On Writing - Topic - Fallen Throne

  • Podcast up and running

    April 10, 2017

    After taking much longer than I thought, the World of Grey podcast, WOGcast, is finally up and running on itunes.  I'll be releasing a chapter a week, narrated by the author.  I'm still getting the hang of recording, but the overall quality should improve over time.  You can check it out at the link below.

  • Done Editing

    August 8, 2016

    Well, it took a lot longer than expected, but I am finally done editing. I guess the advantage of taking 6 years to publish your book is you have plenty of time to edit.

    The only thing left to do is prep the book for kindle publication, which involves one more pass, but this one is much quicker. Hopefully in two weeks time I will have a book 2 out for people to read.

    Thanks for hanging in there.

  • Edit and Cover Update #2

    May 27, 2016

    So, first edit run through is done. Now I"m starting my final read through, where I read it out loud for a couple people, so all the dialogue and prose sounds right. After that, I'll have to do some compatibility testing for kindle.

    All in all, still about a month out, but it's getting there.

  • Cover Progress

    April 8, 2016

    I've been going through and doing a lot of spelling corrections, grammar fixes and checking continuity, but, I thought I'd share progress on something else. The cover for book 2. I'm working with artist John Ly.

  • Kindle eBook release

    May 11, 2015

    Well, it took a bit longer than anticipated, and there still might be some cover font graphic changes made down the road, but the finished version of the text is done and ready for consumption.

    You can buy it for $2.99 from the kindle store.

  • Slight Delay

    April 13, 2015

    So when I was converting the book into the proper document style, I realized the final copy looked terrible for some reason on the kindle preview. I didn't know how this happened, but it had made a mess of the formatting. Luckily I have several versions of the book saved at all times.

    What I found out is that there was a bunch of formatting changes I had implemented in the shorter version of the book which I had previously published on kindle, but I had not made those same changes to the long draft.

    What this means is I have to re-indent every paragraph, re-break every chapter and re-align every section break.
    Originally I had planned to have the book up today, but next Monday is now my target date for having the book up for sale. It'll be $2.99 on the kindle store. I'll keep everyone updated.

  • Updated Cover

    April 1, 2015

     The cover is almost done.  The book should be avaiable later this month.

  • Early cover sketch

    February 5, 2015

    Wanted to share a progress update on the art for the cover.  Enjoy.

  • Road to the "complete" version of the book

    January 15, 2015

    I've been busy evaluating an older version of Fallen Throne that I plan to use for the release in March. However, the wealth of edits and corrections that need to be made lead me to believe the release will be closer to April than March.

    The good news is that this will allow the artist I'm working with more time to work on the cover.

    It's been exciting re-reading this version of the book, and I'm looking forward to finishing the cleanup.

  • Cover Art

    December 11, 2014

    So while the last of the Fallen Throne novellas will come out in January, I also plan to release the book as one work in March.

    I'm not an artist. Not by any stretch of the imagination. Hence the somewhat simple template covers I've been using compliments of the kindle market store.

    However, for the complete book, I am working with an actual artist to try to get something put together for the release. Something more interesting than two colors. I'll try to show some previews as work develops.

    Until next time.
