The Spotlight

September 2011 - Immedium

1. News

A. Burning the Man on Monday
On Labor Day is the 25th lighting of the iconic structure of Burning Man, which now rises more than 5 stories off the ground.

See more amazing images from this festival, which temporarily becomes the 10th biggest city in the state of Nevada, in the new edition of our coffee table book Desert to Dream.

"Traub's approach to her images is appropriately eclectic, yielding photographs as colorful as the festival itself and accentuating Burning Man's surreality, whimsy, and play with the occasional fish-eye lens. The night shots that make up the latter third of the book abandon all restraint and explode in color and light."
- Publishers Weekly

This is an ideal memento for the Burner in your life, or gift for friends who enjoy the amazing rainbow of contemporary art and culture.

B. Be a monster with Attaboy
Attaboy's has enjoyed reading his book You Might be a Monster: and other Stories I Made Up so much, that he's wants everyone to become a monster.

"a perfect hip gift for yourself or some kids in need of inspired imagination. Not to mention it may make all those 'monsters' seem a little less scary." - Eclectix Arts

The transformation is fast and fun, and will make an easy Halloween costume! Just order an autographed book and we'll send you a FREE "monster mouth" mask.

Mash your mandibles to your heart's content. If you email us a photo of yourself on your "beast" behavior, then we'll post it online.

C. Event Highlights!
We're out and about at more popular, annual Bay Area venues. Catch us at:

a. San Francisco Dragon Boat festival on Treasure Island (www.sfdragonboat.com), September 17 & 18th.

We always have a fantastic time greeting fans, families, and our fair share of 120 dragon boat teams and 3,500 dragon boat paddlers. We'll celebrate the upcoming 2012 Year of the Dragon early, with a special limited edition Year of the Dragon "boat" T-shirt!

b. Babes & Babies shopping event, Jewish Community Center (www.jccsf.org), September 25th.

The best baby shower, birthday, and holiday presents are our books. Expectant and new moms, supportive spouses, and proud grandparents enjoy getting and giving our kid-friendly adventures.

c. Alternative Press Expo (www.comic-con.org/ape), San Francisco Concourse, October 1-2nd.

We exhibit at APE for the first time (Booth 611, south side, upper deck, middle!). We'll share posters and shirts with new readers who appreciate independent publishers, fantastic artwork, and cool storytelling.

"Billie discovers that you can't grow flowers when you are not happy, and the best recipe for happiness and success is to be true to yourself. Billie the Unicorn is sure to appeal to children ages 4-8, and their parents will enjoy reading it with their children."
- Midwest Book Review
