Well, it’s come to this – if General Motors hadn’t filed for bankruptcy on the same day as us, we would have been the big headline. With our October 1, 2009 release date near, we are rushing to raise funds for our upcoming work retitled as Mayonnaise in My Cake and Other Holiday Delights. So Lit Between the Ears is turning to its readers, listeners, and partners for support.
Less than one dollar
For only 99 cents, you can help keep a radio dramatist employed, buy an ink cartridge for his printer, and replace the bulb in his desk lamp that burns out every seven days.
You can also be part of creating Mayonnaise in My Cake, the second volume of the Lit Between the Ears anthology series. Mayonnaise is being assembled publicly on our blog. As of today’s date, Mayonnaise is a list of ingredients and may be found at the following link:
We’ve also had one of the plays scheduled for Mayonnaise in My Cake and Other Delights selected for Viral Cat, the Literary E-ZINE (in the alley between High Art Inc. and Low Art ‘R Us). SWING FOR THE FENCES appeared in the April 2009 issue which may be found here:
Only 99 cents
Ninety-nine cents helps cover some of the costs associated with the book such as layout, editing, and proofreading. We are also doing preliminary work on identifying artwork for the front and back covers. Click the link below to donate 99 cents:
Don’t believe it? Consider our first book
The first book – Chekhov, O. Henry, Spear and Tarkington On the Air – was published in July of 2006. It includes original and adapted works, cast lists and synopses, and a glossary of radio drama terms.
The entire contents of the book may be found at the following link:
