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.

  So I made some changes in plan for my birthday.   I decided to get a room at Aksarben Suites.   I’ll spend the day in Aksarben and pretend that I traveled.   What I will have, I’ll decide tomorrow, although I suspect that it will be Pickleman’s pizza.   I’ll read and chill.   Maybe I’ll take a bus to the Dundee Dell.   So many things I can do.   For coffee, I’ll go to the Starbucks on 90 th and Pacific.   That one has the Verismo coffee machine makes an excellent cup of coffee.   I can even take an early walk at the lake as I make my way to Aksarben.

  Song mood: In Too Deep by Genesis. It’s been an Inspector Morse weekend.  I’m halfway through the original series.  I think I came upon an understanding.  If the show follows the book closely, it will say based on the book.  After the second season, the shows stopped following the books closely and then it says based off the characters.  Some of them say based off an idea by the author, which would indicate that the author collaborated with the producers for the screenplay. The other thing that I realized is that if they are going to follow the series, Chief Inspector Thursday won’t be in the new show for much longer.  Which this last season hinted at. I expect to work on my own mystery this week.  It happens in Sandy, England.  My Inspector Trevor is surnamed after the Irish author, William Trevor.   Trevor is one of the biggest names in literature.  Or he was when I attended college for Creative Writing.  I’ve read a few of his short stories.  I think I should listen to a fe

Trends on Horror

Here are some trends I picked up on recently. The big push for horror isn’t in October.  It’s June, July and August.  As someone who self publishes books, I’m not at all interested in what’s trending.  Mainly because I just need to write as many and publish as many books as possible.  Following trends gets thrown out the window when you want to publish four to six books a year. I already knew that books and dvds, perhaps most streaming get released on Tuesdays.  At one time I knew why. It was the whole business of everything getting shifted because of the pandemic that I realized that the push for horror was June through August.  Harrow the Ninth was supposed to be released in 25 June and now is 4 August.  The Night of the Mannequins by Stephen Graham Jones was supposed to be released on 14 July and is now 1 September.  That was supposed to be my Birthday book this year. What I found out about Stephen Graham Jones is that a novel of his should have already been released, but i
