Still More Interactive Fiction

Long-time fans may remember Diamond Find, my massive text-based diamond-locating simulator. Even longer-time fans (basically just my family at this point) might remember that I once put out a book called Gray which is, I have to say, my worst, and thankfully out-of-print.

Long story short, I wrote a sequel to Gray using the Diamond Find engine!

I'd originally planned to fix Gray and release them both at once, but in the end it wasn't worth it. Anyway, The Calico Brief is finally ready to play. It's far better than Gray ever was, and you don't need to have read the book to understand what's going on. It's... probably better if you haven't.

A webstore upgrade

This was a long time coming, but I made some upgrades to this very eBook store. Now there are specific pages for each eBook, featuring 3D representations of the books themselves with samples you can flip through! We're living in the future.

Things are also looking slightly better, which I'm hoping will improve sales. SPEAKING OF SALES, there is a discount if you buy Ghostcrime and Snapback Vol. 1 together. Do it. Come on.

You also might notice the new Digital Popularity Indexes above. These give you valuable real-time business insight into my digital publishing operation. Data, it's said, drives success.

New tie-in for Ghostcrime!

These days, you might expect a tech-savvy (or well-funded) novelist to release a tie-in game along with their new book. While I've got a game in the works to go with the re-release of my cat thriller Gray, I'm going a slightly different direction with Ghostcrime.

The first difference you'll notice is that I'm only doing this now, and I released Ghostcrime a good 10 months ago. Listen, I had other stuff going on, okay? I hadn't even built the eBook store yet.

But also, instead of a tie-in game, I've built a tie-in CRM!

This application keeps track of your contacts, your obligations to them, upcoming meetings, and recurring tasks you need to remember. It also keeps track of all the books you're reading right now and ideas you've had, nudging you to complete them when you'd ordinarily go do something else, like watch TV.

Now, unlike the sad protagonist of Ghostcrime, you can sort your life out with technology's help! It's called ghostCRM.

That's the joke.
