Back matter.

 

 

I keep finding odd bits that need cleaning up in the editing section but the formatting is almost complete and after a rocky morning of bug fixing managed to get scrivener to compile it correctly. Still some things to sort out (artwork being top of the list), but thoughts now turn to the rear section. I have added the author biography and a page liking to the first book but now I find my self thinking about adding previews of the next two books that are (time line wise) also due out.

I still haven’t finished Exiles (which is also due this year), but atleast the deadline is looking like it will be possible.

I need a holiday.

See you in port next time Airship Captains.

Goodreads Author Page Added

I have added another page to the menu links. After a somewhat arduous task (cause by the merger of Goodreads and Shelfari) I am now recognised as the author of my own books.

I have been filling in my author page but finding some bugs on the book detail pages that are preventing me from adding additional materials.

I hope this bug is fixed soon, but until then,

What is the question when Patreon is the answer.

I have been looking into setting up a Patreon account in order to raise funds and like many others I feel like it’s the wrong thing to do and I keep getting stuck on the same questions
What can I offer that will entice people to invest in me?
Am I really worth receiving investment?
Is it really worth it?
Is this really the best way to go about seeking investment?

  • New layout and new page

    Not sure that I like the new style but I had to choose it to get the menu.

    I have also added another page to the blog listing my planned books and I now realise that I have a long journey ahead of me.

    Anyway time to get back to work.
