I’m On Sirius XM

My friend Jordan Crook and I are now on Sirius XM channel 102, called Indie, where we run TechCrunch Radio, a live pitch-off that we run on the radio. It’s a load of fun. You can listen to it on Tuesdays at 6pm Eastern and they play it again every few days. The next time you can hear it is at 6pm on Thursday.

Paperback Copies Of School Police Just Arrived!

The paperback version of School Police just arrived and they’re beautiful. Sonia Budner’s excellent cover really brings the little book together and I’m acceptably pleased with the inside design (I did it myself). If you’d like a free copy, simply email me at john@biggs.cc but the ebook is free with Kindle Unlimited and it’s a fun little read. Let me know what you think!

As I’ve begun marketing Mytro, I slowly began to realize that the average parent doesn’t want to give their YA a YA novel on a Kindle or other device. Given that my own son just lost my wife’s Kindle in his bed (how, we don’t know) I realized I need a paperback ASAP. You can buy it here.

Mytro Is Here!

I’m pleased to announce that Mytro is now available on Amazon.com. It’s available as an ebook now but will be available as a paperback shortly.

It’s been a long road and it’s been a great deal of fun building a book and learning about self-publishing. I’m glad I got to share it with you.

I’ll be offering a few things in the next few weeks to sweeten the pot for buyers but anything you can do to help out in these crucial first few says would be amazing. I appreciate your support and look forward to your thoughts on the book!

I Switched Hosts And It Was Great

I’ve started using DigitalOcean to host my websites – I’ll be moving them over slowly – but it’s great to see how far hosting has come in the decade I’ve been messing with websites. I haven’t had a CLI into any of my servers in years and it’s a great feeling to pop into the server and mess around a little even though I’m horrible at Ubuntu these days.

It’s been 14 years since I started up my first Linux machine in Warsaw, Poland and now that platform rules the web. That I can boot a virtual machine in 60 seconds on DigitalOcean is amazing and that it stays up – with some hiccups – is great.

Special thanks to my buddy Tom Printy who saved me when I really messed things up.
