I’m feeling sort of sorry for poor cover artists who have to work with me directly, because I’m terribly finicky. OTOH, Tara O’Shea found an amazing model for the OLD RACES: ORIGINS e-book collection cover, and has made a gorgeous, gorgeous cover for it (which I am finicking about :)). I am so very glad for the Magick 4 Terri auction that introduced me to Tara, ’cause I am SO HAPPY with the covers she’s doing. Yay!

A Twitter discussion just now made me go scour the intartubes to see if *anybody* is making a chair-mounted split keyboard like mine anymore (picture here, though that’s not actually mine). As far as I can tell, no one is. I tell you what, if somebody created a boutique shop for those things, they would sell. I live in fear of mine dying, and from comments around teh intarwebs, so does everybody else who has one. How does one go about creating a small boutique shop for this kind of thing? (Much like one goes about making a small fortune in publishing, I expect: start with a large one.)

Let’s see. Yep, yep, yep, nope, that’s it. Got nothin’ else right now. :)

That chair keyboard...huh. Never seen anything like that before.

I got mine...7 years ago, I think. I love it, and it has made a *significant* difference to the pinched nerve in my shoulder.

Out of curiosity, did you get it before leaving the old country and immigrating, or after?
kitmizkit on May 11th, 2012 01:36 pm (UTC)
Before. I brought it with me. :)

I *so* need to get my hands on you. :P

Oh, said she of the currently painfully stiff neck, how I wish.

*rub rub*

I'm keeping an eye on 2014, just FYI. I doubt I can make it come to fruition, but . . . it's not entirely outside the range of possibility these days. I just need to know what to budget for.

Fair warning, though: if I come, I'm totally crashing at your pad. :P

I can see the appeal of that keyboard, though it would kill my shoulders.
And a good cover is a gift and a joy.

The chair arm keyboard trays appear to be available in various sizes and configurations from ergo direct.

Here is one, but they have a lot of sizes. Or is that not what you meant.

Oh, I like her work a lot. Lovely and rich without being too much. Good typography.
