Production on Lydia Criss’s forthcoming autobiography Sealed With A KISS continues to move forward and the 300+ page book will be released exclusively through the author’s Web site, with midsummer 2006 as the targeted release date. Lydia was married to original KISS drummer Peter Criss from 1970-1979 and accepted KISS’s 1977 People’s Choice Award for “Beth” on their behalf

Sealed With A KISS will be published in a large, coffee-table format, roughly 10X12 in size, and contains over 1,500 unpublished photographs of KISS during their 1970s heyday.

Lydia continues to publish exclusive images from Sealed With A KISS on her Web site with the most recent image posted on Wednesday, a never-before-seen live shot of KISS from their first tour in July 1974. “The venue was so small that KISS had to sit their lighted logo on the side of the stage,” Lydia noted in a recent update on her Web site. You can see the previously unpublished KISS photo here.
