- I know it’s been awhile. Quite a bit has been going on, so it was pleasant the other night to be able to sit with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s Half Baked, which is probably my favorite flavor of them all (or equal to Cherry Garcia) and just ponder a few things:
- So I broke down and got an iPad Air on November 1st, the release day. Thus far I’m loving it, but that’ll come in a later post (hopefully). What I do want to comment on is what a great service pick-up is from the Apple Store. I literally ordered the iPad Air through the Apple Store app and in less than 120 minutes I had it in my hands from the Fifth Avenue Apple Store… bypassing the line of dozens that had formed outside to get their hands on it. If you want something day of release and already have an iPhone or iPad, pick-up ordering is the way to go
- I’ve had a lot of “down time” so to speak, so I’ve occupied that time by working (or intending to work) on one or more of my many manuscripts. I’ve also been listening to quite a few podcasts, and was very pleased to find a new one called the Rocking Self-Publishing Podcast. I LOVE this podcast! I’ve listened to all the episodes and quite honestly it has absolutely the best content out there for people who are interested in self-publishing. It’s an interview based podcast averaging about an hour, but what really separates this from other podcasts is the host, Simon, is NOT a self-published author. Being detached from the activity lends an authenticity to the content as he is someone who asks the same questions many people not in self-publishing are most likely to ask themselves. The authors that he interviews provide a variety of perspectives, ideas, and techniques that form a solid foundation for anyone looking to get started or improve on their self-publishing efforts
- It’s no secret that I’m a pretty huge Star Wars fan. One of the other things I’ve been doing is playing Tiny Death Star. It’s a game based on one of my other favorite games, Tiny Tower. Check out the trailer:
It’s a great time burner, especially when your in bed. Doing nothing.
Have a great day!
