Ballistics by the inch

One day.

Welcome to November. And that means it’s time to crunch some numbers.

For Ballistics By The Inch, we had a total of 293,427 hits in October. That beats September by about 12,000 hits, and puts us within about ten thousand of our all-time-high month when the site first launched – that amounts to about one day’s hits. The total overall hits is now 3,818,460 – we should break four million in about three weeks, about the time of our second anniversary. Wow. Thanks everyone!

And a personal note: I’ve mentioned in passing that sometime in the very near future I will sign the final contract for the commercial publication of Communion of Dreams, with the book to be rolling off the presses in just a few short months. When I sign that contract, we’ll need to pull all the downloadable content from my homepage – but no worry, because the book will be available in electronic formats for different readers at a very reasonable price, as well as being available in both hardcover and paperback versions. Word of this has helped prompt a surge in downloads in the last month, and October’s totals were double that for September – overall, some 1,200 downloads of the complete novel. A nice affirmation, and puts the total downloads of the book at something approaching 29,000. Thanks, everyone – I hope you decide to get the updated version and/or a hardcopy of the book when it comes out soon!

So, happy November!
