My second Project Wonderful ad campaign’s underway — using shiny ad banners and buttons featuring Marcy Wei’s not-so-smiling face. I’ll probably work Vivi and Cass into the next round of ads, for variety.
That means more folks looking at the site, more folks poking the About Us page, and more folks hopefully reading the story. If you’re one of those folks — hi! Welcome. May you find enjoyment within these pages ‘o fiction.
For those of you up to date, 006 is continuing along at a nice pace. The second act begins this Monday, detailing the messy aftermath of what hath transpired and setting the stage for the adventure to come. I’ll likely get it up on Sunday, so keep an eye out.
007 will see a return of everybody’s favorite everyman, Dave Smith. And 008… well, a lot of stuff’s gonna happen then. Lots. And a lot of stuff’s gonna end. And then we’re on to volume two.
That also means within a month or two we’ll be getting the first City of Angles retail book launched. I’m debating whether or not I’ll be doing a Kickstarter for the artwork; there’s not a lot of tangible rewards possible — the cost of shipping an actual copy of book would exceed any reasonable donation amount. I’m not sure I want to devote tons of time to community management. I also have NO idea how to make a promotional video for a book cover when there’s little to display and I’m not keen on getting in front of a camera. But, it also could be good publicity, so… dunno. Ideas? Think it’s worthwhile? How would you want to see it run?
(Before you ask, yes, the anachronauts Stars Fall book will be launched soon too. And if you want a free copy of the bonus story to tide you over meanwhile, I’m still offering it.)
Big things on the horizon. Get ready, yo. And if you’re just getting on board, good timing.
