Thor and Lee...really happy to hear you have so much control over the design part of the book. Sounds like it will be challenging, yet rewarding to be involved in that creative process.

Selkie...you can always order a signed copy, and then if the opportunity presents itself at a later date, go to a book signing event to say hi to Thor and Lee!

Lee and Thor, besides Southern Cal, you HAVE to have a book-signing in NYC, where it all began! Would you please consider hosting it when the weather is warm and school is out? That way, a visit to NYC can be part of a family vacation. I'd also look forward to an adults-only pub crawl in the West Village. I'll even buy you both the 1st round! How does that sound? QZ doesn't allow you to edit or delete so you can hold me to my word. It's INDELIBLE!

Thor i've probably missed you commenting now because of the time zone but I am happy to see you back even for short while, I have missed you. I am so over the moon for you and Lee , I actually have butterfles. How exciting and wow you will both become celebrities....I wonder what Freddie would say? I bet he has a big big big smile on his face right now :)

Little Debbie is a little confused....do I donate to get a signed copy or do I wait for you to come to London .....I am assuming you will , you just have to lol. I don't really know how it all works.

If you come to London I will dress up as a doughnut or little debbie so that you know its me. Please don't call security ha ha

Take care

Katy hope everyone is ok following your news, I hate hearing about these awful events the us seems to suffer from time to time.

Doughnut,
The fastest way to receive a signed copy of the book would be the GoFundMe site." freddiemercury-bk-w-50 unseen pic" The goal has been increased to $ 4000.00. You still have plenty of time.

Thor- Busy and exciting times ahead- couldn't be happier for you and Lee. Bringing back to life those fond memories you shared must be very special and to share them with the rest of the world is beyond exciting for all here!!

Just an update on the Thor and Lee live; it's been sitting on 95% processing on YouTube for a little over an hour now, so no clue what time today it'll actually be up but it is going up today. Their voices can now be heard loud and clear. I'll add a link to the GoFundMe page and the latest update on their book in the description box. I usually keep commenting off on my videos because I don't have a ton of time to go through and monitor troll comments, but Thor, if yall want comments open, its totally up to you.


Be sure to subscribe to us on YouTube if you haven't already, so you can see it as soon as it drops tonight.

Thor, I'm excited to hear that you hope to be in Montreux. What a treat that will be for everyone.

Chevy, stay safe! That sounds scary.

@Thor What does the next 7 months entail? Is it edits and re-edits? I have no idea what a book takes. Good luck to you and Lee I thought it was just sent off for the time and sent back to you. Sorry Thor I wasn't aware it was such a big deal but I know Freddie is up there cheering you on because his time in New York with you and Lee was happy and he would want a happy book put out there about him. I think it's great! I can't wait to get my copy. I hope you stop in from time to time. You ever need anything we are all here for you.

Thor...between finishing the book, future book signings, and maybe even a trip to Montreux, it sounds like the next year and a half will be extremely busy for you guys! You mentioned before having arthritic knuckles...maybe you can just sign the books with your first name...kind of like Cher! LOL

Chevy...wow, half the town underwater...sounds frightening. Between flooding and tornadoes, so much bad weather all over. Hope everyone is okay, including the people in your neck of the woods, Katydyd.

I just returned from a great concert by a group called "Dallas String Quartet". They perform all over the country playing a wide range of classical and modern music. Loved the show, especially when they played Bohemian Rhapsody, which sounds great on the violin!

Will be going to see Marc Martel perform with the Boston Symphony Orchestra at Tanglewood in Massachusetts next month. Really looking forward to that show.

Rainbow, I agree first name definitely.I would hate to sign my whole name I never liked my name much anyway.Its rare noone had it when I was a kid.As for the flooding I live in a small town and the one bar got swept down the river.The only thing saving us is I live on top of a mountain
