Thanks / Merci

Published January 1, 2021 by A.J.B. Johnston

Over the years, I’ve written quite a few books. Some won awards, some didn’t.

Some earned glowing reviews, some didn’t.

One never knows.

One thing I do know is that I have never before been thanked for writing a book the way I have been thanked over and again for writing “Kings of Friday Night: The Lincolns.”

The book has connected with a great many people, and many have taken the trouble to get in touch with me to let me know. In most cases, I believe, that’s because the true-life story I tell in the book was also in some part their own story. That is, they too lived through that time and were big fans of The Lincolns.

But then, I have also been thanked for writing the book by some who grew up far from Nova Scotia and never heard of the band. Nonetheless, they too connected with the story.

Clearly, there is something universal in the story of The Lincolns and their fans, something that resonates with lovers of live music everywhere.

I want to thank those many fans of the book who have let me know of their affection for “Kings of Friday Night: The Lincolns.” It is greatly appreciated.

And, I like to think, the companion video on YouTube opens the door to reaching even more people through that medium. Next, we have to find a way to turn the story into a TV mini-series.
