I let Gerard’s newer site lapse a few months ago. He had only spoken about continuing this site. Plus, when I tried to communicate with the hosts of the newer site, I never got an answer. So the newer site hasn’t been operating for quite a while, and I have no access to it.
However, every now and then I get an email from someone saying he or she is still being charged by that site. That shouldn’t be happening, of course, but I have no way to look up why it’s happening, or to get an answer from the website hosts about what’s going on.
So I’ve been suggesting to people still being charged to just notify your credit card company, or bank, or Paypal, or whoever is involved with your payments, to stop payment for that newer site because you’re being charged in error. I’m so sorry if you’ve been having the problem. Fortunately, people who have followed that course of action report that it’s worked for them.
I’ve done some actual work on Gerard’s book, using a self-publishing platform. However, there’s still a steep and rather tedious learning curve there, and so I’m nowhere near finished although I have about a third of the content up. Even once all the content is there, I’ll need to do a lot of formatting and fine-tuning.
The current plan is to offer an e-book version and a hard copy print-on-demand version. The latter will, of course, be somewhat more expensive than the former. The book will probably contain between twenty and thirty of Gerard’s long-form mostly non-political essays, with pictures.
I can’t say when it will be ready, but at least I’m out of the starting gate. After the book is done, I plan to put out a second book, this time of Gerard’s poetry.
