Someday I’ll post about non-Eden stuff again… promise!
Anyway, it’s been ~2 weeks after my haphazard release of Eden across many different formats. Yeah, I believe you learn by actually jumping-in and doing stuff… And I’ve done a ton of stuff over the past 2-3 weeks.

I’ve made some mistakes, but that’s part of the process. I’ve also scored some key “wins”, the biggest of which is the kick-your-teeth-in awesome iBooks version (which my #2 man made possible).
I had an interview with the Southington Observer on Monday, though I’m not sure when that’ll appear.
This weekend, I’m working with a staff writer from the American Cancer Society – they want to profile me as an inspirational success story. After becoming active in the “Head & Neck” survivor community, one thing has become clear: there aren’t too many people who have survived as long as I have after such a bleak diagnosis. I’ll be sure to link that once it’s active.
Eden is under review on several blogs at the moment – hopefully I hear when the actual review is posted so I can cry, laugh and cry some more. I’ve yet to hear a “stranger’s” opinion… should be interesting.
Guess who’s gonna be on the front page of the CT (Southington-Cheshire-Meriden) Record Journal “Features” section this Sunday?
… if it isn’t me then this would be a pretty shitty announcement.
Of course it’s me! Well, me and my fabulous editor. Our sparkling faces will grace the front page of the “Features” section. The photographer met us at the Miceli Productions studio yesterday and he attempted to get a believable smile outta me. Yeah, like all others before him, he failed. The headshot of me in Eden was actually taken at the Tacoma zoo – I was on top of a camel. I guess camels make me smile…
As far as sales, I’ll probably post more info about that after the launch party. So far, iBooks has been the best… Eden has averaged about 1 sale per day over the past 2 weeks there.
Eden continues to be made available on more storefronts. I’ll try to keep those organized and post links as they are solid. It’s actually on the Nook now, but that whole process is new for B&N. I might need to make an update in the next few days to ensure it’s formatted perfectly, etc.
What’s that I hear? Graphic Novel? Audio Book? Sequel? Fuckin’ believe it… more news to come!
