TrackerBox Mac Kickstarter Reached the Goal

TrackerBox Mac - Track Your Book Sales on OSX -- Kicktraq Mini


I pretty much said everything in this update on Kickstarter, but I’ll repeat some of it here:


There are still nine days to go, and while we reached the goal, the goal was basically the minimum necessary to make the product. Additional funds will help me get some additional features I have planned for BOTH versions done sooner than they would be done, otherwise.

Why else should you back it now?

The discount! $14.99 off the regular price (more if you back the combined package).

Also, Beta! Only Kickstarter backers will have access to beta versions. There may be a pre-order (I have to figure out if this is possible with my shopping cart provider), but it will not be discounted, and there will not be a public beta.

Again, my thanks go out to everyone that’s backed the campaign, or that has told their friends about it, or have posted or shared on social media. It wouldn’t have happened without you!

TrackerBox Mac Kickstarter: 15 Days To Go, Writing Challenge, & Patreon

TrackerBox Mac - Track Your Book Sales on OSX -- Kicktraq Mini

The title says it all, really. This is pretty amazing. Just having a real opportunity to make TrackerBox Mac a reality is something I’ve been working toward for a long time. As a Windows user, myself, I don’t have a good reason to make TrackerBox for Mac, other than the regular inquiries I get, and a desire to be able to tell them, “Yes!” TrackerBox basically makes enough money to cover its costs, and I don’t see that changing, much. It isn’t a big money play for me. It’s about being able to help people, and I know it helps people.

Writing Challenge

I’ve taken on a challenge with a writer friend of mine, Michael Warren Lucas, to write three novels in three months. Writing a novel in a month isn’t exactly something new to me. The vast majority of Shattered was written in a month, and the same is true for a couple other books. The trick will be doing it three times in a row.

I’ll be attempting to write three new Grim Repo books, with the goal of getting them released in the first half of next year. It’ll be fun, it’ll be nerve-wracking, and I can’t wait to see what happens to Grimm and his crew.

You can follow along on twitter by searching the hash-tag #idiotwriterchallenge. If you’re crazy like us, you can join in!


In line with the challenge, I’ve started a Patreon page. If you don’t know what Patreon is, it’s a place where you can support me directly for a couple bucks a month, and get some nifty rewards while doing it. Among the rewards, I’m giving patrons early access to drafts, copies of books, access to a monthly Google Hangout Q&A, and other potentially nifty things.

This month, you’ll get my new novella Making Up Lost Time. No, there’s no link, because it’s not available yet! But here’s the cover!

If you like my books, if you like what I’m doing, Patreon is a way you can directly help me do more of it!
