Order placed

Posted by on 31 Jan 2008 | Tagged as: publication updates, status updates

I have officially ordered 150 books from Infinity. Since the company is pretty speedy when it comes to printing books, I am imagining that I will receive the books by next week. If this is not enough books to go around, I can always order more. But, soon you will be able to order the books on any online book retailer. As I said before, we totally recommend .

More to come. In addition, check out the MySpace Music page for Jen Carlo (Hello Anarchist.)  It is in the Links section of this page.

Ordering the books

Posted by on 17 Jan 2008 | Tagged as: notices, promotion & publicity

We need to know how many books we need to order. So far, from the outreach that we have done, we can order at least 53 books. We know you’ll want to order more, so please contact me on MySpace or via this site to advise us on the number of copies you would like to order. The book is $14.95 plus sales tax. If you do not respond before the release party, we will order one copy on your behalf, since I am assuming the authors will want to see their name in print, and I think that’s a safe assessment. If you are not able to purchase a copy of the anthology in person, you will be able to order it at any online book retailer (B&N, Amazon, Borders, eBay, etc.) However, we prefer that you order the books from , since there will be a greater amount of royalties that may allow us to finance a second volume. Thank you for your cooperation.

IT’S HERE!!!!!!

I got the latest proof from the publishers today. I haven’t seen it yet since I’m at work while I’m typing this, but my mother told me that it’s looking pretty good. The shade of green on the cover is an emerald green and the black outline stands out a lot more (from what I am told.) This is definitely a monumental occasion. I’m extremely surprised that the book came back as quickly as it did. Now, it’s that time for us to start stocking the books. If I didn’t explain it before, I should mention that the publishing costs do not cover a specific number of books. Since it is print-on-demand, a book is published once it is ordered. We need to do some fundraising to cover the costs of the books we will order. We will have soap, beaded jewelry, and illustrations to sell. Our soap and jewelry artisan, Jen Carlo, has been very sick lately, so please keep her in your prayers to your respective gods. Thanks.

New links

We now have two new links on the TTtG website. They are the MySpace Music pages for Doug (Sacrificial Poet) and myself (Mashiach Adom.) If you have MySpace, please add us and let us know what you think about the voices behind the craft. You can find us on the Links section towards the bottom of the right-hand side of the page. Thank you for your support!

Release of book

Posted by on 14 Jan 2008 | Tagged as: publication updates, status updates

Hey guys! I talked to the receptionist at Infinity Publishing today and was told that the book would be sent back by the end of this week. The editing is complete and the book is currently in the printing stages. This is definitely a good sign of progress. As Doug mentioned in the previous blog, we have a tentative time set up for the release party, but we do need some help getting funds so that we can purchase enough books for a release party and signing. We will be selling jewelry and soap made by Jen Carlo and artwork by Jane Butters. More information on that front coming soon.

Another chapbook update

Doug and I have reached our goal of 20 exquisite corpses, but we do plan on writing some more. We really want to ensure that we have the best quality of writings that we can possibly have. We’ve already weeded out one particular poem, where somebody (I won’t mention any names), totally missed the point of the exquisite corpse and took whatever was poetic about the piece and dropped a deuce on it. There was also one where we had something good happening with a lot of people getting in on it, and it totally devolved into the bowels of madness, and I’m definitely not talking about the madness that is often experienced by your humble editor. Anyway, we still have a bit of work to do on this front, but we’ll definitely keep you posted.
