Just an update on all this PLA book nonsense...things are going great with it. I had hoped to have it all ready by November 1st, but that isn't going to happen. My new goal, which is a very realistic goal, is December 1st. I hope to mail out the preorders and free copies at least 1 week (maybe 2) before announcing that the book is available. I might get it all finished up in mid-November, but December 1st at the very latest.
I'm up to my 7th proof of the book now, which is due to arrive here in a few days. This means I've actually read this book 6 times now, circling mistakes, fixing punctuation errors and making small improvements as I go along. I'm so fucking sick of reading the book at this point. Proof #6 had very few mistakes left, but I actually caught a misused "your/you're" in there which made me hate myself a lot. It also made me glad I'm not rushing this book out so that it's more awesome when you guys get it and you don't all hurt my feelings by pointing out the numerous mistakes in it. For the most part I feel like I'm just nitpicking with my error finding now, which is a good thing.
I'm waiting for RTF to finish up a couple illustrations. He sent me a rough draft of one a couple weeks ago and it looked awesome. I did one illustration myself and I'm pretty happy with it. Plus I included an old pay phone abstract I did in the 90's which is what one of the old PLA GIFs was based on. And there's some other fan artwork thrown around in it, by 3rdworm and some other people whose names I'm too lazy to remember right now. If YOU would like your own PLA-themed art in the book, it's not too late to email me some. Black and white only and there's no guarantee that I'll use it so prepare for cruel rejection.
So that's where the book is right now. It'll most likely be available by December 1st. I'll probably announce its availability here on the forums before I do on phonelosers.org or on Twitter and Facebook.http://www.phonelosers.org/book/
