PHONE POETRY...need a better boat I think

As I mentioned yesterday I wrote a small collection of poems on Sunday on the way to Miami on my small older style flip phone. You can download the collection for free here. I love my flip phone, and have no plans (unless a rich relative dies) to buy a iPhone or anything of the such (mostly because I have no hopes of spontanously producing a rich relative to die for my benifit) so I thought it would be an intersting experiment to try and do it on an older model phone. I really don't want to do it again, my thumb is killing me and it gave me a splitting headache.

And if anyone does take the leap and download the free collection you may notice there are two different covers to the collection. One I created which I use for advertisting and the one on the collections LuLu page.

The first one I created using photos taken on the trip and playing around in GIMP2.

The second I used a LuLu image which I thought looked Miami and brochure like which I also thought fit the theme.

I say theme even though the poems aren't really about the trip but just things on my mind during the trip. On the covers front I do the first better but also know the second is easier on the eyes and more of the mainstream.....Mainstream...such a dirty word.

Enough of me being me here, I need to do some dishes.

This collection is my first PDF poetry collection released free to the public. Since I missed the deadline on FLIGHT OF THE COMING STORM I thought I owed something to those people who have been buying my monthly PDF releases. This collection consists of a few poems I wrote on a trip down to Miami to a Scott Westerfeld signing. We all enjoyed the trip and signing but this trip as well as quite a few lazy days put me behind just enough to knock me off my deadline. I could have made the deadline but didn't not have enough time for proper edits. I hope you enjoy the collection and if you did there are links in the collection to other materials for sale. All of these poems were written on my phone during the drive and that's something considering I only have a cheap little flipphone, though I love my cheap little flipphone, but it did not make writing very easy, even writing short poems.

Just a update on some other places to find me online:

Saturday night we attended a Zombie Double feature of SHAUN OF THE DEAD and ZOMBIELAND:

And the event was so popular there will be an encore event:

I would show you photos I took while there but my phone has a crappy camera but they did zombie makeup, workers were zombiefied, they did a raffle with zombie prizes, and had a costume contest. Also $4 from every ticket sold went to the Redcross. Wave won a copy of THE WALKING DEAD: VOLUME ONE signed by the artist.

Later in the night I was attacked by a librarian zombie.

A link to the encore event can be found here if you live locally and wish to attend. Also if you are local how about checking out Famous Faces And Funnies which is my local comic books store and from what I saw, the supplier of most of the prizes for the raffles. The event was sponsored by them, B&N, and others.
