Crowdsourcing 101

I did this near the end of 2013 for a novel onĀ Indiegogo. I’ll talk more about that novel in another post. I’ll have to do it again at some point. I didn’t achieve my full funding goal then… in part because many people didn’t really understand what I was trying to do, so I’ll attempt […]

Long Time Away for Me

I was away writing (of course) but didn’t have a lot happen, full disclosure… My novel funding didn’t go as far as I would have liked. It was a big learning experience however, and I’ll still finish it… I’m still trying to finish my novel for those who funded though. Of course, profits from others […]

I’ve Talked the Talk, Now I’m Walking the Walk

Outline Plans

For my series (at least for the first 3 books) I plan to use Joseph Campbell‘s Hero’s Journey (actually the entire series arc will use much of it)   I’ll use another plot form to shape the storyline too: the structure used for the original Star Wars trilogy in the late 70s through the early […]
