Astronaut Blood Update 10/15/11

I haven't posted anything in a while, mostly due to my constant re-working/re-formatting/re-editing of Enough Astronaut Blood To Last The Winter. What I've been doing is going through the original 160 page version and cutting out the weaker art pieces and short stories. I then brought in over a hundred recent pieces for a new version clocking in at 262 pages. I suspect by the time it hits print it'll be at least 300, as I want it to be as up to date as possible. I also re-formatted the size from 5 x 7 to 6 x 9, which was a bummer since the other books are 5 x 7, but in the end it serves the art better. Also in the works is a seperate book which will basically serve as an appendix to Astronaut Blood and will feature drawings that didn't fit in the book, sketches, journal entries/working notes, doodles, and some of the stranger short stories. I figure I'll have that one available when I do readings or whatever. More details soonish.

Great news! I think the larger format is a really good idea. and 300 pages will be a treat. Do let us know when these books go to print and when we can hope to get them from ya.
