished the last chapter of my book that I have been writing for the last few months Nancy De Los Santos was the ghost writer that helped me write the Book. Nancy was a co-producer on the "SELENA" movie and is from Los Angeles Ca. Since my daughter Selena died I was wanting to write a book. The public might not be aware that there are about 21 unauthorized books written about Selena and none of the writers ever interviewed Selena. And I feel that the most ugly book was written by Telemundo's Maria Celeste Ararras the woman for reasons which I can't understand took sides with the woman who killed Selena. My family and I and Chris Perez know exactly what happened, as l mentioned non of the writers or even Maria Celeste ever interviewed Selena. I will release the book later this year.
