For only 2.99 on Kindle, (or as part of the 5.00/mo reward on Patreon) you can own the second year’s short-stories and poems in Ebook format, headed by a special foreword from yours truly.
As always, thank you for everything this past year, and don’t forget to mark your calendar! Or, if you just can’t wait, pick up a copy of The Omega Device or Volume 1to hold you over!
Well, Crew, it’s finally done. The Logbook Archives: Volume 1 is currently on its way to you via the internet’s fantabulous conglomeration of interconnected, intergalactic pipes. On November 23rd, 2016, the first edition of the new, yearly archive of The Logbook will release. For only 2.99 on the Kindle store (or as part of the 5.00/mo contribution reward on Patreon) you can own (or pre-order) the first year’s collection of short-stories and poems in their new format. Over a hundred short stories and poems, in Ebook style, complete with a table of contents, themed headings, and a special foreword by yours truly.
But wait, there’s more!
With “LBAV1’s” completion, I can begin focusing on the Ebook formatting of the first year’s Novellas and the cover design, as well as my next, full-length novel release. But here’s the cool thing; the novella Ebook collection will be completely free! Also, “LBAV1’s” proceeds will go toward first upgrading, then maintaining, this site before it is put to other uses.
It’s been a long year of learning experiences, Crew. It’s taken longer than I’d have liked to get this stuff to you, but I know what I’m doing now, so it will take less time in the future. You’ve all been very patient and I’m extremely grateful for that.
So, thank you for everything so far, and don’t forget to mark the calendar! Alternately, visit Kindleor Patreon to keep abreast of any news you might otherwise miss. Or, if you just can’t wait ’til release, pick up a copy of The Omega Device to hold you over!
So, The Omega Device has been out a while, (if you haven’t yet, go buy it) and as promised, I’ve been hard at work on the first volume of The Logbook Archives. Above is the cover. It’s nothing too special, but I’m proud of it. A lot of respect has to go to Justin Callaghan for his excellent Space Age font that also graces this site’s logo. Mad props to him for his awesome work.
What is The Logbook Archives, and why Volume 1?
The Logbook Archives is the section of my site that I archive all of my works in. Essentially, this is the same thing in eBook format and with a special foreword written by yours truly. The book is also divided into sections with each one headed by a theme. I’ve decided, as is somewhat indicated by the cover, to make this an annual release after July of every year. (It has been a while since July, but I’ve been busy. Next year’s will probably come quicker.) “Volume 1” is self-explanatory then. It’s the first year. (And what a year it was!)
What’s in it?
Every short story and poem posted from July of 2015 to July of 2016. This does not include novellas however, they are much too long. As it stands the book’s manuscript in my word processor is already 350+ pages. The novellas will be released, but separately from this eBook and with their own covers. That is next on my list.
Why an eBook?
Simply, I know it is difficult to read a website sometimes. Either due to connection issues or the simple lack of wanting to read the format for extended periods. This is my solution to that, though I wouldn’t advise replacing visiting the site with reading the eBook since they come so far apart. This is your chance then, to take the Logbook with wherever you go, net or not, and in the process, help support it!
So when’s it coming?
I’m not entirely certain yet, but within the next month or so. There is still formatting to be done, and other decisions to be made. Rest assured though, it is coming, and it will be soon. I will announce a solid date ASAP.
In conclusion, I want to say a big thank you to everyone! You’ve made this last year so exciting and wonderful and I wouldn’t be where I am without you. If you like my site and don’t want to see it go away, buy my book, contribute to my patreon, or spread the word via blogs, Twitter, Facebook, or otherwise. I greatly appreciate all of you, and would hate to have to pack it in for fear of starvation. That said, I’ll probably be here until I drop from it, but I’d like to avoid it as long as possible. Also if you haven’t yet, you may follow and/or like my pages on Twitter, Facebook, or Google+.
And stay tuned for a bonus poem coming later today!
