I want to mention that I'm planning a new book, for September release, titled "Round Up The Usual Subjects, The Expanded Edition." I intend it as a final, comprehensive collection of my quotes, containing the best from my first two books and a small increment of quotes I have written since. My aim is to produce a standard trade-size volume that I might offer to libraries and, perhaps, place in bookstores..
I plan the book in both hardcover and soft, in size, 6 x 9, slightly larger than the 5 x 8's I've been publishing. I am bargaining with the renowned artist, Joan Brault, to supply a few illustrations (smile).
To buyers of my earlier books, I want to say that I don't expect you to line up to purchase the new book. You have done your part already, and I ask no more. I intend this book, as Shakespeare said, "For ages yet unborn" or at least for the 99.9 percent of the book-buying public who haven't yet run across my work.
Will I continue to post and tweet between now and September? Very occasionally -- just enough to get you kind folks to check in once in a while, I hope.
Smiles to all,
