Is this how J.K. Rowling got started?

Just moments ago, I signed my name making it official.

The folks over at Interweave Press, the publishing company who owns Cloth Paper Scissors, as well as a slew of other great magazines, have had a serious lapse in judgement. They have signed Debbi Crane and me to co-write a book. Too late for them to back out now.

It's scheduled to come out next fall, but we have to be done waaaaaaay before that, like dang near a year before that. It will be chock full of mixed-up media projects, tips, techniques, and our own special blend of sass.

So exciting!

My biggest question is this: Who is gonna play us in the movie?

Awesome stuff cousin!!!! You are such an inspiration to me and I was supposed to be the artist one, ha! Keep it up. Hopefully I'll come down there some time for some lessons in mixed media from you. That is my next area of focus artistically.

Congratulations! I am thrilled (although not a bit surprised) for you and Debbi. Sorry to be out of touch for a few weeks...don't you just hate it when work gets in the way of art?

I know who will play you in the movie! I know! I know!, but I don't know her name. She is..... not rachel ray, not angelina jolie, not ...It's Marissa Tomei. Is that right? Do I win?

Yes, Marissa Tomei - and her mixed media clock is ticking!
Do I have to get in line for a signed copy?
