Building Shepherd - Slowly but surely...
2,155 authors have turned in a book list for Shepherd or committed to writing one (amazing as always 😃). (note - I had the wrong number last week)
October 1st to October 15th
Catching up on publishing :)
Serita is the new part-time editor I hired last week and she is doing an amazing job. We have ~300 book recommendation lists we are working to edit and send onward to authors to review. I think we will catch up by early November at the current rate.
Serita has been a big help as editing was taking a lot of my time. This frees me up to spend more time on new features, testing, and marketing.
Bookshelf and search preview + ETA
The search feature is being implemented now and is starting to look really good. I think it will be ready in another 6 weeks. I am hoping to launch the search feature, topic pages, and the new front page in early December. But that is pretty aggressive and I'll have a better idea next month.
Here is an example of the search feature in action (not all data is accurate as still implementing results/cosmetics):
What else is going on?
Tomorrow we are driving to my favorite city in the world, Valencia Spain :). We are going to stay there for a few months now that things are looking really good just for a change of pace (plus the winter weather is very nice).
Have a great weekend,
