New Website Nearing Completion

I worked on the new website, mostly built it with a few minor things.  

It now has a copyright page.  The only reason there is a copyright page on the website is because the website will be a serial novel.  I am somewhat treating the website as a book.  At the end, I will make a print version on Amazon or through a book distributer.  The online version is free.

The website has the poetry and short fictions sections.  I still need to insert the links to the perspective books on Amazon.

And then the serial will be blog posts and I have renamed home to ‘The Radio.’

My photographer friend took pictures of me today, kind of spur of the moment.  I have the new photo on my about page.

I just bought the domain: thoughtsfromtheaether.com.  Currently it’s thoughtsfromtheradio.blogspot.com.  It usually takes 24-48 hours for the new domain name to be associated with the blogspot website.

Because the posts will be the story, I have no problem sharing them on social media.  Social media may or may not pick up traffic for the website, but that remains to be seen.

Then blogger also makes it easy for people to sign up for a mailing list.  This website has hardly any traffic so I don’t have subscribers.  If the serial novel idea works, maybe there will be a mailing list.  Or that can be something I can work on next year.

For the future of this website.  Still remains to be seen.  I think that blog posts on this website will be limited to 250 words and depending on how busy I will be with projects, 100 words.  All of my platforms will have the new website link once it is available.  I will have to go back to all my books on Amazon and change the website on the books.

I am excited for the new website.  I am excited for the projects I am working on.  2021 will be a busy year.

Song mood: Mysterious Ways by U2. Currently I’m listening to The Ruin by Dervla McTiernan.  I’ve listened to a couple of novellas that she wrote where her detective Cormac Reilly briefly shows up in and liked them.  This is the first book with her star detective.  Between McTiernan and Trevor on who writes better suspense, I would say hands down McTiernan.   A person who writes mysteries as a genre follow a set of conventions so that the reader isn’t in a state of confusion.  One great example is putting dates before each section or series of sections.  Literary writers don’t follow conventions and the confusion at times come from the writing.  Where I say, let the characters mislead the reader not the writing itself. I am enjoying The Ruin .  It’s nice to get back to a solid mystery. I continue to walk at the lake.  Although, it’s a modified path where I get around 2.5 miles instead 4 miles.  I still need to figure out what to do for exercise in the winter.  I want to get a rowing m

Anticipated Books of 2021

For me, the two most anticipated books are both by Silvia Moreno-Garcia.  The first one is Certain Dark Things to be released 7 September and the second is Velvet is the Night to be released 17 August.  Both are after my birthday so they can’t be my birthday book.  Which is too bad.  Garcia proved she could very write well with Mexican Gothic .  I’m inclined to believe she is the best writer out there. Currently I’m listening to Untamed Shores , Garcia’s thriller that was released last year.  It is similar to Mexican Gothic except without the elements of horror. Speaking of the birthday book, I finally chose the one.  And this time there will be no hiccups.  This year’s birthday book will be: The Album of Dr. Moreau by Daryl Gregory.  The book is set to be released on 18 May.  Three months before my birthday and if the book is to be pushed out, I think it would about a month or so.  It’s a murder mystery that involves a boy band formed by the animal people from The Island of Doctor
