Updating My Customers
IFTTT Stuff / February 5, 2017

I was able to see my second version of the Utilizing IFTTT book has now been made available. The end of last year, I went through the reviews and attempted to reply and convey the update is in the making. That has now been completed and available online. Due to IFTTT changing their platform, it allowed me to update the book, and improve on my initial writing. Admittedly, when I wrote the first version, I was just experimenting. I then seen there was an interest, and continued to write.   SO this morning, I went in and replied to all the prior comments, conveying the second edition is now online. Speaking with Amazon support, those prior purchasing my book, should be able to get the updated version for free. I hope this is the case. Those contemplating on purchasing the book, please understand it purpose is introduction. I appreciate all those who have purchased it. Without you, I would not be continuing on this path of writing. #AuthorMattCole, #IFTTT, #UtilizingIFTTT, Utilizing IFTTT.

I wanted to reach out and update all. My first novel is now published through Amazon, via digital. I have the proof (paperback) sent to me. I should receive it next week.

Quick update – Progress Report
Happenings / November 10, 2016

Over the last months, I have been working on a novel, as time allows. Some days provide me a couple of hours, while other days remain barren with time. However, I have recently completed (I think I have) with the novel, breaking 70K words in the story. I have two people willing to beta read it for me. I wait with anticipation to see how my time was spent on it. Sight and Sound I am not much on fluff. Working in a Corporate environment, you tend to get to the point. While I had the story line, I had to go back and fill in some details, in order to provide more visual on what was going on. To be transparent, I found writing the novel more difficult than I had initially believed. My hat goes off to those dedicated writers, relying on the whims of peoples interest, as you hope to feed your family on the art of writing. I have a full-time job, that usually exceeds the 40 hours a week. I am stepping out gently in the writing world, and accepting all feedback with grace. How else can we improve, if we are not provided critical,…
