Let the binge begin! I’m now the proud own of the the MVP audiobook. I plan rolling around in all of its sweet Siglerishusness. Yes bowser spell checker, I just made that word up. Deal with it!
It is here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
IT’S OUT! IT’S OUT!
JUST TAKE OUR $$$$$$$$ AND GIVE US WHAT YOU HAVE DONE, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OCTOBER ISN’T QUITE OVER YET IS ALL I’M SAYIN’. WELL, I’M SAYIN’ THAT AND MAYBE FRANKENSTORM AND SANDY MIGHTA SLOW THINGS DOWN A DAY. THAT IS ALL I’M SAYIN’.
A, it may help you to know that they recently introduced the ability to have longer, more descriptive file names with most operating systems. That may help you in the future.
Well, I unfortunately did the same think with 40,000 finished words of THE REPORTER. I accidentally deleted it, then safe-emptied the trash. Found out my TimeMachine backups were down. Also found out the main document for the story wasn’t in my fiction folder, which is automatically backed up with DropBox.
I’d finished editing the second draft of Mur Lafferty’s work for it. I lost eight 10-hour days worth of work. I had to go back and do it all over again. Ugh.
hmm, bummer.. well I will dedicate a song to you by Pink Floyd….’Momentary Lapse of Reason”
It was worse than that: it was three months of work I did myself. I’d stared at that damn folder for months, and then, in one tragic afternoon while prepping for the MVP shipping, I effin’ forgot that “AB_MVP” meant “audiobook_MVP” and not “myfirstname_MVP” which is how I had been labeling the prep files for shipping.
… And then I secure deleted them, so I wouldn’t end up printing the wrong labels.
Yeah, I’ll give you a minute to read that again …
Ten or so hours of finished audio. Secure deleted. I knew after about one minute what I’d done and I couldn’t stop it. I just waiting the three minutes or so and watched it delete.
Not my finest moment.
wow, deleted three months of work? I can just see it now….”hay, what does this button do?” lol..
We’re still looking at “sometime in October” although it might be the very last day.
Still, with SiglerFest and THE DETECTIVE also in October, I’ll count that as a win. (Remember, it was me that accidentally deleted the first three months worth of work, so catching up on three months in just under two months still makes me happy.)
Also, we’d rather release the MVP audiobook in October, so we have all of NOVEMBER to fit in the ebook release of TITLE FIGHT. Naturally.
Bump for Scott!!! Where is my shucking audio book????!!!!!
oh yea..keep up the good work blah blah blah…
I have this money just burning a hole in my pocket but Scott does not seem to want it…. 😉
For us junkies that translates to: “not soon enough.”
