I'm up to chapter 9 and it's a really good read! Will be recommending it!

On a technical note, when I downloaded the epub, it downloaded with a .txt suffix. Once I renamed the file to remove the .txt and replace it with .epub, all was well.

That's odd. No idea why it would do that. The file in the server definitely has an epub suffix.

Thanks for the kind words.-)

I am up to Chapter 17. It is a good read and have you started a sequel to it yet? :number1:

Yep, from what I've read so far it's begging to be made into sequels along the lines of Asimov’s Foundation and Arthur C. Clarke's Rama. I don't think I'm over doing it by those comparisons either!

Good grief! Give me a moment while the swelling in my head goes down . . .

. . . okay. One of the possibilities in releasing something cc-by-sa is that someone might take it and create a spin on it. Maybe a sequel will come about that way. There are also places in the original story that could be 'filled in.' Chapters could be added, for instance. That is one of the things I'm hoping to explore with this experiment.

In the meantime, this is a lot of fun.-)

Good work, BTW. Authorship is never easy, and you always feel pretty exposed once it is out there. I have a book in production right now, and find it hard not to get seriously annoyed/irritated when reviewers don't understand or appreciate me...

:frustrated:

EDIT: I just looked at your site, and see that it is very well done for mobile. But I only see two blog posts and no download link


I just caught your edit. Formatting for mobile is done automatically, by a Wordpress plugin if I remember correctly. I'm glad to hear that it comes out nicely.

As for blog posts, I'm not that garrulous, as members of this forum are aware.-) It wasn't my intention to become a blogger, only to have a place for the story to live on the Internet. Actually, I'm kind of hoping there will be some comments to respond to. That might stimulate more posts.

Are you saying there's no download link in the mobile version of the page? I don't have a smart phone or a tablet, so I have no idea.

Thank you for pointing it out.
