Look what I've found...

Stacked upon my doorstep tonight was this bounty of freshly printed books. Soon I will be shipping out review copies, and fulling all of the orders that have already been received.

Speaking of which, I want to thank everyone who has placed an order through paypal. For those of you who are not comfortable using paypal you can send check or money order to Orange Alert at P.O. Box 3897, St. Charles, IL 60174. Also (although and I am not going to hype this option to highly) the Amazon page has been established.

Scene One: The Party

Scene One: The Party - Ben Tanzer, Tim Hall, Amy Guth and Jill Summers

A couple of weekends ago, Ben Tanzer, Tim Hall, Amy Guth, Jill Summers, Nick Volkert and myself meet at Stray Dog Recording Co. to record a condensed version of the book. It is broken into 7 sections or scenes, and the first on is ready to go. The intro and outro music has graciously been provided by Stefen Robinson (a.k.a. Yea Big).

The proof arrived today, and I could not be more excited and pleased with how it turned out. When you submit something in pieces, and it is all on the computer screen, it is hard to understand what it will actually look and feel like.

I was also concerned with the quality of the printing that I would receive. I had looked at several printers in the area and even at one that was in downstate Illinois. I decided to go with Lightning Source for both their distribution outlets and their ability to help me control costs. I discussed the difference between offset and digital with a local printer, and she said that for small runs with black and white text digital is what she would always recommend. With all of that being said, I was still nervous about the quality. I can honestly say that I am very impressed with the work that they did, and I can't wait to share it with everyone.

However, there are a few corrections that need to be made, but I don't believe that this will effect the release date of Aug. 1st!

I want to again thank Chris Szostek and Michael Paige Glover for the work they put into making this project what it is today.

We're in the Studio

Yesterday, by some act of fate or luck or something, I was able to gather five very talented people into Stray Dog Recording Studio, and the results will hopefully be very enjoyable for everyone. What I did was basically trim the book down into a 24 page, 7 scene audio play that turned our to last just about an hour. Joining me to record this project was Tim Hall (Peter), Amy Guth (Rhonda), Jill Summers (Jen), Nick Volkert (Peter), and of course Ben Tanzer (Geoff/Narrator).

Everyone had a great time and hopefully that shines through on the recording that will be released through our various blogs in the next few weeks. I am now in talks with a mystery beat creator to add a little flare to intros and outros for a little extra appeal.

More details to follow, but the release date has been scheduled. The book will be available for purchase on August 1st (very exciting!).
