And today it was reported that there are over 1 billion websites around the world. See, if I had not put up my website we would still be at 999,999,999. OK, I'm sure the world wasn't waiting for my website but I've always wanted to be the lucky customer who won the 1 millionth (or whatever number) person award. I was going through the tollgates of the Mackinac Bridge many years ago when someone got (I think it was) the award for being the 1,000,000 bridge crosser just five cars ahead of mine. If we had finished our breakfast and got on the road a few seconds earlier it could have been me! I hope the family that won at least got to cross the bridge for free.
My website for The Roaring Road
went live this morning. I've already found several flaws and will correct them tonight or tomorrow, but hey, this is my first-ever website! I had to do on-the-job training and I'll admit it took longer than it should have. Even at that, I used a beginner's website design software that was mostly drag and drop with very little HTML. Problem was, sometimes things dragged but did not drop where I wanted them. Damn software thinks it knows more than me
But I finally beat it into submission (or I surrendered, take your choice).
So go take a look. There's a preview of the characters and storyline, some flapper humor from the 1920s and an email signup for advance publishing notice for the book. All part of my sneaky promotion plan! Now all I have to do is finish writing it . . .
