EVER is for preorder

You can now preorder EVER.

It is 104 pp with illustrations by Derek White, perfectbound.
Projected to ship by 01/01/09 (pending printing, but definitely by mid-Jan, I'd imagine)

The price is $12 plus $1.75 shipping.

You can do the preorder from

EVER site

which now contains two video trailers, 3 blurbs, deleted scenes from book, and more specs.



People who preorder will receive signed copies with bonus stuff I am putting together. The bonus stuff will offset trouble of preordering I think. Later orders made elsewhere will likely not come with free stuff. I don't want to say what the free stuff is yet, but it is going to be good, I think.

Thanks in advance to anyone who makes the leap. If you ain't the preorder type (understandable) it shouldn't be long before it is available as meat.

Spreading word on preordering and/or the book itself would be most wonderful.

Thank you to those who have offered review/interviews, any other who are interested in doing something please contact me.







On Thanksgiving watched 2001 on Blu Ray, wow. Then watched A CLOCKWORK ORANGE with commentary by Malcolm McDowell. At one point they were talking about Kubrick's method, how few seem to be able to conceive the way he had. Malcolm quoted Kubrick in regards to the creation process as saying something like, "I don't know what I want, but I do know what I don't want."

Yep.


Please preorder EVER

Hey Blake, I don't have a credit card, but can I buy one from you at one of the readings at Beep Beep next year (2009)? I'd love to read your stuff, have heard good things and read good things almost everywhere!

there was a documentary on english telly not so long ago about kubrick's boxes - all his archived research and preparation that he had collected throughout his career. The sheer volume of work collected in these boxes is amazing. i think this is a good link but i haven't checked it

I recall the narrator having a peculiar speaking manner.

I shall order. yes sir.
