Shepherd officially launched into beta!


Fun day, Shepherd is officially launched into public beta :)

A TON of data entry and editing over the last 4 to 5 weeks. 409 book lists, 2305 books along with all the data and cover images, and 2,452 author profiles.

Lots more to come :)

btw, a really nice writeup here by the awesome Marton who built this :)

And, a short interview with Phil about the project here. And, another one here too. And, a nice podcast interview here on WritersCast. Another one here much later on too in the Oxford Indie Book Fair.

Funny Calico story…


Background… Calico calls breast bobos.

At some point when he was little he got to watch some animated music video and saw this one with Dwayne Johnson in Moana (this video cracks me up). Anyway, because of this, Calico has a deep-seated belief that being able to move your bobos like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is the epitome of strength :). I work out a fair bit and he usually likes to join in, and the end of each workout is a question “can you move your bobos yet?” One day buddy… one day… :).

This is bwb’s personal blog so he can share his thoughts with the world, however scary or silly they might be. Plus family and friends can track what I am up too, and where I am in the world.

I am pretty simple. I love Mangos. I love the ocean, although mostly at sunset as I’m a ginger. I love to travel, eat exotic food, read, and use my imagination. I love creating and developing ideas into businesses, understanding how all businesses work, and building cool stuff. I am a globalist and see the entire world as my responsibility and playground. And, I am married to an amazing woman who makes life even more fun :)! And, we are now the proud parents of Calico Jack :).
