Our publishing house’s first book Nicosia in Dark and White won a prestigious POYi Book of the Year award

It snowed in Nicosia (this happens less often than a leap year)

Wrote a new short story

Spent all Saturday in Troodos playing with the snow [snow angel not pictured]

A good week indeed

Snow falling on tropical trees and our little fish pond

I made these as a tribute to Bill Watterson

It’s only January but things have already been real busy.

A lot of new writing and lots of different projects in development. We are making travel plans for later in the year.   Book Ex Machina is getting a site revamp.

But here’s a little sneak preview of a tasty literary treat we call Matchbook Stories.

Each matchbook is a  tiny story in prose or poetry form. They are stories about meetings fleeting and temporary, about moments and places, invoking the feeling of real matchbooks. A few words that can be carried in a pocket and shared with a friend, or perhaps a stranger.

The first four made their debut in a Nicosia Christmas market. But there will be more on the way.

To kick off the project me and Matchbook Stories poetry editor Lee Jing-Jing contributed two each. Mine: Paris, Las Vegas and Cha Cha Chicken. Jing’s: An Old Wives’ Tale and Last Fall.

In due time we will post ways to buy and submission guidelines. But in the meantime, this is a sneak preview.

I give you…
a film of a Mysterious Pier.


 

I actually made this film last month when I was playing with my new pinhole cap. It just took a while to figure out how to edit it… Not bad for first try ever, no?
 
Some previous unedited but very fun attempts san pinhole in reverse chronological order:
 
 
Fanfarlo. They’re [relatively] new and shiny and really good. I hope to see them again this year.
 

 
And of course The Flaming Lips. One of the best bands to see live, ever. (Happy birthday, Wayne! ♥)
 

 
Happy new year, readers and friends. May it be the best one yet.

xoxo
