The site has gone mobile
Another mid-week update and the biggest news is that the site is now mobile friendly. I had thought this would require a lot of effort and probably a retheming of the site, but I did a little backend work on Monday and voila, the mobile site was born. Apparently Google is going to penalize you in the future if your site doesn’t play nice with the wee little phones all the hip kids seem to be using these days, so I thought I’d better hunker down and protect my 20 millionth on alexa.com.
So, besides that public service announcement, I have a few other, more writing based updates for you. I have a couple more beta readers for Ascent of the Nebula on board hopefully. I never know until I actually get the feedback with new beta readers if they are going to stick it out until the end. I’ve probably had more not follow through with a promise to give feedback than have so we’ll see.
The second draft of my fantasy novel The Last Motley (that image for the mobile version features artwork inspired by that book) is close to half way done and I am still finding this one a breeze and a joy to edit. I’m making so few changes that the manuscript practically edits itself. Oh, the joys of writing with an outline! Not that I didn’t use one for the Chronotrace Sequence books, but it was just not as well developed as the one for The Motley. Plus I didn’t have to invent so many technologies, that probably helps.
Finally, I created a page for Into the Vast over at booklaunch.io. Never heard of booklaunch? I hadn’t either. But if you’re an author who wants to create a slick page for your book you might give them a try. It was dead easy to do and probably took only ten minutes. Not sure what I’m going to do with it, but you can never have too many web pages I always say!
