    Dear Staff,
    I wanted to know how one can post in this site. I want to talk about my book for a new bio for Layne and the Chains, done with love and respect, not sorted details of the pure hell they went through the last few years of Layne’s life. This will be a book to honor the work they have done with Layne, and dedicated to US- the fans, for without us, Alice doesn’t exist. I have put a lot of hard painstraking research and personal effort into my book which explores my personal musical journey to loving the Chains, loss of Layne, memorial section, his side projects, my poems for Layne, my personal grief process, madseason, addiction and treatment, brotherhood, conflist and resolve, friends thoughts, my fav tunes discussed from a heart perspective, legacy, influences, contibutions, fan section etc.

    I have 34,000 words for Layne and the Chains so far, I need to triple that number. I want this book to be everything the fans wanted but could never find. – with 2 bad bios on Layne, the guys need this and so do we. Please don’t discourage me from doing it- many so called fans are sending me hate mail from the 2 forums I currently subscribe too. I never realized too much anger there is on the subject of “Alice” and their story. I thought I would be welcomed and appreciated for atttempting to honor Layne and AIC- I was wrong, if anything I stirred up the bloody waters and the sharks are circling.
    But I am just a girl who loves AIC and I need all the support I can
    get. If you have any suggestion or comments, about posting or otherwise, please e-mail me at 4Alice4ever@gmail.com.
    Thank you,
    Country Girl

    I would buy this book.

    Country Girl. Its an awesome effort and gesture/project. But what completely puts me off on your youtube channel is the fact that you mention that you speak to Layne and he speaks to you… In the end I can’t help but think that this book will be based on you and your conversations with Layne.
