I found out I was chosen to be in the upcoming TRIBUTE ai-ap web gallery for 2009. Hotness!


News on my book:

Autumn - the collected works of Ray Jones 2007-2009, 8x10 and 42 pages. --The book contains work from my "book project" -Peaceoffering, as well as the TBFL (to bury future lovers) series now simply known as Autumn.

I decided to publish my book through Blurb.com. The paperback is $29.95 not including shipping. I'm making a $5 profit from each book-- so if you buy one when its released, you're essentially buying me a meal haha. I'm waiting for my first proof to come to me on May 4th, I'll post details on ordering here if I'm happy with the turn out.
