Internet wows and woes (or tales of a bogged blogger)

(Sorry, couldn’t resist the title)

I recently discovered that anyone can join Chapters/Indigo’s “online community” (and Amazon’s too, I think) and post blogs, book reviews, top ten books lists, etc. This is both a good and a bad thing.  You can have a lot of fun in the online world — Googling, blogging, Youtubing, etc. etc., but you can also waste a lot of time (and in my case, use up valuable and limited eye stamina). I’ve blogged on my publishers site, blogged on the Chapters.indigo site, watched Youtube vidoes, listened to some new music, looked up books, etc., but what I haven’t done is start writing my next novel!

On the plus side, I now have an actual website, and I have been doing quite a bit of book promotion stuff (here’s a post about an event earlier this week at Hycroft House in Vancouver), and if you want to find out more about manga you can read my version of the “manga basics” in my Chapters/indigo blog post (inspired by Wired magazine‘s latest cover story, “Manga Conquers America”).
