How much longer?

One question I am frequently asked is: How much longer until such-and-such book is out?

That’s always a hard question to answer.

However, in my roaming this week I discovered progress bars on another author’s website in regards to where the books were at. My first question was, “How did he do that?” immediately after thinking, “Well, that’s bloody awesome!” My answer came up fast with a Google search. How did I ever live without Google?

Then, it was a matter of changing a few things to get it to adapt to my blog, but BOOM! Now you have a progress bar off the right.

You should see it there near the top. So, if you are ever in doubt of where a certain book is, check here. If you don’t see the one you’re looking for, drop me a line and I will add it. For right now, I’ve only included the ones I think are what most people are waiting for.

Where did I find this cool information so that you don’t have to go looking for it later? (This is also a reminder for myself so I know!)

I hope you enjoy watching the progress changes for your favorite books/series in the future. I know it will inspire me to keep working on them so I can change the bars (except maybe for those times when I’ve gone from writing (where I’ve reached 100%) to editing (starting over at 0%), but that is the nature of the beast.

Let’s get to that progress! I’m off to write now.
