Summary for the week ending Mar 12, 2017

Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending March 12th, 2017.

Well, there’s 44 subscribers to the not-yet-an-email-list, so, I should probably start figuring out what the hell I’m going to do with it once there’s 93 and I have to actually launch it. If you want to help get it going, subscribe!

There’s been a couple pitches that came in right away, but the call for pitches is open and rolling. Early days, but I think the process is working pretty well. Patrons who have access to the Patron Lounge on the BBS have had a chance to review and offer feedback on these pitches, and will get to help review submissions when they come in. Hopefully we’ll see some fruit from this harvest published publically to the blog soon. Why not submit your idea for a submission you want to write for Hermetic Library?

The Post Office managed to lose a package I was expecting. It came in the door, and the put a parcel locker key in my box, but there was nothing in there. They tried to gaslight me and say I picked it up already. No, really! But I hadn’t been in to pick it up. So, now there’s this Schrödinger’s parcel flying around. Hopefully it will find out it exists soon. It has cool stuff from Quadrivium Supplies for the upcoming postal exchange!

It’s been a long sequence of cold, rainy days at the Abbey of the Library. I think it’s been over 2 weeks of rain or snow, mostly rain, now, though there was one day where it was sunny for a few hours. I’ve been working on a bunch of new and old pages on the site, as one does, and the cats are busy with cat things.

I managed to accidentally delete the old Hermetic Library shop on Cafepress. Oops! I was checking it out, because I’d posted an image of a mugs and t-shirt. I noticed some ghost shop in my config and went to delete it, but actually deleted the one I didn’t want to delete. Welp. Okay then. I was going to re-create it, but then … Cafepress is so last millennium, innit? I don’t know, but maybe I’ll set up shop somewhere else … or not. I think I sold 2 t-shirts in the last year, so it’s not like there’s a rush. But, darn, I sure did think I had a great joke with the mug which had “let it kill me” on one side and “let it fill me” on the other!
