A very late post, but the 18th Annual IFComp voting ends today. Once again, I’ve missed the opportunity to enter a game into the competition (something that I’ve wanted to do since around 2001 when a friend and I started writing it).

From the official site:

For the last seventeen years, the readers of the Usenet newsgroup rec.arts.int-fiction have held a yearly interactive fiction competition. For fans of the old Infocom games as well as for newcomers to the genre, the competition is a chance to enjoy some of the best short adventure games available anywhere.

Maybe next year.

E-Book Formatting for Novelists

Posted: 15 November 2012 in News

I just discovered on Amazon that K.C. May, author of Venom of Vipers and The Kinshield Saga, has released a free Kindle book on how to format e-books. The process is a bit cumbersome, but her book is helpful in getting first-timers through the process. The only drawback is that it’s for Windows users only, but many of the programs referenced are in fact available for Mac (or a suitable alternative is available).
