I dunno if “Operating Parameters” really works, on review. It’s too open-ended. What’s stopping the entire thing from collapsing after all? Ach, well, they can’t all be masterworks.
End-of-month content dropping in the next two days. Which might even include the extra of a chapter or two from the new book! No promises, though.
Frank Fleming‘s setting up a free Substack for his science fiction stuff, and that’s sensible of him: when you self-publish, you gotta do your own advertising. Yay. I’m not doing a Substack, though, because I already have a Patreon and it’s pretty close to the next tier (weekly serial fiction installments).
The link is below. Please note that I am not asking for people to up their pledges: I have a $1 buy-in, because I’d rather have ten people giving me a buck a month than one person giving me ten. Also note that I’ve revamped the goals and added some different writing samples. Send the link to your friends!
Just my reminder: I have a Patreon for my SFF and horror fiction/gaming material, and 90% of it is going right back into the publishing stuff*. At this stage of the process, the more monthly income I have, the faster I can pay for editors and artists and cover art. Which means the more books I can do a year. That is the way things are.
So, tell your friends! Heck, tell your enemies if you think you can convince them to pony up. I ain’t proud.
*The other 10% goes to the St. Ann’s Center for Children, Youth, and Families; specifically, their Teen Mother-Baby Program.
