Now that I'm digging into the text again, red pen in hand, I've re-read the Preface, and I wonder if perhaps that "chapter" would not serve better in place of the "one sheet" that is presently linked to the "Start Here" link on the front page.Mark Culpepper wrote:And though it is really none of my business , while I am at it I just have to log being just a tad uncomfortable with the phrase...................
"Defying Gravity is a biographical mystery that ponders the question “how come nobody has ever heard of T. Townsend Brown?”
Now, after you have finished the book with such a wonderful style, would you mind reading that section above again? Is that really the style that you want to use to introduce your wonderful work?
I could also link it to the "Yes Virginia..." page that now shows up instead of the chapters (with a link at the end right back to... "Yes, Virginia...<g>).
I trust you all have (or will soon have) your own copies of the chapters, so I'm curious what you think of the Preface. Does it work for you? Does it draw you in, make you want to know more? Does it serve to adequately set up the whole "Rabbit Hole" metaphor.
I've got an idea: why not print out just the Preface and show it to a few friends over the weekend? See if they put it down wanting to know more. I'm going to a barbecue Saturday night... I think I'll take my own advice.
