2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

My NaNoWriMo Book (The Eldermaid) is Out!
« on: January 05, 2015, 12:01:37 pm »
Hello friends,

Sorry I haven't been around much. My family's been dealing with some major health issues and I've been trying to focus on my writing (which is hard because my eyes still suck), but I FINALLY published my NaNoWriMo novel via CreateSpace and on Kindle (it's only been three years).

I describe it as "coming-of-age tale about friendship, political wrangling, religion, absent deities, strange spirit companions, and badass queer ladies."

Congrats! Your book sounds awesome!

There's going to be a bit of a delay unfortunately because I needed to change one thing and Amazon is like "Now you have to start the review process over," which is a pain in the ass.

So it might take a couple days for me to fix everything.

OMG I so totally hear you. Getting things with my book into the best shape possible for CreateSpace was, shall we say, a challenge. (Esp. when UPS kept botching the delivery dates for the proofs!)

Congrats, Lokabrenna, and I'll be picking this up to check it out.
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

Congratulations! It looks really interesting.

I just downloaded the sample so I'll remember to buy the ebook after payday.   But I have to finish Altair's book before I start this one.  ;-)

I'm just replying to this to say that my book is back up and it's hopefully going to stay that way until I notice something else that's wrong with it. (Next book I am hiring a team of proofreaders cause I can't deal with this crap.)

You and me both. There are at least 2 incredibly minor errors that slipped through in my book (and I proofread professionally!), but they bug the shit out of me.

I just bought The Eldermaid for my Kindle app on my iPhone. I have to finish Morag's Bellica first, but then you're next.

Thanks for reminding me about Bellica! I'd intended to buy that one when I could, but forgot. Just bought it along with The Eldermaid.

So now I have 3 TC books to read. :-D I'm a little more that halfway through Songs of the Metamythos and loving it!
