The Tattooed Lady: A History will be out in November 2014, you can pre-order your updated copy from several places.
or directly from my publisher, Taylor Trade
The second edition has a few new photos (including this one, of Thrill Kill Jill and her husband Tyler Fyre and their expanding family!) as well as updates to performer biographies. Chapter 5- which covers Jill, and performers Charon Henning and Sparkly Devil, has been updated. Still a great read, but as I've uncovered more information since 2009, I really wanted to include that.
Now I need to get 2 ISBN numbers tattooed on me ;)
I'll be doing several speaking events in Wisconsin in the lead-up to the book's release, so please come out!

- Aug. 23rd- Pekin Public Library in Pekin, Illinois

Hope to see you out at one of these events!
