T-Minus… about 7 days (give or take)

I’m putting the finishing touches on the website now. I happened upon an interesting note in Writer’s Digest. Apparently, when you publish something on your blog or website, it counts as a publication. It doesn’t mean that you can brag about being published. It means potential trouble. When a publishing company buys your work, they purchase first rights to publication, which, if you’ve got the piece on your blog, has already had its first publication. So you’ve shot yourself in the foot. So that means no excerpts on the new monkeywright.com. But there will be synopses, and perhaps some character sketches or something interesting. Give me time to think about it. And really, won’t it be more fun to read my excerpts someday on Amazon.com?
I think so too.
