Dennis Wilson – The Real Beach Boy
***Revised and Expanded Edition***
We are happy to announce that the updated and expanded edition of Dennis Wilson – The Real Beach Boy is now in the final stages of editing. Soon we will be in the production/printing phase and by Fall/Winter 2013 this beautifully designed book will be ready to ship. The success and continued demand for the original edition of The Real Beach Boy published in April 2000 has driven prices to exorbitant levels sometimes reaching the $150 - $250 range. A dwindling supply of out of print copies cannot match the ever-increasing demand for Dennis’ most acclaimed biography. This year we are preparing to give Denny’s fans some news to celebrate! A decade of exhaustive research and concentrated work have resulted in a brand new expanded version with improved details, countless new stories, and dozens of previously unseen photos. The new version will honor the tone of the original book while taking a much deeper look into the life and times of the Real Beach Boy. It reveals Dennis’ incredible life more completely and clearly than ever before.
*A Special Offer*
In the spirit of “Kickstarter” and “Crowdfunding” we are offering a more personal approach to raising funds to offset some of our production costs. This is a direct appeal to those who have emailed and contacted us through the years with the request to keep you informed, updated and to let you know when the new book is finally ready. Well, we’re almost there. This is the final goal line push.
For any of my friends and loyal fans of Dennis who would like a very special limited edition version of the book, you can also be part of our production team and help us create the ultimate Dennis biography. We are looking for 100 individuals who would appreciate a limited edition (100 copies) very deluxe version of the book. This version will be signed and numbered, with a personal dedication to you, will include extra previously unpublished photos not in the retail version, and will include your name printed in the book’s production staff acknowledgements as part of our team that produced the definitive Dennis Wilson book (your name will appear in ALL copies of the book). You will also get a CD of rare Dennis Wilson interviews with Denny answering questions about the Beach Boys, his music, family and life, in his own voice. The CD will also include some rare musical snippets of DW live and in the studio. Add to that a DVD of the 2010 BBC TV documentary Dennis Wilson – The Real Beach Boy signed by the production staff. Your exclusive copy of the book will also feature signatures from several of Dennis’ closest friends and musical collaborators. This great package is limited to 100 people, and is being offered on a first reserve, first serve basis. Upon payment you will be given a priority number that will reserve your copy of the limited edition book and all of the extras, plus will allow you first notice of the planned release party/concert events and some other fantastic offers we are planning to celebrate Dennis and the book’s release (such as dinner with the author and special guests at Chez Jay’s). To summarize…for a pre-payment of $100 you will receive…
*Limited Edition book (signed, numbered, with exclusive extra photos and extra special signatures)
*Your name listed in the book’s production staff acknowledgements.
*Rare DW interview CD with rare DW music.
*Real Beach Boy documentary DVD signed.
*Priority notice of very special release party event and additional offers.
Once these 100 special book packages are reserved that’s it…only the retail version of the book will be available… and although it will be great! (List price $45.00) for a little more than double the money you will get an exclusive package that is nearly priceless.
