Check Out “The Poet and the Flea”!!!

---Silhouettes

Yesterday, I posted the 20th page of The Poet and the Flea… What!? Wow!!

The Flea premiered online November 28th, 2012 and has already received more than 10,000 views.

I have been honored to received a number of wonderful reviews thus far, such as those by Sarah Goode and Hannah Meiklejohn, as well as an incredible invitation to speak to The Blake Society in London this coming May.

Self-publishing The Flea online has been an incredible experience so far and I thank everyone for their enthusiasm and support!

Best wishes,

G. E.

Fluffernutter Oval

Ladies & Gentlemen:

On behalf of my humble keeper Miss G. E. Gallas — I, Mr. Edgar Lawrence Fluffernutter™, would like to graciously thank you for your generous patronage.

Miss Gallas is flabbergasted that our supporters have doubled in a matter of two or three months, and is unwavering in her determination to sustain the quality of this enterprise.

Although I have little knowledge of these newfangled contraptions, it is to my understanding that there are additional entities (thepoetandtheflea.wordpress.com) where one might extend one’s support, and I would be much obliged if you were to kindly do so.

Your modest nocturnal mammal,

E. L. Fluffernutter™

Plans for Halloween

I have always loved Halloween. Dressing up, trick-or-treating, jack-o’-lanterns, et cetera, et cetera. Perhaps that’s because I would watch Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas on VHS over and over and over again as an impressionable 6-year-old.

I believe my all-time best Halloween costume as a child was The Patchwork Girl of Oz. I read L. Frank Baum’s book that summer — I think I was most impressed by the idea of the “Square Meal Tablet.” For the costume, I just remember my mom helping me stitch “doll seams” into pink stockings — a bit like Sally from Nightmare.

I love Halloween so much that, in high school, I wrote a graphic novel called Every Day Should Be Halloween. The basic premise was about a high schooler plagued not only metaphorically but literally by a monkey on his back. I never finished the series… But I completed the written script, the character designs, the costume designs, and a rough sketch outline (see above) of every last page (a little over a hundred in total).

Disclaimer: I do not own this image!!

Now, my default costume is Daria Morgendorffer, as in MTV’s animated series Daria (see above). I label this “default” since I just pull from my closet a number of articles from my high school days and voilà!!! This year, it’s a particularly fortunate costume since Wes told me his very first crush was on Daria (´∀`)♡ (okay, I admit it — I totally had a crush on Trent; and Wes does an uncanny impression of the Mystik Spiral vocalist).

Anyway, here’s a sneak peak of my costume…
