The Motel Cowboy Show: First-Run Numbered Hardcover Edition
This is a pre-order, which will ship by August 3, 2023!
Get your hands on the first press run of The Motel Cowboy Show, and the only hardcover editions that will ever be sold! We will print 100 copies of this edition, and they will come hand-numbered by the author, and will be shipped before any other copies, including those for author and artist, are even unboxxed. The number of your edition will correspond to the order in which you ordered the book. (i.e. if you are the 10th order, your book will be numbered 10/100, and so forth.)
All bonus content included: These editions will contain all of the All-Access bonus material, including the features from the Reckless Kelly and Micky and the Motorcars special editions, plus early access to the e-book version of The Motel Cowboy Show, plus an 11x17 Motel Cowboy Show poster. Here are the full details.
The book is anticipated to be 224 pages, including 20 pages of full-page, black-and-white photography of some of the best moments captured in the making of The Motel Cowboy Show.
• Behind-the-music with Willy Braun and Micky Braun. The front men and primary songwriters for Reckless Kelly and Micky and the Motorcars will tell the stories behind their best-known songs.
• Director's cut. A collection of quotes from artists interviewed for The Motel Cowboy Show that did not fit into the original edition.
• Bonus concert reviews. We'll take you behind the scenes as Reckless Kelly performs at the world's largest honky tonk, Billy Bob's Texas, and we'll take you up close as Micky and the Motorcars play at Tulsa's legendary Mercury Lounge.
• 10 more pages of exclusive photos taken during the writing of The Motel Cowboy Show.
Special features: Purchasers of this edition will also receive:
• Early e-book access. On or about July 15, 2023, you will receive a link to download the original e-book version of The Motel Cowboy Show, approximately four weeks before it is released to the public. It will be available for all major e-readers including Kindle and iBooks.
• Sticker. The official Motel Cowboy Show book sticker is black canvas and it is slick. Trust us, it's worth the price of this edition for the sticker alone.
• Poster. You'll get the official Motel Cowboy Show poster, printed on 11x17 canvas, featuring the book cover design as well as a panoramic photo taken during the 2022 Braun Brothers Reunion in Challis, Idaho. This will fit nicely in any poster collection.
Boise Hive: The Motel Cowboy Show supports Boise Hive, a nonprofit whose mission is to provide mental health and suicide prevention services to the Idaho Music community. $10 from every purchase of this edition will be donated to Boise Hive, and we will throw in a one-of-a-kind sticker as a thank you.
All orders will ship via UPS Ground, USPS Priority Mail, or better.
