BARRED FOR LIFE BOOK RELEASE EVENTS
Before I start talking about the upcoming events, I just want to mention that a few weekends ago a thief broke into my car near a very PUBLIC park in Philadelphia, and liberating both my laptop computer and the external hard-drive that had every single piece of BARRED FOR LIFE media saved. Needless to say, that was six years worth of information gathering, stolen. Things happen fast. While sad, forward I move. So...
As many of you now know, BARRED FOR LIFE is on the market. You might have a copy, or you might be waiting until one of the numerous release events so that you might just find some instant gratification by buying a copy from me. Well, whatever you wish, BARRED FOR LIFE will be on the move soon. Yes, the official release date was slated for April 1st, but we were so excited to finally get this epic book into the hands of those who preordered, that the mighty PM Press released it a bit early. By all accounts sales are doing very well, and in no time at all our suppliers in Europe have been getting a steady supply of books to both the UK and continental Europe. All of the necessary information for this, and other events, can be found on our FaceBook Fan Site

Barred For Life Exhibition + Author Signing presented by VANS - V Revolution, Manchester.
Friday, May 10th, 2013 This event is totally unique and more importantly - FREE.
The VANS team will be present giving away freebies, entering you in competitions and not to mention giving you details on how to be present at the official 'Barred For Life' aftershow party (Saturday 11th of May 6PM-9:30PM) which will be 'entry via wristband' type of affair, with a SOLID selection of bands playing and heaping more giveaways on you.
So bring your friends, enjoy some free adult beverages, check out the exhibition and listen to tales of Hardcore's most fierce offering that paved the way for every DIY band on the circuit.
LIMITED EDITION HARDCOVERS
A lot of you have been pushing me to get the hardcover editions on the market. Well, I am trying. The cover art is finished and everything is in place, except I still haven't found a crew to print the images. So, here is what we have going on. Long time scene artist, Brian Walsby (on the right), has happily contributed awesome image, while Jeremy Dean of House Industries has handed this brilliant image over to us (on the left). The aim is to have these bad-boys completed by May 1st for general sale instead of auction. We will also have a limited, limited, limited edition of 10 of these copies that are signed by the members of FLAG, and they will only really be available at the various events as part of a raffle to help pay our expenses.
So, thanks to you, BARRED FOR LIFE is doing very well. I thank you all kindly for your efforts.
