Update from the Author

So, you may have noticed (or not) that July 15th has come and gone without much celebration on the part of the Logbook. Partially by design, and partially due to time constraints, I’m scaling back some of the site. Mostly, in the form of ending novellas (for the time being).

Though I love writing them, they’re much more time consuming and equivalent to writing books than I can afford to devote without further income. However, whilst doing one now, I’m incapable of the other.

SO, that means novellas are out for now. Books are in.

Fridays will become wildcards, like Mondays. Leaving the bulk of the content on Tues. Weds. Thurs. If that bums you out like it does me, you can buy one of my books or spread the word with Authorsmnolan.com. Only with that can I start to focus more on my work, and thus the site, in a professional capacity.

Though I intend to finish the series I’ve begun sometime in the distant future, their format and release are far too indeterminate for now. So, it is not so much so long to an era as it is see you later. Sooner or later, these characters will return and delight, thrill, or frighten again.

On the flip-side, I do intend to continue not only Short Stories, but also Vignettes and Poetry. So these three days (Tue, Wed, Thurs) are still filled. The various graphics will also eventually be altered to reflect the changes.

Beyond this, I still have other projects I intend for this site, but temporarily they are either on hiatus or delayed for the foreseeable future.

SO. AGAIN. Basically, I’m focusing on books and getting rid of serials/novellas for now. (Unless people begin to donate or support).

Much easier, right?

Now, BEHIND THE SCENES:

I’m working on a new fantasy-scifi world, fleshing it out bit-by-bit. Some of what’s posted will be canonical. Others won’t. Some stories may be subject to addition, others removal, based on what I feel best befits the world.

All of this will support other, larger works anchoring their “Worlds” via larger, lore-based events and reactions in specific timelines.

Basically what this means is, from here on, just about everything posted can or might be connected in someway. Otherwise, it will likely be obvious what is not based on setting or style.

TLDR: everything is chaos and logic has failed. Down is up. Gravity, anti. Dark, Light. Cats cleaning the dogs’ tails: whatever these omens portend, revolve the Tues, Weds, Thurs, mantra.

A Quick Raw One From The Author

Hi friends, SMN here to drop a quick update on some things.

First, I managed to get an updated version of The Omega Device put together and uploaded to Smashwords and Kindle.(available in the sidebar->) If you previously purchased my book from Kindle, it will now be consistent with the former edition. (or should update itself to be in the next day or so.)

Second, I’ll be adding an experimental thing this (or possibly, next) week. A Wednesday Vignette series meant to be more disconnected and expository. I felt I needed a catch-all for anything interesting I have/am writing to give a bit more content for you.

So keep an eye on that for WEDNESDAYS.

Last but not least, I want to say a huge thank you to new and returning readers and remind them to check out the other places I’m at. (also sidebar ->) The last couple of months has seen surges in my readership.

Normally, that kind of stuff wouldn’t mean much to people, but it does to me. So, I feel I should say again, “Thank you for everything!”

Especially nowadays, its tough to do anything creative for a living, but I know the traction I’ve seen the last couple of months means I’m headed in the right direction. So, I want you to know how much it means to me that you are all the cause of that.

Until next time,

SMN
