This is version 2.0 my first free ebook, “KISS School of Marketing: 11 Lessons I Learned While Working With KISS.” Version 2.0 contains seven BONUS lessons and five EXCLUSIVE chapters of KISS photos I captured while touring with KISS. This book expands on the 2011 article I wrote that outlined 10 lessons I learned from working with KISS. The original article was even re-posted by Gene Simmons on his official website. This expanded book includes one additional lesson and a special encore chapter contributed by Steve Jones, author of the book rand Like A Rock Star: Lessons from Rock ‘n Roll to Make Your Business Rich and Famous. In addition I have added some of my favorite photos that I have taken of KISS over the years and some interview quotes by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley provided by the original interviewer.
