You get two chapters of A Servant of Wisdom this week. Enjoy it while you can. I am enjoying the story, though, and may be able to do two chapters a week while still keeping the quality up. We'll see.
A reader made a purchace in my bookstore. Yes! My sales virginity has been broken! Feel free to join in the orgy!
And so, a short chapter finishes up my first male/male romance. Well, male/male/female, but who's judging. The story may continue later, but this is a good pausing point. Feel free to write if you disagree.
I took the time to change some things on the site. The two Magic stories are now in the Bells Across the Universe menu, as they do finish up that saga. This frees up lots of room up there on the top of the page.
I'm four pages into the next story. You'll see it when you see it.
Hello. Well, first things first, I've gone in and deleted old blog pages. There's no need for those things to keep updating when I change the site. Only the important ones have been kept.
Some of you may have noticed there's a bookstore link up next to the Blog link in the site menu. It has yet to have a customer. I'm not surprised, but… well, I could use the income. I'm not starving, but my car is 12 years old and I could use a new (or newer) one before the next winter. So, I've made some changes. With luck you, my readers, will like them.
In the store, you will now find an item labeled "Ebook Subscription". …
It took two chapers instead of one, but The Magic of Bells is over. There are things I'm not thrilled about, but it ended where it was suppose to, and I am happy with much of it. Maybe it will get a rewrite later, maybe not.
I'm going to have to think about how to arrange the site, now that I've, yet again, merged two series. I may just toss the Magic of Life story under the Bells Across the Universe heading. We'll see.
Oh, and you get a new chapter of Where Friendship Leads!
Well, the first thing you'll notice is there's now a handy dandy contact form in the sidebar her in the blog. With luck, that will get a few more replies out of you people. It will, as well, probably cause all the blog pages to pop up again on the ASSTR New Uploads pages, but by now I'm sure all of you know how useless that feature of the site is. I'm tempted to delete many of the old blog pages, just to be nice, but for now I'm leaving them.
Both of the current stories recieved updates today. Editor Scifi Nut has a new habit of taking his time with the first thing I send him, waiting until I send him a second chapter, and giving me both by the end of that day. …
OK, here's the background. Over on Storiesonline, there was yet another thread in the google forum about the state of the site. Most of the stories were happy romances, partly because other tales, particularly gay male/male ones, would get bombed with scores of 1 to bring the ratings down. A new scoring system, now implemented, was hoped to ease that problem by dropping the top and bottom 5% of the votes, getting rid of the outlighers.
Looking over my tales, I knew I had skirted around the whole gay issue. I had gay characters, but anything that happened did so off screen. The gay relationship I set up in the second chapter of The Bells of Tanah never came to anything, as I decided to make it more of a quirk of Justin's personality once all the relationships became settled. …
