Elephant first. Sorry for what turned out to be blatant lies in that last post. I’ll go into more detail about that in a later post (for real this time).
Just a very quick state-of-the-book update (again, I promise more details shortly):
- Episode 5 is complete, and sitting with my editor (read: friend who volunteers to read all my garbage to see if they make any sense). They’re doing it for free, so I’m not rushing them.
- I’ve cleaned up Episodes 1 through 4, and will be re-uploading them soon.
- I’ve just changed webhosts, so if anyone notices anything blatantly wrong with the site, please let me know.
- There is actually a lot wrong with the site that I’m slowly discovering. My mailing list seems to have gone bye-bye, and I’ll have to get that fixed. For now, the mailing list subscribe feature does not work.
- The whole “two different mailing lists” – i.e. one for me spamming you to buy my books, and the second one for alerting you to new posts on this site – seems to be confusing at best, now that I think about it. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, point proven.
- The website looks horrible. I’m going to overhaul it a bit and make it a little less “Geocities-like”.
- The download section of the site seems to be acting up… sometimes.
- I’ve been contemplating combining Episodes 1 and 2 into a single book. I’ve always considered them a sort of “two-hour pilot episode” anyway. Reason being is that I’m tired of having to tell Amazon to please mark them as free every other week. This way I can just set the combined book to $0.99 and leave it at that. (You can still request a free copy of any of my books if needed (including Episode 5 when it’s released). That has not changed.) More on this when I figure out what I’m doing. Feel free to offer suggestions.
- I was briefly considering going Kindle-exclusive, but decided against it. I’m not going to isolate/tick off a bunch of you guys and gals just for that sweet Amazon moolah, no matter how much I’d like that extra fiver each month.
- I’ll be uploading more weird stuff reviews and miscellaneous crap more often as well.
- As a bit of an apology, I will be posting download links on this site for Episode 5 as soon as my editor gives me the all-clear. For free. If you enjoy it, and (more importantly) can afford it, please also buy a copy from your favourite (or most hated) e-book retailer, and leave a review.
- I just wanted twelve items on this list.
I’ll go into a little more detail in a future post about the ridiculously extended hiatus, but that’s a story for another day.
