Ooh, Round Numbers Are Exciting

With this latest, I have published 40 titles through Smashwords.  Generally, one number is as exciting as another… at least in absolute terms.  But this is a round number, and people love round numbers.  We all freaked out for the year 2,000.  When people own cars they tend to notice when they hit 10,000 or 50,000 or whatever (personally, I’ve owned exactly one car in my life that had mileage under 100,000… and I noticed when I hit 100,000.  Because it was a big round number.)

I think round numbers feel like completion to us.  They have a certain symmetry to them that tickles our sense of esthetics.  They’re psychologically satisfying, much like a good slice of pie after a meal.

So here’s my latest slice of pie.  I think you will find it both bitter and sweet, so maybe there’s a cup of espresso on the metaphorical side.

Here’s Pixel People, prequel to Adversary—you can explore that aspect of it in the post before this one.

Find it on Smashwords (and additional outlets to be updated below as distribution proceeds).
