FAQ

People ask me a lot of the same questions, so here are some of the more common answers:

Q: Where’s the AppCoda forum gone?

A: It’s still available – just moved to here and opens in a new tab.

Q: What is the best piece of software to use for writing?

A: Whatever you are comfortable with. The short answer. … The long answer. I use Scrivener on a Mac. It allows me to keep track of all the parts of a story easily, and it’s backed up to one place with synchronization. Everything is kept in a Project format. I used to use Word, but really, it’s not suitable for multiple pieces of work like a book. Simply put, Scrivener is brilliant.

Q: What is the best way to obtain your own book covers?

A: There are two possibilities. Get it done for you, or do it yourself. If you do it yourself, take the time to get it right. Use Photoshop, or Gimp, or one of the many Image editing packages out there. But you will need a good one, and one that saves your work as a PDF file. Yes, you heard that right. All of the publishers have templates to use, and instructions. Follow them carefully, and save yourself a bomb. It’s also fun. I strongly suspect that around 80% of “Book Cover Designers” are self-taught.

Q: Who is the best publisher for your work?

A: Again, whoever you are happy with. I use Createspace for my paperbacks, KDP for my eBooks as well as Nook, Kobo and iTunes Producer for iBooks. I use Lulu for Hardcovers.

Q: Are Crypto Currencies a Viable Option.

A: In short – Yes. Can be difficult and technical to set up. But – it can work. Have a look at the following?

The Dragons of Sara Sara - Awakening.

Innocence and terror meet in a fast-paced evocation of a time far in the future. Set among momentous happenings, Robert Chalmers catches a society on the brink of a new age.
In an age far ahead in time, two young people from very different walks of life find themselves thrown together in a battle to save the world from darkness. The Lord of Darkness is stirring and the forces of light are awakened. The two are inextricably linked when they forge a pact to fight together for the good of all.
As the young friends grow and mature a new role emerges for each, as they gather forces about themselves ahead of the storm.
'Every separate voice is perfectly judged, reverberating in the mind's ear and leaving a tense echo as the battle looms’
