Greetings all from Austin, TX. A brief update on the goings-on regarding Virgogray. We had a bit of a hiccup recently when the AC Jack on our computer broke. Fortunately, everything was backed up, but having put the machine in the shop and waiting for a part took some precious time. We are now scrambling to get his book out to you now that we are back online. We appreciate the graciousness of the author and his many fans for their patience, but one thing for certain is it is quite a collection to look forward. We are proud to have Justin Blackburn back with us (we previously published his collection “Farting Fire”– our best selling title which is up for a re-release probably next year), and I know there will be much to look forward to once this project gets rolling.
Another new publication that will be quick on the heels of Justin Blackburn’s “You Are Not a Normal Human Being,” is “Sinister Splashplay” by David S. Pointer. I can tell you for a fact, we are very excited about this publication which is a long time in the coming from a very talented poet and writer who has bright future in the writing world. I imagine things are just getting underway for Mr. Pointer, who has been a constant contributor to Virgogray Press for a number of years now. This consummation between poet and press is indeed a long in the coming and something to look forward.
More news coming soon. Stay tuned…
