Don't give up faith, the book is coming soon, John is a great guy, it turned out to be much more than a challenge than expected, it was his first book and I think it took on more of a life of it's own, the money that was above and beyond the money needed was put into more pages of color pictures...I think we will be blown away, he's put a lot of time and energy into this and he wants it to be perfect, this project is very important to him and I know everyone will be very pleased with the results and well worth the wait...

cheers

The more you all talk this up, the more eager I get to see the finished results.

It will have an honored place on my bookcase ( once I have devoured the contents with too many late nights of course,) Very Happy

Just got an e-mail about how I want my name on the website and the book. Apparently it's going to printing soon.

Has anyone heard anything More about this? been a while since the last posting and today was looking at my reserved space for it.

Unfortunately, I missed seeing a listing for the Antenna TV marathon yesterday.

Hope everyone else enjoyed it.

Just received this email update...

Project Update #27: WHEN WE'RE SINGIN' The Partridge Family and Their Music by Johnny Ray Miller


Kickstarter

27
Time for the Countdown!!
Posted by Johnny Ray Miller (Creator)
Hi gang!
I'm ready to begin the final countdown with all of you, as we are now getting very close to the actual release date!
Some updates for you:
While the photo section has been done, the actual layout of the book, the design, was done in early June. BUT...
...we ended up about 50 pages over budget. So I have spent countless hours with our amazing editor, Donna Spencer, determining what we can do to bring the page count down a bit. After long discussions, rather than sacrificing pertinent information contained in the extra pages (which would have needed to be cut in order to fit), our designer is going to reformat the book, and lay it out all over again for the second time. I suspect this process will take about a week. Donna will be working on final edits this coming week before it goes to the designer, Kirk.
I'm going to begin sharing with you, a countdown to release, because I think it will be fun to share the excitement of the book's arrival, together. I know it has been six months of added wait time for you, but rest assured that the reasons lay in careful focus on detail, and the best collection of photos we could possibly come up with.
I will be back with you at least weekly from now until release, if not more frequently.
On another note, you have all been listed on the website as backers of this project, and I sent out a survey over a month ago asking for any corrections to your names, spellings, things like that. There are still several people who haven't responded, so if you would please go to the website and take a look at your names and make sure it is listed to your satisfactory. Any further edits have to be submitted by Tuesday of this week if we are going to make them.
Thanks again for your patience. I'll be back very shortly with a countdown!

Johnny

I can't find the list of the backers.... where is it ?

Since I didn't receive a survey or an email, I'm afraid my name won't be included.

Help!

On the top menu of the book website, click on "Kickstarter Backers". It's tiny print but the list is there! If your name is missing or incorrect, try sending a message through the "Contact" page. I did that once and got a quick reply.

Hope that helps!

I'm so looking forward to getting the book in my hands!

My Christmas will be very happy this year Very Happy

My sleep level, however, will drop as I will most likely stay up to late devouring every word in this book Laughing
