Apologies

Sorry, guys and dolls and whatevers (LOL...I'm a 'whatever..'). A recent flareup of my costochondritis , compounded with a pacer malfunction has delayed my writing somewhat. Hopefully, Zelanga chapter 2 will go up sometime tomorrow. Other things are also in the works.

Late Gaby

Sorry there was no Gaby Wednesday, I'm pretty much housebound atm and today is my first chance to get online and out this week.

Being ill sucks - being incapacitated when you've otherwise got a 100% clean bill of health sucks even more but them's the numbers on the dice!

So without further ado here is Chapter 30 of Book 14.

I may get on line Sunday but don't be alarmed if not.

Universe Rules Updated

Doing some administration around SEE and associated works I realized that the Universe Rules were the same as when I first posted them ages ago.

Since the main tale is now complete, and many more facts have been published since I wrote the original rules, I have completely revised them. They now mostly describe things that are self-evident but will still provide a useful guide for anyone else attempting to write in that universe.

Publishing Becoming Robin!

A few months ago, Piper approached me about publishing Becoming Robin. At first I was reluctant because I always said it would remain free, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized I could reach a much wider audience by actually having it published, so I did. :-P It's not 100% the original story in that chapter 1 uses my revision to make the introduction a little more subtle and, IMO, professional.

Bear in mind it was my first novel, so it needed some work, but the... Spirit... *ducks the rotten tomatoes* is the same.

My Brother the Bridesmaid (Children's book)

I just found a copy of this off ebay. It's a kids picture book (about third grade level) about a girl who tells how her twin brother wound up as a bridesmaid at their aunt's wedding. The kids were English, but the aunt lived in Australia. She never realized that 'Jo' was a boy and when she got married she asked the sister to be a bridesmaid. The family didn't realize that Jo was included in that invitation. In order to not ruin the wedding, Jo (who is about ten) is forced to play the girl during the ceremony (the aunt just thinks Jo is tomboyish, and never finds out the truth).

Interesting new feature on Amazon: Hide Sensitive Activity

So it just came across my twitter feed that "AMAZON IS HIDING LGBT BOOK REVIEWS!", and my knee-jerk reaction was of course, "WHAT?!"

But then I looked into it, and I think I get where Amazon is coming from on this issue. Namely: not everyone who reads LGBT fiction is "out and proud" nor do they want their Trump supporter anti-LGBT sister/cousin/parent/boss who knows their Amazon profile name, to know that they read/reviewed Tiffany and the Amazon Orgy (Just a made up name... I hope :P)

Sorry I've missed a couple of Bikes

I've had an exhausting week work wise and haven't had the energy to do much at all in the evening not finishing until 8.00pm most nights - and I'm supposed to be semi-retired. Then last night I went to bed early and woke in the night for a wee and couldn't get back to sleep for ages. consequently sleeping in this morning. However, I woke feeling much better and resolved to have the morning doing something I enjoy instead of slaving over a hot text book. I went to check the barn owl roost I know and found some more pellets.

Lady Love: A New Superheroine In The Making?

Like it often seems to happen with me, I woke up with an idea from my crazy muse who decided I should be awake, not sleeping. LOL

A young man discovers in his early teens that he should have been a girl, but being from the bayous of Louisiana, life doesn't come easy. His parents were always ready for a party, and like they had many times before, they joined several friends on an old and not very well kept twenty foot long speed boat. A really nasty storm raged through the area they were in and the boat went down with all lives lost.

A very big "Thank you"

I just wanted to publicly thank Crazy Pagan Gurl for her help in editing my short story collection.

If I can, this weekend I'm going to try and submit it to Kindle, and I'll let everybody know when it's up.

Of course, doing this also means 26 of my shorts will be taken down from this site, but don't think I don't appreciate all the comments and kudos those stories have received here.

No matter how successful this little experiment is, I will always be grateful for this place, and I'm not done contributing just yet.

The week that was

So - parcel fetched - it was a dig report from something I worked on for 6 years in the late '90's - only took the authors nearly 20 years to finish writing it up!

Fairly relaxing trip to Manchester Tuesday and finally today took delivery of the new passport, I can escape this madland now! hurrah!

And whilst waiting for the passport delivery I managed to write most of another Gaby chapter.

I think I have an idea for the kindle book

I think I have an idea for the Kindle book. It would be called "Dorothy Colleen: From A to Z" and have one story whose title begins with a different letter in the alphabet.

With the new pacemaker implanted at Christmas, and the subsequent hack to my account (If you only knew how sorry I am that such a horrendous thing happened to you, 'Dox... *weep*), I haven't been able (or really willing) to post much.

advice, please

I was having a conversation with Efdumb the other day, and he suggested I might want to put some of my stories into a collection for sale on Kindle.

Its a good idea, but I am stuck on what stories I would pick. I mean, it would probably take 10 stories to make up a decent sized book, and my stories don't tend to be connected to each other directly, so how would I select the stories?

Any ideas, anybody?

The online seriel "WORM"

A few weeks ago... or so, someone pointed me via a blog entry, to this online seriel "Worm."

Whoever this was, I have alternately thanked and cursed you. The story is VERY well written and it's also VERY graphic, pulling no punches when it comes to violence. It's compelling and seemingly never-ending. I've read myself into a stupor, trying to reach an end that never seems to come, and yet... I cannot stop reading this damned story!

I'll include a url to access the story, but if you're not a superhero story fan, you'll probably not enjoy it very much. It's also not TG.

Status Update

Ok so I thought I'd give everyone a quick status update on the whole "Tree Fiasco" from last week.

The tree is no longer on my roof, having been removed by my neighbor. He was also nice enough to put a tarp up there, over the hole. So at least I don't have to worry about doing that myself and definitely don't have to worry about paying a professional to take care of the tree. He said he'd fully do that.

The real problem now is all the damage.

Apologies & New Ideas

First of all, I'd like to apologize for not updating several of my older stories recently like Home Is Where The Heart Is, No Place To Call Home, Upside Down, Inside Out, Step By Step, Elsewhere, Otherwhen, Somehow and Stumbles Of Love. I went through a two week period where I wrote absolutely nothing, then when I did start writing again a few days ago, it was a brand new story.

It's even worse at the moment, I started a new story two days ago, took a break yesterday, and now I'm starting another new one. LOL

Well, I decided to take myself up on my challenge, and I'm working on the story right now.

No idea when it will be done, as I am splitting my writing time between this story, Mercy, and another new piece called "Help! My girlfriend is a unicorn!"

My muse is back! Yay!

The last two weeks have been odd for me as my muse apparently wandered off with no warning at all. I had been posting pieces on an average of about every 2.5 to 3 days until that point, and I expected that to continue, so when it didn't, I felt like I was lost in writer's limbo.

I haven't written anything since I posted Betrayed on February 18th, and I was beginning to be worried that my muse was gone for good.

Thankfully, she has returned, and I am about to start writing the first piece of a new story.

Ok. the question now is: What's going on? Well I'll tell you. I have the wrap up of LNP so I can send it off to Erin to get it ready for Amazon(proofing and contract). Meanwhile I have another Chrysalis Project in the works. After all that is done, I can start prep-work on my next project which will be a 'free story'. I decided that I will alternate my projects. One free to read here at BCTS, followed by a story that will go for sale on Amazon. you get the idea. LKM, CP, Road Phantoms are all free stories and only to be on BCTS. Those will stay ongoing for the most part.

Amadeus Irina and Story Thefts...

Hi All,

I appreciate your patience as I struggled with how to deal with the issue that so many of us are dealing with in terms of our stories being pirated and outright stolen.

At first, I almost decided to let them win. While I have no hope that we will be able to stop them--I also can't just let the story hang. How this will ultimately impact my writing--or better said, posting--of stories, I don't really know.

For now, though, I have every intention of completing the series--however long that may take. :)

Amadeus 18 is posted for those who are interested.

It seems that everywhere I turn there is drama. Pretty much all my family are Republicans. A couple are pretty much centralists. Even our so called new President is nothing but a drama queen. Thanks a lot for turning the Country I love into a joke Donny J. Let's be honest Donny J Trumphas to be the biggest drama queen of all. Then there is my eldest daughter. She's seven going on twenty seven, like most kids her age I guess. That kid is so much like me it scares the crap out of me. My Mom once said to me, you know Cheryl now I know that God is just.
