I’ve been writing espionage articles for Steve, my internet marketing guru and tech-whizz. I know they’re something to do with his marketing efforts, but I’m not sure what just yet. All will become clear in the fullness of time, no doubt. He is a cunning one, that Steve. I’m also hoping to see him again before long; can’t say too much about that.
Just thirteen more days until ‘COAST: An Act Of Burial‘ is released. I hope the retailers get it onto their sites promptly. It would be a bit daft to stir up all this buzz and then have to say “sorry lads, just a few more days”. Things being as they are, I’m sure some will be late and I’ll just have to deal with it. The annoying thing is that the URLs to buy the book won’t become available until then, but as soon as they do you can bet we’ll be throwing them on our Buy The Novel page right here. We’re taking care of compatibility with all the popular e-reader platforms and many that aren’t so popular. Yes, even if you have a five year old Palm Treo like I do, you can read ‘COAST: An Act Of Burial‘ on it.
On that point; if its application version for Windows is anything to go by, I’d get a B&N Nook. It was by far the best looking of all the e-reader apps I tried, but Calibre was definitely the most configurable and I like that too. I suppose sometime I’ll have to take the plunge and actually get myself a physical e-reader or tablet, but I’m not much of a gadget guy (you may have ascertained that from the previous paragraph. Who on earth has a five year old cellphone? Seriously).
A big thank you now to everyone who’s following me on Twitter. You know, you are some seriously brilliant people and I’m very grateful to you for your interest in what I’m doing. Hint; tell all your friends to buy the book! But seriously, I really am thankful for all the people who are showing interest in COAST.
Something else to look forward to, but a little later than the release of the novel; Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ is opening here on May 4th. Man, am I excited to see that movie!
Roger and out, X.
