Twenty Six Lies/One Truth (New Chapbook)

Okay, so, here's the coolness:

I have sold a chapbook to Wheatland Press called Twenty Six Lies/One Truth.

This book will actually be the reworked and completed alphabet pieces that I have been doing on the blog here, and which many of you have liked (which as always is very cool and thank you muchly). You may have noticed, however, that they've slowed down in the last week and, well, there's your reason. The other reason is that for a blog post, they were a touch time consuming, and would take me half a day at least, and that was without the rewriting (which they never got). It's a bit too much time to spend on the blog, really, but not nearly enough time to spend on a book, so that means I get to go back, clean up the stronger pieces, and rework others to make it a cohesive whole. The end result of this will mean that if you thought that what had been done so far was cool, then I reckon you'll dig the final version of Twenty Six Lies/One Truth since I'll have a lot more time and range and ability to put into it.

So that's very cool and I'm very pleased. Assuming there's no problem, it'll be published round the World Fantasy Con, in November.

That is cool!

(And because I've spent the last 3 hours looking at collages, thinking about collages and photoshopping a collage of my own, it occurs to me that the pieces would be great interleaved with twenty-six collages. There's a lovely glossy book in my mind...)

twenty six collages?! that's a lot of collaging. anyhow, we were tossing round the idea of doing some sort of cover with the 'i hate ben peek' badges, though it's probably too early to worry about that sort of stuff in any real way.

November? So, when do I get to begin the clamoring and maniacal wide-eyed grasping? It does have to begin early, of course, to emulate the model fanboy mystique.

I would hate to be accused of a diminishment in both the quality and quantity of my obsessive toadying agenda. My stalker licensing may be called into question, as well, if I get caught letting such things slip.
