A Return to Normalcy(?)
I've finally finished a passable trailer for Hell & Gone. I also imbedded a Youtube widget here on the blog, but had to put it way down at the bottom because it wants to hog half the screen. I don't know why, but Blogger isn't letting me tweak the template/layout, either.
In other news, Virtual Pulp received a 5-star rating on Red Adept Reviews. Now that's something I never thought would happen; but it did and it boosted the Amazon rankings for a minute. Actually, for a couple of days. I'm happy to see that the trailer is making an impact on Hell & Gone sales too, though I had hoped more friends would watch it and give me a better launch out of the gates. (Probably less than 2% of my friends--both from Facebook and real life, have bothered to click on the Youtube link.)
What all this means for you, dear readers, is that my horrendous schedule will downgrade to merely brutal. I should be able to start working on the reviews I've had in the queue soon. So more two-fisted blogging should be coming your way this week.
P.S: Oh yeah--forgot to mention above that I'll be switching publishers for the paperback version. Will be cleaning up some technical mistakes in the text, and changing the color scheme on the cover to match that of the e-book.
Regarding those mistakes in the text: The most embarrassing one has been brought to my attention by Reflexive Fire and corrected in the e-book version already. I really appreciate that. Most readers would never be the wiser but I still will feel much better once it's been purged from the print version.
