Meet Tommy: Ready to Print!!!

So the book, Meet Tommy: An Exploration of Private Body Modification and Play is finally done and edited. Almost 450 pages in all. Well over a thousand pictures. 110 separate interviews and over a thousand pictures. A third of a million words of text. Large format 8.5″x11″. This project is a monster, and to be honest, it’s a sliver of what I wanted to do, but it had to be cut somewhere. At this point I’m just waiting to make final arrangements with the printers and the book will be up for sale. eBook will be out soon as well — I’m not sure what the distribution path for that will be yet so please don’t ask me quite yet. I’ll update everyone with all the details as soon as I know, but here’s the front and back cover, the table of contents page, and a massive thumbnail collage of the entire book. I’m sure I’ll keep making tweaks until the moment it’s submitted, but it’s a wrap at this point.

    Indeed! Will we get a hardcover version? I think the book really deserves it (I found the quality of the lula softcover version of the previous interview book pretty poor).

    In any case, congrats for putting all this together!

    Is there any other women in this book apart from CM Hurt? It seems very male oriented.

    Should be both hard/soft cover

    And yes, the book is essentially male-only I’m afraid… But as you know that’s the overall reality of the particular segment of the modification world (“auto-sexual-modification”).

    I find this book fascinating. Am enjoying it completely. Hoping hubby will do a small sub on his head. He had a PA which got stretched when the dog jumped on his lap so there is only a small piece of skin that needs to be cut. We shall see!

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
