It is done

After months of pondering, rewrites and hard work I’ve finally wrapped up my submission for Side B, a musical anthology! This eight-page story gives readers an insight into how the music of Alison Sudol -aka A Fine Frenzy– has influenced my life.

You might remember I posted the first page a while ago. Well, that version was axed completely.

There was just no flow in the story, so I rewrote it with a little help from the Art & Story crew, and what came out ended up a lot more personal than I thought I’d be comfortable with. But I think it’s a solid tale now, one that needed to be told.

A few samples:

Side B, a musical anthology is scheduled to be in bookstores across the US roughly around spring 2009. I’ll keep you guys posted.
