Default My book

Well, I wanted to break the news here, but I couldn't wait.

Drop by:

http://www.lulu.com/pellis

and check out my first book: a collection of prose poems, called Strange Gardens. It's not too dear, so you can happily consider picking up a copy if you like.

ciao!

I understand, Edith....

I got $200 AUS yesterday, paid a bill, then, with the $120 left I paid for three books. Two are pre-orders, and will come later in the year, when they're published. The other'll turn up in about a month's time.

Nothing Anne related; just Clark Ashton Smith & George Sterling.

It's sold through the website. So it's available, theoretically, anywhere. What you need, though, is the ability to buy online.

I'm gonna' have to pester mom . She's so paranoid that she's only ever ordered one thing off the internet; some stupid cards for my brother. This might take a while, as I am currently bugging her to order the Outlaw Star DVD set off the internet (I'm paying of coarse; I just can't order because I don't have a credit card). I'll try though .

If I had a credit card, I'd do it for you, and anyone else from here, but I lack even that.

It would cost me about $40 US to get listed on Amazon. When I can, I shall take up the offer!
