Great News! It's official, we are having two release events: 1) theNewerYork Literary Carnival is going to be on August 24th 2012 from 6-9 at the Lyric-Hyperion Theatre in Los Angeles. There will be linguistic acrobats and poetry-on-demand and group-art projects, literary clowns, live readings, and all sorts of craziness. (Free wine and beer too.) The smaller, East coast release event will be part of LitCrawl NYC on September 15th in Manhattan. We really hope you can make it to either if you're in the area. More details soon.
Our printer emailed us yesterday, admitting they are a bit behind schedule, the books will be Finished on August 9th, arrive to us by mid-August, arrive to you by the end of August!
I hope by know you have checked out our revamped website that you helped build. It has filled with all sorts of cool content and functionality, including a dirty letter writing service for you long-distance lovers or short-distance perverts.
You will be receiving a couple more updates about the release events and one when your rewards ship out!
Sorry about the delays and hope everyone is well,
Just letting you know I'm still alive and theNewerYork is gettin' born! It is already being printed and should be in my hands in 6 weeks. And, as a teaser, I posted a stunted PDF of the book here: http://issuu.com/roshuajaab/docs/theneweryork2
