New book galleys, casting calls, and hip baby music

The galleys for my new book, Masterpieces of Beat Literature , showed up today. The publication date has been posted as Dec 30, 2006. So much for my short respite from deadlines...

My brother and his wife had a baby last week. As a gift, I'm thinking Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of The Cure or Rockabye Baby: Lullaby Renditions of Tool

There's a second casting call for local film Schism:
Films are rarely made about the residents of an assisted living community or the elderly in general. Sadly, these people are sometimes treated like second class citizens, a burden to their families, and oftentimes forgotten entirely. Our film will center on these wonderful and colorful characters, often full of life and energy, but held back only by circumstances beyond their control. The intent of the film is not to show the staff or facility in a bad light, but to realistically portray the hard work that the staff does on a daily basis and to show the struggles that the residents [sic] experience
Show up Saturday September 9th, 12-5PM, at the Erie Playhouse Rehearsal Hall, 919 State St. Erie, PA
