With November fast approaching, I’ve decided to piece together a collection of my works and self-publish.
I do this as an exploration of method, not as an attempt to defy the odds and make my fortune or become famous through self-publishing. If it were a serious attempt at publication, it wouldn’t be called Detritus.
The collection’s official title will be : Salvatore Ambulando’s Detritus
I will not explain the meaning of the title. There is no meaning. ; F
You are not me, and I am a strange man with an inappropriately obscure intent.
As I work on piecing together the collection, I will be reworking a good deal of material that you may have already seen here, or on a past blog if you’ve followed me this far.
My intent is to post a story from the collection weekly until publication is imminent – free for you for a week, then available only in the collection.
Additionally, should you happen to be an artist of skill, or even lack thereof, and you wish to create a one-page illustration for a story you like, I’d be happy to put it in the collection with credits. If not, I will be commissioning an artist for both the cover and each story just before publication.
Your reactions are welcomed, critical or otherwise.
First piece follows … now.
