Thank you for supporting BOARDWALK PLAYGROUND

After 28 days, my Kickstarter campaign to publish Boardwalk Playground has wrapped up. Thanks to the generosity and support of 58 backers, I raised the funds I needed to cover the production costs of my next book.

What’s next? I have had the book proofread, and have laid out the photos. Right now it is being indexed while I do another round of proofing. If things go according to plan, I will be able to upload a print-ready file within 3 weeks, so that I will be able to meet my October publication date. There should be plenty of books available at VIMFP on October 17.

Thank you to everyone who has helped me get this far. I wish I had the words to express just how much your support means to me right now–it means a lot.

Boardwalk Playground Kickstarter is live!

I have launched my latest Kickstarter campaign, Publish Boardwalk Playground. I am seeking funding to help me publish my new book, called Boardwalk Playground: The Making, Unmaking, & Remaking of Atlantic City. It’s the culmination of a long dream for me.

You can visit the Kickstarter page to see the project video (mostly me having fun with goofy captions) and check out the rewards I am offering to backers. If you’d like to learn more about the book and maybe even read a few sample chapters, I encourage you to visit the Boardwalk Playground book website.

Thank you to everyone who has backed the project! I met my funding goal on the first day, but am still accepting backers to facilitate my stretch goals, which include free stuff (postcards, bookmarks) and possibly t-shirts. If I get enough money, I will look into launching an ad campaign when the book comes out.

 

What is Grandissimo?

This is a book project that I’ve been working on for several years. It’s the story of the man who I believe to be the single most influential figure in Las Vegas casinos in the 1960s and 1970s, but who unfortunately not many people know about.

I’m substantially finished the book, and hope to publish it later this year.

Until then, I’m using this space to let people know about the book.
