If you follow me on social media, you have heard by now that I have a new segment coming to this blog. Serial fiction begins on Friday, October 2. I’ve written a short story and broken it into parts. I’m releasing one part each week through the end of November. That gives me plenty of time to start working on the next story to serialize on my blog. Each part will be short and quick to read. As new parts are posted, I’ll link them to previous posts and the previous post will get linked to the new post.
Also, you’ll notice in the menu bar, a section where links to all the parts can be found. Check out the Serial Fiction Page to see the dates when all the parts are scheduled to post. This first serialization is titled HellPets. A Hellcat and a Hellhound learn to tolerate one another while working to guide and collect souls for the Underworld. They’re a spooky odd couple and they’re cute animals. What could go wrong? I hope to have many installments of these demon pets over the next couple of years. For now, this is chapter 1 starting next week. I hope you all enjoy.
It’s a new month and we’re getting closer to being finished with the year from Hell. What’s new with me? I’m hoping to move into a new apartment by the end of September. I also need to catch up on my reading as I’ve gotten a few new books. What’s new with the blog? Well every Saturday this month I’ve scheduled some Protest Poetry. This is my version of nonviolent resistance with the current events happening in the United States. A couple of these poems are unpublished so this is the first time anyone will read them. I’m excited. Are you excited?
As usual, I have all my other poetry posts and Wacky Wednesdays will continue. I’m focusing on a few other holidays for the Coffee and Contemplation segment. I enjoy having some coffee and talking about these things. I also plan to have one post detailing some of my work I post on here. I want to explain what’s new and what stuff is old and I plan to never post again once I get through it all. I’m curious to know what you all think. Do you want to see more of one thing and something different? The goal is to continue building up this blog until I have at least three posts every day. That’s a lot for me right now. So, tell me what’s new with all of you.
Overall, not much is changing for the website this month. I’m sticking with the usual things as my pageviews each month continue to grow. We broke 500 pageviews for the month of June. Woot! I’ve stepped away from most social media to focus on the blog and website and things. I would like to have more videos on my YouTube Channel, but I don’t plan to work on any of that for the moment. I’m in the process of searching for a new apartment. That’s taking up most of my time this week.
Some new things I’m trying will include special blog posts. This is not your regularly scheduled programming. A couple extra posts here or there along with the usual things. I have a post every single day and now I’m expanding to throw in two posts a day. Maybe only once a week, but we shall see. If I feel the need to write something, I will write and post it. You’ll just have to read it and tell all your friends. I would enjoy hearing from you kind readers of my blog what you would like to read more about. Be it a specific topic or something random and new, I want to hear from you.
At some point I will try some new advertising and marketing avenues for my books. They fit my budget and perhaps cost to profit ratio will improve. I always get results, but the sales never justify the cost. I’ll let folks know how that goes in a post somewhere in the future. I hope to have many new things to talk about in August. It’s just around the corner but it still feels so far away. I’m sure the world will see several more disasters between now and then. I’m still convinced a ragtag team of special ops Bees took down the murder hornet threat. That’s why they disappeared.
