Chris and I decided on the release date of Twit Publishing Presents: PULP! Winter/Spring 2011 back in November. We then, in December, made the decision of throwing a book release party on January 31st. These were all good ideas at the time.
How were we to know that January 31st would be the eve of Dallas’ worst winter storm in recent memory? It was freezing over when we left the bar. Who could have guessed way back in December? Certainly not us.
But, all in all, we had a really great time and a pretty sizable turnout.
Additionally, a barroom full of people came to know the joy of The Analog Robot.
Now, it is true that the weather set back the timetable on distribution to the local book stores. It completely screwed it up, to tell you the truth. Now the books will be getting out there about a week late. But, that’s OK too.
We’ll keep truckin’.
Cause that’s just what we do.
So, to everyone that made it out Monday night, we say “Thank You.” To all of you who didn’t make it out due to concerns about the weather, we say “You’re totally a pansy. It wasn’t freezing till after the party.” Just kidding, you’re not a pansy.
If you were unable to purchase a copy of the book for whatever reason, I invite you to visit our website and buy a copy.
Tomorrow I start posting the Q & A with C. Griffith Knowles, one of our authors for the first book. It’s mammoth one, so I think it’ll be a three-part series.
Also, if you’re going to be at STAPLE! Austin the first weekend of March, look for me and Chris there. If you’re going to be at All-Con Addison, Texas in the middle of March, we’ll be there too (and with friends Neither Noir and The Taffeta Darling, no less!).
Till next time, folks!
