12/19/14 – Have been hard at work on the trailer for The Thirteenth Hour. Almost done with a draft; just finishing up the 80s style synth soundtrack!
12/20/14 – The book trailer for The Thirteenth Hour is finally done! See it at book trailer or from the About page here.
12/24/14 – The Thirteenth Hour has been submitted to Amazon for publishing! It is now available for pre-purchase and will be officially released January 2015 on … wait for it … the 13th. There is a song quote I added from the 80s synth song, “Forever Young,” though I only have permission to include it in the US. Trying to figure out what to do about that for international editions. That and how to add sample chapters. I guess these are, in retrospect, kind of high quality problems to have 🙂
12/25/14 – Merry Christmas! Finally figured out how to make a RSS feed (I mean, really, I still don’t really understand what this is … but thanks to the power of the internets, even someone who has absolutely no clue can do it, albeit, in my case, with the efficiency of a chimp trying to type out Shakespeare with his feet). Even managed to figure out how to upload the audio files I’d recorded onto itunes thanks to this video. Just waiting for approval from itunes. This is becoming much more legit, much less ghetto, than I ever expected.
1/6/15 – There have been many changes since the new year! There are now companion sites on tumblr and deviantart as well as functioning podcast links for all 15 podcast episodes so you can play them directly off the posts. Finally think I figured out how to do the whole iTunes podcast thing (again) after many failed attempts and am waiting for approval (for the second time). Still trying to work out a copyright issue for outside the U.S.
