It’s been a little bit since I’ve done a true news post on the site, but I have lots I’d love feedback on and/or things to share. Without further ado, let’s get newsing.
First off, I know a while back I stopped doing fiction directly posted on this blog. This was largely due to the fact that said posts barely generated traffic for me. Combine this with the fact that my short story prompts got next to no involvement from anyone that wasn’t me or my immediate friend circle — and the fact that I had zero free time at that point — and it made sense to stop posting fiction here. Over the course of the next few months, however, I’ll be moving all of my work from Wattpad and Neovel back over to the blog. I’ll be starting with completed stories during the month of August. This means that the schedule will look something like this.
- August: Fostoria, Project Tasman
- September: Whatever’s left in Project Tasman
- October: Meeting Charlie Madagan
I’m thinking that for Project Tasman and Meeting Charlie Madagan, I’ll post backlog story chapters roughly every two days. This should put me really close to the end of August in the case of Project Tasman, though some of that might bleed into September. I’m going to hold off on putting any chapters of Meeting Charlie Madagan up here until October for various reasons, nearly all of which are for throttling the speed at which I work on my own projects in the coming months. In the event you would like to see me restart my prompt posts, I’d love to hear from you in the comments.
Second, eagle-eyed readers of this site might have noticed a new Merch page go up this weekend. There’s currently nothing there at the moment. I will be adding links to buy my books, as well as a few other items I have planned, to that page in the coming months. That said, I’d love to hear what else, if anything, you’d like to see as merch. I am not a particularly creative sales and marketing person, so this is well outside of my wheelhouse.
Next, in the event you haven’t noticed the new banner at the top of my site, you can now sign up for my mailing list. If you want to be the first to be notified of new projects I have in the works, receive updates and sneak peeks as to my writing, and mayyyyyybe get early access to that aforementioned merch, enter your info in the bar at the top of the page.
Finally, there’ll likely be some additional cosmetic updates around the site as I work to integrate my forms I’ve used for various things into a single, consolidated platform. I’ve already been doing some of this on the backend over the course of the past few months, but it’ll be more evident on the front end, particularly for those of you looking to book some of my services. If you’re just a blog reader, this won’t have (much of) an impact on you aside from the bar at the top of the page.
I think that’s everything? Be on the lookout for fiction posts starting with Fostoria going up on August 1st.
