Psyren’s Redemption – Double Feature – Read for Free Now

Since I was sick and neglected to post a serial part last week, I’m making up for it by posting two parts.

Ch 27 Pt 1

Sapphira races to confront Chemosh, but when he finally arrives will he be able to overcome her or will he be bested by the once-god?

Ch 27 Pt2

It's weird isn't it?

So this week I've come down with a particularly nasty virus that has left me sicker than a dog. I missed two days of work which should tell you how sick I am as I rarely call in. I mention this not to elicit sympathy, but rather as explanation. I seldom am so sick that it effects my writing, but since taking ill I sit down at my keyboard and I am unable to string even so much as two words together. Even writing this blog is taking me far longer than it normally would.

Anyone familiar with 'The Tick' Comic/TV series?

Author: 

Is there anyone familiar with 'The Tick' comics and/or TV series (in particular the 90s cartoon or the 2000s live-action)? I recently started watching the amazon 'Original' reboot of The Tick and was a little disheartened to discover that the superhero agency was called AEGIS. For those that are following my ongoing serial on my website you're probably beginning to realize my problem, but for those that aren't well... I also named the superhero agency in my series AEGIS.

Psyren's Redemption - Amy in Peril - Read for free now

An update and a poll (seeking input)

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)

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.

New serial up on D.A.W.'s website

Just a note to my fans as discussed in my previous blog, the first part of my new serial is up on my website! I do hope you enjoy. Click the link below to read it.

I'd just like to take a moment and thank everyone who participated in the poll on my website.

I've gone over the results and my final decision concerning the future of my website in this weeks blog post. And surprise, I've opened up two of my story universes to other authors!

You can read about it on my website.

Haven't been getting a lot of writing done.

My dog and constant companion of almost ten years and best friend, passed away unexpectedly late last week. I don't really feel much like writing right now. I've always been a bit socially awkward so I don't have many friends. Coming home to her after a day of work was always the highlight of my day.

Any Spanish speakers?

Any one fluent in Spanish hereabouts who'd be willing to do a little bit of proofing? I have a few lines of spoken dialogue in my story that are in Español, and I want to make sure I've translated them correctly.

Whoever offers their help will get a hole heaping pile of nothing, unless my undying gratitude and an honorable mention in my author's rant counts for something.

Everyone have a delightfully demented day,

D.A.W.

'The Earth Source Universe'

Author: 

In case anyone is wondering what the crap happened to Battle For Earth, it's still here I just moved it into it's new Universe Organizer page aka the Earth Source Universe.

Also for those that are interested Legacy of Earth, the sequel to Battle For Earth, is up to about 45,000 words and I'm getting really close to finishing the first part. It won't, however, see the light of day until all parts are finished. Sorry.

Well what do you know?

Author: 

It seems my five year anniversary with this site has gone and past more than a month without me noticing. I certainly hope I'll be around in another five years. This place is such a welcome community and though I'm not as deeply involved as some folks in these parts, I've always found the attitude friendly and inviting.

Kudos to Erin, and crew for running such a great site!

After Battle For Earth... What's next?

So... I've received a number of inquiries about my next story... Most of my responses thus far have been that I was working on a superhero story titled Pyren's redemption, but sometimes plans change. I still intend to write Pyren's redemption and will probably work on it on the side, but the requests for sequels to Battle for Earth did not go unnoticed. I've been intending to write a sequel all along, but I generally like to take a break from a series after I finish it. This time around, I really, really, really wanted to start work on the sequel. So...

A long overdue Battle For Earth update

I know it probably seems as if I've fallen off the face of the Earth (at least the part of it that happens to be on the top shelf of a rather big closet and other places where tg writers lurk), but believe it or not I do have good news for those that actually seem to like to read my demented ramblings. The final parts of Battle For Earth, will get posted in the near future when I have time to get them edited. I admit I did sit on the ending for long periods, but between those periods it went through a number of different and rather extensive revisions.

Battle For Earth Delay

Just a note for folks who are anticipating the next episode of Battle For Earth, I have some changes I want to make to said part which due to a plumbing disaster and an all around busy week haven't gotten done. As such I'm a bit tired and burnt out. I'm pretty sure the delay will be less than a week, but probably more than a few days unless I find the time (or inclination) to revise it today.

Everyone have a delightfully demented day,

D.A.W.

Battle For Earth: Infiltration epub & pdf

For those that are still interested I've uploaded the epub for Battle For Earth:Infiltration. You can grab it from the outline page or download it directly from this link. As with Battle for Earth: Resistance if you want the pdf I will send it to you via email. Just send me a PM with your email addy and I'll get it sent out.

Regarding Battle for Earth epubs and pdfs.

Well, those who've followed my stories for the last several years are probably aware that I often provide pdf and epub versions of my stories for folks to download here on bigcloset. Unfortunately, I won't be able to provide PDF documents this time around as the file sizes are much too large (bigcloset has a max file upload size of 2 mb). I could reduce them by producing inferior images or removing from the images from pdf altogether, but that's something I very am very keen on doing. If anyone is interested in a pdf download I am willing to send them a copy of the file.

Well this is significant

Author: 

Or at least it seems that way to me. You see, I've finally reached 200,000 words on Battle For Earth. Which is, well, pretty dang long and I'm not even finished yet. And considering that it's about 2.5 times as long as destiny which was previously my longest story to date that seems pretty darn impressive to my demented mind. Anyway now that I've gotten that out in the open it's time for me to drift off to sleep and venture into the lands of dreams and make believe...

Writing Update

Author: 

A quick note to anyone who is a fan of my stories or flash fiction. If you haven't noticed already I've been contributing to Hutcho's monthly anthology. So be sure to check it out if you haven't already and note that I have (until now) been quietly adding links to each of my contributions on my Author Page.

California bans 'trans-panic' defense.

Just saw this today and I was a surprised no one had posted about it here. Thought it would be of interest to a lot of the folks here.

California Becomes First State to Ban Gay, Trans 'Panic' Defenses. It's sad that someone can try to justify murder for any reason, but at least this is a positive step. I was surprised, for once most of the comments seem to be positive.

Novel writing software kickstarter

Hope I'm not overstepping any bounds here, but I just thought I'd pop in and mention this since it might be of a lot of interest to folks here. I recently got the privelege to beta test a piece of online novel writing software known as Novlr. It allows you to rearrange and organize chapters as seperate documents in a manner similar to Scrivener, but has a much simpler interface. Currently, it's not very feature rich, but new features have been promised.

Offensive characters

Author: 

So here and there I've been working on an as yet untitled superhero tale. I must have rewritten the beginning close to half a dozen times, and I think I've finally settled on a starting I actually like. The main problem is that I'm worried that the protagonist may be a bit too offensive. Everett is a racist, sexist, and a homophobic old man... now I know what you're thinking.. BUT I'm none of those things and by the end of the story 'Everett' won't be either.

Site-versary and an update

Well, it looks like the anniversary of joining the site passed me by without me noticing. I've now been a member for three years and six days and let me just say I'm glad I did wind up joining the site as is often the first place I visit when I first sit down at my computer. The community is welcome and inviting and the atmosphere is unparalleled. I'd just like to add Kudos to Erin and crew for their continued work in keeping the site up and running and for maintaining said atmosphere! :D

Some helpful apps for writers

Blog About: 

Author: 

In my daily foray into the 'interwebs' I ran across a rather helpful blog post listing 22 apps for writers which I thought I'd share here for those interested. I only personally use two of those mentioned, Scrivener and Evernote, but the others definitely seem to be worth a look.
