I am extremely excited to officially announce Kings Island: A Ride Through Time, authored by yours truly! This will be the first book ever written about the history of Kings Island! It will be release

I’ve heard back from the publisher that the book will be a September release.

New photos and images. New interview. New information. All of which happened in the last two hours. Kings Island: A Ride Through Time is going to be incredible. I think it's going

I just read about the delay and I'm still very much looking forward to it! I just hope to get all the other books I plan to read done before it's out lol. But even if I don't, I'm still planning to buy it whenever it comes out! :D

Thank you! It may have been delayed, but the final book is going to be way better than if it was still following the original timeline.

I was wondering about this. Will it be sold in the park?

My hope is yes. But unfortunately, the park’s merchandise director has not been very responsive.

For sure, for sure! Can’t wait for you to read it.

Yes, I would love to get a signed copy as well. 

Will you be at an event somewhere signing books when released?

I love history books and especially those on amusement parks.

I’d love to do a book signing, but it’s a little difficult to arrange one given that I’m not sure at the moment if it will even be sold at the park.

Just set up a table in the parking lot and have people bring their copy with them. I'm sure the park won't mind at all

Unless the book is titled something like:

”Kings Island: The Glory Days” :P

I recommend calling some bookstores. The one I worked for enjoyed having local authors promoting their work in the stores. The current situation might affect such things, but you should still give them a call. Community art and activity centers might be accommodating , as well.

Sounds like a great idea to have at park.   Sure they would love it.

I interviewed multiple people at both the park and corporate levels and they have been very supportive of the book. But the merchandise director has the final say, and although he said he was interested, I haven't heard back from him since January.

This is great news! I just picked up the Cedar Point 150 Years: The Fun is Just Beginning book. I was thinking it would be awesome if there was a Kings Island book.

I read on twitter yesterday he had issues with his publisher and now looking for a new one.    Sorry to hear.    Make sure to post lots when you get that deal and when the book will be for sale.

Thank you for the sympaththy. I'll keep everyone posted once there are more developments.

How much for a PDF copy? I want to read it. 

The standard retail price would have been $17.95 for a physical copy. However, that deal fell through, so I’m not sure what it will end up being. I will say that there are several parties that are currently interested.

Might want to try Cincinnati Book Publishing as well if you haven't. They've published several local history books (Good Samaritan Hospital, the old Terrace Plaza Hotel, etc.) so they might be interested, especially given that they're local.

Thanks, I’ll be sure to check them out!
