It will be 240 pages and printed in both a hard and soft cover versions.

Make a pledge to bring this to reality!

I'm happy to pledge, Darren, and already have, but is there any chance of getting an ebook edition instead of a physical copy?

Well, it was $1 shy, so I added a dollar to my pledge. Now it will fund regardless.

Kickstarter has gone from counting the days left for funding to counting the hours, so if you want your copy at what looks to be a very good price, you have less than 54 hours left to pledge.

The book prices will be almost double of what the pledge rewards are when they go on sale at Amazon. It is due to their mark up. I will not make any money on the books when that time comes.

Less than two days left for the stretch goal and the Kickstarter!

Thank you all who pledged to make this book a reality!

Today's update covers book pricing and gives a glimpse of an abandoned movie theatre built in 1915.

11 hours to go. Closes about 8:30 EST tonight. When it eventually goes on sale via Amazo, it will be twice the price.

You are correct there.

As of this morning there are enough pledges to cover shipping books overseas and the graphic design of the cover. A little more is needed to print a quantity of them. (*edit - a quantity outside of the Kickstarter rewards.)

ALL pledges are welcome. Less than four hours left to go!

I will have enough printed for the Kickstarter rewards and need some for sale from my personal site. When those run out Amazon will have them at their mark up.
