THE PROJECT: SPECIAL COLLECTORS LIMITED EDITION
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and see what we have. I am James "Buster" Douglas, I am the former World Heavyweight Boxing Champion. In 2009, I had the pleasure of co-authoring a book with journalist, Tony Reynolds. He and I put together a book of stories, personal pictures and ended with some recipes that we both liked.
I was proud to team up with Tony for the fight against Diabetes.
We are in the process of updating the book and decided you should be involved. This is a SPECIAL COLLECTORS LIMITED EDITION of the book that Oprah.Com called an "Amazing weight loss story."
BUSTER'S BACKYARD BAR-B-Q, KNOCKOUT DIABETES DIET
It is time to update the book with a NEW 2nd EDITION> New personal photographs, and some more recipes! Hmmm tasty. These are photos from our time on the road promoting the book and insider notes.
I expect GREAT & BIG things to happen with this new more personalized Collectors Limited Edition.
YOU will allow us to fund this project without a BIG Publisher. No filters, just what we want to say.
We are making a SPECIAL COLLECTORS LIMITED EDITION for those of you who want the THRILL of competition, or just want a valuable collectible.
This book is an Inspirational true story and an Informational book. Former World Heavyweight Boxing Champ, James "Buster" Douglas shares what it is like to live (and nearly die) from diabetes, and co-author Tony's perspective live with someone who had the disease, and did die from complications due to diabetes.
James "Buster" Douglas was the image of perfect health when he beat Mike Tyson. But after years of abusing his body, he nearly died and was in a coma. Listen to his story in his own words.
Tony, on the other hand, grew up with a father who was a medical practitioner, but who lacked the skills, or simply refused to heed the warning and eventually died from complications due to diabetes.
These stories are here to give you and others hope they can live with this disease.
USE OF FUNDS:
That is the minimum we need to get this revision completed.
WHAT HAPPENS AT $80,000?
Our ultimate goal is $80,000 to complete a full run of the Hardcover Limited Edition copy of the book.
The money will be used for professional publishing services such as professional editing services, in some cases hard cover binding. And it will be used for professional public relations and marketing to promote the book including press releases, ordering promotional copies, travel expenses for talk show interviews in NYC and Los Angeles, etc.
Thank you in advance for your support. Even if you cannot support us financially at this time, you can help by spreading the word about the project to make it possible.
