I’m reading and writing so much I feel like I might explode! OK, so I’ve been tinkering around with a few ideas for my book, and then I happen upon Lulu.com, a website which takes your finished book in digital form, prints it, and sells it, at no cost to you. The catch? It gets 20% of the profit in addition to manufacturing costs on each book sold, (which I hear is pretty good.) It also can sell you book through Amazon.com, and you can choose between assorted sizes of hard back, paper back, brochure, calendar, and even CD/DVD. Cool, huh? I’ve currently planned out what will happen until the start of chapter three. I’m also really interested in writing Heaven’s Hope for the first time in a year, so that can only mean good things. And I’m reading Briar Rose, (planning to read the other two concurrently during August.)
So, I guess I am pretty busy, just not in a noticeable way. And I don’t wanna be noticed, it’ll give me more time to work. Anyways, I’m on schedule for iI, and I’ve already tweaked some things from the preview you saw earlier. New font for the logo, some basic lighting, thickening the lines, etc. Nothing big enough for you to go, “Wow! Never saw that coming!” Although, I do have some small surprises in store for this release. You’ll just have to wait until August.
Today was my grandparent’s, (Rabon), 50th wedding anniversary. I got some neat-o pictures and videos of the bash, because my mother and the others went all out for this one. Almost everyone was there. We ate swordfish and cake, played badminton and volleyball, and then all the cousins, (including my cousin’s daughter Emelyn), got together for a few thousand pictures.
I’ve been daydreaming about what it’ll feel like to open the Wii box and pull out everything from the unit, to the controller, to whatever else Nintendo crammed in the box. Personally, I foresee Wii Sports as the first launch pack-in game for a system in a long while. Why? It’s too basic to sell on its own, I mean the production values must be nearly nothing, and Nintendo does want this game to demonstrate what it can do and also get nongamers hooked on the system, so I think this is the most logical choice. I told you all first!
I updated this site some; instead of clicking on the “# comments” link next to the blog title, you can now also click “Leave a comment” next to the date stamp and my name. I also updated “About The Bells” to the right, adding some autobiographical stuff and letting you know it’s easier to leave a reply. I want a reply! Please? Let me atleast know you’re reading.
Well, until I get something concrete worked out, you’ll have to wait for the chance to read the best book ever written.
