Thanks Yanna. Very Happy
The book is called"Beyond Brokeback Mountaln;the impact of a film"
It's been compiled from some of the thousands of posts which appeared on the Ultimate Brokeback Mountain Guide discussion forum over the last year.It's been a real labour of love and hopefully it goes some way to explain how the power of this film and the original short story changed lives.
Here is the cover.



As you can see it's beautiful. Very Happy So much love and effort has gone into it by a team of incredibly hard working volunteers.Finally after months of work,everything came together and it's now being printed.It will be coming out in early April and is available in hard back or paperback.There's a website about the project with lots of information at the link below.
Thank you,Kevin for allowing me to post this information.Much appreciated. Very Happy

Hello! Another visitor from the mountain! Smile

Last week Janie and I had the pleasure of meeting each other and I think she's brilliant. Very Happy She told me about this site and how she loves you guys here!
Janie was also very generous and gave me these...

I love them and love the other BBM work she's done.

I'm really looking forward to the book and I hope some of you Alexander-BBM fans like it too.

Jane Smile

Hi Jane!!!This is brilliant!! Very Happy Very Happy We'll have to get all the other Brokies over here to meet these wonderful Alexandrians.Now that would be a fusion worth seeing,wouldn't it?You bet!
We had the most wonderful day this week,didn't we?It's amazing how people can meet for the first time and talk none stop for hours and hours. Yanna and Alejandro know that already and the two Janes found it out this week.It was great!Jane is a wonderful person.
I'd like to show you what she gave me.All Brokies know that postcards are very,very significant and Jane made me a very special one as a reminder of the day.


Isn't that great!Thanks Jane,I love it! Very Happy
Good luck for tomorrow.
Janie.

I decided that Ennis needed a companion so I've given him a horse to keep him company.I think it has quite a knowing look. Cool
