capriuni: A black field crossed by five parallel lighting bolts in blue, gold, green, red, and purple (Default)

At least, I've managed to extract each of the 30 individual poems from the PDF of the book, and save them as separate word files, again. Just got poem #30 down a few minutes ago.

Next Step: putting them back together in single file.

Step after that: making sure the format is all correct, re headings and stuff: crossing ts and dotting is.

...And deciding what changes to make, if any (Do I want to keep the compass rose ornaments at the start of each chapter, or do I want this to be a "no frills" edition? Do I want to add an "Author's comment" about stuff that's happened since the book first came out as paper and ink? etc.).

In any case, to commemorate finishing that first task, I've decided to increase the discount on the paperback (On the Lulu.com site) from 20% to 50%. You can now buy it for less than the cheapest shipping cost (probably).

...Just saying.

Support independent publishing: Buy this book on Lulu.

BTW, here's the one review of the book on Lulu's page (and no, I don't know this person very well -- maybe said a few words to him on an online forum, over the course of a few years):
Begin quote:
(Five Stars)

I could try to string out a bunch of adjectives, but they wouldn't convey the experience of reading this. "Drawing on the emerging academic fields..." might hint at dry dissertation; there is nothing dry about this beautiful, expressive, poetry.

End Quote.

*preens*

Preening is definitely called for

and now that I've gotten out from under my WisCon hex, I'm gonna post "Anthem (for the People of No Nation)" on my blog with a rave review.

Because that's definitely called for as well.

(I was too embarrassed to leave a review at Lulu.)

I vote for making the ebook canonical, or at least up-to-date. Since you're CCing the whole thing, the ebook will travel farther than paper.
