added a couple of fantastic new links to the links page of my website - check them out.
i might add some new images to the gallery too today (maybe). also stand by for a new blog that i have in the pipeline.
ps. have you noticed that that picture of me to the right looks like i have one eyebrow raised a la the rock?

an interview with me apparently went to air on rhema today at 3.10. i went to auckland last week and i also had an interview with the challenge weekly newspaper. that will run in the next two weeks.
sales of the book have gone pretty well and i don't have all that many books left. so if you want one you best get on over to www.andrewkillick.com and get ordering.
meanwhile, you can also check out the blog of my poetry colleague mr mark laurent (musician and poet).

i reckon everything has turned out pretty cool on the website and there's more on there than just the poetry book, so take a look around.
finally i can have a bit of a rest - it has all been a right mission in some ways. although, on friday i'm heading up to auckland to deliver stock of the books to the distributors and do a radio interview about the book (radio rhema at 4.10pm on friday).
i'll let you know how things go.

so i worked until 1.30am this morning on the website so that everything is ready to go when the books go out next week.
the next time you read a post here everything will be go - books available and website live. stay tuned.

the company i work for - castle publishing - will be co-distributing the book, which is good for getting it into the bookshops. doing quick maths in my head - i will probably need a reprint quite quickly - possibly even before christmas (i am doing a limited number to make sure i don't end up with boxes in the garage).
i spent five hours working on one image for the frontpage interface of the website a couple of nights ago. looks great and i'm very pleased with it.
then i got diverted trying to work out how to have an email form on the site. got caught up in the intricacies of working with cgi script and stuff. i found a nice little free cgi email script (here) and am on a crash course on how to get this stuff to work - this is my first experience with it. anyway, i thought i had it all sweet but in testing tonight it wasn't working, so i have emailed a guru to see what i need to do. hopefully nothing too major.
that's the sum. nothing on the headphones tonight because my head is hurting a bit.

this is a picture out of the collage that i drew a couple of nights ago. it will take you to this blog - or maybe the links page. not 100% sure yet, but probably the blog.
the computer is some sort of old 80s 'radio shack' thing. i went hunting for images on the web.
on the headphones: 'superstylin' by groove armada, from the album 'goodbye country'. www.groovearmada.com
there were a couple of tweekages needed - i'm getting a heavier stock for the cover (250gsm instead of 200gsm) so that will make it right nice.
the printers are busy and are talking about not having it finished until next week or so. not much to be done about it - but hopefully i'll have it a little earlier than that.
i commenced work on my website... i'll chuck another post up shortly with a little pic off the frontpage that i did a couple of nights ago.
on the headphones: 'i belong to june' by brahm, from the album 'curves'.
