Just finished setting up the title with IngramSpark and uploading my files. Continue reading “ART 65 #5”
It’s time—I will be taking down the draft I posted the link for later today. If you downloaded a copy and have any feedback, please e-mail me. Be sure to include your name as you would like it to appear in the acknowledgments.

Yeah, I can’t help messing with the current draft, even before any feedback (if any) comes my way. Continue reading “ART 65 #4”
The IngramSpark PDF proof for …but for the thoughts running through my mind was ready for review much sooner than expected. I have approved it, which means it should be showing up in a few extra places online (Barnes & Noble comes to mind), and, as I mentioned earlier, it should also soon be available to order through your favorite local book store, should you be so inclined. (That ISBN, again, is 978-0-9988781-0-2.)
Note: The book may disappear from Amazon for a bit, but should be back once the listing for the Ingram-distributed version kicks in.

A brief update on …but for the thoughts running through my mind. Now that I have a fresh batch of ISBNs, I am taking advantage of IngramSpark’s Indie Fringe promotion to properly set up the book with them under my own ISBN (978-0-9988781-0-2). I anticipate being able to approve the PDF proof by tomorrow, which means that you will soon have the option to order the book through your favorite local book store…

Yesterday, I was hoping that Bowker (the official ISBN agency for the U.S.) would run one of its promotions so that I could get a discount on ISBNs—ask and ye shall receive! This morning’s e-mail brought exactly that: through 11:59 p.m. ET tomorrow, you can use the code SPRING17 to get a 15% discount. So, I now have 10 fresh new ISBNs. Woo-hoo!

I have now lost count of my drafts of This Is Not the Book That Will Save Your Life.
I am leaving up the draft I posted the link to a couple of days ago, but I have already made a couple of changes—replaced one or two poems, added another one, fixed a typo.
In the meantime, I am waiting to see if Bowker runs another special on ISBN bundles. I wanted to take advantage of their last one (on the 100 ISBN bundle), but then there was that whole gotta pay the rent sort of thing. So here’s hoping for one of their discounts on the bundle of 10 ISBNs…

And today I learned that three of my photographs will also be included in the 2017 edition of Spindrift, the art and literary journal published by Shoreline Community College. That’s welcome news after a weekend of tax problems and website snafus. Yeah…

I am not hardcore into astrology—but I definitely notice when we’re entering a Mercury retrograde period. That’s when things that would normally go smoothly are more likely to go awry, particularly with respect to communication. Continue reading “Curse you, retrograde planets!”
