I'm sorry to say that I was laid off from my job at the magazine earlier this week.
Ironic that this is April Fool's Day, but nope, not a joke. I really don't have a job anymore. I am, however, going to start freelancing like crazy though. So if anybody needs a writer along the lines of Fake Book Covers...well, shit, let me know. Freelancing sounds like a damn good deal. Competitive, yes, but a good deal nonetheless.
So far, unemployment is pretty rad. My roommates, friends and I sat in the backyard grass, drinking cheap beer and shooting bottle with BB guns while listening to The Band.
Though I have much more free time to make fake book covers and their excerpts, I have no access to Photoshop. And this whole website really was just the mindless creation of boredom at my job.
So, for now, www.fakebookcovers.com will be on temporary hiatus.
One day, I figure I'll get some copy of Photoshop and start this nonsense up again. It was a lot of fun and it kept me writing every day though. But for now, I have no way of doing it.
I hope I at least entertained a few people. I tried to balance celebrity gossip, fiction and poetry, and will do so again if/when this site is making the rounds again.
