i want you, yes you there on the other side of the internet, i want your creativity, your talent, your passion, your verve! i want to collaborate with you in a special way:
so i have a new story i want to have oj publish. but i’d like some cover art. i’d like your cover art and what do i want to give you?
attribution on the cover and in the text
the chance to dedicate your cover art to yourself, a loved one, a pet
a thank you note from me (i’ll break out the crane’s stationery for this)
and the right to say “yeah, i spent last week working on a book” which gets you out of having to explain why you didn’t get your midterm paper written
so here’s what you do: email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or just leave a comment here. i will send you a file. read it. send me artwork in the form of a jpg (at least i think that’s what oj would want). we have a tight deadline so what are you waiting for?
oh, yes, i nearly forgot:

I’m not sure how talented I am, but I have done some photo collages — some of which I have posted on my page from time to time. It tends to be kind of surreal, but I can send you some samples if you like.

oj dorson is setting it up so that there will be ipad compatibility. check with me later or i will post independently about that! and many thanks!

Crowd-sourcing at its most intimate and personal. Lovely.
I can’t offer to do a cover design but I’d still love to read your story if you could send me a file.
I’m guessing that The Archivist hasn’t changed much since I read it a while back. If it has, let me know and I’ll get the new version and check it our again.

i noticed that grocery stores are now offering black easter jelly beans without the pesky red, pink, green or white ones. i should have mailed a package to you! the story is very nearly the same but i am very happy with what oj has managed to accomplish with it and i hope that the next book will be just as much fun and collaborative!
