Here’s the ink spatter from the back cover of my 2nd book, AmeriKKKan Stories. 2011! This was designed by @joshdivineltd, who also designed the cover for ¡Ban This! & did the interior design and spot illustrations for Lowriting. Follow him! I wanted this to look like blood spatter but with ink…if that makes sense. Think: words as bullets. Josh did a great job. This book is available CHEAP thru Amazon @ $11!! 😳 Or you can buy em direct thru me (signed). I’m working on a new book of my writing that I’ll release either late this year or early next so stay tuned. 😎 #tbt #books #lit #publishing #publishers #authors #chicanopress #writers
Print of my illustrations for #Lowriting available now at my online store. 20 signed and numbered. $18 each.
"… drawing very realistically with great finesse can sometimes produce dead uninteresting drawings — relative, that is, to a drawing with heart and charm and effort but no great finesse.”
So, my book, Ducktown got off to a ROUGH start. It started with production delays and when it was finally released, my signing was cancelled due to a 1000 yr flood (really!). As if that weren’t enough, bizarre behavior by Amazon delayed the sale of book for months afterward. While waiting for the book selling giant to resolve the issue, my local bookstore owner backtracked on her promise to carry the book when she saw the cover (really!). On top of that a bootlegged pdf appeared online while the book was unavailable in stores. It was a mess.
Let’s start over. I know a lot of people are interested in the book, and most of them probably couldn’t have gotten a hold of it they wanted to. SO, it’s now available on Amazon. It’s something I’m proud of, it looks great, and BSP did a great job printing it. If you’re interested it’s available at Time Warp Comics in Boulder as well as online thru Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Support indie publishing and imagination!
