I'm having so much fun creating the website for Boiled Cat - my self-published book due out this spring. It's a good thing I like what I'm doing, I've been working on it for about two months with another one or two to go. The site is over thirty pages and none of the pages are short. Each page has a good five to twenty links leading to bands, games, videos, articles, and pictures. Yesterday I wrote thirty band notes. You know, those little scraps of paper you find between the seats after a trip with a really random phrases on them. The kind that makes you laugh - or raise your eyebrow. Anyway, my bed was covered with them after I scanned them all in. I've been writing articles too. Not to mention doing the final edit on the novel itself. I used up all my black dalek sticky notes doing that and had to use some blue ones too - but I want this book to be perfect. That said, I'm pretty sure I'll miss stuff and there will be one or two little mistakes. It probably wouldn't matter how many times I went over it. But back to the website - I think the best thing about creating this site is listening to the music. For every place the band visits in the book I've linked to local punk bands. Some of these guys and girls are amazing. I discovered that Houston has the most incredible music scene. I think I'm going to be buying a lot of new punk rock when this is all said and done. I hope I make some fans for the bands too. I mean this is really what the Boiled Cat website is all about - sharing things that interest me and exploring all the great things in the world that are related to punk rock.
