Hahaha now THIS is funny!!

Okay, okay!!

Richard signed off on the book with us Wednesday night! @Mike Cidoni Lennox and I are both relieved, and very excited! This has been a 3-year labor of love, as we more or less threw the kitchen sink into this project, which involved many, many long days (and some evenings) with Richard.

Back to you Mr. Lennox :laugh:

I received an email from Amazon that it is shipping the end of October now. Is that correct Chris?

The original October 5 date has been pushed back slightly, that is correct. An official press release will be launched within the next week or two at the latest, which will include the updated date of release.

Simultaneously, an announcement will be made here, both on the home page as well as in the forum.

I have books and movies from TWO YEARS ago I haven’t read or watched because this has been all-consuming.
“Maverick” sounds glorious.
But they have to wait until the ...
Oh, I don’t think we can say anything about the other stuff yet.
Right, Chris?

Congratulations, Chris & Mike!

After Richard signed off, I hope all 3 of you toasted your project with some champagne (or something similar)! :tiphat:

I note that the new pub date is a bit closer to Richard's birthday than the original...and Chris & Mike are delivering the ultimate Christmas present to us all with plenty of time for us to buy copies for that portion of our personal friends who need to be re-enlightened about the greatness of Karen and Richard!

Thanks to both of you for your dedication and hard work--and here's hoping that thousands of new Carpenters fans will be created as a result of your labor of love!

You couldn't be more spot on there, Don! :)

Actually, Princeton Arch Press (our publisher) pushed the date back due to a conflict with a couple of other biographies that are set for release early October.

These kinds of books certainly DO make nice Christmas gifts, and Mike and I only hope that ours will be regarded as such.
