Giveaway II books are ready to mail!

In Random on March 13, 2011 at 7:34 pm

Spent the evening packaging and addressing the Goodreads Urtaru Book Giveaway II prizes.  11 are going to locations in the US, the rest to Canada, Australia, Great Britain, India and Armenia.

I’m pretty excited.  I had this fantasy/ironical thought last night… What if book would find some following in India and take off like crazy there…that would be funny.   The total available market of English Speaking Sci-Fi fans there would be huge.  Maybe they’d make a Bollywood movie out of it 🙂

Then my mind raced to the fact that a winner of the contest was in Armenia.  Hmmm…

OK back to reality…

Goodreads Winners: I’m going to go the post office this week…It’ll be parcel post, so it will take several days to weeks to get to you.

Writing again…

So, I’ve started writing again.  Fits and starts.  I looked at what I had already written for book 2, and had about 9000 words.  I set a goal for myself to get to 10000 (the minimum before authonomy will let me make my work public) and open the first 9 chapters up to the knives on Authonomy.    You too can read it there.  It doesn’t have the correct italicization (the conversion from pages to word to authonomy seems to be stripping things out) but if you can get around that I hope the writing keeps you entertained.

Have at it.
