As I said, the main purpose of this blog is to have a place to post about my writing projects. Currently, my main project is a novel called “Half Past Midnight”. The title is a reference to the Doomsday Clock, created by the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists in 1947 during the Cold War. It’s a post-apocalyptic novel set shortly after a nuclear war that destroys much of modern civilization as we know it. The draft is done, and it’s currently out to a couple of beta readers. After that, I need to decide whether or not I can afford an editor. The next step would be publishing it as an e-book.
Of course, another possibility would be to publish the e-book first, dedicating my efforts into marketing and sales, then use proceeds to pay for an editor & republish a refined product after the editor is done with it.
Actually, that might be a viable model. I could publish new books initially for 99 cents, then increase the price on the post edit version to the standard $2.99 that most e-books go for. It’s something to consider anyway.
In the meantime, I’m also working on recording it as a podcast novel with the intent being to publish it through Podiobooks.com.
