Hey guys look, it's an update about that PIXIES book!

Posted by Sean T. Rayburn (Creator)

Hi all!

So sorry we've been quiet with the updates lately. Aaron Tanner and I have been hip-deep in production land, Aaron putting things in to book-format, and I have been traveling all over gathering material. In the last few weeks I've met with band members, family, and friends, going through archives, scanning photos and negatives, and basically trying to find a way to keep all this stuff for myself. Check out some of the images at the bottom of this update!

We've decided to extend the opportunity to purchase the book. So many people contacted me having trouble with Amazon Payments, or having not found out about the Kickstarter campaign in time, so now the final chance anyone has to pre-order the book is July 31st. This is the LAST CHANCE to get your name in the book, and the LAST CHANCE to get the book signed by Black Francis and Aaron and myself. So if you have yet to pre-order or know someone who wants to, head on over to http://pixiesbook.com/purchase in the next few days, as this is the last chance to get yours.  Payment processing is all handled through PayPal. Make sure you pick the correct shipping option, and include the name to be included in the book.

Production will be wrapping up in August and then the final copy goes to print. We are on schedule to ship out in November!

That is all for now, we will post again in a few weeks!

      You mention in your update that people should select the name they want printed on the book when purchasing the it. I purchased my book long ago but was never given an option to select the name I want on the book. How can I do this? Thanks for clarifying and for this great initiative.

      Hello,
      I ordered the package with two books. I was sent an email saying that people who order that package can get a second name in the book. There is one name besides mine that I would like in the book. Where do I send that to?

      Thanks,
      -Erin

      Sean,
      You mention that people are having trouble with amazon payments. I was wondering if you could confirm my payment for me, as I am having trouble finding the e-mail. I may have accidentally deleted it. Just want to make sure that I have my copy reserved!!! I appreciate your time, not to mention the book!!!
      Thanks,
      Christopher Childress
