What is there to say? We’re gettin’ through, ‘man. Me and all the voices in my he-… I mean, me and all the characters to books I’m going to make in the future are out here doing our thing, making sure The Hillside Commons moves forever forward. One step at a time, ‘man, that’s all. Didn’t get to do a ton on the bookmaking front yet – I’m gonna keep working today, I feel, I just wanted to post this before I got back to OTR because I’m trying to make myself look as productive as possible, in my own eyes.
Because, see, they’re my eyes; the question is Who’s looking through them?
I also put a little time into cleaning up the website, namely the homepage. It’s a lot less messy now. I have my latest release at the top with its cover and whatnot, and then below that I have an UPCOMING RELEASES section. The 2 upcomers have their own pages now, and I also cleaned up the pages for my two [unfinished] books. Gettin’ along, ‘mans. Gettin’ right along.
Last night I finished the graphics oh THAT’S why I’m sloggin’ so much today, I was up until like 4 am. I just couldn’t sleep, there was some weird metaphysical energy shit going on, I don’t know how else to explain it. The dimensions shifted or something, like, some crazy spiritual shit went down. I’m talking visions, emotions flying every which way for absolutely no reason, the whole nine yarNs. I wound up using some of the time to get the interior graphics for Over the River done, though. They look pretty dope. The rough sketches are up on my instagram, I’m gonna make a meme with the finished versions when the book is done.
I have some stuff moving this weekend so I’m not expecting to finish step 2 of OTR, but I’m hoping to at least hit page 150. Christ, a wave of exhaustion hit me when I wrote that lolllllll I’LL SLEEP WHEN I’M FUCKING DEAD, JONATHAN KNOX WILL FIND HIS GODDAMN SON OF A BITCHING EMANCI-FUCKING-PATION, oKKKKKKKKKKKKKKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?
All right, so… now that we’re all on the same page, I’m going back to Over the River. But first, Imma type this: feel free to check out the αlpha PDF for The Fall of the Seven Earths, like, the all 3 (technically 4) books in 1 edition. It’s completely skeletal aside from Flowers, but I formatted what’s there to resemble the final product so you can see what it’ll look like and also so you can rest assured knowing I’m not a figment of your imagination. Like, this is real, The Hillside Commons is going to the moon and it’s getting there through inner space, and you are more than welcome to come along for the trip👽
Since you’re there, noted reader, thank you for being there. From this day on, we move forever forward~
