PLA Book update
« on: October 28, 2010, 03:33:09 PM »
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/ has information on the book.

...and I'll bet you thought I was being facetious.  That money was going to be used to get my car smogged but I'll just drive around illegally. (thirteen dollar smog check!?)

sounds like you'll be glad to have the final print finished! Did my quote happen to make it into the PLA book pages?

Stop caring so much about being in the book, you silly son of a bitch.  If you were playing LORD I would haunt the shit out of you right now.

PS: I hope that even if you made the book RBCP lies to you and says you didn't.  Imagine how surprised and happy you'll be when you pick up a copy and actually see your name!  See, I'm a nice guy.

PPS: I added that last postscript just in case RB says you didn't make the book you'll have a seed of doubt left and be extra crushed when you get the book and see nothing.

PPPS:  Hi!

Yes, along with "hungry" and "I'm going to punch that douchebag in the face."

Ridiculous idea, why would anyone pay for something they can view online for free?

I almost deleted Baconstrip's post when he first made it, but the forums are pretty dead so fuck it.  You still suck, BS.

I'm halfway through proof #7 and so far it's been nothing but nitpicking corrections.  And RTF promises his illustrations today.  If things continue this smoothly, you preorderers might start seeing your copies a week before December 1st.

Any ideas on what to do with all these proof copies?  I've marked them all up pretty bad with pen except for this last one.  I'm thinking Goodwill donations.

I was thinking the same thing...maybe the thread hype would lead to more registrations!?
