Lots going on, mostly of my own making, but that’s okay!
Pocket Posh Word Power. These adorable little dictionaries that I edited are now available. There are four to choose from:
About the size of a Moleskin notebook, they include pronunciations, definitions, usage notes, and examples from both classic literature and recent publications like The Huffington Post, Vanity Fair, and The New York Times. They’re perfect for Father’s Day, a recent grad, or that word nerd in your life (if it’s you, I won’t tell).
The Bookstore is open. Now that I have a few things that are actually buyable, I’ve set up a Bookstore page where you can find all of those in one place (including my book and the dictionaries above). There are just three items there now, but in the next several months, I’m expecting a couple more.
Black Fish Facebook page. I finally got around to doing this. For a while I wasn’t even sure if I should. Would it really make a difference? Or would it just be another thing for me to obsess over? Then I was talking with someone about my book, and he mentioned someone starting a Twitter account from the point of view of a python that had escaped from some zoo. I started to think, What about from the POV of the black fish of my book? And what if the black fish had an Asian accent?
So there you have it. I don’t know why, but I think it will be fun to keep updated and be creative with what the black fish might say, beyond the usual book updates.
And as Black Fish would say, “You like page now!”
