All posts for Infinimata Press: Projects in 2008


Roadmap Dept.

I took a little time today to figure out what the roadmap is for Tokyo Inferno from here on out, now that NaNoWriMo is officially over. Here's what I have so far. December: Time off. I need it badly, especially after...

Headfirst Into The Wall Dept.

I've got bad news, but maybe it's actually good news in disguise. The bad news is simple: It doesn't look like I'm going to get to 50,000 words by the end of November. I gave it a good college try,...

The Starting Gun!

On the first day of NaNoWriMo 2008, I racked up a nice, solid 2,143 words for Tokyo Inferno. My initial hesitancies about how difficult it was going to be and whether or not I would get mired down in topical...

NaNoDept.

I completely forgot to ask: Who else is doing NaNoWriMo this year? Since it's not possible to change your username there I set myself up with a whole new account -- so if you have an old account, you will...

A Glimpse of the Future

The first draft for the cover image for Tokyo Inferno is live. Check it out... Cover images, BTW, are by Heiwa4126@Flickr, and are available under the Creative Commons Attribution 2.0 Generic license....

The NaNo Bookshelf

Because so much of what I'm doing with Tokyo Inferno requires research and documentation, I've been building a bookshelf of titles to keep close at hand while writing the book. Many of the things listed here I've mentioned before, or...

Oops Dept.

Apparently the links to the Summerworld and The Four-Day Weekend samplers were out of whack due to me moving some directories around. It should be fixed now....

About Genji Press

Some people (mostly regular visitors to the site) have been asking me, "So what's the deal with you losing TheGline.com and moving to GenjiPress.com?" Some of this has been discussed in the About Me page, but I thought some description...

4DW: Indahouse!

That's right! The first new copies of The Four-Day Weekend are back in-house and ready to be signed, sealed, delivered and sent your merry way! Signed copies are $25 (includes shipping and any applicable sales tax). Unsigned copies ordered directly from...

Tinkering Dept.

I'm in the process of migrating the site to a clean instance of the MT database. Some things might be a little flaky, but as far as I can tell all the basic stuff (commenting, rebuilding, etc.) works fine....

Come And Get Your Weekend!

The Four-Day Weekend is now available for sale from Lulu.com. Price: $14.99 (paperback, plus tax/shipping). Credit cards and PayPal are accepted directly from the site. The copies I've ordered (which I'll be signing and sending out) should be in sometime...

It's My Nightmare Dept.

I spent most of the last two days highballing NyQuil and wishing I didn't feel like red-hot pokers were being shoved into my eyesockets. That's right -- Con Crud (or Con Staph, ha ha), which is rather surprising since I...

ATTENTION: ANIMEFEST 2008 COUPON CODE HOLDERS!

Note: To all those who replied, thank you -- I haven't forgotten about you. I've just been dealing with a horrid case of the flu for the past two days. I'm hoping to have all the pending orders fulfilled by...

Books In The Offing!

According to the fine folks at the U.S. Postal Service, the copies of Four-Day Weekend that I'll be selling at AnimeFest have shipped and should be in my hands before I make like a banana for Dallas. This'll be something of...

Come See What The Weekend's All About

You've been hearing me crowing about The Four-Day Weekend for long enough -- now it's time to actually see for yourself! I've posted the first chapter sampler (.PDF format) for 4DW, a cut-down version of the first several chapters of the...

The End Of A Very Small Era

There's a part of me that still feels like I have something to do, but I know there isn't. Last night I sent the files for Four-Day Weekend to the printer's. After the usual endless round of checking and cross-checking, tweaking...

Let The Exhaustion Commence

At just a few minutes shy of 1PM today, I completed the third-draft edits for The Four-Day Weekend. I've since sent the edits on to my readers -- who, with any luck, will be sending me back corrections before I...

Yet Another Rave For Summerworld

Call me absentminded, just don't call me late for dinner! A (positive) review of Summerworld went up at Gloria Oliver's blog a ways back and I totally freakin' forgot to link to it. Silly me....

Another Rave -- From The Lulu Book Review Blog

The Lulu Book Review Blog has an enthusiastic and spot-on review of Summerworld: Serdar was one of the very first authors to query his book to us here at LLBR when we were getting started, and we almost passed on...

4DW: Phase Two

The edits for The Four-Day Weekend (formerly The New Golden Age) began in earnest this past week. 50 out of 300 pages is 1/6th of the manuscript -- not bad for only a couple days' work! That said, this is...

Completion!

The first draft of _The Four-Day Weekend_, formerly _The New Golden Age_, is complete. 6:08 PM, Sunday June 29 2008. 117,022 words. _Fais que ton rêve soit plus long que la nuit_ ("May your dreams last longer than the night")...

A Summerworld Rave From None May Say

The None May Say blog, by a fellow who "[spends his] free time searching out POD ("Personal Outlay Developed" or, more traditionally, "Publish On Demand") books, movies and music", has just published a rave review of Summerworld. With no...

An update....

Just so people don't think I've dropped dead (I haven't). I'm in the process of merging all the blogs I've been managing into one single site, with this being the first of the bunch. Don't expect anything to change immediately,...

Post-Holiday Updates!

I hope everyone's 2007 holidays were terrific, and that you're all looking forward to even better things in 2008. Mine were, and I am! I've posted over at the New Golden Age blog about what's happening with that, my...
