The Chosen Nightmare - Waking Up From a Dream

As many of you know, I have been working on my photo art graphic novel "The Chosen Nightmare" for about a year, and recently finished an edit of it.

My intention was to release it in July, but that was pending on a review with featured Model Liz LaPoint (also my wife) about the content and how people would perceive it, and whether or not people would understand the social message amidst the sexuality and dark themes, and we decided together not to do a general release of the book.

I have always said I would not release a version of the book that was creatively compromised, and that is what it has come down to. It is important to us as artists and compassionate human beings that we aren't misunderstood, and there are very real concerns that some people would not understand the context of the imagery nor would they comprehend the overall message.

I am not ashamed of the book, and in fact love it very much. It is dark, erotic, weird and surreal. My models delivered brave performances and I worked tirelessly on it.

That said, it is not completely dead. I am going to privately sell 5 copies of it, and that is it!

The 5 copies will come with props from the shoot and will be autographed and contain a lot of extra stuff that wasn't going to be in the edit I just finished.

It will be 8"x10" and around 300 pages.

If you are interested in obtaining one of the five copies, please message me or email me at terryost@mac.com
