Whew! Busy time over the holidays – and by busy I mean I goofed off a lot, kind of. I also got a lot done at the same time, so it was an odd mix. One thing that did slide is my updates, and here’s what’s up!
- The next book is in the last editing phase. The cover is done. So I’ve got one more edit to do – I print it out in rough and go over it physically – and then I can start formatting it for print. Still looking like March right now. I think you’ll be pleased . . . and wait until you see the cover!
- You’ll see a few more Way With Worlds here – but then they’ll be over at . . . the new Seventh Sanctum Codex! I’ve added codex.seventhsanctum.com, a subdomain that contains a content system so I can post updated, columns, and more, and I’m looking for contributors! I want to add a bit more to the Sanctum to help authors and artists out.
- My Focused Fandom: Cosplay, Costuming, and Career just sold more copies than Fan To Pro, my flagship book. Holiday sales were definitely up, and a lot were physical books. Big lesson is some books make good gift books and I think eBooks have their limits, at least for some titles. Anyone think my smaller job booklets would be good as a physical book?
- Over at the Informotron, I updated my list of Geeky Professional Associations. I plan to work on adding more resources to this and other sites I work on to help people out.
- I have some more work with Seventh Sanctum and MuseHack coming up. Stay tuned . . .
- Starbound, even in crude beta, is very addictive. Just figured you should know that.
