No, I didn’t sell my very minor cult classic to Hollywood (yet), but there is news. We (this is a team effort) are giving Loisaida a facelift. Changes are slightly more than cosmetic. There is a new cover on the electronic and will be one soon for the print version, and mo’ betta formatting on both. This time we hired a pro. A few proofreading errors that had been long corrected on the ebook will finally be fixed on the paperback, and a few more very newly discovered typos will be fixed on all versions.
