Part six of the Veil War went live today and is now terrorizing its neighborhood, Frankenstein-style. Take a gander over here. One nice thing about this whole novel writing project is that
I now have a good excuse to both post on perfidy, and not post on perfidy. Best of both worlds, baby!
And a gentle nudge: for all my readers who have blogs – and I know that a few of you do: the time has come for all of you to link to the Veil War. (cough… Naked Villainy, Murdoc, Rocket Jones, AW1 Tim, Aretae… cough) Just saying. I will ruthlessly mention you on perfidy until you comply.
I’ve been surprised by the amount of traffic that veilwar.com has been getting from perfidy. It’s been a steady flow of refers – not so great a flood as Blackfive’s generous linkage generated a couple weeks ago – but significant. I haven’t had any sort of stats functionality here on perfidy.org for a good long while now, because a) I don’t care that much and b) if I knew, I might be depressed. But I’m thinking that the residual traffic left over from our glory days must be greater than I imagined/feared.
If you will forgive a little bit of me-time, I am very pleased with how things are going. Blackfive sent about 300 readers my way, right before the third installment went up. As of part five, the last installment for which we have full statistics, there were over a hundred reades. I think that’s a pretty good stick rate, and not bad considering its only been a few weeks since the whole thing started. And I see from followers and commenters that I am just edging into second order readers – people who are being referred by the first wave. So that’s cool. And once I get the ebook ready for sale on Amazon, there will be several new avenues for promotion.
Thanks to everyone who has read, and linked, liked, friended, followed and shared the Veil War. It really is appreciated.
