Wheaton Book Debuts

Fans of Wil Wheaton will be pleased to hear that he is releasing a new collection of short fiction stories, titled The Day After and Other Stories.

The fifty-page book of short stories will be available in both paperback (for a limited time only) and as a PDF version.

Wheaton posted about the book, calling it “one of the scariest things I’ve ever done.” He sold a few short stories as a chapbook last year, and explained that while he’s OK with writing non-fiction, fiction is a different story. “I am paralyzed with terror whenever I think about releasing something I invented out of nothing more than an idea to the public,” Wheaton explained, “and before I actually release it, I hear Carrie’s mother screaming at me, ‘THEY’RE ALL GOING TO LAUGH AT YOU!’”

But several things convinced Wheaton to summon up the courage to release his short fiction. “First, ‘Project Do Something Creative Every Day’ is making me feel less and less afraid of sucking,” he said. “Like I said recently, the goal isn’t to be perfect; the goal is to be creative. I don’t think The Day After and Other Stories is perfect, but it is creative, and the few people I have shown it to told me they liked it.

“Second, over four hundred people expressed an interest in buying an autographed copy of The Happiest Days of Our Lives over the last couple of days. That really blew me away, and made me think, ‘Well, maybe there aren’t as many people out there waiting for an excuse to laugh at you as you think. Also? It’s adorable that you think you’re that important to anyone, jackass.’”

The paperback, which can be purchased here, will only be available until December 30, and will sell for $11.00. A PDF-format version will sell for $5.00 and can be purchased and downloaded by heading to the link located here. A short preview of the book can also be seen at the PDF-format link.

Visitor: Un Petit Morceau

Nana Visitor, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine‘s Kira Nerys, has teamed up with Kim Montalvo to create a new gourmet baking business, Un Petit Morceau.

After Visitor’s work in ABC’s Wildfire series ended in 2008, the two friends, who met in Corrales, New Mexico, decided to start a business. “We wanted something that was no pressure and sheer delight,” said Visitor. Un Petit Morceau , which means “a small morsel” in French, was born.

The pair creates “distinctively unique, artisanal, custom, hand-made desserts to compliment any special occasion,” including bouboulettes, which are “small pastry-like cookies filled with a variety of flavors from around the world.”

There are two bouboulette collections. The original collection includes four different pastries including chocolate cherry chipotle, ginger rosemary, lavender plum and lemon basil. A holiday collection includes a dark English fruitcake bouboulette, amaretto-cherry, pecan pie and apple pie.

Visitor creates the unique treats, using local ingredients as much as possible, while Montalvo takes care of the business and marketing of the gourmet desserts. In addition to the website, located here, there is also a blog, located here.

In addition to selling the treats online and locally, Un Petit Morceau does local catering for special occasions.

Thanks to Michelle for the tip!
