Captain Trips Redux
Which reminds me: An author recently solicited me to do a book cover and possibly interior illustrations for their novel. I wrote back expressing interest, and they sent me more information on their book. I was still considering -- leaning toward taking the job -- when they withdrew the offer because I hadn't answered their second e-mail quickly enough. We're talking a matter of three or four days, not weeks. At first I felt bad, but then I realized that I have always been a terrible correspondent and probably wouldn't have worked well anyway with someone who requires a level of e-punctuality I cannot deliver. I quite like the idea of doing illustrations, though.
