7 days LEFT to pre-order book


Recommended Posts

I thought I'd count down the days 'til the pre-sale cut-off. Everyone who wants to get in on the lower price, guaranteed copy and free RARE audio/video files should make sure they get their orders in NOW.

After June 30, I will only take names (order forms will no longer be online!) for a STANDBY list for the autographed/numbered hardcovers if any are still available after the publication date of July 31, 2004. Those copies (if any) will be sold at the full price of $75 plus postage.

Soft-covers should be in ample supply at their full price of $24.95 plus postage.

I just saw the first proofs from the printer and it looks GREAT. The final page count is 432! A last-minute Express Mail package of previously unpublished photos from Eric's personal collection and a recently discovered treasure-trove of photos from Cyrus Erie's original studio recording sessions in New York City caused the bump in pages. I also decided to go with full cloth bindings that have gold imprinting on both the front and spine. (Check some books on your shelf and see how many are full cloth with imprinting on both the front *and* spine!) Everything we add costs more, sometimes LOTS more -- but as I've already said, I'm not looking at this book project as a money-making venture. I'd like to break even, but more than that, I want to produce an EXCELLENT book!

I've already read the book five or six times, editing and catching errors here and there. I enjoy it more each time, which means it certainly holds up to repeat reading :-) In other words, it's about half the size of Clinton's book with at least twice the content.

Now I've got to mop up the drool on my keyboard!

Sounds like Eric is getting into the excitment of it all by sending a load more photos to you. Does he get his own personalized autographed copy of the book? It must be odd to have someone write a book about you. He certainly must agree with all the content if he's willing to contribute so much to the book. At least we'll know it's really his story, not just a journalist's version of events. You're kind of Eric's Andrew Morton, huh Bernie?

Even though Eric has given his blessing to the book, and it's his story, this is not an autobiography. All of the events are not told in Eric's voice. Ken and I tell the story in a narrative and all of the people involved (Eric, former bandmembers, managers, songwriting partners, friends, family, producers, record company execs, roadies, etc.) give their take on the events. Taken together we think it paints a pretty faithful picture of what happened.

Tony c,

Remember quite awhile ago the Cajun singer was in the news, Doug Kershaw, for having sexual relations with chickens Or hens.

This is going way back.

My mother told me about that.

I was surprised and thought, this guy is sick. Or is he sane?

I guess it beats raping woman.
