As I mentioned last week, I’m spending a couple of weeks working on some “marketing stuff”. I was vague on specifics, but the specifics are pretty boring. For those who care, last week I took my (very) old action/horror serial that used to be titled “The Young Ones” and started getting it ready for publication under the new title: “Dust To Dust”. I won’t be publishing it though. Instead, I’ll be offering it as a free download for people who join my (currently nonexistent) mailing list. If you don’t remember or never read the story, you can learn all about it when I launch the list later this week. Before THAT happens, I have to create a cover, write descriptions, create a sign-up page, blah, blah, blah.
Like I said… pretty boring.
The mailing list itself, however, will not be. I think I’ve answered my own question of “what the hell do I do with a mailing list!?”
The answer isn’t necessarily new, and it will take time/energy that would otherwise go toward
playing video games finishing my novel… but I can make it work, especially if there’s money involved. Make what work? Well, you’ll just have to see.
Also, you’ve no doubt noticed that I’m working on the website theme yet again. I’m trying to go for something dark yet professional. Not quite there yet… but I think I’m headed in the right direction.
