Shining Path

Sat 14 Mar 2020 by mskala Tags used: , , ,

I finished the manuscript for my first professional-grade novel in 2011, spent a few years trying to find an agent to represent it to publishers, and then shelved it as the demands of other parts of my life took priority. Now, I've posted it online at https://shiningpathbook.com/ . Please share that link widely.

It's a 100,000-word book in a genre I would describe as dark anime science fiction. Drugs, sex, religion, gangsters, catgirls.

Any chance you would be willing to distribute it as an epub?

Maybe. I'm looking into the technical aspects of how to do that.

Further to that - in principle building a EPUB is something I'd like to do, but the software wouldn't run on my machine, so I upgraded my Linux distribution and a bunch of other things broke, and now I have to fix those before I can work on the EPUB. So, it'll probably be coming eventually, but only after the yaks are shaved.

Okay, I think I've got an EPUB file built and it's linked from the "about" page on the shiningpathbook.com site. I have very little experience with these and it's possible I made some mistakes doing the conversion, but the file at least passes an online validator I found.

I pushed to my reader and flipped through quickly. Not trouble so far. Looking forward to reading it!
