I gave OrigamiYoda.com a soft launch a while back. http://www.origamiyoda.com
Lately, I’ve been posting a lot of stuff on this blog and the new one, but they definitely serve different purposes.
I almost lost the domain name. In fact for a while it was lost.
Somehow the name of the book leaked out before I got around to registering the Website. (It may have been one of my own blog posts orone of those publisher’s round-ups.)
Anyway, someone must have heard about the book and bought the name just in case.
Then fate played it’s fickle hand. The book was delayed by an entire year.
A year passed and nothing happened, so the domain-grabber dropped it. As you can imagine, I didn’t dawdle this time around.
So, the moral of the story is: register your Website before your book title is made public.
