Book Update

Well, we are getting pretty close to the publication of POP GOES KOREA (nee KOREA POP WARS). I am currently grinding my way through a reback of the entire book, which can be a little interesting (to see what an editor did with my words), but is mostly tedious (because of what the editor did with my words).

Once I get through all of this, then I just need to finish off a snapshots section and I am pretty much done. I believe Stone Bridge will send me a copy of the page proofs some time in April, for one last fact check. And then we will be done.

Of the writing, anyway. I gather the marketing department intends on giving the book something of a push, so it could be I get some new publicity responsibilities. Not sure what that might entail, but I will do what is needed to help the book sell.

I think POP GOES KOREA could be on store shelves in May. If not, then June.

I suppose I should be thinking of the next book...

Oranckay "Wang"? Who died and made you wang?

When are you going to update your blog, anyhow? Some of us have been waiting for King Oranckay's great thoughts on Lee Myung-bak for some time now...

Mark, look closer and you'll notice that Oranckay has not been crowned.

Either he is presenting his contribution as a part of a dialogue as in Classical Chinese (왈/曰, "says"), or he may be barking (왈!왈!) at your book.

As for myself, I'm really looking forward to read the book; that's the topic that needs most updating in my knowledge of Korea...

Okay, that's embarrassing. That's what I get for trying to be witty when I'm tired. Thank for the clarification, Antti.
