Monday in Review

Nothing much to report, slow start to the week and work continues in a steady fashion after last week’s moments of running around.

I was vaguely amused while checking in on Eejit on Amazon (sales are still dragging, I need a new book or more publicity, and reviews are hovering at a lame-arse 22). Overall the scores are good, I’m somewhere around 4 stars.

But then Amazon has this new system, where it logs the reviews according to the genres favoured by the reviewers. And that was a bit weird.



Looks like I’m moderately tanking in terms of what science fiction readers like – so much so that the religion and spirituality readers are giving me better reviews! I mean, I’ve long since made as clear as possible that I don’t care about genre and Phase 2 is going to blow the whole concept of genre out of the water for anyone who’s even remotely interested in my books or my arbitrary Phase system … but it was amusing to see.

I need to go spamming again, my visibility’s in the toilet right now.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy.
