Well from time-to-time on this site we’ve talked about e-publishing as an alternative channel to the present set up. So: because this is very important to me, and because this is typical monkey fashion – talk ain’t enough, we need to start doing… go and have a look http://www.savethedragons.nu/
Which is a Miller and Lee style e-publishing venture.
SAVE THE DRAGONS is my own first venture into alternate publishing via a desperate need to fund my beasties stay in quarantine on their way to join us in Australia. (They are a responsibility I take seriously. But the cost is astronomical, and even with us selling up here we just can’t afford it. They were always part of our moving equation, but the exchange rate, low house prices and the huge cost of keeping them in quarantine is just crippling.) But, well, I love my animals and being me I must at least try. We don’t know if we can raise – even with what we have – enough for the project (about R150 000 – for quarantine for 7 and flights for 7… and then a month in Australia). The move pretty much means starting again from nothing, and we may have to do this in stages if we can. But I’m not known for giving up easily. I’m not much good at straight begging so I am selling what I can for them. Please go and have a look, and if you have suggestions for how we could enhance this or do better I’d be grateful.
I’d be grateful too if you mentioned it on your blogs.
Of course I’d be delighted if you decided to buy into it.
