Update on Issue IV

It’s been a while since I’ve made any posts. I’ve been busy writing articles and working to earn a crust.

I’m relieved to say the final article has been written and sent off for edit. Once that’s finalised, the compilation forms the magazine.

So far the magazine has been free and posting it has been rather simple. This time it won’t be free and posting it has got me stumped. WordPress is expensive, I don’t have $1200 in pocket change to splurge because they feel they need 1 year payment in advance and the plugin needed to sell on the blog. Amazon staff are offshore, they copy/paste pre written script, so it’s like talking to a recording. I know little about eBay, but it seems like it’s the last place to try.

If I knew for a certainty I would get as many purchases as I did downloads on the previous issues then I would make the investment with WordPress. Unfortunately, I don’t know and I am just as poor as the next bloke so I can’t risk it.

The price will be only US$5.00, cheap as chips considering how much work goes into it. If all goes well  I can quit my day job and do this full time, I won’t be as stressed and drained as I am. On the flip side my back is further degenerating, and it’s getting harder and harder to push the plane. Nonetheless, I’m still soldiering on and will continue to work the craft the only way I know how with my hands. There is nothing sweeter and more soul satisfying/gratifying than when you build something by hand.

  1. Why not publish the table of contents and ask for pre-sales? It would be a guide to interest.

    Hope you can make this work, you’ve been doing great work.


    1. Because with 3 Issue releases people know generally what to expect and every release the downloads would go through the roof. Besides that most people have said they are willing to pay for it, but still time will tell.


  2. I enjoyed the first 3 issues very much! I all buy it if you take PayPal as well. Would you consider taking pre-orders? This will help gauge interest and help with cashflow.
