A Brief Pause

In Rule of law on October 9, 2012 at 7:04 am

Thanks so much to everyone who wrote and said such nice things about my first foray into the world of documentary video! I really appreciate your support. The video is now the most-viewed item I’ve posted, which is very encouraging. And the range of countries from which readers have logged into Worlds of Law generally is mind-bending: Australia, India, Pakistan, Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, the United States, Canada, Britain, Ireland, Iceland, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, France, Austria, Switzerland, Croatia, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Spain, Italy, Israel, Jordan, Russia … the power of the web for self-publishing is jaw-dropping.

FYI, I’m in the process of purchasing some more serious equipment—the judicial bobbleheads video was made with a Flip camera and an old Mac, relatively primitive stuff—so that future videos (of which I hope there will be many) will have higher production values. I’ll be in Europe beginning in mid-November, and I’m looking forward to creating mini documentaries while on the road in the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Belgium, and Germany.

In the meantime, though, I’m going to be back again at the end of this week: I’m taking a micr0-pause from blogging to review the “second pass” proofs of my forthcoming book The Rule of the Clan. This is basically the final stage in the proofreading process for me as the book heads into production, and it takes a lot of care and attention to get right. (The only thing that will remain for me to check after the second pass is the index, which should be ready in early November, just before my trip to Europe.) So I’m going to be away for just a couple of more days—but with a great deal more to come.

So do check in again at the end of the week—or consider signing up for email announcements about new posts. It’s easy: just enter your email address where prompted in the center column below. You’ll then be alerted to new content through your inbox (and you’ll always have the option to unsubscribe). Convenient, safe, and a great way to ensure that you won’t miss the latest Worlds of Law post!
