Automate Yourself {flashback}

 

I received a request for the location of Rig it Right’s free chapter “automate yourself” – that never made it out into the ether, it would seem. Either that or we just aren’t looking under the correct rock. Here is the free chapter (I don’t see it on Elsevier’s website):  AUTOMATE YOURSELF.pdf flowchart
I haven’t read this pdf in five years – it might be outdated. And, I believe it is unedited. Well, enjoy. I hope you get something out of it. Given that I’m teaching programming again – perhaps my class would like this. Even though we’re utilizing Processing (making games); problem solving is problem solving.†
Sincerely,
Tina

Just in time for the holidays.

See this #AmazonGiveaway for a chance to win: Absolute Darkness (Kindle Edition). https://giveaway.amazon.com/p/90e6f1d5dc0afa93/?ref_=tsm_4_em_h_dashboard.
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.
See Official Rules http://amzn.to/GArules.

There are so many tools that Amazon gives you. I’ve been learning about all of them.  This is an interesting method for having a giveaway via Amazon itself.  A couple of weeks ago I hosted an online book launch where I did the give a ways manually (well, with a random number generator based upon the guest that were active on the page). The first time I ran this contest via Amazon I sent it out on twitter and it sold out in 2 minutes.  That’s impossible. Smells like bots. Which intrigues me. Very interesting.  I’ll have to go researching to see what others have found.  (Yes, this is what I do with a vacation. Figure out how things work.)

Absolute Darkness available now on Amazon and Kindle

If you are afraid of tight, dark, watery places—beware. Absolute Darkness is now available on Kindle and Amazon. You can read it right now on Kindle! The print version will be available in a couple of days from Amazon.

Here’s the scoop on how to get a good deal. Buy the kindle book—I was able to set the price low there. Then you can get the matchbook price—where you get the print version too, at a cheaper price!  The print version alone costs more: Amazon sets the minimum.  If you are patient, I’ve set up a sale for December 3-10th for .99 cents.  That’s the soonest I could run a sale.

I’m so humbled by this indulgent, selfish moment. This one is for me. Everyone that has put up with me, listened, supported, brought wine, consoled, put up with my questions…thank you. The wonderful editor on this project, Sherron Ostrander, deserves a medal. She has taught me more than she could ever know and held my hand so much in these last months. The writer’s club that started it all and helped me with the outline and direction—you all rock: Matt Maloney, Pat Quinn, Kent Knowles and Denise Smith (unofficial member).

I hope you enjoy and that it scares the devil out of you.

warmly,

…tina

Alexander

While finishing up the final touches on “Absolute Darkness” a group of us have challenged each other with Novel November. So, I look forward to seeing what can be accomplished in a month. (Sure, with make up classes and recovering from shutting a campus down and making it an evacuation center this past week – why not.) This novel,”Alexander” will be the origin story of Alexander and will explore his relationship with the energy being that he struggles with for all eternity. Unknown to Alexander, there is something more unique about his antagonist than Alexander can even imagine.

Meanwhile, I hope to have “Absolute Darkness” available before the holiday season.
