Honorable lord,
you'll have to talk to the ladies illuminating for me. Neither are doing
cover art at the moment - and I'm sure that they would be pleased to work on
Voices of the Star 2 as well. I'll forward your email on to them. On
collaboration - I'll ask those who send me songs if they would like their
songs to be sent on to you as well for Voices of the Star. I do have a bit
of a deadline set for us though - I want this book together by august so I
can get it out to the troops and populace in time for eveyone to have at
least seen it before next years gulf war.
I would love to collaborate with you - I had no idea another voices of the
Star was in progress. Do you have any songs that would apply towards the War
book that the writers wouldn't mind being in both? We could get those
illuminated with the rest - and then the illumination can ride over into the
Voice of the Star.
what do you think?
