OK, I am currently in my research and worldbuilding stage - since my setting is based on a mix of Byzantine Empire, Holy Roman Empire, Western Roman Empire and Matthias Corvinus' Hungary, there is a lot of research to be done. Plus, I still have some real-life stuff to do. So what I am planning to do is to share some pieces of my research - on military technology, organization, tactics, etc. - on blog, as well as maybe write some short military-history-related posts when I get inspiration. So, is that a good way to build up an audience? Also, my initial idea was to write a series of short stories and then publish them as a book. Should I do it, or publish them on blog, or not do it at all?
