It’s always the same.

The first bit of writing on this site you may want to check out is the shiny new .epub edition of “Tales of the Starbuck Avenger!!!”, my long-running Internet serial story. If you’ve been to this site before and snagged a copy of “Tales…” prior to today, you’ll want to trash that sucker and grab a whole new copy! Unless, you know, you’ve got sentimental attachment, in which case, feel free to just download the new version. Why, you ask? Oh, I don’t know, how about a brand-spanking new cover image by the inestimable Shaenon K. Garrity? Additionally, less flashy but no less important, numerous small typographical and tonal corrections have been provided courtesy of the similarly inestimable Feech! Finally: this (I think) final version at last contains all the extant formal completed fan-art produced during the run of the piece. In short, this is the one you’ll want to show your kids. Assuming you want to show your kids a story about a girl who says “fuck” a lot. Because she does. Hoo boy, does she ever.
Hi, folks! Welcome to the new writing journal / blog / whatever the heck this is! Kick off your shoes and stay for a while.
Some (well, okay, most) of you have probably arrived here from other venues rather than stumbling upon the site directly, but, this welcome post remains the same, whether you’re a refugee of my audience on LiveJournal, a fan of “Skin Horse” come to check out what one of the co-authors does when he’s not writing comic scripts, or simply a bewildered surfer who hit upon this site by random chance after making a really profound typographical error in the URL box. This is to be my home for writing on the web for, I hope, many years to come. A couple basic points, as much for my reference as for yours:
- The intention here is that this blog will serve as a storehouse and showcase for my work. This means, fortunately or unfortunately (depending on your preferences), I’m going to be keeping the place pretty devoid of fan-labor and other derived works. Inasmuch as I am a Professional Author, I think it behooves me to have at least one site that reflects this fact.
- On a similar note, this is not a personal blog. Chattiness will be at a minimum, and confined to these administrative posts. You will, alas, have to look elsewhere for details on what flavor oatmeal I had for breakfast. It’s not that I don’t want to tell you, because I am in love with the sound of my own virtual voice and will happily chatter away given half an opening. It’s just that this isn’t the place.
- Monthly content updates. I’m starting modest on this; I’ve got a daily comic strip going and other writing commitments on top of that. If this starts going swimmingly I may up the scheduled frequency, but for now, I’m going to start with a somewhat less ambitious goal to avoid the inevitable apology-posts that absolutely no one wants to see, especially the author.
I think that’s about it! Stay tuned for content just as soon as WordPress deigns to allow me to post some, and as I said, welcome! It’s good to be here.
