Release Counter

Gerard over at The Generator Blog posted a link to a free customizable countdown timer generator, the sort bloggers use for days left until Christmas or New Year's. I thought authors could use as a sidebar widget for their upcoming releases, i.e.:

The generator host does tack on a code for an online dating ad link at the end, so if you'd rather not have that on your blog, delete everything after the right pointy bracket after /object.

    I am counting the days to the release of Evermore. Still the one that has me waiting impatiently is the story of Richard. So...I'm wondering if Richard is going to get his own story, and if so, when...

  2. Thanks for the link to the counter PBW. I thought it was pretty cool and very easy to add to my blog.

  3. What a great counter!

    The "code for an online dating ad link" made me consider just how much fun might it be to create a false page for an adjusted link that put your characters out there in the dating-sphere.

    In your spare time, of course.

  4. Thanks for the tip. I added it---realized I only have like 10 days until my next book's release date--went into promotion freak out (because I am weak)--spent the morning cranking out useless, if fun to create, blog bumperstickers and researching places to post excerpts--developed a mysterious rash on my elbow and had to search out animal crackers.
    So, really, thanks. (sigh)
