Haha! Twenty days exactly have passed since my last post here, and progress is actually happening! So, here's a quick update, and a glimpse of what's happening in our future!
If you've been following our website (and the analytics say that people are coming here, so I assume someone is), then you've noticed a lot of changes. The lore tab has been added, exploring much of the worldbuilding behind my novels that doesn't necessarily make it into the books. I've also added The Eternal Quest to this site, though it's still not accessible to the general public. In addition, there have been dozens of more minor changes around the site, tweaks to different displays, alterations to fonts, etc.
Now, I know it might be frustrating to some to have TEQ dangled there without being totally accessible, but... Please believe me, there's a reason. The first chapter, as some of you have probably noticed, is open to the general public. And, as you've probably noticed, it's kinda hard to read. In fact, that's a general comment I've received back across the entire site, and it's a problem that we're working actively to resolve. At this point, I honestly don't know what form that will take. We've been doing research on plugins to help the text flow smoother, but as of this moment, haven't been able to find anything that suits our needs fully.
So, with that said, here's our rough schedule. As you can see, we don't have solid dates set, and that's simply because we don't know how much time this will take. We want the ultimate re-launch of this site to be as incredible as possible, and if it takes a few weeks longer than expected to manage that, then so be it.
- Complete the basic design of the site. This includes getting the various pages to a readable state, improving the fundamental design, and adding content.
- Prepare the subscription for the site. As it stands right now, The Eternal Quest is only available on Patreon, where $5 a month grants complete access. For the moment, we see no reason to change that pricing. However, we plan on giving the subscription a much cooler name (such as Lead Pyramid Plus), as well as ensuring that you can actually make the purchase (right now, it's obviously not possible to purchase anywhere on here).
- Formally launch the website. Banners, fireworks, flaming torches, the works. At least in my head.
- Begin adding all my current novels to the website. These will all be available under the subscription, everything from the first Project Nomad to my brand-new releases!
Once we get all my novels up and available... We'll just have to see where things go! We have some quite exciting plans for future projects, but many of them are dependent on just how well these launches work out.
And, with that, I will draw to a close and get back to constructing this site! If you have any suggestions on how to improve things, pages you'd like to see, content that you feel is unnecessary, or just random declarations, let me know! And, as always, stay tuned for more updates!
