Update 5: What Participation Will Really Be Like

Yes, we wish it was June 1, too, but we’re also glad for the extra weeks and the chance to make this adventure bigger and better than we ever imagined. In our last update we promised that once funding hits $50,000, we’re going to create a comprehensive set of...

UPDATE 4: YOU WERE RIGHT AND SO WAS DAVE

Thanks for being patient. And by being patient I mean thanks for tolerating what was apparently a rather silly first stretch goal. Dave told us the transcripts were stupid. “No one will care!” he said. We agreed, then ignored him. I argued that since transcripts were...

Designed to Convert

Designed to Convert

My primary goals this week were all marketing/product based. Fun stuff, that I actually enjoy doing (the design work, not the admin part) and wish I had more time for. Most importantly, we had to get basic bundles (for CI and R&S) to market, primarily for Fiction...
A Big Leap Forward

A Big Leap Forward

I’ve been in WordPress purgatory again. Trying to make sure everything is in shape for the increased exposure that Fiction Unboxed will undoubtedly bring. Right now the sites all feel a bit naked. I know that’s silly, I see everything with a magnifying...
