I’ve been “off the grid” for a week or two working on a couple of projects/features, so I thought I’d better post something. I tend to focus intensely on one project at a time, so if the posts become infrequent, it usually means I’m working on something BIG.
The first project that took up most of last week was adding the new “Book Tweets” feature to BookBlitzer.com, which gives authors the ability to schedule re-occurring tweets about their books to both Twitter and Facebook. Other sites have this, but you typically have to pay a small fee for it. That, and their scheduling isn’t usually that great. The book-tweets feature is currently being tested, along with the Contests feature.
The other “project” was continuing to research stone-casting and the pyramids (with special attention on construction of the Great Pyramid) for a book I’m starting: “The Castors of Giza”. The main source for this research has been The Pyramids: An Enigma Solved by Joseph Davidovits, along with several other books that detail Old Kingdom customs, practices, and their religion.
