I have a problem.  Reply with quote  

The problem is not with the book. It's me. I can't bring myself to open YOU SUCK and read. Why? I'd read it and be finished. I wouldn't have it waiting, a CM story to anticipate.

I need help.

There's no rule that you can't read it more than once. Mr. Green

Nevermore...

That gives me an idea for a Fruitbat Boardello item to sell: a 365-day tear-off calendar featuring quotes from the AG's books!!! Hey, Ginjg, what ya think? Wink

Well, since cafepress doesn't offer the product, we'd have to do a limited edition for 2008 . I don't have time to run the project, but off the top of my head we'd need to:
a) select quotes
b) commission art
c) find a manufacturer
d) market the heck out of it
e) take a lot of preorders to finance the run

That or we could pressure Harper Collins to do one

I have started the book. I actually went in to work with a smile on my face this morning, thinking about, like, you know, Abby.

I really have a problem now, I finished the book. It was great and I loved Abby.

Chris, thanks! I look forward to rereading it. I wish I could express in words how much I enjoy your writing. I can't post a wonderfully written appreciation, as I'm just not a writer like many on this board. I buy your books, recommend them to friends (and strangers in bookstores), sent a copy to Spain to spread Mooreism, and thank you for doing what you do.

I've got to go. I'm going shopping for some black lipstick.
