New Web Site for Cantarabooks

My publisher has redesigned her web site. The new look is sleeker and definitely more inviting. I was never too thrilled with the previous design. This is much easier on the eyes.

You can view my author page and leave comments here. Please do. That would be fun.

Still no word on that mysterious lawsuit though. Hopefully we will know something more about that soon.


More Thoughts on Cantarabooks’ Problems

Regrettably, my initial post about my publisher’s legal issues was very emotion-driven and one-sided. Of course, my relationship with Cantarabooks has been and remains cordial, but I decided today that I should try and contact John Edward Gill to see if I could get the other side of the story out of him. After all, his web site is that of a serious person and not one who should seem absurdly vindictive or frivolous. And it seems like it should be easy enough to get in touch with him.

So I sent him an email, and we’ll see what happens.

In the interest of full disclosure, this is the message I just sent him.

Mr. Gill,

I’ve come to understand that you are undergoing some legal complaint against Cantara Christopher and/or her publishing company Cantarabooks. I am also a Cantarabooks author, and although my interactions with the company have been professional and on the up and up, so far as I can tell, I wondered what the nature of your complaint is and if it is something other authors represented by their imprint might need to be concerned about.

Time Cube

One of the inspirations for the TH2 character in Salvation is the Time Cube guy, who has been posting his insane time rants on the web since 1997. I always imagine Thom Hawkins, Jr. as a guy who eventually be this crazy but isn’t quite there yet. I hadn’t looked at the Time Cube site in several years, and I checked it this morning just to see if it’s still there. It is, and crazier than ever. If this has somehow escaped your web radar the last 10 years, you really should check it out and browse through some of it.

As far as I can tell, his theory is that there are four days occurring simultaneously around the globe, but that’s about as much as I understand of it. But then, I don’t think it’s possible to understand much more than that about it.
