The second chapter of The Vondish Ambassador has been posted.Â Look for a link on the Blogroll to the right.
The third chapter is paid for and will be posted on September 27th.
The fourth chapter is written, but is not paid for.
The fifth chapter is written, but is not paid for.
The sixth chapter is not yet written.
I regret to say that I’ve just been informed by Wildside Press that the ink-on-paper edition of The Spriggan Mirror won’t be out until “late October.”
My apologies for the delay, and for not letting everyone know about it sooner.
Receipts have now exceeded $500.00.
Chapter 2 will be posted on Wednesday, September 20.
Chapter 3 will be posted on Wednesday, September 27.
Chapter 4 remains to be seen.
Okay, we’re at $429.00, so Chapter 2 is paid up, and Chapter 3 is almost there, but I have a procedural question: How often should I post these updates?
Right now we’re in a sort of shakedown period — lots of enthusiasm over the launch and all that — but I expect things to slow down a lot as the novelty wears off.
So would daily updates be appropriate? Weekly? Mon-Wed-Fri?
(Of course, sometimes I’m away from my computer for a few days, so there’ll be an occasional hiatus in any case. One reason new chapters go up on Wednesdays this time is that that’s the day of the week I’m most likely to be home.)
Receipts so far: $364.00. Which means that barring disaster, Chapter 2 will be posted on Wednesday, September 20, and there’s $114.00 credited toward the next.
A very good start. Thank you.
As of now, I’ve received donations totalling $191.00.
No new chapters are fully paid for, but it’s a pretty good start, given that I only just now finished sending out the e-mails to supporters of The Spriggan Mirror, and haven’t yet made any other announcements or posted any links.
Thank you all!
So The Vondish Ambassador is begun, a couple of months later than I’d hoped; my apologies for the delay.
I’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have about it — about the story, about the payment set-up, whatever.
