Chasing Two Rabbits

Success as a writer on the left, digital publishing revolution on the right.

Couldn’t even catch these cute, fat little bastards.

They say that if you chase two rabbits, you’ll catch neither, and my recent experience has borne that out. I wanted to not only be successful as a storyteller, but also simultaneously build a revolutionary foundation for the future of publishing… and I’ve so far succeeded in neither. Thus, after much soul-searching and careful consideration, I’ve decided to (at least temporarily) put Oktopod Digital Press to rest in order to focus on building my personal platform as a writer.

I have some exciting news and a fresh project that’s nearly ready to show, but Oktopod won’t be part of the equation going forward. I’m consolidating my efforts into social media, and you’ll be able to follow my further adventures on Facebook and Twitter, where I’ll be sharing updates, insights, and my usual sarcastic self.

And/or here for Twitter.

I want to personally thank you all for following this clumsy and stumbling enterprise. There have been ups and downs, and looooong stretches of nothing-much-at-all in between, but I just want you to know that I appreciate every second you’ve spent reading my rambling diatribes, and (even more so) traveling through strange realms of the imagination with me. I promise there will be more to come… much, much, more…. just not in this form.

Thank you so much for accompanying me through the past six years of prologue. The real story is just about to begin.

~Chris

Stars Rain Down in the Inkshares / Nerdist Contest!

Hi folks! Just wanted to let you know that Biotech Legacy: Stars Rain Down is competing in the Nerdist Contest at Inkshares. If you’re not familiar with Inkshares, they’re an unusual new publisher that uses a Kickstarter-like crowdfunding model, and they’re currently running a contest in association with Chris Hardwick’s Nerdist media group that will see one lucky book chosen to be a Nerdist product.

I want that book to be Stars Rain Down!

I need your help to make that happen, so please head on over to the contest page and pre-order a few copies! They’re only $10 a piece, and you’re only charged if I win.

As a special bonus, I’ll be writing short stories throughout the contest based on ideas pitched by YOU!

What are you waiting for? Hustle along now… Go, go, go!

Biotech Legacy is a deep, emotional, and action-packed series about humanity’s secret history and destiny in the universe.
