Bookbinding

Two_This_Pages.jpgI printed out, punched holes in, sewed, and bound another version of This Page! This time things fit together better but I discovered why on the first one the textblock and covers were of offending sizes. The template I used to make the backcloth covers was too small. I noticed it when the second version experienced the same problem as the first one. 

The main question I have now is why was my A6-size template for book covers off by so much? Or, better, why did I use it twice (or more!) before finding out it was too small? Or, even better, did I make it wrong to begin with?

Fiction

I have worked a bit on two novels, Fear Itself and Dark Death. However, I depressed myself on the number of the as-of-yet incomplete and unfinished novels I have spinning in the air like so many plates on a talent show. Let me list the ones I can remember:

  • Fear Itself - Book One of The Fear trilogy. Fear Zero, Book One, is available. Check below,
  • Fear The Dead - Book Two of The Fear trilogy,
  • Dark Death - Book One of the Vengeance trilogy,
  • Botchan’s Bartender - Book One of the Japan Quintet (of which Books Two to Five are finished! Yeah!),
  • Caraculiambro - a mystery/conspiracy stand-alone novel whose main character is a giant ala Andre the Giant but a private detective. The character’s name and some activities he’s involved in were snatched from Don Quixote. I like the characters and the plot. I really want to wish it someday. Again, maybe in this century, right? I have two books based somewhat, circling around, as it were, Don Quixote. This one and Giapan, Book Five of the Japan Quintet

Of course, I’ve been doing my best to avoid writing anything for NaNoWriMo. I haven’t even gone to its website to see what is going on. Lazy me, I suspect.
