2011 begins — some plans & thoughts of things to come

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

FIRST OF ALL: I have a short video greetings for 2011 if you want to have a look click here.


NOW.
For those paying attention, all five of you, after serializing Brussegem, a snug hell during the last limping weeks of 2010, I’m looking at this as my publishing schedule for 2011:


THE BOY IN THE SANDWICH (children’s fiction)
HOW TO FIND YOURSELF (illustrated version)
Stories on Stuff (Dot Hippo – kid’s textiles)
THE NICE GUY (first novel)
SLICES (novel on business)
INTIMATE DIALOGUES (short stories)
Stories on Stuff (Polite babies)
THE NEXT GENIUS (Novel on artist)
THE BLUE SPOT IN MY HEAD (Part One in fictionalized trilogy)
Stories on Stuff (3 & 4 – kid’s for Christmas)


“The Boy in the Sandwich” will be presented for the world to lick and look at very shortly. Will be putting some free chapters online on a weekly basis, along with audio clips from the novel.


The comes the new, illustrated version of “How to Find Yourself (or a reasonable facsimile)”.
Maybe a couple of chapters of that, too (again), and me reading some chapters. Also free and weekly.


These two books were supposed to see the light of day toward the end of last year, but things got reshuffled and re-organized. The first “How to” book had to be fully reformatted and laid-out due to errors I wrote about somewhere in this blog during the last year. We can’t have that again, so took time to reorganize the publishing work flow. I thought each book would take three months from finished manuscript to launch, but there’s far too much to do properly; properly takes time. So now I’m aiming at a four month launch of each book, from final period to book available.


And adjust accordingly if that still doesn’t supply enough space & time. See whether I actually keep to the publishing schedule this year….


As I have had occasion to mention: I have well over a decade of experience in international publishing in one of the top three media companies. But it is one thing being part of a system, and being the whole system oneself. So refinement in my hidden people venture was called for. To Get It Right. And no doubt this, like life, will be an on-going process.


Beyond books, next up is a final setting up with audio book distributors as I have three audio books just about done and wanting life. Same with my Stories on Stuff T-shirts and textiles and whatnot spin-offs (with “Boy in the Sandwich” and “How to” coming fully born with illustrations…).


Meanwhile, I’m thinking up stories on t-shirts and for kid’s nightwear. Then I want to make a video, or write a play, or write a 300 word story. So that’s what I do: Whatever Comes Up Next.


Thanks for dropping by and reading. –Vincent

AUDIO–Don’t Call Me Fluffy: Interview with a Cat

Monday, June 28th, 2010




Just a little while ago I wrote and posted a short-short story (read HERE) about a cat complaining about human behavour towards his person.


It has been one of the more popular stories that I’ve posted. So I thought I’d start recording and posting some of my favorites and reader favorites from the “Noses in the House” stories.


And we’re starting with pissed-off Fluffy: Listen (and/or download) here: Don’t Call Me Fluffy!


It’s less than four minutes.


Enjoy and thanks for dropping by. Don’t forget to leave a comment below!

Part Three, 3.3, audio book excerpt from “Self-Portrait of Someone Else”

Monday, June 21st, 2010

Podcast of Vincent Eaton's Self-Portrait of Someone Else


Here’s the last excerpt of this book I’ll be running here. it is the conclusion of the long chapter 3 in part three of “Self-Portrait of Someone Else”
PodCast: PART THREE – 3.3 of “Self-Portrait of Someone Else


With this excerpt, I come to the end of my series of podcasts of this book. We’re almost halfway through the book, and by now you, kind reader-listener, get the idea. I am still in the midst of reviewing several online audiobook sales channels, and will make the complete audio book available when I’ve completed editing all the clips–a time-consuming job.


I hope you have enjoyed them. To the point where you will someday go to my publishing site, HIDDEN PEOPLE and purchase the version you wish (print, ebook/Kindle, audio), when it is all available…


Next up in my series of podcasts will be a handful of my “Noises in the House” short-shorts. After that, I’ll be launching my next novel, “Brussegem, a snug hell” and will release excerpts of the whole book over the summer. That’s the plan.


Thanks for reading this. Vincent
