, looking forward to seeing this in print—sunsets will be my last book for a while. it’s a doozy. 104 pages, black & white, printed in new jersey by conveyor,

the last half of 2021 was fairly serious for me & sunsets covers the events in the days, weeks, months, and years leading up to it. made over 8 weeks in los angeles after 9 weeks of treatment for a few things, it will round out the gap year book club & will be available asap.

as i have been focusing my writing there (~25,000 words, with nearly two-thirds at least some part legible), i haven’t been writing here or most other places, which also will change now. although i’m not too sure what to write about, as the powers that be insist on spending the next couple decades watching the rest of us perish in misery—

now at my favorite stage of making a book, the infamous i’ve worked for weeks & weeks & weeks at this thing so now that it’s finished, i will re-write & re-design it from the beginning, 48 hours before the press deadline

various works in progress for Sunsets

“no, i swear, i actually do have insomnia & my waking up at three in the morning has nothing to do with the fact i drank a double espresso at six-thirty last night.”

deep sigh.

started my last publication for the gap year book club, which will be a black & white book called Sunsets. will not post about this again until the book is off to the printer.
