Well, it appears that after all these months of trying to figure out what to do with this blog, I have decided: I’m sticking around.
I’m going to have my author blog for my writing. I will doubtlessly mention my writing here (probably cross-post as well), and I will continue to blog here about Israel, Jewish issues, my cats, and anything else I feel like writing about.
The more I think about it, the less I can shut down what I’ve been doing these past eleven years. I am what I am, and my Google cache is what it is.
I would very much like my long-time readers (and middle-time and short-time readers!) to help me out by passing along the links to my book. Remember I’ve had no advertising and stopped accepting contributions years ago, so all of this is on my own dime. And I was downsized to part-time in August, so the finances are getting a bit tight. The income from my book can make a difference, once the word gets out there.
If you liked Harry Potter, or have friends or relatives that did, you will probably like Darkness Rising: Book One of The Catmage Chronicles. (And trust me, you’re going to get no sicker of reading that than I am of typing it. Good thing I type 100 wpm or more.) Also, the sooner it starts getting a steady stream of sales, the sooner I stop posting that link and just leave it on the sidebar and in the page where it belongs.
Also, I may be posting this cover image from time to time. Because Julie Dillon is an amazing artist, and she’s up for a World Fantasy Award next month. Also because, well, it’s my book cover. And how cool is that?
As of this post, I have achieved chai (18) in book sales. Woo! I’m rich! I’m a happy miser!
And I’m here to stay. And post more often than once a day or so. And on more topics.
There. Now everyone should be happy.
