I am trying to publish a book with over fifty never-before-seen photos
of Freddie Mercury's time in New York City (1981 to 1983) and in London visits(1986-1991). Also, I have written chapters that recount Freddie, the down-to-earth, generous and caring man enjoying himself with his close American friends (of eleven years) right up to his unfortunate death. In his real life, Freddie enjoyed fitting in and just being "one of the boys" Early 1980's New York provided this for him.
The book is finished and being reviewed by a literary agent. Publishing this book as a "coffee table book" will cost a good amount of money.
This book is timed with the opening of the new docu-drama "Bohemian Rhapsody" which is sure to reignite interest in everything Queen and everything Freddie.  A free, autographed copy by the authors  (I have a co-author who was also part of our group of close friends in New York and beyond) will be provided for any donation over $50.00. This book will definitely sell, but a refundable donation (once the book is published, available and selling) can be provided.

The title of the book will be "Freddie Mercury in New York - Don't Stop Us Now!"

I thank any donators in advance who might help us to make this project become a reality. YOU are the Champions!

Hello All,
Good News. At first I was going to ask all of our donor friends and many of the GOOD, Queen-Zone people we have remained in contact with to contact this lady for words of support. Then after the initial excitement, I read the last line which stopped me from doing so. Can’t give out name information YET. This is our first really good response and is another step in this process. Thank you all for your constant support for our project.
Love Ya All,
Thor and Lee

So, 36 good-natured souls and fans of Freddie-who know that their money is safe.
1 negative fool who casts us as money hungry thieves willing to disgrace our great and respected friend (if he even was our friend). Perhaps he thinks the picture of all of us in Houston is photoshopped). Obviously, he never read my first thread and probably only skimmed through the second. Too bad for him that the goal is almost reached and donors know the truth.

Oh and finding a decent publisher has been taking longer than I thought, but we have a couple of prospects...each company wants at least 5-8 weeks for an answer. We had no idea. So the goal of having the book ready by the premier of "Bohemian Rhapsody" (in the US on Nov. 2nd) will most likely not happen. Hopefully we will hear some good news soon. Someone from QueenZone.com reminded me that J.K. Rawlings was denied publishing up to 50 times.

Well, Lee and I are very thankful that so many have showed so much support, kindness and generosity. There seems to be a lull right now which is understandable, but an additional $375.00 from first time donors and our goal will have been reached. Again, thank you all.
