Congratulations to Rebecca Schumejda, whose terrific new book is available from Stubborn Mule Press. Rebecca asked me to do some collage for the book, and little did I know the text and the images would pull together so well. It’s really a triumph for her, as she bravely pushes herself into some difficult new poetic territory, writing raw and close to the bone about a recent family tragedy. I consider it an honor to have just a small part in this ferocious and honest book, and encourage anyone reading this to go give it a look. The folks at Stubborn Mule went big, doing beautiful full-color art within the pages of this book-length rumination on potentially forgiving the unforgivable.
Just (update) zero Mini-Collage Bookmark Trade Paperbacks of Chinese Gucci remain.
These fifty signed, numbered editions come with an original, bookmark-sized mini-collage plus the free Leeches of Lore album download, and some other freebies. — plus an inscription (if you want one).
(UPDATE) they’re gone!
*note: I will offer standard trade paperback editions, often with a little something thrown in, and, as always, a free signature and/or inscription if you’d like via my store. Order HERE…
For those who wondered what the hell I was even talking about, or how it was all going to work as a book…here is your first glimpse. And while there are still a handful of things to do before they can be shipped off into the wild, we are getting damn close.
So if you have already ordered, they’re likely only a couple weeks away from being in your hands!
And if you haven’t ordered, well…you can rectify that HERE!
Two new videos to check out this weekend, and a reminder that the special editions are available for pre-order right now…and they are being grabbed up at a decent clip. Especially the hardbacks…so, as an ol math teacher of mine used to say, “A hint, to the wise, is sufficient!”
This week’s collage-as-it-was-made time-lapse. As with all the collage videos, some lucky hardback buyer will end up with this as the actual cover of their copy.
And it’s official: Every special edition hardback and trade paperback will come with a free digital download of the Leeches of Lore album mentioned in the novel itself.
Another set of BLURBS for the book:
