Printrun #2 and a few new REVIEWS

6 Jul

Well well well … I had 500 copies of The Long Weekend printed in March of this year … my initial thoughts was, well that should keep me going for about 2 years or so, its such an obscure book that it’ll be a slow-burner at best.

But then I sold out in 2 months.

Which took me somewhat by surprise … a GOOD surprise … but a surprise nonetheless.

So I have now printed 1000 copies for the second print-run, again at a Hobart-based printer (gotta keep printing skills in the local neighbourhood, less and less books are being printed in our local community which is really sad). This time, it’ll be sent to some bookstores, rather than sell them just myself at booklaunches and whatnot so perhaps a different buncha people will get to the books, hope so!

Melbourne booklaunch pics

2 Jun

Thursday night last week I flew like crazy from Hobart to Melbourne, jumped in a taxi with a funny driver to Readings where I met my parents, my brother, Bernard Caleo, Peter Foster and Sue and wolfed down a pizza at Trotters before running across the street to have a booklaunch – here’s Bernard in his white suit.

And here is me, a touch nervous … but doing a better job than I did in Alice Springs.

On Saturday the 11th of May РCraig San Roque joined  Josh Santospirito for a bit of a chat with some interested people about things to do with the comic.

Interestingly enough – about 30 people showed up … which was pretty awesome. Here’s some photos by Nadine Kessler.
