Dani Filth Tour Blog 13/02/14

The co-headline European tour with Behemoth is going great, from a sold-out show at the London Forum to a furious headline gig in Paris, it's been a f**king blast!

Yesterday we had a quite a packed day off metro-ing it around Paris, photos of which I will be posting over the coming day or so as I collate them on my travels. Keep those peepers peeled.

The picture below was taken in the Catacombs far below Paris where 6 million human remains are interred in ornate skull and bone…

You want to get that graphic novel out there -- use Createspace.com.  Lulu.com -- they're fucking assholes who are part of that double standard.  They allow a book about a boy wearing a pink shirt and a doll, but pull an account over an antinovel that a Boy Scout criticized the current leadership of this country in a very dark and brutal way.  They don't like to hear raw truth -- it disturbs them so this tool I am going give you to work with it's a free tool and if you want to work in a size where I can help you walk through the formatting with createspace.com is use a 300 pdi with the images.  This program allowed me to transition from Createspace.com to lulu.com and challenge Lulu.com.
       That tool I gave you is going to help you in a huge way -- and I am working on getting a 28% discount on my namesake title so you guys can get it for what I paid for my lulu.com titles.  I am fighting Lulu.com for my back catalog as an editor and a publisher so I can move it to createspace.com.   I am going to show you my copyright page for Tabloid Purposes IV for the CS version in a private message.It's tone is going to be even more duniciatory than when I did when I was with lulu.com.   If you need any help with wraparound -- ask Robert because helped with Legend Keeper and I figured out the namesake versions and my five year memoir.  It takes a few tries with graphic intensive titles.  Lulu.com well I was able to do high resolution and will be teaming up with LSI directly (Lightning Source with Lake Fossil Press just trying to figure out my costs for the ISBN batches so I can move the magazine to there.)   Lulu.com pulled my storefronts all together over Legend Keeper.  When I get my discount code -- it will be posted on your comment era and pass this on to the filthings.  The reason I want to help you is because you made my personal friend welcome with you guys and he might feel homesick man so get the project for him because I wrote Ghosts In The Tornado from the apartment.
