So, it’s been a while since I’ve said anything directly to you, my dear readers. I tend to want my work to speak for itself and don’t have much to say otherwise anyhow. Today though, I thought I’d update everyone.
As promised, each week I’ve been posting new stories, poems, or chapters of novellas and the like. For now this will stay the same. I’ve been toying with the notion of adding another day of content, but I haven’t quite worked that out yet. Rest assured that I’m still working many hours every day to keep the content coming. As you may have noticed, there’s quite a wide variety as far as genres go. While I consider myself primarily a sci-fi author, I’m no stranger to working outside that genre. (Or even outside definable monikers altogether)
So, what’s this really about? Anything special to talk about? Or just more mindless ravings from the innards of madman? Little bit of both actually. I’d like to first say thank you to everyone that has read, continues to read, or is discovering my work for the first time. I love that the internet’s given all of us a place to share these things, and the power to do what we love. While I do intend to do more with other forms of work in the future, (Ie, Novels, traditional and/or self-publishing, etc) there will always be a commitment to this site.
On that note, I would like to say that I’m working on bringing purchasable, ebook formats of certain works to the digital marketplaces. It will take some time, but keep an eye out for forthcoming details. You might be thinking; Oh, but it’s free here, why would I pay for it then? Well simply, we’ve all got to eat. Even immortals like myself– though I generally prefer the hearts of vanquished foes.
Whatever is eventually compiled and up for purchase will remain free on the site, but e-books/sales will allow people that format, which is slightly more accessible and easy to read. Apart from eventually helping me upgrade the site to a real, paid version, this will also help me avoid bread-lines somewhat, if not entirely. (I mean, they’re so damned long nowadays!) There may also be some kind of crowd-funding venture in the future, but again, I’ll keep everyone updated if/when that happens.
So there’s the thing no-one really likes to talk about, but that I kinda’ have to broach. I’m not deluded to think I’ll end up with some crazy cash-flow or pile of gold, but I’d like to be able to provide the aforementioned, and unfortunately, can’t do it without at least some avenue of funding behind it.
Phew! Okay, that wasn’t so awful, was it? (I would like to reiterate: No-one should feel obligated to commit funds– or maybe they should, you know, if they’re the guilty type. In that case, shut up and give me money!)
Anywho, tomorrow’s another short story as usual for Tuesdays and there may be a bonus story this week, but I’m not certain yet. So thanks for reading, and don’t forget to keep an eye out for more updates. I’ll give more info when it’s relevant. For now, enjoy what’s here and what’s to come, and thanks for reading!
