It’s a brand new look for the website. Fresh. Clean. Updated. Finally.
Plenty of flux in my life right now. So much so that I wish I had some kind of capacitor to harness the power of it all.
But one thing is new and certain: A podcast I’m hosting with my good friend Kevin Purdy. It’s called In Pod Form, and it deals with matters tech-related, entertainment-related, and so forth. That “so forth” could include any number of topics and tangents.
Note: We are not yet experts in matters broadcasting or podcasting, so if we’re a little rough around the edges, well, that’s part of the appeal, innit? At least we’re hoping.
What’s that link again?
So, my novella, Fifteen Shots, is now available for the Barnes & Noble NOOK. No foolin’. Click here.
(I know I could just write “Nook,” but Barnes & Noble always lists it as “NOOK,” so I usually always go along with that. Just like the exclamation point in “Yahoo!” The actions of a journalist, an editor or someone with random occurrences of extremely mild OCD? Perhaps all three.)
If you’re wondering why I didn’t make the e-book available on the other major book reader earlier, well, once I fought through the tedious process of formatting the book for the Kindle, I didn’t feel like doing that sort of thing all over again. Little did I know about Calibre, which made the conversion process easy. I mean, embarrassingly easy. Like, “I can’t believe how easy that was, why didn’t you do that earlier, you ignorant, lazy fool?” sort of easy.
So, I guess it boils down to laziness. Sorry. Lesson learned. But the book is there now! And still just $2.99!
Again. Whaddya gonna do?
I thought my first post on this blog was Oct. 7 of last year. Turns out it was Oct. 3. Ah, well. What are ya gonna do? I’m still here, right?
In the past year, I published 59 posts. This is the 60th. On average, I’m posting about once a week, though I certainly haven’t kept up that pace recently. It doesn’t feel like it, at least.
But here we are. Most of the posts I’ve started, you can find here. Others weren’t so lucky — or they haven’t been lucky yet. That’s about as good as I could expect, really. This blog is what it was meant to be: A place to let loose and take a break from the rest of my writings — my journalism and my other super-secret writing projects. A place where ideas can hang out … and do whatever!
I guess I should make a promise to post more often, but that’s not going to happen. Nor should it. If you like what you’ve read on this blog — any of it — that’s good. Thanks. New stuff will pop up, sooner or later.
Oh, also, while I’m making completely unnecessary announcements and congratulating myself on the amazing achievement of not giving up on a sporadically-updated blog after one year … I quit Twitter. Wasn’t doing it for me. Sorry. Just not my thing.
I also don’t see myself writing for Behind The Steel Curtain, either, at least not in the near future. No hard feelings there or anything; that’s just the way it goes.
