So up next to the comic page you can see there’s a blue vote button for TopWebComics, which is a website that lists and ranks webcomics by vote. It’s a pretty cool idea, and actually brings in a few visitors to the comic now and again even though my rank isn’t so high. One of the people operating TWC sent out an email recently sharing the story of an independent writer who recently had a book published after being available for free online for several years, and asked to spread the word. I’m pasting some information and a link here to help pass this along even though I haven’t read the story or listened to the audiobook (yet) because I’m a huge fan of the way the internet helps people to make their creative work available to the masses. I did a lot of research on things like this (and wrote about it a lot, ugh) in college, so it’s always great to see social media in action. As someone who is doing somewhat the same, I feel it’s only fair to help someone out for all the times my site’s been linked or passed along to friends. The internet is cool like that.
Here’s some information from said e-mail, and some links to go along with it!
“The president of the United States is dead. He was murdered in the morning sunlight by a four-year-old boy…”
Welcome to J.C. Hutchins’ SF thriller 7th Son: Descent, a novel set in present day featuring human cloning, dangerous technologies, and “beyond Top Secret” government conspiracies. I’m letting everyone know about an exciting publication that started as an online podcast, and now is being sold in stores everywhere. And whats more amazing than a fellow internet creator bringing his works from the free digital format to the printed page, is that he’s still publishing everything for free online. If you want to check this out, listen to the book for free, read it for free, or even buy the book, check out his site over here: JCHutchins.net You could even join the ranks of his online army by participating in Warvember just like I am.
