Business Musings: International Growth (Jumping The Digital Divide Part 4)

Trying to wrap my brain around the possibilities for growth in the digital sphere hurts. Seriously. Because the markets are so big and the opportunities so vast that I’m not capable of grasping it all. For a long time, the digital divide wasn’t just generational. It was also location-based. When the Kindle came into being and reader after reader discovered ebooks, the early focus was […]

An Amazing Achievement

Our small publishing company pulled off the impossible so far in 2021. Through July, they have published 91 books. (With 50 or so scheduled for the second half of the year.) This is a wonderful achievement. All of the books are well designed and properly promoted. Allyson Longueira and her small team accomplished that on the one-day-at-a-time model. I’m so impressed with them. And that […]

Wow, we did not expect to be stuck in place kinda sorta a year into this pandemic. Well, I hoped we’d be out of it by now, but my knowledge of history told me that an uncontrolled pandemic takes about three years to work its way through the population. We’re not on that trajectory thanks to Science!!! Yay, science!!!! So we’re all waiting for our […]

Thieves Preorder and Diving short story

But you can preorder your copy now in ebook, trade paper or hardcover format. It’ll take a while for audio. I’m negotiating with someone other than Audible for a variety […]

Business Musings: On Fire

The sunsets and sunrises have been spectacularly beautiful here in Las Vegas for the past three weeks or so—when we’ve had sunsets and sunrises. The smoke from the California wildfires has been incredibly thick, putting a haze on everything. But it gives us blood-red sunrises and sunsets, and occasionally some lovely clouds that will reflect pink and purple. Our air quality has ranged from annoying […]

Business Musings: The Kickstarted Game Changer (Part One)

First, a bit of history. In April of 2009, Perry Chen, Yancey Strickler, and Charles Adler started Kickstarter, a crowd-funding platform aimed at helping creatives of all types fund projects that—back in the day—couldn’t be funded through the normal arts venue. The concept is a fairly simple one. A person puts a project on Kickstarter for a limited period of time, asks for a certain […]

Diving News! Cat News! Future News! Just…News!

Yes, as you can tell from the title of this, I’m stressed, busy, and a bit punch-drunk, without having any punch or alcohol. I’m running around like a chicken, trying to finish things before the Anthology Workshop starts on Friday. And then, I woke up this morning and realized (thanks to a kind DJ on the radio) that today is February 18. Which is… Release […]
