Newsletter and other small stuff

Hey, hello, I’m on ‘va-cay-shun’ as Americans like to say so this’ll be short.

First, thanks to the valiant efforts and kind words of several Amazon reviewers, The New Job will continue… but yeah I’m late. Sue me for your free fiction! It’s been tricky to continue, despite quite a few suggestions. I think I might have to be more specific next time: don’t tell me the destination, just suggest a next step. While many of the ideas were good, many were also way too broad to be feasible. That said, a good idea is a good idea. Not signed up for the newsletter? Do so here and when I do send it, you’ll get access to an 11,000 word (and counting), er, thing.

Second, small thing. I have a DeviantArt account, like most good,,, uh… deviants. For the vast majority of the seven (!!) years it’s been active, it’s just been me collecting my usual perversions in one place. There’s art, cosplay pics, that sort of thing. However in an effort to give back I did toss the first two issues of BBSSG (AKA ‘Betty Brant as Spider-Girl’ fic) on there literally five (!!!) years ago. I’m about to start adding them gradually so there’s a repository there that isn’t behind Yahoo’s walls. In addition I posted Beneath the Veil, which is ancient, but this puts it out there. (One day I might get the energy to rewrite that thing and then maybe publish it…? But really, don’t hold your breath.)

Part of the reason I threw Beneath the Veil on DA is because on a whim I threw it on Fictionmania, and lo and behold… found a group of readers there who’d never read it. Sigh. I mean, it’s only seventeen (!!?!?) years old. Uh, guess I’m not as notorious as I thought. Anyway, that happened. (Also if you’re here and you’re like “Beneath the whatnow?” please please comment and let me know. I’m interested to know what (if anything) people have never read. I work under the assumption everyone’s read everything. Maybe I should write up a ‘checklist’ of stuff. Which will depress me in a “Why haven’t I written more?” kind of way. I digress, as I am wont to do.)

None of this changes anything really, but as a self-pub author, you’ve got to spread yourself around a bit so people can find your stuff. Ergo, this sort of thing happens.

Halloween in a week. Anyone doing anything fun, writing wise?

So, what happens next?

For those of you who are on my newsletter mailing list, you’re getting access to an ongoing story called (provisionally, I guess) The New Job.

By the way, don’t panic. It’s going to continue. More on that in the next newsletter.

But here’s my question: what the heck should happen next? I wasn’t kidding you when I said I have literally no idea what direction this thing is going in. You know what the general setup is, and you know exactly what our protagonist got their hands on at the end of the last installment.

So what happens next? Let me know in a comment or drop me an email. And make it quick! I have to write this thing soon!
