‘Tis done!

Published September 27, 2014 by Iphis of Scyros

I’ve now officially taken the leap and self-published (half of) my first novel!

It’s kind of scary, y’know?

What if everyone who buys it hates it?

What if no one even buys it?

Et cetera….

My book covers the Trojan War from the marriage of Peleus and Thetis up until, well, for the half that’s out, it goes up to Achilles vowing to take vengeance on Hector for the death of Patroclos.  Book II will take it all the way up to the victorious Greek army preparing to sail away again.

That much is totally normal, nothing to worry about.

What worries me is that it’s written in sort of an experimental style.  Every chapter is in the first person, narrated by a different character.  Consequently, there’s a lot of inconsistency in the narrative style.  Some of them feel–to me, at least–much better than others.  That’s why I’ve been hoping for some reader feedback on LeanPub to improve any chapters that aren’t as good as the others.  (Hopefully I won’t be informed that none of them are any good…)

If only I knew how long it’s likely to take for anyone to potentially buy a copy!  But LeanPub doesn’t have very much fiction, so I don’t know what the general sales levels on fiction on the whole is…

Urgh…gotta stop worrying about this.

Anyway…I may as well self-advertise while I’m moaning, right?


I wasn’t sure what to do about the price, so I left it at their suggested default of minimum $0.99, and “suggested” $4.99.  I probably should have reduced the suggested.  Yeah, I think I’ll go do that.  Since it’s a work in progress, and only half a novel and all…
