We Have Liftoff!

Welcome back to my website, after several years of absence. This is such an exhilarating time for me. The process of rebuilding this site has been extraordinary, and dusting off all of my old stories has gotten my creative juices flowing in a big way!

So the biggest news is the eBooks. That’s right, every single work of fanfic I’ve written is now super portable, and can be downloaded to pretty much any eBook reader or app of your choice. They are also available as printable PDFs for anyone who is so inclined. This is to ensure that, no matter how you’re browsing my site, there’s a way for you to comfortably read the stories on it. And if anything ever happens to send me into a years-long hiatus again, whatever stories you felt inclined to download won’t disappear with me and you can revisit them at your convenience.

The next big news is that we’ll be doing the same thing for RGFC and AoVD in the months to come. RGFC has somewhere around 150 stories in its archive, and AoVD’s story count (including a whole lot of materials we were planning to get into the archive but never actually got around to) is nearly 700 works, so the process of converting them to these new formats will take a little longer. But we’re well on our way, and a lot of useful practice (and experimentation!) was conducted with my stories and pages.

What else? Oh, yes! The final bit of big news is that there is one work in my archive that is temporarily unavailable: The Slow Burn. That was the very first piece of fanfic I ever wrote, and became my least favorite because I really hadn’t found my style yet, and I was trying to do a Riddick/OFC piece which turned out to really not be my thing. But when you’re dredging everything out to convert for showcasing on your brand-new archive, sometimes the wackiest muses hit. Or, at the very least, I found myself saying “this will not do” when I took a fresh look at chapter 3… and next thing I knew, I’d rewritten it, rewritten chapter 4, and shoe-horned in a brand new chapter between chapter 4 and what had been chapter 5. Anyway, while I’m tearing it up and messing with it, it will stay offline… but I’m having way too much fun and I suspect it will be back soon— hopefully much improved.

So that’s the situation! More to come soon!
