Hey everyone! It’s certainly been a while since I last wrote an update post. Never fear, I’m still here furiously tapping away on my keyboard every night as Volume 3 progresses. I’ve considered making a post before now, but my old Google Sites page was really bumming me out with its lack of features. Not […]Read more "Official Website is Launched!"
Well, I certainly didn’t think I’d be making another news post so soon, but here we are. After receiving a few messages from readers on my Royal Road account, I have come to the realization that I’m not supposed to be hosting the entire book for free online according to my agreement with Amazon. Because […]Read more "Royal Road, and How to Read Volume 2 Early [18JUN2020]"
“The Algorithm” is a wonderful catchall for anytime I don’t know how things work on the internet. It’s sort of a meme at this point to blame it for anything that goes wrong online, but at the same time, I’m pretty sure it’s the entire reason I’ve found any level of success with my writing. […]Read more "At the Mercy of the Algorithm [16JUN2020]"
Hey all! It’s been a while since I posted an update, but I come with some significant news: as of this weekend, the first draft of Volume 2 has been completed! With a final word count of just over 118,000 words, it extended much farther beyond where I thought it would go, but I’m happy […]Read more "Volume 2 Rough Draft Complete! [07JUN2020]"
As the title of this post might have implied, I have some exciting news! After a few weeks of emailing and e-signing documents, there is now an official Restart Again audiobook in the works! I was contacted by someone at Tantor Media about the potential of acquiring the audio rights to the project via my […]Read more "Exciting News! [11MAY2020]"
So, this will actually be a short update, I promise. I hit that fabled 100,000 word mark as of my writing session last night! I figured with as many times as I referenced it in the past news posts, I should probably announce that the feat has been achieved. I’m in the last chapter of […]Read more "A Legitimately Brief Update [28APR2020]"
Well, here we are. Another Sunday, another update post. I’ve actually been thinking about writing this up for a while, but it’s especially prescient tonight: How do I deal with criticism? When I decided to publish my story online, I knew that I’d be opening myself up to criticism. I wasn’t particularly sheltering myself from […]Read more "Dealing With Criticism [19APR2020]"
I’ll do my best to keep this one brief, I promise! I’ve been making some great progress on Volume 2 this past week. The last few chapters have been percolating in my mind for a long time now, so it’s been an exciting time to actually get them written out and flesh out the details. […]Read more "Brief Update [12APR2020]"
Hey everyone, quick update for you! I have officially created a Twitter handle for all things Restart Again. You can find me there @RA_Adam_Ladner. It’s not the most ideal handle, but unsurprisingly, all the combinations I could think of for “Restart Again” were already taken. Go figure. If you’re reading this post, and Twitter is […]Read more "Social Media Part II [05APR2020]"
Things are a bit weird right now. I’m writing this post from work while most businesses are shutting down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As I’m considered an essential employee, not much has changed for me. There are some posters around the lab telling us to wash our hands, and certain hallways/locations are off limits […]Read more "The Future of Social Media and Updates [30MAR2020]"
