Steve’s Update 1/5/2014

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, 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.
