Tweet to #EdwardAdamJohn this week, while they’re on their book tour, and tell them what to draw. They’ll draw it and post it to Instagram. Any subject — all is fair game!
I had the chance to ask John Dermot Woods some questions about his new book, Activities, a stunning and evocative collection of comics. Not having a lot of experience with comics, this was probably the most challenging book PGP has put together. But John knows his stuff, and we took our time with it, and the printer did a great job, and the results are amazing. Check out this sample of the book and then read our interview.
One thing Publishing Genius authors are doing over the course of the year is interviewing each other in a chain. In this installment, Matthew Savoca (author of the winning novel I Don’t Know I Said talks to Matt Cook about his collection of poetry. At one point, Matt says, “I’m wondering if I have fifteen minutes of reality in me somewhere.”
Reading Matt Cook is like hanging out in his brain, and hanging out in Matt Cook’s brain is like…reading Matt Cook. Essentially, it’s an Ouroboros of awesome.
