Well, we’ve made some great headway in the first half of this campaign. And all the early supporters should have received their link to download the advance preview of Chapter 13 from Kelly Garni: Angels With Dirty Faces. We want to send a HUGE thank you to the folks that have given us the great feedback on the chapter and have expressed how they’re even more excited for the rest of the book. As we are currently formatting the text and photo layouts to standard book form, we are currently looking at nearly 400 or more pages of insight only Kelly Garni could provide to the world of Randy Rhoads, Kevin DuBrow and the formation of Quiet Riot…and that is before adding the pics!
We only have 12 days left and a little ways to go to hit our target of $8000 to help expand the number of books printed within the first pressing.
To help make that push we’ve restructured an overlooked reward level and made it our “Best Value” overall and it is a limited run of 100.
A $65 pledge will get you ALL of the following:
A Signed Advance copy of Kelly Garni: Angels With Dirty Faces (This is a guarantee you will receive a book out of the first pressing and nearly a month before it is available to the rest of the public in October)
PLUS an exclusive 11X17 museum quality print of a custom painted portrait by renowned artist Peter Mera. Inspired by one of Kelly’s favorite pictures showing Randy & Kelly as kids, this portrait has been beautifully painted and inked by an amazingly artistic hand. These exclusive prints will be handcrafted and made one at a time using the highest quality archival inks and printed on a heavyweight “fine art” archival paper stock. Each print will be hand signed and numbered by the artist. They will also be custom stamped using typeset letter press. These prints will ONLY be available through this Kickstarter project. You can see an “in progress” photo and see the actual painting within our intro video on this project’s Kickstarter home page.
PLUS you will receive a digital/ebook version of Kelly Garni: Angels With Dirty Faces (which will be released and delivered in Dec)
AND your name (or someone of your choosing) will be included on a special “Dedication” page at the front of the book. Yep, you will actually have your name IN THE BOOK!
This is the most bang for your buck package we can put together! There are only 98 of these left at this time and once they’re gone they’re gone.
All the other packages will still be available throughout the campaign. We know that times are tough all over and wanted to remind everyone that even a pledge of $1 – $49 gets your name in a special “thank you” section within the book and a $50 or more pledge gets your name in the special “Dedication” section at the front of the book.
Thanks again to everyone that has backed this project so far. Thank you for your continued support and encouragement. This book IS coming out. This book IS everything you’d want it to be and more. Let’s make this final 12 days count and help expand this book to the worldwide audience it deserves
