Nothing to say.

Published October 26, 2014 by Iphis of Scyros

Hardly surprising.  It’s not like it’s been much of a day.

Although I did have two nasty crying jags–not sure why, precisely–but that’s not really very interesting even to me, much less to any total stranger who might have the misfortune to try to read this.

Although at least there is one bit of good news:  one person has now downloaded my novel!  For free, of course, but…if nothing else, that will at least move my book up in the “bookstore” portion of LeanPub’s web site, which is based on number of copies downloaded, amount of money earned, and some other criterion (or criteria) that I can’t pin down with my limited information.  (But my short story (eventually to become part of a short story collection) “Achilles in Erebos” is ranked much higher than “Ilios” whether I tell the “bookstore” to list them by money earned or by number of copies sold, even though both of them have been downloaded precisely once, both for free.  Maybe it’s because “Achilles in Erebos” was up for a shorter amount of time before its first download?  I dunno…but either way, at least “Ilios” is no longer stuck at the utter bottom of the heap.)  Unfortunately, the download came now, instead of several days from now, when I get the updated version ready.  Fortunately, the system allows the author to e-mail people who’ve bought the book to let them know the updated version is available.  (And given that in some of the chapters I apparently failed to do a search-replace for accented characters (which get loused up in the conversion from Word to Markdown) and therefore some words are now gobbledygook, it seems important to let my one reader know about that.)
