1. I updated the word count for The Rising. It’s setting at 32,329 at this moment in time. I should be able to add to that this weekend.
2. In playing around with Plume Creator yesterday, I noticed that I can put more than one book in the same Plume file. Using this knowledge for good and not evil, I created Plume projects for the Starstrikers Era trilogy and the Starveyors Era trilogy. Whether or not I put both of those novels in the projects is a matter of how bored I become, but the fact that I can now share character listings across three books is fantastic.
3. All three of the published Star Saga novels have been updated on Kindle, Nook and Kobo this weekend. In doing this update, I noticed that Kindle is now spell checking your book after you upload it. This is pretty cool. It saved me from about five fat fingered errors between three books. I shall update to Kindle first, from now on just to take advantage of this last minute error checking.
4. Ubuntu related. I have found that if I turn off multiple desktops, using my laptop with an external monitor is much easier and far less confusing.
5. The weather here in Boise, Idaho was just fantastic yesterday. I walked the dog around the neighborhood and even had a bike ride with my kids. Today the temps are lower and there are more clouds. I love Springtime in Idaho.
