2007-03-25 [Fizban]: I never export mine lol..and now I have a good excuse...
2007-03-25 [Paul Doyle]: Well, exporting the wiki is part of my platform to (hopefully) sell this book and its forthcoming series (there will be five novels, in a grand epic). Also, I think this ability to be not logged in and comment is part of [Hedda]'s central strategy to bring in more people to Elftown, which is a very good thing. Of course, with enhanced features there's bound to be problems along the way. so I reported this on the ET Bugs forum, leaving those stupid porn-site links up so maybe something could be done to keep those spammers away from any part of ET.
2007-03-25 [nokaredes]: ...they're not up anymore...
2007-12-14 [Hendercrazy]: Congrats on your achievements thus far Paul! Keep it up! :) - Derek
2007-12-14 [Paul Doyle]: Thank you :) I honestly need to get my butt in gear once the holidays are over (and maybe even sooner). It's true that real-life things have priority, and I think I did the right thing by shelving all of this stuff temporarily when my family needed me the most---but I can't let this go for too much longer.
I very much support the idea of having one's feet on the ground and one's head in the clouds at the same time. I constantly, consistently try to be this way. But sometimes this twinned ambition can take its toll, and I guess I needed a chiropractor there for a while. Stretching to the clouds while keeping your feet on the ground can cause lower back pain and other discomfort, after all. :p
2007-12-14 [Hendercrazy]: Yes. :P The art of balance is definitely a tough thing my friend. :)
2008-07-10 [Paul Doyle]: Currently re-reading a second copy of this novel (printed out about ten days ago) and re-learning the finer details so I'm that much more knowledgeable when I am talking to agents/publish
2009-02-15 [Paul Doyle]: All right, the unsolicited-qu
2009-02-17 [Hendercrazy]: Have you ever thought about self-publishin
2009-02-17 [Paul Doyle]: I have, but in too many instances self-publishin
Between subsidy publishing (which is only good if you are a college professor and you have a buit in audience---you
If worse comes to worse and I absolutely cannot get this stuff sold the old-fashioned way, then I'll consider the alternatives (including online publishing, which I absolutely do not want to do). I don't give up to easily, unless logic and reality says otherwise.
2009-02-18 [Hendercrazy]: You just have to get really extremely creative, advertise and slowly build a fan following. There are places that offer POD (print on demand) and you can sell your book in their online store; so there's no overhead/inven
2009-02-18 [Paul Doyle]: That is good advice! Thank you. :-D
2009-03-18 [organicparadox]: meticulous nature pays off when it comes to documentation. that's a big accomplishment man, grats
2009-03-21 [Paul Doyle]: Thank you . . . now if only I could have less real-life worries to contend with (not the usual worries, but stuff like bill collectors, Kathy's unemployment killing us in the wallet, my not succeeding at landing a secondary job at work, shutoff notices and threats of eviction/repos
2010-03-06 [Paul Doyle]: The bottom pictures were uploaded through this page, merely as a convenience, but are still relavant since they are sketch ideas for possible future illustrations.
2010-03-06 [Paul Doyle]: . . . and, in regards to the 21 March 2009 entry: fuck this bullshit (much of which is still happening), full speed ahead!
2010-05-01 [Hendercrazy]: Keep at it Paul! :)
2010-05-02 [Paul Doyle]: Getting onto Chapter 3, Page 67 overall, here in a few minutes. I really ought to revamp this entire wiki, as well as make an equivalent on Facebook, until I do in fact open my own website. Earlier I took a few related photos, so as much as I question the usefulness of Elftown (given the decline in artistic members and so forth) I really ought to update here, as well.
2011-07-17 [Mortified Penguin]: When can I expect to receive my signed copy of Book One?
2011-07-17 [Paul Doyle]: Patience, Padawaan . .. (Page 346 of Book Two now, though I've been on a minor hiatus of late due to it being summer, and also because of real-life concerns)
