Writing

Thought I’d drop in quickly and give you an official update on Michiko Bates and the progress it stands.

Last week Tanya and I were drumming up ideas on how to spice up the Kickstarter page to draw in more visitors. One of her suggestions was to give a snippet of the work to the crowd to read.

It didn’t sound bad. Cook up one of the completed chapters, throw in the illustration for it and allow the public to get a glimpse of this project that we’ve been laboring over for a year now. I promptly agreed and got it online for backers to read over the weekend.

Today I’m sharing that link with everyone so that the general public can preview this preview work. This chapter is in both MOBI and EPUB for both kinds of readers (Kindle & iPad/Nook). You may download them from the links below.
