A new story to read

I’ve been sharing a new story this month. It’s called Night Aggressions and is a horror story by Trent Becker and me. We’re posting a new chapter each Friday until it’s done. We’re posting it to the Emerald Dragon blog, here’s a link to the page with the chapters posted to-date. Go catch up before Chapter 4 drops this Friday. And be sure to leave us a comment on the chapters to let us know how we’re doing.

When we’re done, I’ll wrap it up neatly into an ebook for ya’ll as well.

Here’s the cover for our story:

My first beta readership and new logo

This month I’ve been participating in my first ever beta readership. It’s something I’ve been curious about lately, but had never done. Since I’ve been working on the first in a series of books, I figured now would be the best time to tap into that feedback machine. Learn a little something about my first book before trotting into other books in the series. Maybe learn a few lessons before I get too far.

It’s been a curious journey so far. I set basic rules, as it’s my first time and have been pretty lax. So far I’ve gotten back some responses with the rest coming later in the month, I hope. But I totally understand if people can’t complete, life is busy.

I’ll break down my setup and share how I went about it after it’s over. Let me know in the comments if you want to hear about my first beta readership.

In the meantime, I’m just sitting here with bated breath.

Time for a new logo, me thinks

In June I decided to change things up logo wise a bit. I took on a new city icon logo, just mildly different from the old one. And I gave it a rainbow background for Pride month. Today, I’ve updated that look, trying a pink/purple scheme which is also present throughout the website and blog. The old city icon, which is a standard city icon from the Windows 8 standards for design, has served me well for years. Part of me hates to see it go. BUT, in with the new. Huzzah! Hope you like it.

Glad to see Jyoti Q Dahiya has this collection up and running. Because she’s been sharing other folks’ stories for so long on Google+ there’s already a good collection in place. I have a few stories in there as well.

If you like reading stories from the crypt, I mean Google+, this is a good place to do so.
