Ark Codex ±0 launch

For those near NYC, I’ll be coming soon to launch the newest Calamari book, Ark Codex ±0:

• on February 28, from 7-10 pm, there will be a launch mixer/exhibit in NYC at Lolita Bar  &
• on March 3 at 8 pm there will be a launch party, featuring Tempers, at Collab (304 Hudson st, 6th floor)(please RSVP to this one)

For those not in NYC, the (physical) book is now available (at 25% off) on Amazon or as a pay-what-you-want digital book.

I’m also getting this tattooed on my belly for the occasion:

    Derek, I wish I could be in New York for the celebration and the camaraderie (and the belly tattoo), but it ain’t gonna work, so I reckon what I’ll do is I’ll buy Ark Codex ±0 and buy, say, a bottle of Taittinger and make some little things to eat. Then I’ll eat and drink and try not to spill on the book. And maybe I’ll draw a picture on my belly.

    Oh, and lift a toast. Here’s to you!

    I like the Ark Codex ±0 trailer. I like book trailers (when they’re good). Also, “book trailer” reminds me of “bookmobile”.

    Thanks Sheila. Did you know Bookmobile printed the book? I haven’t actually even seen it yet, but i hear it looks nice. Spilling on the book is encouraged!

    Oh, that’s great, Derek — about Bookmobile. No, I did not know. I was just goofing.

    I will make sure to spill once my copy of the book arrives.

    Derek, I mean to get a copy. Just that household funds are a little short just now.
