WordPress is about as much fun as root canal.

This lovely blog is built on a WordPress engine, which I usually like, because it’s fairly easy (for me, anyway). But sometimes… yeah, sometimes.

There’s something going on under the hood with WordPress, where my desktop site will update, but those same changes won’t deliver to the mobile site if I pull it up on my phone. And if I don’t notice (which I don’t always), there will be weeks where my website goes unchanged if you look at it on mobile, even though I update it at least once a week regularly. And worse, if I look at the mobile site on the desktop (which is a preview option)? The changes are there. It’s only if I look at it on the phone that it breaks.

Caching. Yes, I know. And no, that’s not the problem At least, I don’t think it’s the problem. I think it has something to do with plugins, but I’m not sure what. So my troubleshooting consists of “What’s the last post on the mobile site? Oh, okay. What plugins updated that week? Ah. THAT one!” and disabling that plugin. It usually works, but I’d like a real answer at some point.

I suppose I’ll poke at it when I have time. Which I don’t right now, because writing and proofreading and planning and more planning…

Heir to the Firstborn

Heir to the Firstborn is going to be massive. Bigger than Wings of Air massive. How do I know? It’s at just a hair over 70K words… and I’m still not quite at the halfway mark. Maybe two or three chapters to halfway. Then things are going to get… well, more interesting and more fast-paced. No, I am not splitting this into two books. I DID that already. Remember? This was supposed to be the second half of Wings of Air.

I’m almost done with the proofreading for Table of Stone, and at that point of editing where I keep having to stop myself from reading because it’s that good. I should be finished with the final proofs by the end of the week, well in advance of the September release.

Hidden Things releases wide tomorrow, and getting it set up was interesting — I apparently tried to do it before it was officially out of Kindle Unlimited, which made Draft to Digital have fits. I had to unsubmit and resubmit for publication this morning. But if everything goes well, Hidden Things will be available in Barnes and Noble, Kobo, the Apple Store, and a bunch of other places (and libraries!) tomorrow.

And… sometime this week, we should have the first official announcement on Sooper Sekrit project. Which is exciting and terrifying all at the same time. Once that goes live, I’ll post it here. And hopefully, WordPress will update on the mobile site, too.
