If you have not already read in Recent News, we are proud to announce the launch of the Official Michael Jackson Tribute Portrait Book, after several months of discussion and planning.
We see this exciting project as an extension of David’s beautiful portrait; we are all joined together with Michael through our love for him by dots, and so we shall continue to be united the same way by our written words and art.
Michael has and still is inspiring and changing the lives of fans from around the world. Each of us has a story, poem, letter, tribute, artwork or special memory of him to share that stands testament to the effect he has had on all our lives.
Without him, this Portrait would never have been envisioned. Without the Portrait, the voices of our hearts and Michael’s, would never have found a home on this web page. Without the voices of our hearts, the Book would never have been realized. Through the connection we have with Michael, The Tribute Portrait and each other, we have witnessed an outpouring of words and art written and created by fans, that have come straight from the heart. This will make up the content of the Book and will set it apart as something unique and special.
We offer all of you an opportunity to submit a piece for possible inclusion. You do not have to be a writer or a professional artist to make your offering, just a fan who feels that Michael touched your life in some special way. Below you will see a few examples of pieces that will be included in the book.
Initially, the book will be offered for purchase as an e-book at an affordable price. All proceeds will go to the funding of the Tribute Portrait, and additional proceeds, to a charity that Michael himself wanted to establish. In the event that the book generates enough interest, we would however, consider the possibility of publishing a hard copy.
The deadline for all submissions will be December 24th and can be made to myself, Valmai Owens, and my co-editor, Linda Higgins, at Editor@MichaelJacksonTributePortrait.com
We have an opportunity, through the portrait and this book to let the world see and read the message and legacy of Michael Joseph Jackson.
(If you want to be notified of new articles I post send me an email at editor@michaeljacksontributeportrait with subscribe in the subject line. I will then contact you when something has been posted.)
