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!

What a lovely message from Ray and Dana Coe (latest donors). Ray was an unforgettable former patient of mine from 1985 when I worked in Physical Rehabilitation. Ray was a Marine (Semper Fi) who had sustained an unfortunate brain injury. He was delivered to us in a coma and slowly came back to life. It was so rewarding to see his "new" first words, first movements and finally, walking. Overall, he made about a 97% recovery. We became friends outside of the hospital. He moved back to Michigan, got a job, became a part-time competitive body-builder and eventually met and married his wife, Dana. I have not seen Ray in many years. We now are back in touch since he found this GoFundMe site and now has my new phone number, e-mail address and communication has renewed. What a generous donation from them both. Thank you!

The long wait to hear any more positive news makes me quite impatient. Hang on everyone, I know you are all waiting to hear the news that a publishing contract has been signed as well! So are Lee and myself! We will all wait together which is better than waiting alone!
