Yes, I’m a geek.
Using Minecraft, I built life-sized walkthrough models of the spaceships I write about in Hunting the Corrigan’s Blood and Warpaint from the schematics I drew. I did it to keep myself from making stupid location mistakes in the stories. (And let’s be real…it was fun. And when I was a kid, I used to pray to God to send me to space instead of heaven if I died. At this point, building my own spaceships in Minecraft is as close to space as I’m ever going to get.)
Thing is, they’re pretty cool. I did them for myself, and I use them for story accuracy—but when I mentioned them to an interviewer, he got really enthusiastic about them. And pointed out that it’s possible to make copies of maps that other people can then download and use in THEIR copies of Minecraft. (Something I’d known, but hadn’t considered in relationship to myself.)
So I thought it might be cool to zip them up and let the folks who buy the books download them as a “Thanks for buying the books” gift.
But…would this even interest you?
The friggin’ poll software isn’t working. AAAAAGH.
I’m putting together another poll with different software now. (I HATE SOFTWARE THAT DOESN’T WORK!)
Comment below, and I’ll different poll software in this spot in a minute.
By the way…
Vote will give me a rough idea of the percentage of my readers who’d be able to use the maps.
Comments and questions will let me know what you’re actually thinking. I appreciate both.
IF COMMENTS DON’T WORK FOR YOU
If you vote, apparently you can’t reply. Or there’s some other glitch.
But anyway, if you can’t reply on the post page, you can reply HERE. I can’t reply on this page, so will only be able to reply to posts on the linked comments page below.
