Things were looking good, Guerrilla Mural of a Siren’s Song was up and selling on Amazon, I was busy making noise about it on Facebook and Twitter, when Will Bayer, a friend from my old neighborhood in West Covina, pointed out that the cover was missing one of the Rs in guerrilla. Awk!
I took a few deep breaths, and a line from Alejandro Jodorowsky’s El Topo popped into my head: “Too much perfection is a mistake.” One of the wisest sentences uttered in any movie.
Ever see a happy perfectionist? Didn’t last long, did it?
So I shot an email to my publisher, and she got on it. Thank Quetzalcoatl for computerized publishing! The problem was soon fixed.
In the meantime, I repeated on the social media that the early print-on-demand copies with the goof were destined to become valuable collector’s items.
I even started an Instagram account.
If you ask me, it looks like another case of Tezcatlipoca reminded me not to act like somekinda chingón.
