Hey! I got mentioned in Publishers' Weekly!

Can I get a Woot-Woot!?

This weeks' issue of Publishers' Weekly (the publishing periodical) gave me a mention in the "Deals" section-

The Wire

Lisa Clancy at Running Press bought world rights to Terry Border's Bent Objects: The Secret Life of Everyday Things via Sorche Fairbank. Based on Border's popular blog, the work is a collection of his still lifes using everyday objects, including scenarios such as a bottle of Dramamine falling ill, a pear looking in a mirror and despairing of its bottom-heavy physique, and Caribbean seasoning living up to its “jerk” name. Pub date is fall 2009.

So, yes, that's the date - fall of 2009. I know it's a long ways off, but that'll give us time to really do this thing right. That's also why you should let me know that you want to be on the list of peeps who want to be notified when the book is available. I know how it is in the blog world- the blog that you check out constantly for months gets forgotten when you get busy and go on to other things. So email me to say "Put me on the list!"

My contact link is on the right of this page in bold blue! Ya can't miss it!

(And yes, it's gonna take several more days for the celery saga to unfold!)
