Book Progress and My Writer’s Platform

Book Progress:
Done editing Part One for the billionth time. Now on to Part Two for the half-billionth time. Gearing up for the stampede into and the glorious conclusion in Part Three. Aiming for being done with everything next year with all edits *and* major revisions complete. The work before me is staggering. I’m livin’ on a prayer.

What my writer's platform looks like in late 2010

But in the future



Another Header

I was told “Papyrus” screams amateur. So I changed it, but I’m still an amateur graphic artist with no intention of being a pro. Writing is another thing.

I’m pleased with the header

After being completely dissatisfied with the look and feel of all my platform theme pictures/headers/banners and what not …I worked all morning and came up this. Perhaps, now I can begin to begin what kind of look I want.

The Blog and Platform Will Evolve

I know there’s not much traffic here, yet. That’s probably a good thing. I’m not at all pleased with the look and feel right now and I’m still a bit befuddled with the learning curve on WordPress. I’ve maintained a blog for several years elsewhere. That blog format is more user friendly by viture of not having the buffet of awesomeness that is WordPress. So, it’ll take a while for me to get this WordPress house in order to the level I want and need it to be.

I’m thinking, for now, that this blog will be the hub of my writer’s platform. It appears that reaching out from hear can be done, at least adequately, on a large scale. I hope to have a dedicated website someday. It’s still in it’s infancy here: …I may even change the url eventually.

This morning I created the Official A. R. Travis Channel on youtube: I put up an old video called: Creed of Kings Part I : The Making Of. It’s too long but not horrible. I have more videos to put up, but that’s tomorrow. All the videos so far are mainly for my amusement but they also give an idea for the setting of my book.

In the ongoing quest for making a strong writer’s platform, I created a Twitter account, a yahoo pulse, a Gravatar, Facebook Alton Ray Travis–FB won’t allow periods or I would make it A. R. Travis. I also updated an old MySpace account that needs lots of work. I’ll probably make a LiveJournal and Xanga blogs, and others, connecting them all together creating a vast matrix.

I hope someday to have a Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Lulu, Apple, and Border links sprinkled throughout my platform.
