chapter 16 blog
As you may or may not have noticed I have been cleaning up the site a little bit, making some minor changes and such. I'm still sort of tweaking it, so you might see some stuff getting reworded or moving around. I'm just generally trying to get it to look a little nicer - especially now that I'm starting to get some traffic on here.
I know that the big issue I need to be tackling is obviously getting my portfolio site back online with all my samples. getting a job was a lot easier when I could just link that to perspective employers. It's coming along, it really is. I'm still trying to round out a nice collection of genre samples and get editing done and all the normal stuff. The more I get done, the more like it feels like there is to do.
I am going to make a couple small design compromises for the time being - putting some ideas on hold that while amazing from an aesthetic standpoint, won't really affect the functionality of the site. That is really, really hard for me to do but I'm getting pretty desperate to get this site launch done.
It's one of about a thousand things that I'm working on right now, but I will do my best to make some progress and keep you updated.
The erotic Halloween Microfiction I've been telling you guys about that got accepted got published today. It is called Touring Moreau and it can be found here: Halloween Microfiction: Touring Moreau
I definitely don't think it's my strongest piece of erotica, but incorporated all of the elements that were given while still making the word count qualifications - so I'm going to call it a success,
You guys should also check out some of the other amazing work from Circlet Press, because if you are a geek who likes erotica, they have some stuff that will probably be right up your alley. (They also have really great LGBTQ+ representation in both writers and characters - so it's a great place to support.)
Thank you everyone for reading the blog and potentially also the microfiction. I will hopefully be seeing you all again soon.
I just heard back from Circlet Press about the flash fiction piece I wrote for them, and it is on the schedule to be published on the 19th. I will be sure to put a link up here on my blog when it goes up.
In the meantime I've got lots of writing to do to keep up with my submission schedule for the month. Also, since there is going to be a link included to this site when my story goes up, now might not be the worst time to clean this up a bit, which I've been saying for awhile now that I'm going to do.
Really great news, everyone!
I was accepted into The 2016 Writing.Com Anthology - which I am very excited about.
For those of you who don't know, Writing.Com is a wonderful online community for writers. It's a really good place to get feedback, support and they have a ton of writing resources. The basic membership is free and if you haven't checked it out yet, you should. Even if you're more of a reader than a writer, it's worth joining just for all the amazing work that's been posted.
The anthology features some highlights from the site, including both short stories and poetry. I am very honored to be a part of it this year.
Copies are available for preorder here.
I don't know which story I'm having featured, but I'll be sure to share that information with you when I get it - and I'll include links to it so that if anyone's interested they don't have to buy the anthology.
If anyone is interested in the anthology however, I definitely want to encourage that. I personally won't be making any money from sales, but every copy sold goes to support not only the wonderful project and the press that's publishing it - but it also promotes some of the wonderful writers who have been included. Some of them are my personal friends, and all of them are very talented.
Some of you have been asking me if I have anything available for sale - and now I can finally say yes. For a limited time this book is a physical thing that you can order where you will get to see my name in print.
Thank you so much for reading and for the support - you guys are awesome!
I just got some really cool news, I've had a piece accepted into an erotic Halloween flash fiction event. I don't have all the details yet, but I'll be sure to let you guys know more when I do.
That's a pretty uplifting way to start a month of very hard work!
