Moving forward in 2016

Happy New Year everybody I do hope you enjoyed yourselves, were safe and had oodles of fun.

We are entering 2016 and all of us, I’m sure, are wondering what the coming year will be like.  Hopefully it’ll be a good one for all of us.

There are a few changes happening around here, most of them minor and probably temporary.

First up due to popular demand we’ll be recording an audio version of my pulp novel The Geek and that will be out most likely the second week in February.

I was quite surprised at the amount of requests I’ve been getting for an audio version of the book so we’re going to make that happen.

I’m also going to be concentrating on my first up coming kindle serial that I plan on launching in March.  Originally I was going to launch two simultaneously but that ended up not being a great idea for both time management and quality so will be launching one and then see how that goes.

I will continue to post over on Reluctant Joy, but around March I’ll be folding those posts into here.  I am still making my way through the forest of social media and in the end I think it will be both a better use of my time and a way to make this website more of a true hub of what’s going on with me.

For these and many other reasons, Stuff & Stuff, my weekly podcast will now be every other week, simply because I have to concentrate on the writing and book promotion.  I also don’t want the quality of the podcast to go down due to my schedule.

Anyone who has listened to the podcast knows that quality ain’t that high to begin with so we really can’t afford to let it slip any further into crapness.

But, much like Springfield’s beloved Bi-mon-sci-fi-con it will be continuing and the guests will be sporadic and a total disappointment.  So really a lot like last year.

Quality you can trust…but you shouldn’t

Over on Reluctant Joy this week I’m trying to ban children at Christmas and put a stop to glitter madness, so you know, working for a better tomorrow today http://bit.ly/rljywp

My book is continuing to trend nicely on goodreads and is getting mostly positive reviews which is nice. http://bit.ly/1XpMF4k

Stop on by and hangout or ask a question, I’m always happy to answer.

The Geek is available on pretty much every site that sells ebooks but you can also grab it in paperback on Amazon.com. http://amzn.to/1MwzPG6

Unfortunately it’s only available as a paperback in the states.  However we’ve been getting some demand from Canada and the UK from people who would prefer paperback to ebook. I’m working with the publisher to solve that issue and give readers what they want.  It will most likely be a print on demand thing, which will mean the paperback will be slightly more than the 14.95 price tag in the states, but we’re going to work really hard on keeping it under 20 bucks, aiming for around 17-18.

I’ll let everyone know the outcome of this endeavor.

And hey since we’re here why not follow me on twitter, I always follow back unless your a bot or spammer http://bit.ly/1YIWqZA

And there’s some facebooking going on at facebook http://bit.ly/fnbrjwp

Well once again happy 2016 everybody.  I hope you all have a great week and I’ll talk to you soon.

Sincerely,

Jonathan
