Communion Of Dreams

A couple of quick items . . .

We’re now over 11,400 downloads of Communion of Dreams – that’s about 400 in the last month.

Sometime overnight we passed 25,000 hits to this blog.  I mentioned a few months back that Welcome to the Hobbit House was far and away the most popular post I’ve written.  It still is, by a factor of 10x.  It seems to pop up fairly high when people search for “hobbit”, “hobbit house” and variations thereof.  Not my most thought-provoking or literary post, but there you go.

Oh, yeah, this is post 461.  Given my usual rate of posting, I should cross 500 sometime in October.  I’ll try to make note of it.  Since my posts tend to average 400 – 500 words, that means we’re somewhere in the neighborhood of 200,000 words, or half again the number of words in Communion.  But while I do try and put a little thought into most of the things I post here, that is nothing like the amount of work required to write a book-length work of fiction.

So, thanks to one and all who stop by here (particularly those who comment), and who have downloaded Communion and told friends/forums about the book.  Sometime in the next few weeks I’ll have a small bit of news about the novel (no, I have not been contacted by a publisher or anything).

Maybe more later today.
