So, the Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers) made it to the promised page 50. Thanks to everyone who faved and commented and generally made me feel awesome about what I was doing.
During the production of these "first 50"(as I like to call them) I received a number of offers from folks who would like to publish it for you all, and I'm hopeful that one of these offers is going to work out. If it doesn't work out, I'll start looking down different avenues so that folks can eventually get their hands on the dead tree edition that so many have asked for.
In the meantime I've been revising many of the pages, with a particular attention being given to the early stuff where both art and anapestic tetrameter are being given a facelift. Another thing that I'm doing with the revisions is changing all of the single pages into double page spreads so that the whole thing can breathe and get closer in line with the way the great Theodor Geisel might have done it. This will mean that the page count will beef up to something like 70.
At this point I have completed the first five of these double spreads, and I am working on the sixth as I type. I intend uploading these soon, and I'd be glad to hear any thoughts that folks might have about where I should put them. By which I mean that these revised pages will replace the old ones - in some cases with completely new art and rhyme. Do y'all want me to stick these in a new folder and leave the old stuff where it is for old times' sake, or just replace all the old stuff (which might knock all the comments out of whack)? Whatever.
Take care, and be excellent to each other.
