So, why the Patreon? Think of it as motivation to get writing in a meaningful way. My intention is to release one chapter from the pieces I’m working on each weekend. Right now I have about twenty chapters I can release, so that should keep me going until 2022 and all I need to do then is stay ahead of this by writing one or two chapters a week. Not too much pressure, but hopefully enough motivation.
Two more of my short stories that made their debut at Ruthie’s Club back in the day have also received new covers this month.
The Ladz Local Lovelies series of four short stories are dear to my heart for the simple reason that they represent the first stories I ever had published when they were picked up by Ruthie’s Club.
I thought it might be worthwhile just posting a little update with where I’m at with the various projects I’m working on.
And as a hobby, the stuff ‘around’ the actual writing is something I find interesting just as much as the writing itself. And one of those things is word counts. At heart, I’m a stat hound. I love numbers, that’s why I work with them day in and day out. And, to me at least, and don’t hate me for this, there are few things quite as satisfying as a well-formatted, informative spreadsheet.
I’ve recently published two new paperback editions of my books on Amazon. Both The Slumber Party and The Big Four Ohhh! now have paperback editions in the 8×5 inch format.
One of the good things about the Lockdown (or what we’ve called a lockdown, but never really was) has been I’d had the chance to updated and refresh some of my older publications
I mentioned in the last post that I’d been having trouble with the updated copy of Holodeck converting on KDP. Well, I was able to solve the problem. Turns out that the .mobi format that Amazon uses on its Kindles does not support images over 64Kb and my cover image in the copy of Holodeck was just over this size.
I’ve updated the cover and internals of my (very) short story “Would Twins do this?”.
Just a quick post today to note a couple of updates on this website and my Amazon offering.
