I've been asked to post some of my prep/PAW fiction here and would like to know where to post it, or to post it all.

If I can, is there any way to up the character count in the posts to significantly more than 10,000 characters. 10,000 characters (1,500 words) is only about three pages. My stories run from about double that to 750,000 characters (120,000 words), about 250 pages.

60,000 characters allows me to post about 20 pages per post. Even 30,000 will allow me to post 10 pages at a time.

Wasn't me specifically but I would sure like to see him post his works here. They are certainly well written.

Jerry, I have been a fan of yours for awhile. Can you save them into a doc or pdf file, so they can be put into the downloads area? I am not sure of your capabilities.

I can do that, (I think) if that is what needs to be done.

I'm up for some fiction, hopefully you can get it in one downloadable file rather than 25 separate posts. I have done that before and am not looking forward to the thought of it! I don't believe I've read your stuff before and have been looking for some new stories. If you need help we might be able to assist you. Thanks for the offer.

I know over at SB that you break it into several posts, but we have a downloads section here, and we already have a Stories section there. It is just to keep it available for all without going through the forum.

Like Koa said, we will certainly assist you with whatever is needed.

Jerry, if you need any advise or help converting docs to pdf let me know. I have lots of experience.:)

Cool! I've read all of your stories except the newest 2 or 3. You sure are prolific! :)
Just read "Team Two" yesterday.

I think my favorite is the first one I read. The name is on the tip of my tongue.. "Dominic...Santini" maybe?
It starts out with the protagonist being pursued and he digs up a cache, takes care of business then makes his way to his retreat.

Now,If I could just get you to trade in those outdated, underpowered PPKs for
Kahr PM9s :)

Okay. Thanks. I have a .doc to .pdf converter that seems to work all right. I'll know tomorrow.
