I’ll be rolling out a couple of new products at Richmond Zinefest this year. Instead of coming right out and telling you what they are, I’ll just tease you with some of the preliminary sketches and give you a hint: one of the products is a mini booklet and the other is an 11″ x 17″ fitness poster.
If you’d like to see and/or purchase these new products, or if you’d simply like to take the opportunity to pie me in the face, shake my hand, or demand a refund or autograph, please do stop by my table at Richmond Zinefest on October 1oth at the main branch of the Richmond Public Library, 101 East Franklin Street.
So check this out: The Calisthenics Codex has taken off over on KOBO. Its sitting at #3 under its subject, and some nice person gave me a 4-star review. Thanks nice person! It’s so much more fun to write stuff that people actually read and enjoy.
As an artist you have to just go “Oh well,” and keep producing. I put a ton of work into three novels that barely get read. But I can’t let that get me down — I just have to say “Oh well,” and trust that someday tinder will take spark and they’ll go poof. You can’t look down. If you look down you’ll fall.
I really think that one of my secrets to success in life has been this:
I’m too hardheaded, or just plain stupid, to know when I’m beat. So I just keep coming out for the bell instead of staying on the stool where I belong and, eventually, I win a few fights by sheer determination and luck.
Might not be the most brilliant plan, but it’s all I got. I just keep on swinging.
