Look at this! The second book of my tweets is here! Not only is it choke-full of wisdom, it's choke-full of amazing illustrations by local artist Jeff Bergstrand. There are lots of birds and cats and even a boob. I dare you to buy the book and tell me where you found the boob, and what you think it represents. Now, as you remember, the first Blue Sparrow started out on Twitter. You guys asked for it. Blue Sparrow 2 has also been done per your request (you see what I do for you??). I probably won't make any more of them unless you put a gun to my head and demand it. Although I always have my handy chainsaw in the back pocket, so we shall see who wins.
Anyway. Now that it's out...
GO RUN AND BUY IT FOR ALL OF YOUR CREATIVE FRIENDS!
Tell them it has a boob in it. And birds. And cats. And bits of wisdom like these (with pictures!):
"No matter what anyone says, never stop making art. The point is not to get famous or make money, the point is to be happy while doing it."
"Reminder: YOU WILL DIE. So it doesn't matter what anyone thinks. Write. Paint. Sing. Dance. Act. Make art, before it's too late."
"Want to know how to get rid of your shit, all that painful shit from the past? Become a writer. Dump your shit on paper. It'll turn to gold."
Very creatively motivating, right? Your friends will love it. Of course, I will sign and kiss the paperback for you (and press it to my naked boob, for real). And of course, you can download the ebook for free right here and donate me a small fortune later. Tell me if the links work for you. This time I didn't link to the actual file (it's too big, over 100 Mb because of the illustrations). I linked to the files sitting in the Dropbox, so I hope it works.
Here are the places you can get it:
Be patient with that link. It will tell you it's hidden. Because I'm horrible with dates, I forgot to do this ahead of time, and now it will take them 1-2 days to approve it. The giveaway will be live for 2 weeks, so you'll have plenty of time to enter.
As always, review review review! And you shall wake up one day buried up to your neck in cookies. Guaranteed. Unless the monsters under your bed eat them while you sleep. No complaints to me if that happens, please.
What else? Oh, The Badlings is coming next. Stuart is sweating profusely is he rushes it to be beautifully formatted for your reading pleasure (I just sent it to him, like, an hour ago). How long until release? Maybe another couple weeks. Maybe even less. What's next? After I'm done publishing it everywhere, I'll start writing the second draft of TUBE. Finally. I know, I can't wait to start. Have been dying here without writing with all this editing and proofreading and stuff.
I love you. Thank for everything you do for me.
