So, the brett “Fish” anderson written book, ‘i, church’ is coming soon and the teasers and pre-show snacks will continue to drop to hopefully give you all a taste and make you excited for what is to come…

i was hoping for an end Feb release, but in the interests of not rushing it and having the perfect launch i am now looking at the end of March and hoping this is the final date shift. Still some small mistakes to be fixed like an horrendous one you might find in this book cover pic, but otherwise we are good and ready to go.

Hopefully launch details will follow soon – definitely be a big party in Cape Town once i can figure out the venue and possibly an intimate one in Stellenbosch/Somerset West and then if i can find a not-too-crazy-expensive way to get to Durban, a launch there and ditto for Joburg/Pretoria…

i showed the cover pic last week which still has some tiny tweakage to be done, as does this back cover, but this is largely what it is going to look like, come release day.

i am super stoked for the work of my team [Heather Bailey and Linda Martindale with a class cameo performance by Kirsten Sims on Cover Design and big help from tbV with the wording] and something that was ‘pretty decent and ready to go’ even just a month ago feels like it is heading towards ‘Really great looking and feeling and can’t wait to release this on the masses.’ Which, as the author, is obviously a great feeling.

Does this look like something you’d be up to reading? Coming soon to a coffee-serving place near you…

You know Hollywood? A year and a half before a movie comes out, drops you a teaser trailer just to let you know the thing is happening but not giving you much more than a taste of what that thing is about…

Well i have been working on finishing up a book that i wrote years and years and years ago, and then rewrote years and years ago and then finally rewrote and finished three years ago just before we left to go to Americaland…

Since we returned to South Africa in August last year, just for the fun of it, i rewrote it again, or more just tightened it up and took out some stuff and added some stuff, and it has slowly been crawling its way towards self-publication since then.

But Aslan is on the move… or more excitingly [for me], ‘i, church’ is on the move and if everything comes together, then hoping for an end Feb release, but if not then more likely the end of March, as March is a bit of a busy month with Improv festivals and international family visits and cycle tours [eek!]

So as we head down the final straight, i thought it would be good to start sharing some glimpses of what there is to expect from ‘i, church’ when it finally arrives.

There is still a little bit of tweaking to be done to this, but consider this the teaser trailer for the cover of the book, with the title and possibly my name added at some stage – this stunning work of art [the robot man has stubble!!!] was done by my good friend Kirsten Sims who is an excellent artist…

So watch this space, or more importantly the spaces that will follow this space in the days and weeks to come, and i will hopefully see you at the launch or launches…

And for more of the amazing work that Kirsten does you can take a look at her page over here.
