Magnetite is a novel with epic scope, set across seven continents & over four centuries.  I will be publishing it on from the 29th January 2016 in weekly installments, running until around September 2016.

The site is will be a beautifully designed work of hypermedia, so you could:

  • follow the story of Katrina, an Italian scientist specialising in the flight patterns of starlings
  • read about Parsad and Parvatti, a young Indian couple as they move from Bihar to Kolkatta to start a new family
  • read all the chapters set in Scotland (in the times of the Highland clearances, or a present-day cycling tour)
  • discover the links - of family, love, and friendship between the characters
  • ... or just read from start to finish.  There will be a new chapter published every Thursday, and you can even subscribe to get every new chapter in your email inbox as it arrives.

The novel is already finished (well, in a near-final draft!) so you can commit to the story, knowing that there'll always be a new chapter weekly.  With your help as a Patreon supporter, I'll be able to write additional content, and work on the richness of the links and graphics that support the novel.
$0 of $100 per month
As well as navigating by chapter, character, or place, it would be wonderful to view the whole story as it progresses over history.  This money will allow us to spend the time to develop this feature in a usable and beautiful way.
