Terra Draconus (The Dragon World)

I have been less than productive of late and just haven’t felt like working on any of my books. I am trying to finish off Exiles as that is the first of the phase #0 books, but I am just getting nowhere. In a fit of boredom I have been trying out some 3D Art and the following images are just my playing around.

The manuscript that inspired these images is far from complete and I was hoping to have finished it by now, however, depression is a nasty condition and I just constantly feel down about my lack of artistic ability to get things from brain to paper.

I have a few days leave and hope it will help me out.

I also have a meeting with another Writer soon called Liz Hill and am looking forward to that. For the next few days I will be down in Windsor (UK) so keep a look out for a bloke with a black hoody with a large white skull on the back and the slogan “Deploy, Dominate, Disappear.”

 

That is all for now.

See you in port soon my fellow Rouges and Airship Captains.

Amazon publishing bug!

aswtf

Yes I have been struck by the invisible publishing bug.

What is this bug?

The bug is where the KDP preview is different to the look inside display. Above is the start of my latest ebook as shown by Amazon “Look inside”. This is disappointing because at not point is the text in my book shown as red!

I currently use Scriviner as my formatter and compiler and in that the text is black on white. If i compile and view using kindle installed on my computer again the text is black on white. If I upload to kdp and use the online viewer, the text is black on white and the download preview is the same aswell.

This is upsetting and explains a few things. I have had to export to html and found a few more bugs in the generated html source. Looks like I will have to hack through that file if I can find the time around NaNoWriMo.
