the closest thing I have to news
Got the new book back from the editor so now I just have to review which stories stay and which stories go and, by far the most annoying part, what order they appear in. I will be sandwiching about 50 total stories in between two longer Nap Lapkin adventures. He’s far and away my favorite character so I trust him to start the book off strong/odd as well as bring it to a satisfactory conclusion.
The title looks like it will be Dizzying Depths. That name has been the working title for my last five books but it always seems to get switched out right as I’m about to publish. Chances are good the same thing will happen again but until I find a better title it remains the frontrunner.
I have a very clear idea what I want for the cover but as of yet have not found an artist to do it for me … for free. I like the idea of a post-apocalyptic clown walking across a dark ruined landscape but we’ll have to see what turns up.
I’ve had a couple nibbles from small publishers but as usual they are not enthusiastic about my desire to stay obscure. I completely understand their perspective and if I were them there is no way in hell I would get in bed with me.
Hoping to release it within a few months. I’ll keep you updated with any news.
