Shut Up He Explained

...by John Metcalf should be in bookstores next week, so keep an eye out for it! The cover photo is by yours truly. I'm so excited! It's been quite the year for me, and having my work on the cover of this particular book is, indeed, one of the great highlights. I just about jumped off my chair last night when I read this post by the publisher. How cool! I can't wait to have that signed copy in my hands. If the books arrive in time, I'll be bringing a copy to the SWG Fall Conference to show around, so be sure to take a peek. And next time you're in a bookstore, look for Shut Up He Explained and make sure it's facing out!

UPDATE: Have a look at the article on John Metcalf and Shut Up He Explained that appeared in the The Ottawa Citizen. And John W. MacDonald just posted a great photo of Metcalf from the launch. MacDonald's photographs are all great. Anyhow, I just about jumped off my chair when I saw the photo because lo and behold, there's the book! I'm tickled!

So would this constitute a mini culvert installation?

(Yay! Congrats!)

Brenda Schmidt said...

Ha! I never thought of that, but yes! Thanks, A.

Hey! I noticed the other night that your name was credited. Way to go!

My face, rather a slice of it, is in the book, too. Look in the second section of photos and look carefully between Zach Wells and Bill Hawkins - that's me looking at my camera.

Thanks, John!

Cool! I'll look for you and your camera as soon as I get the book. Maybe if I'm really lucky one day you'll point that camera at my mug. :)
