Former American Neo-Nazi Skinhead Leader Crowdfunds Memoir, Exceeds Funding Goal in 48 Hours
by BWW News Desk - Sep 20, 2014

Former right wing extremist Christian Picciolini to Release "Romantic Violence: Memoirs of an American Skinhead." In his memoir "Romantic Violence: Memoirs of an American Skinhead," Chicago author and former right wing extremist Christian Picciolini shows readers how a well-loved fourteen-year-old kid from an immigrant Italian family became a leader of the early American racist skinhead movement. He was the lead singer in the first white power band from the United States to perform in Europe. He attended KKK rallies and cross burnings, was kicked out of four different high schools-some twice-and stockpiled weapons so, if necessary, he'd be ready to fight the United States government to protect the white race from annihilation. In his book, "Romantic Violence: Memoirs of an American Skinhead," Christian Picciolini, now a music industry veteran and peace advocate, faces his past with brutal honesty in the hope that by exposing his own crimes, others may live in peace. Picciolini has also committed to providing free copies of his book for all 16,000 United States public libraries if the 30-day Kickstarter campaign for "Romantic Violence" garners over $100,000 in pledges. Currently, the initial goal of $7,500 was exceeded within 48 hours of the campaign's launch and continues to grow steadily with 28 days remaining. Readers of an early preview copy of the book have expressed great enthusiasm for the project and have rallied around the crowdfunded project (http://kck.st/1o0bg9l) to see the memoir published in Spring 2015. ''Romantic Violence' will change the lives of countless people who live with hatred in their hearts as well as those who are victimized by that hate. Bold and brave, Christian takes the most difficult of truths and sheds light on what most people choose not to see.' - Liza Bell, licensed clinical social worker. Christian Picciolini left the American racist movement in 1995 before earning a joint degree in international business/international relations from DePaul University in Chicago and co-founding the peace consultancy Life After Hate (www.lifeafterhate.org). His book Romantic Violence, released by Goldmill Group, is a factual account based on his involvement in the American racist underground from 1988 to 1995.
