A Blast from the Past

I was startled looking at my website today when I saw the hit counter, which tells me the site has had more than 23 million hits since December of 2000.

Of course, I have to put that in perspective. It's really just the same forty-two people coming back again and again to see if DANCE is done yet, isn't it?

(I suspect the Not A Blog actually gets MORE visitors than my main site. A mention here -- of a forthcoming appearance, a book sale, a news item -- seems to generate a lot more response than anything on my Appearances page, my Signed Books page, or my News page).

No point to any of this, just... hey, 23 million hits, that's kinda cool...

No telling how many of you have actually been around since 2000, and how many found my site and/or the Not A Blog just last week. Some of you newcomers, though, might enjoy giving a listen to the series of podcasts I recorded back in 2005, to promote A FEAST FOR CROWS. (I assume you old timers have heard them all already). They're all at


I imagine I will be doing more of these when DANCE WITH DRAGONS comes out. I'll need to think up some more topics. (Maybe "Deadlines, and Why They Should Never Be Missed" would be a good one). Meanwhile, these may entertain and enlighten those of you who haven't heard 'em.

And try not to laugh TOO hard at the part where I say I hope to finish DANCE by the end of the year. I really meant it, honest.

Yep. I check every night before I go to bed for updates on ADWD(mostly because I can open a new tab during those pesky hulu commercials). However, if not for checking this nightly I nor any of my friends who I have been updating would not know about the HBO series whatsoever. Now that we are all pumped for it I have that to look forward too when I pop on here as well. I also love the football commentary during season. I like hearing about the Jets because they represent the defense the Giants once had and should still have today.

Looking forward to Dance as much as anyone, get it right first tho :) If it takes another 6 months it will just give me an excuse to re-read the rest before I read Dance :)

To be honest the buzz about the HBO series is something I have never seen before for a series that will not be aired til next year, I am so looking forward to it. I really think HBO can do it it justice as no other visual medium could. Congo-rats on the greenlight from HBO!
