Updated cover for BC

I spent much of today making this cover look as professional as I could while listening to WFUV play a lot of alt-rock (only bits of it Christmas-y). I've asked Bowker to issue me a barcode for it, which should be okayed, tomorrow...then it will be ready to start printing via Lightning Source. This is step 2 of reclaiming my work.

It's funny -- Amazon has the previous edition of this book listed as Out of Print with limited availability.  Limited is right; I sold 1 copy of the paperback. That's as limited as you can get. At least this one will be better priced -- $15.95 instead of $23.50, and in a 6x9 form instead of 5x8; doing it that way was a mistake on my part.

I think I'll work on Porno Manifesto, next. I never liked that cover; too garish and wrong. But I also want to re-issue's just that I'm still not sure how to do it. This book's gotten me into some fun trouble, and much as I'd enjoy maintaining the irritation quotient, considering the subject matter, I need a new cover workup and some way of publishing it without being told, "No way in hell."

I've stayed in since I had that dental work, focused on keeping my mouth clean and not getting any infection where my tooth once was. I'm prone to that, if I'm not careful...and while my jaw still aches, so far nothing too bad's happened.

Man...I'm racking up some deduction on the taxes for 2013...
