So as to not limit knowledge to those who are members of the community (omikuji_project ), I have two Omikuji-related announcements to make.
1. Omikuji will now come out on the 15th of every month, because practically everything in my world is due on one first or another, and it's been impossible to make that deadline. Everything will stay the same, just on the 15th instead of the 1st.
2. On April 1st, I will be releasing an anthology of all the Omikuji stories to date. There has been discussion of what form this will take on the community, so if you are not a member, please do join. It will definitely include all the stories, and excerpts from the letters that accompany them. The introduction will be written via the classic each-person-writes-a-line game over on omikuji_project .
I am still seeking cover art--there was talk of an Omikuji-member created art piece for each story, but unless they're all spoken for I don't think that's workable, so let me know if you want to claim a story or create a cover design. If you have any skills that would be of help (interior layout as well, hollaback.) One Omikuji-soul has already recorded an audio version of one story--if people want to take this on, I'd be thrilled to put out a crowdsourced audio anthology as well! But I want the Omikuji family involved in this as much as possible.
The anthology will come out through Lulu. Which makes this my first officially self-published project. I felt it was best, as this has always been a grassroots, crowfunded creation, to continue in that vein and not seek a press to publish it. Lulu puts out a good product and I'm hoping this will be a beautiful object as well as a testament to two years of family, love, wax, paper, and art. Thank you to everyone who has made it possible.
I will likely put one of these out for every two years that the Omikuji Project continues.
Finally, if you are new and confused and do not know what the Omikuji Project is, all the info is on my website.
