Been playing around with the website.
And in answer to the question that is immediately raised by that statement, no, the Crossroads section still isn’t updated – still going to do that eventually, but other things keep coming up that demand my attention more than creating a full links page.
Instead of pulling together links, I’ve been adding Free Fiction to the website.
Yes, you read that right. Free. It’s mostly Micro Fiction right now because that’s what I’m having a hard time placing and it just takes too much of an investment of time for negligible returns to keep focusing on shopping those pieces around right now.
Hey, it benefits you …
You can find the new stuff under the Free Fiction tab in the navbar.
And on a completely different note. Except not, because it involves fiction as well (talking fiction on an author’s website? What were the odds?), it turns out that Barnes & Noble e-book customers are excessively fond of my writing. I really don’t have any other way to explain the 500 copy jump in sales at B&N alone in the last couple of months.
I’m not complaining, mind. The An End to Dreaming experiment has been a blast since word of mouth starting picking up. Actually, that 500 copy boost brings the rough sales count at the sites that I know about up over 2,000 sales. And most of the free titles at the markets offering copies of An End to Dreaming for sale haven’t updated their sales information past August 1st yet.
It doesn’t hurt that the novella was apparently mentioned on SF Signal’s Free Fiction roundup for August 27, 2011. Hell, if that isn’t awesome I don’t know what is.
All right. With exhaustion setting in that’ll have to be enough ramble for now, but while you’re waiting for the next update why not have a look at the Free Fiction now on offer on the website? Hey, you can even comment if you’re so inclined …
Till next time keep watching the skies. Or, you know, whatever floats your boat …
