Seeing is believing

So this is the novella, all printed out and ready for proofing…
…And these are the are art pages ready to be submitted.

I'm a little bit excited. Or, in the words of a teenage chav: "I is a 'ittle hexcited, innit?"

Eeeee! This is awesome, and it looks fantastic. Congrats!

"But there was no sign of Annie Taylor" - I already told you: She was outside my living room window! That was a year ago, so you're probably too late to find her now.

The art work looks cool!

The Pirate King said...

That's exciting stuff - what's the next step?

T-Bird said...

Looking at these, I get the impression that I will be able to say "I totally annoyed Tim Leng before he got famous!"

Yay! I bet this one will get picked up by a publisher somewhere along the line. Do you have a literary agent to do your thang, or did that whoring worshop tell you differently?

Tim said...

Dinah - Wait until I format it properly - I'm going to pick a nice font and have drop caps and everything! It'll be well exciting, and will also bump up the number of pages.

Inexplicable Device - Stop zooming in on the picture to try and read it - be patient!

The Pirate King - Arrrr, there be pirates 'ere! Welcome! Well, given my past form, I'll probably procrastinate for a few months, then get snowed under watching Gossip Girl, Chuck, and My Name is Earl, then wonder why I've not done anything productive since 1994.

T-Bird - Ha! And you totally can afterwards!! I think I'll just whore myself - I'm like a pimp and ho all rolled into one.

Tara said...

Yay! Your novella looks all crisp and ready for stardom!..But first to the proofreader!

Interesting art, too!

T-Bird said...

So you have a gold tooth, feather, cane and knee high boots on right now?

I bet you do, don't you?

Tim said...

Tara - To the proofreader indeed!

T-Bird - Don't forget the cravat!

Very cool artworks. When does the whoring begin? The whoring of the book i mean. I have a feather boa you can borrow, in fact I have two, one is pink.

Sylvie Girl said...

I love the artwork. I should like to read that until my padded tits explode.

CyberPete said...

Looks really interesting. Tried to zoom in on the pages but my glasses are smudged or not powerful enough.

Can't wait to pick up a copy

CyberPete said...

and whore away!

Tim said...

Watch*Paint*Dry - Straight away, I think! I'll bear the feather boa in mind, but I'm not certain I'll need it…

Sylvie Girl - Whoa! Be careful, we can't have detonations going off all over the place! Will I need to limit you to one page per day?

Inexplicable Device - I think some landed on your shoulder.

Cyberpete - Maybe I made the photos too small … on purpose! Can't be giving all my secrets away just yet!

Sylvie Girl said...

Yes. And these will become padding once read. My aim is to be as large as Cunning Stunt by the end of the week. Keep it coming.

T-Bird said...

You'll need a monocle to protect your working eye (we all know the other one hasn't been the same since the Crimea) from all the padded tits exploding.

Tim said...

Sylvie Girl - Crumbs!

T-Bird - Screw the monocle - I might need goggles!

T-Bird said...

All that feather downy stuff is going to blind you in your remaining eye, Baron Von Timhoffengen.

watch*paint*dry said...

Everyone needs a feather boa!

Tim said...

I think I'm with T-Bird on this one - I'm not convinced I could (or would want to) carry off the boa-look!

CyberPete said...

Oh you clever man eh?

T-Bird said...

Perhaps the Baron could wear that new fangled invention that will never take off - the bifocals. Sort of like Gary Oldman in Bram Stoker's Dracula, they could be shaded a colour for no apparant reason.

Unless Dracula was dyslexic.

Tim said...

Cyberpete - I wouldn't quite go that far…

T-Bird - Or goggles! I'd look great in goggles.

Wouldn't it have been great if Dracula needed a blind dog?

CyberPete said...

Now, just how far would you go....

hmmmm?

*grins*

Tim said...

I've kind of lost track of what we're talking about, but I suppose it depends on the situation.
