Tribute book for Chris Cornell

The sudden death of music legend Chris Cornell birthed a flood of grief and confusion. In the days that followed, an outpouring of love and admiration also surfaced. Fans and friends posted tributes, stories, memories and poems. So many expressions of love, so many touching, and sometimes funny, stories.

As I read through these posts, sharing their grief, I felt a need to do something. These expressions from the people who loved him were precious. It would be a shame for them to all drift off into cyber space as time moved on. The idea for a project was born.

I am compiling a book of these remembrances and tributes. Each piece is being used with the expressed permission of the writer. The response has been overwhelmingly supportive. My goal is to gather 100 contributors, or more, and in only a couple of days I have passed the half-way mark.

The ebook that will result from this project will be free. A print version is also planned, which will be sold for the minimum cost possible. This is a project of love.

If you are interested in submitting a piece to this book, please contact me through my Facebook page or Twitter account. Each piece will be attributed to the writer, or anonymous if requested. All rights remain with the original writers.
