lizardek's obiter dictum lizardek Home Now Then Friends Info Ek Family
zird is the word [userpic]
I realize this is really bad timing, judging from the tumbleweeds currently blowing through my own wallet, but I can finally make mention here, since I've just verified that all my family members have received and unwrapped their Christmas presents.

Remember all that editing I was so mysteriously working on over the course of the past year?

It was this: lizardek's obiter dictum — best of 2003-2006

And if there is anyone who just can't get enough (and my jaw will permanently dislocate if so), there is also The Complete Works (to date).

I know these are not really of overwhelming interest to anyone but my family and myself, but it still gives me a little thrill to hold my own words in my hands and look at the shiny covers and stick my nose in between the pages and inhale that new print smell. Books! By me! *squee*

Very cool!! I might actually buy the best of ;-) How does shipping work though?

I didn't have any problem with my came through just fine, shipped overseas. There's no extra cost on the book itself, it's the publisher's price (I don't make anything on it), and the shipping is whatever the usual price is, which wouldn't be much for one book. I ordered several copies when I ordered them originally so it was more expensive because the total weighed so much. :)


I'm ordering mine. Yay!


Yay, indeed! :)

wow thats pretty cool! congrats on your published works :)

Thank you! I know it's just a journal, but still, I'm pretty pleased!


Congrats! Looks like a fun venture!


Thanks! The editing of all those books was a lot of work, but I'm very pleased with the results!

It looks good, congratulations!

thank you! :)

How did you manage to download all the text from your journal btw, so it was easy to edit?

I did PDFs for each year from and then reformatted and edited in InDesign.

What a cool thing!



Congratulations! It must feel soooo good to be holding your new "book-baby"! I wish you bunches of sales!

How tremendously cool -- Congratulations! (And what a fantastic amount of work -- I am impressed beyond words!)

How cool Liz. Congrats, that's quite a feat! :) The 3 books I have currently will be an enjoyable diversion when I need some unwinding time. Of course, that's in between all the reading from a couple courses and normal emails, business correspondence, etc... ;)

Have a wonderful New Year!
