Each chapter of this book was written and edited using Emacs. The files for the novel were managed in a Git repository on Gitlab. Each chapter was an individual file formatted using Markdown. Information and working notes about the chapters were placed into a YAML header at the top of each chapter.
These individual chapters were combined together using a series of tools I’ve written over the years for creating EPUB, MOBI, and the print-ready PDF.
The cover was created using Inkscape. The color scheme uses eight colors of a monochromatic scale. These colors are shared among all of the Linsan novels. Likewise, the “0037-00” along the spine indicates this is the first published book (“00”) with Linsan as the main character (“0037”).
The font used on the cover and interior is Source Serif Pro in various weights and styles.
