Note: The China Narrator has since been deactivated.
We’re excited to announce the launch of The China Narrator! It’s a daily email newsletter. Sign up for it (it’s free) and you’ll get one interesting, high-quality article emailed to you once a day.
Publish Confirmation is a simple, free WordPress plugin by Long Range Media that prevents you from accidentally publishing blog posts before you’re ready. Every time you press the Publish button a little box pops up, asking you if you’re sure you want to publish the post.
The plugin has been around for a couple years but we’re just now listing it here on the LRM site.
FreeZombieBooks.com is a Long Range Media property where every day we list a handful of zombie-related Kindle books that are FREE. The look of the site has gotten very little love since it was hastily tossed up back in March, but we’re proud to say that the site has been redesigned.
Take a look:
The colors were changed, the logo is new, and the sidebar is now on the right. Another recent change we made was adding images of the covers of that day’s free books. It makes the site look more, pardon the pun, alive.
Head on over and see FreeZombieBooks.com for yourself.
We’re a bit late with the announcement here on the blog, but Long Range Media released a new Kindle ebook a couple weeks ago! The 138 Best Chrome Extensions is all about how to get the most out of Google’s amazing Chrome browser. The 138 extensions listed will help you save a bunch of time, headache, and yep, even money.
Head on over and check out The 138 Best Chrome Extensions on Amazon.
Woo hoo! We’ve got another children’s book!
Vegesaurus Rex is a short, fun, rhyming Kindle book for kids. It’s about Vinny, a vegetarian tyrannosaurus rex. His carnivorous buddies can’t fathom why anyone would want to avoid such delicacies as triceratops cake and stegosaurus sandwiches, but Vinny is resolute.

I’m excited to announce the release of my latest ebook, How to Manage Multiple Blogs Without Going Crazy. It’s based off of my 9+ years of experience and dozens of blogs created.
The ebook includes links to the PDF and audio (MP3) versions of the book for free! It checks in at more than 12,000 words in length. Go check it out on Amazon.
This is a first for Tristan and Long Range Media: a children’s book. Except that this is not a normal children’s book. Baby’s First Zombie Book is a violent, graphic, very short rhyming book. It was written and illustrated by Tristan (under a pen name). It probably isn’t something you want to show impressionable little minds without reading it yourself first, but parents who like zombie movies or zombie stories will get a big kick out of it.
And as it says in the product description on Amazon, “Buy this book for your kids and you’ll be giving them the greatest gift of all—a fighting chance at surviving the inevitable zombie apocalypse. Start them young and they’ll live to thank you later.”

I’m a creative person in some respects but incredibly uncreative in others. In that “others” category lies fiction. It’s really difficult for me to come up with ideas for fiction. I started looking for creative writing prompts but didn’t find one place with a TON of ideas/prompts in an easy-to-browse format.
Enter Creative Writing Prompts from Long Range Media. What it does is search for the hashtags #writingprompt and #writingprompts on Twitter about every half hour. It then posts those those new tweets to the Creative Writing Prompts site here on LongRangeMedia.com. The result is an automatically-updated, ever-expanding database of creative writing prompts.
Some of the writing prompts you can just read from the tweet; for others you might have to click through to another site.
Enjoy, and happy writing.
