Wait. Wait. Wait.
Soon – it is going to start moving, this is the calm before the storm; I am sure. Say good-bye to the swank header I had on this page. I got flashy Jake Elliot business cards with the matching logo of the old site. Oops, too late now. I like the interface of this template far better than the old site, but graphically, this is very boring. Efficient – but boring.
I hope to find a clever and inexpensive web-designer, someone who can make this site look good. I believe once I see a book cover, I’ll have something to work with. That should be in the works now. I’m very excited. I’ll have to see if I can show it to people or if I’ll need to keep it under my hat. I’ll ask the artist when he shows me the prototype.
The launch party has been decided. My wife and I agreed that Elements Kitchen and Martini Bar will be where, at 5:30 pm on the 3rd of December. Although there will only be a few guests that I can afford to buy dinner, I’m going to talk to the owner and see if I can get the same menu deal for anyone coming in for the Jake Elliot Launch Party. It is only an idea right now, next weekend we will hammer out the details with the owners at Elements and make it real. Once the menu has been confirmed, I’ll post it as well as the directions to Elements so you can also come join in the festivities.
This month I also added a ‘My Book’ tab. The tab will inform about book summaries and of course include directions as to how to find my book since it isn’t going to be in nationwide bookstores. Remember, I chose to publish with a smaller press so as to keep creative integrity. Getting the book isn’t too difficult really; in fact it is far more convenient than needing to go to a mall and using up all your expensive gasoline, it can be mailed directly to your home, after the 1st of December.
