August 13, 2016 – I finished a new cover for Softlife. Those of you with the old purple-cover versions, don’t worry; the story inside is exactly the same.
June 28, 2015 – I had a good weekend at the In Your Write Mind workshop at Seton Hill University in Greensburg, PA. Pitch sessions for Softlife, seminars, discussions, pretty good food, too much rain.
June 5, 2015 – I put up a Facebook author page, at www.facebook.com/jamesrhardin.author. This site will be a better place for info, though, unless people start making interesting posts.
June 3, 2015 – I scared off another voice teacher—this one moved clear to Japan! Maybe I should take the hint and stick with writing.
January 21, 2015 – My voice teacher moved to California (I hope my attempts at singing didn’t drive her off). I’ve started with another brave teacher.
July 26, 2014 – I had a nice day at the Confluence convention in Pittsburgh, PA, attending sessions, meeting people, handing out bookmarks, and watching the Parallax Second Players in action.
April 12, 2014 – I was at the Norwin Library near Irwin, PA signing and selling books, along with 19 other local authors.
September 27-28, 2013 – I attended the Context convention in Columbus, OH where I gave away three copies of Softlife in a drawing, took a couple of classes, and talked to several interesting people.
June 23, 2013 – I’ve begun uploading the files to Smashwords, Kindle Direct Publishing, and CreateSpace. Softlife will soon be available almost everywhere, as an ebook and as a trade paperback. (Well, don’t expect to see it on the shelves of a bookstore, but you should be able to order it anywhere.)
January 16, 2013 – I started taking voice lessons. We’ll see whether they improve my future filk recordings.
