Communion Of Dreams


You know . . .

. . . looking over my New Years post last January is just mostly painful. Because 2011, while it had some good things about it, was mostly just painful. Literally. In many regards, I’d just as soon forget the bulk of it.

But this look-back is something of a tradition, so let’s get it out of the way.

Total downloads of Communion of Dreams dropped off a fair bit in 2011, with just an additional 5,444 versions of the book zipping across the aether. I have long since lost track of the exact number of downloads that makes, but it’s something in excess of 35,000. Yay.

What also dropped off was my focus on the book, as I waited for The Publisher Who Shall Not Be Named to return any of my emails or calls, and turned my attention to other projects. Like getting Her Final Year published. And doing the big BBTI tests and site revamp. And doing a bunch of writing for Guns.com. So it’s not too surprising that interest in CoD waned a bit.

So, not a great year, particularly since most of my other projects didn’t work out like either I hoped or predicted. Still, I stubbornly refuse to learn from my failures, and hope to have a self-published version of Communion of Dreams available “soon.” Maybe even “real soon.” We’ll see.

Meanwhile, let’s all work to make 2012 a better year. Deal?

Sounds like a great deal. 🙂

I’m going to double-down on working to get more attention to HFY, and “Sync” is in the final pre-prep for publication (got the cover design approved – last bits of formatting & final editing/markup now), so don’t worry as much about HFY & get Communion out to the masses. You’d done a lot of additional editing to polish it for The Publisher Who Shall Not Be Named, so it’s likely in top shape for publishing.

I pledge to buy a copy as soon as it’s available. (Maybe two – one print edition, one hard-cover, if you put it out in both formats.)
