Please stay tuned to the Barnyard for ordering information, blurbs from some of your favorites, and perhaps a mini-essay review from Jared Hayes!? In the meantime, enjoy the wonderful cover art by a great Atlanta-area artist Dayna Thacker (above), and (below), the amusingly serious response by the printers to the "erasure issue" of the cover's name/title designed by BlazeVox Editor Geoffrey Gatza and myself. (We hope not the last provocation this book incites. In a friendly peaceful way, of course.)
.
Thanks, and see you soon!
Love, Andy

Hello Geoffrey,
.
Prepress and the Production team has paused this title in system pending a revised cover due to the design element over the title and author name. I realize you advised the element is intentional and I communicated accordingly to Prepress. Since that time, the cover file has been reviewed by both the Prepress Manager and Production Manager. The finding is the cover will fail production when printing as previously advised in the file review notes (copied below again for reference), therefore we are unable to move forward with the current cover file.
.
We will need to ask you to provide a revised cover file with the "erased" design element removed, or we can have our graphics team revised (sic) the cover, if this would be helpful. Attached is low res cover file as for reference of the requested change for your review.
.
File Review Notes:
"We have reviewed the files submitted for this title and there is one concern that needs to be addressed before we can move forward. The title on the front cover is difficult to read and could appear to be a production error when printing. Please upload a revised file ensuring that the title is easily read. Thank you for your understanding. Please upload a revised cover file for further review. "
.
I apologize for the inconvenience this may cause as a result of this development.
Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation.
