    Default "Van Halen 101" book w/EVH tribute is now available...details here...

    Alright ladies and germs. A most unexpected and cool thing has happened. Um, basically, my book went "live" today. In other words, you may now purchase "Van Halen 101." The reason I say it's unexpected is cuz this wasn't supposed to happen for another couple of weeks. I'm actually taking a little break this week and I'm supposed to be chillin', when my publisher emails me and says, "Dude, if you like, we can go ahead and release it today." Gee, what do you think I friggin' said?!?! Shit, I almost fell over.

    So here's the deal. And as promised, you're gettin' it here first. I haven't even sent out the press release yet. I'll be sending it out soon as I finish here. So y'all are gettin' this first-hand, before anyone else in the world.

    It's real simple. "Van Halen 101" is 400 pages (in a handy 6x9 format). Yes, I said 400 pages!!! It's a comprehensive guide to the amazing history, music, impact and influence of the Mighty VH. Foreword by Brian May of Queen, killer cover shot by Neil Zlozower, and a tribute to EVH by over 100 of the world's greatest. I think you guys know the deal by now, so I won't keep you waiting.

    Now, the book retails for $27.95, folks. However, if you go to the Official Author House Book Store, you can buy it right now for just $19.95! It doesn't matter where you live, whether here or abroad, everyone and anyone can buy this book! Mind you, the book will be available through thousands and thousands of retail outlets (online & book-and-mortar), but they won't have it for another 2-3 weeks. So if you want first crack at VH 101, and you want it for just $19.95 (+ shipping & handling), please go to:


    www.vanhalen101book.com


    This is the new link I just scored and it will take you directly to my official page over at the Official Author House Book Store. You may purchase the book there, right now, with a Major Credit Card.

    However, you may also place an order through the Official Author House Book Order Hotline, toll-free, at: 1-888-280-7715 (M-F, 8am-6pm, Central Standard Time). And while the website is only set up for payment by Major Credit Cards, when ordering over the phone you can pay by Major Credit Card, Check, and Money Order! The choice is yours.

    Well, that pretty much covers it. This book is now yours, and I truly hope you enjoy it. Finally, if anyone has any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask by contacting me at: VanHalen101@hotmail.com

    Thanks to everyone for all their kind words and support. I truly appreciate it.
    That goes double for you, Brett. Email me, cuz I'm sending you a copy myself.
    You've been beyond friggin' cool, man...

    The little check box for "autographed by author" didn't show up for me.
    PS: Thanks!

    Just ordered 2 copies myself -- one for myself and one as a gift for a good friend.

    Can't wait. Thanks Abel for your work and dedication to the world's greatest band.

    Here's a better price for the book... "Van Halen 101" is now available at VanHalenStore.com for the LOWEST PRICE ANYWHERE. Just $17.95, PLUS you automatically get a FREE official Van Halen sticker with the purchase of the book. Also, our shipping cost is the lowest you'll find... just $4.95, totally $22.90, including the free sticker. (The publisher's site is selling the book for $19.95 plus $6.81 shipping, totally $26.76)

    So we have it for almost $4 cheaper at Van Halen Store, which is a whopping $10 off the list price, plus you get the free sticker.

    To get this special price of $17.95 and cheaper shipping, you MUST click on the following link, because this price is ONLY available to the VHLinks & VHForum population:
