The latest part of Psyren's Redemption is up! In this installment, Sapphira finally gets an upgrade to that promised meal, but the price has him second guessing the whole thing.

Egads!

This was originally posted on my website, but I felt I should share it here as well.

Apologies, for my absence over the last three weeks. December was a difficult and frankly odd month for me at least where the real world is concerned. I’m back and thankfully, most of the drama that was keeping me away has now died down. I’ll resume posting next week, but until then please accept my deepest apologies.

Have a delightfully demented day,

Daniel A. Wolfe (you know that D.A.W. guy)

Yes, it's me again, begging for help. Please read!

So here we are, at the middle, well almost the middle, of December and once again I'm appealing to all of you to open your hearts and wallets (purses) to help pay some of the bills that Top Shelf generates.

I've been taken to task for my admittedly flowery language when pleading for monetary assistance to help keep the site somewhat solvent and I won't apologize for the language I use, nor for the endless appeals. The way I write is the way I write.

Psyren's Redemption backstory reveal

We get to find out a little more about Sapphira's (Everett's) backstory and a bit of a bonding moment between Amelia and the other Exemplar.

Confused

OK, I'm confused. The front page seems to have undergone a major reformatting? Is this intentional? Or is it some sort of glitch.

It's extremely (IMNSHO) more difficult to find the content you want. And the sidebar listing of blog postings is gone, but not the comments. I much prefer the recent blog post in the sidebar.

Hi everybody,

I just got a laptop with Win10 install..!

Weekly serial (double length)

Sorry, I'm a little late getting this up, but the latest part of Psyren's Redemption is up now. For the forseeable future I may have to go with a more irregular schedule for story posting as the Tuesday postings have gotten a lot harder as of late.

This time around it is about double the usual length. Plus, it's a shower scene so things do get a bit hot, in more than one sense of the word.

TG Consortium + Psyren's redemption = 2 for 1 update

Word math, don't you love it?

First and foremost, I'd like to announce the launch of yet another website, the TG Consortium Forums. As near as I can tell, within the tg community there is or has never been anything quite like the consortium. What is it, you might ask, it's a place where tg content creators (writers, comic artists, etc) can gather about bounce ideas around or even critique one another's works.

Halloween story on my website

Read the story today!

I thought I'd take a break from our regularly scheduled programing and do something a little special for Halloween. Yesterday, I rewrote 'Devil's Due' one of my old Mixed Tape Entries. It's more than double the length of the original and best of all the new version is now considered part of the official canon for my meridian-verse.

Psyren's Redemption serial baddie on a rampage

The latest part is up!

It seems that Sapphira will be having a difficult time defeating this new menace.

For those of you who have been following, comments are really appreciated as they help encourage me to continue.

Top Shelf needs YOUR help! PLEASE READ!

The site and Erin really need your help. I just sent in 25 bucks and will probably send a few more after my own bills are paid for this month.

While Erin and the site really appreciate all the help many of you have given in the past, but things are not getting better financially. Erin has driven herself into debt so far that there seems to be no way out. The site needs a LOT of money to give us this wonderful resource and repository for our stories and blogs.

Psyren's Redemption serial (New villain intro)

Psyren's Redemption Chapter Eleven Part Two is up

A new villain is introduced in this part. He's not exactly much of a thinker this one, but wherever he goes a whole bunch of trouble is sure to follow.

Please take a minute to leave a comment. It really helps motivate me to continue!

Psyren's Redemption serial (name reveal)

Weekly superhero Psyren's Redemption newest part up

The latest part is up.

In this one Everett Howard, urged by Agent van den Broeke, chooses a new name. I was a bit of a tease this time around as his new moniker isn't actually spoken or mentioned in this part of the story. That being said there are enough clues to figure out what it is.

As always, I strongly encourage that people leave a comment. It really helps encourage me and motivate me to continue! Perhaps, you could make your guess as to what Everett's new name might be.

11th Sun Book Cover

Taking a break from the comic book to work on the book cover. It's the scene on Logan's Fun where 11 is getting off the elevator and seeing the inside of the station for the fist time. From the worm eye you can see her in her dress, as she looks at the atrium in the station for the first time.

I'm going for a juxtaposition between the mundane (girl in sun dress) and the fantastic (space station). Should look pretty fucking cool.

Outlining Your Novel Workbook Software

I ran across this piece of Software last night, courtesy of Leila, and found it to be an invaluable tool towards making an author THINK about their work as they are designing it. This way, you make fewer mistakes and have more room to correct your initial start on the work before you ever get around to posting it.

It is called Outlining Your Novel Workbook by K.M. Weiland.

Extreme frustration is setting in rapidly!

I ordered some underwear from an online site. Please don't take me to task for that, okay? The package arrived after many days and all was as ordered...except.

Their ad stated that their bras run small and they advise people who order them, to order them two full strap/band sizes larger than they usually wear, a good thing as it turns out.

Disasters and their frequency

I'm having a rush of senior moments or the rest of the world is.

I am scheduled to move to my new address, (about seven miles away) tomorrow and Virgin, my internet broadband supplier phoned on Friday to tell me they can't reconnect me on Wednesday as promised. (They have problems with their cables and junction boxes, as if I care,) and will have to dig up the road so I won't be back on line for 12 to 15 weeks!

So it's goodbye Virgin and I've signed up with a company that heads the 'Which' internet provider list and they have scheduled me for 12 working days.

I lost several email addresses for various reasons. One reason was, they had possibles security breach, and to get back in they send you a link to an alternate email My problem was that the alternate one has the same problem, and they point to each other, so I can't recover them. Doh!

Also, I've decided to embrace the social media capabilities of wordpress so you can follow me on twitter, tumblr, facebook or google+ and get updates anytime something new pops onto my site.

New weekly serial part up on my website

Hey, boys and girls! It's that time again, the next part of my serial Psyren's Redemption, is up on my website.

Please, head on over and give it a read!

I've also created a forum, which I thought would be a fun little casual discussion area.

I will probably be going offline... maybe. NEWS!

NEWS! The volume prob seems to have corrected itself... or I fixed it... well anyway, it no longer is giving me probs... knock on wood. So, I can delay the other problems for a bit longer... at least until my financial situation is a bit better.

Due to computer probs and outdated machine (my Mac) and a volume prob with the newer PC, both will be going in to the shop for work probably Monday or Tuesday.

Good m2f video

I've just watched a superb video on a m2f conversion made for TV at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xt_xjQ1gcy0

It not only covers the special effects conversion, which is beyond most of our pockets, but also the ways in which females move and behave differently to males. It's 22 mins long, and well worth a watch.

World Hacking site

I don't know how many of you know about this site, but since I'm in the Cyber-security. I find this site interesting to say the least. It shows real time hacking or cyber attacks and where they originate from and who is doing what. Check it out for yourself.
http://map.norsecorp.com/#/

Don't worry its a safe site to visit.
Also if you want to try your hands at hacking something. This place is a safe place to use as well.

Everything -- including the Kitchen Sink

My life has gone through many recent changes.

I sold another business and am now semi-retired which has dropped my income by two-thirds -- at least until I can get more consulting work.

We bought an old house (1906) and are doing extensive remodeling.

Although I have limited current resources for contributing money to BC, I am buying quite a lot of remodeling supplies on Amazon and using the link you provided. Yesterday's purchases included the kitchen sink! Hopefully, since our purchases are adding up to a large total, BC will receive a nice commission.

I'll be gone and Psyren's Redemption

Hey, just a note, I'm not going to be in much the next week and a half. I'll be heading out for a long overdue vacation tomorrow morning. If you need to get in touch with me, you can message me here, but I'll probably be much quicker to answer you if you shoot me an email at: daw_dah(at)yahoo(dot)com

When dealing with IDIOTS, you have to speak their language...

OK, so I USED to be a member of a site called Geeker.com. It was touted as a FREE streaming site. When I was actually CHARGED for the service, I went online, to a "Live Chat", to try to rectify the situation. Below is the ENTIRETY of the transcript. Please note what occurs at the very end, especially. It's quite humorous!

Ronald Bailey

Why was I charged for a FREE membership? I have e-male proof Geeker.com charged me during my 5-day free trial (which I applied for on June 8). I was charged by Geeker.com on June 9th, JUST ONE DAY later.

It's criminal that Erin has to beg

every damned month for help in keeping Top Shelf open and running smoothly! It pisses me off more than I can say and it frustrates me beyond anything else in my life and it hurts me that, because of a lsck of funds, Erin is reduced to not paying people that NEED to be paid and has bankrupted herself in the process of providing us with this wonderful place!

Been hearing a lot about Patreon(differences?).

I've noticed people on here using Patreon as well as hearing about journalists and artists using it. What makes this service more desirable than donating to say...someone on Twitch if you're a broadcaster, YouTube or Daily Motion? I talked to this one guy who was raving about it, in terms of journalistic coverage.
I mean I've looked at a bit but would be interested to hear why you like it so much.
