website news

www.MarkRHunter.com has reached over 300 hits since going online a couple of weeks ago -- not bad in such a short time, and with hardly any publicity so far.  Emily has put up a Twitter feed and a Facebook "Like" button, and we just went live with a linkswap/fanlist page.

So far my biggest contribution was my announcement of June, 2011 for the publication of Storm Chaser, along with posting the opening scene. I'm preparing some short stories featuring characters from the novel -- pre Storm Chaser, of course (no spoilers!) -- and some other ideas such as featuring the websites of friends and fellow writers. I'll be coming up soon with a poll, to see what people might like to see there.

Look at me -- all grown up with my own web site!  I might have been able to do it without Emily, but it would have been a pale, puny thing compared to what she's produced.

As long as I've got Emily behind me on the webmaster front, it should help a lot!

The site looks lovely! And the trailer video was a great touch. ^_^

:-) Whether it will help sell books to start out I don't know, but surely a website is necessary for any writer these days ...

I Stumbled it for you, so hopefully you'll get some extra hits. :)

If anyone else you know uses StumbleUpon, ask them to thumbs up the site.

StumbleUpon? This is a new corner of the internet for me. Thanks! I'll check it out, and keep my eyes open for other users.

Way to go! It's cool seeing things come together for you. (After years of hard work - it's great seeing it start to pay off.)

Yeah, over 30 years of serious writing! I once figured that if you average out my hours and expenses, and then figured in the average advance for a first novel, I was working for about .003 cents an hour. Now all I need is that first advance ... :-)

I love your website -- I've been browsing, and it's quite polished. Huge kudos to Emily (and you, of course.) The two of you are a formidable team.

Well, it's almost all WebmasterEmily ... but what the heck, I'll take partial credit. ;-) Thanks!
