Oh no, you don't !

It almost happened again, my blog nearly started to gather dust again. But not this time...

I've planned Chapter 9, 10 and even 11 of Battlestar Xanthi: A Collection of Memories. There's a major twist in there, but where ?....well, you'll just have to read them. Chapter 9 has reached the writing stage, so it's coming ASAP. Speaking of which, time to get back to it....

Promotion

Okay, started promotion for Hollywood. I've never done anything like this before, so I started by using my mail and sending a message out to people. Also, I've after several very busy days, I've finally done some major catching up for Star Trek: Frontier Fleet. This means that I now have my hands free to start working on Battlestar Xanthi: A Collection Of Memories again.

Hollywood can now be ordered

Ladies and gentlemen,

My first novel - Hollywood - can now be ordered. If you life in the Netherlands, then delivery time should be one or two workdays. Added to that, I added to the link to the list at the side. (Because if everything goes according to plan and I can keep the fresh content coming, the post containing the link will sooner or later fall off the page.)

Finally, I did some prep work on my Xanthi story update. So as soon as I have some free time, I can get started on getting that going. For now, that all she wrote.

Good News and Bad News

The Good News...

My first novel Hollywood is finally up on Bol.com. (Yeah !) It can also be found on Ako.nl. Or by Googling 'Edmond Dantes Hollywood'. There should be several good hits right at the top. (I've tested it, so I know it at least works for me.) Here is the link for Bol.com:

https://www.bol.com/nl/p/hollywood/9200000056953708/

The Bad News....

Alas, all the sites the Bol.com arrangement places your book on, are in Dutch. Further more, all the sites currently list the book as 'Not available.' I'm hoping that as soon as people place orders, this will changed. (The arrangement is print-on-demand. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that once there is a demand, they'll print.)

Tech note

Since I was dusting it off I thought 'why not' and changed the Template. The old look had been around for a couple of years and was getting just that...old ! So I changed it. I've also made a minor change to the 'about me' page, because of the changed title of Hollywood.

In the waiting room ?

Oh boy....it happened again. I let a nice, thick layer of dust accumulate on my blog. Well, time to break out the vacuum-cleaner, because it's that time again. Let's dust this puppy off.

"August in Hollywood" has been renamed "Hollywood" Furthermore, I've taken the leap and put it on Bol.com. Alas, the sub-site for my book doesn't work....Yet ? I'm hoping it's simply bureaucracy doing it's thing. (aka being slow.) So right now it's just a matter of patience. (I'll try again tomorrow.)

On the bright side, I have successfully order a test copy. So *crossed fingers*.  And I am working on a sequel. So if this does work out, expect at least one more book to hit the web ASAP. But for now, it's just wait and see....
