Dear Gee, is there anything new to say about your next book? I’m getting sick of waiting for an update, do you have anything new to say about your next book? What will be in it, what will happen, please do your next post on the progress of your book.
What about doing a special edition of your other book, people would be really happy.
First, thank you for your enthusiasm. It keeps me going on the days when the words do not meet the page with ease.
Regarding the excellent idea of a special edition of my first book, ENCYCLOPEDIA HORRIFICA, nothing would make me happier. Given the opportunity, I would very much like to delve into the real-life inspiration behind FRANKENSTEIN, for example. I would especially like to provide an expanded edition in ebook form.
Unfortunately, the publisher, to date, does not share your enthusiasm or mine. This may change in the future, depending on the success of my other projects.
Second, thank you for your patience. I know it’s not easy waiting on juicy new meals from slow-cook chefs. I truly do understand how it feels. Just like you (if I may presume), I am a lifelong fan of all things ghoulish and ghastly — including the band Tool, who release an album roughly every six years on average. And, all along, even the staunchest fan is haunted by the same nagging questions: “Will this be worth the wait? When it finally does release, will it suck?” (Pardon my language but I’m aiming for utmost authenticity here.)
Well, for better or worse, I decided a long time ago I would rather be like Tool and release something heart-felt and great every few years than be like, say, Justin Bieber and release something so-so every few months.
I do not work quickly. That is who I am. I don’t like it any more than you do, frankly. But every single day of my life, I wake up grateful for the opportunity to create cool stuff for you, because I know not everybody is blessed with this opportunity.
Now as to the reason you clicked on this article, I am indeed working on a new book again. At long last.
It is not what I originally thought it would be. It will not be directly connected to ENCYCLOPEDIA HORRIFICA in any obvious way, but it will appeal to different age levels in the same multi-textured way. I have already researched and summoned many fascinating real-life ghosts for this project, and if the publisher wills it, this project will be visually epic. I wish I could say more right now, but I cannot.
A final word about your support: When it comes to book publishing today, every fan matters. Publishers really do read your reviews on Amazon, and look at your comments on this site, and make budgetary decisions from there. High-quality, full-color books and ebooks cost quite a lot of money for publishers to produce.
So if you’d like to encourage publishers to support my work, perhaps consider donating a small amount of your time by doing the following:
B.) “LIKE” us on Facebook; and/or
C.) take a moment to post a book review on Amazon.
