I release my masterpiece ITT (previously Me and My Hair)
« on: October 24, 2010, 12:57:53 am »
HEY

GUESS WHO'S MAD EXCITED RIGHT NOW?
IT'S ME

COS MY STORY LOOKS KICKARSE RIGHT NOW.

http://www.scribd.com/doc/48566290/Me-and-my-hair\

The cover is by Mel Roach, who did my Intermittens cover too.

I'll get a hardcopy going once I've time to make that happen.

Feedback welcome.

OP below for context;

Quote
(edit) OK, bugger it.

Here's the work in full. http://www.scribd.com/doc/40853759/Me-and-my-hair

Let me know if anyone is interested in helping out on the cover side of things.

OP>

I've got a manuscript I've had floating around for a while. I think it's around 25k words.

Basically I've been playing with the same damn two manuscripts for almost 5 years. I want to get a cover, maybe a couple of illustrations and publish CC'd copies onto the internets and make a couple of meatspace copies.

The name of the work is Me and My Hair. If anyone is interesting in collaborating please post here or PM me and let me know;

Quote: Are you willing to spin something out for free, or would there be a particular cost (either is good; I don't expect anyone to voulenteer their work for free unless they're pretty enthusiastic)
Type: Are you interested in making the cover, or an illustration, or what?
Any questions you may have

I'll PM copies of the work to people willing to help out.

Plot summary: Boy lives in a modern world raised by talking animals. As he reaches high school, the fairy tale reality he experiences begins to deteriorate into the true situation, and he finds himself dragged into a darker more dangerous world.

If sheep entrails could in any way be related to the weather, i.e. sheep trails only originate where it rains, then you could use it as an accurate model for discerning what the weathers going to be like. Either, sheep shit makes it rain, or raining makes sheep shit. Sheep don't shit "randomly" sheep shit after they eat, it doesn't rain "randomly" it rains after water collects in the atmosphere.

:mittens:

I don't have the time to read the entire manuscript right now, but seems pretty awesome so far and I shall read the rest of it this weekend. I suppose I could help with the artwork too.
THE MORALE WILL CONTINUE UNTIL DISCORDIANS IMPROVE

Ask me anything. Or else.
