Help Publish Grandissimo: The First Emperor of Las Vegas

Ladies and gentlemen, I am so undeniably happy to share with you the immensely great news that Grandissimo : The First Emperor of Las Vegas is entering the final phases of production.

I've been lucky enough to have read a number of versions of Grandissimo over the last few years, watching it evolve from a historical biography of Jay Sarno to a tragicomic study on the essence self-made greatness as it dangles tenuously on the precipice of self-made disaster.

Nearly seven years since the project began, the hard part - globe trotting research, interviews and writing - has been completed and now the expensive part - indexing, proofreading and producing - is about to begun. My dear friend, fellow Vegas Gangster, internet mafiosi and upstanding member of the VT community Dr. David Schwartz is today asking for your help to help kickstart the completion of this book in time for release at the Vegas Internet Mafia Family Picnic.

The goal is simple - a mere $2,500 bucks - a goal we as a community should be able to erase immediately.

Please join me in Kickstarting Grandissimo: The First Emperor of Las Vegas.

Already up to 23 backers. This will be a very important book for all interested in Las Vegas. We're lucky to have Dr. David Schwartz.

done and done

Thank you! I really appreciate everyone who kicked in to get this started.

I went to add my contribution, but the goal has already been exceeded. Should/Can I still add my two cents?

yes!
