Yeah, I'm all screwed up

So I've been sitting here being all twisted out of shape because SOL has not posted my latest chapter.

Of course it would help if I was not posting the same chapter that I had already posted!

What a putz. Chapter 14 - White Russian has now been submitted and should be up as soon as SOL realizes that I am a doofus!

I'm Going For It

I have been playing with this idea for awhile. I have started a Universe called "Spirits Of Love". I have a few stories in the can and will begin posting them soon.

After the first few stories I will open the Universe up to authors that see directions I don't.

I think it is a great idea, but I married my second ex-wife!


The Strawberry Patch and Nick Scipio

What started out as a little story is growing. My muse has these very interesting ideas and directions.

The story is taking a turn that I did not anticipate a few months ago. I can't wait to see where it goes.

Thank you for the positive feed back and criticism. I treat is all as a chance to learn to be a better servant of my readers and my self.

Also, I have received mixed responses to the fan fiction story I wrote about Nick Scipios Summer Camp characters Paul and Kendall. Most of the replies had to do with people being upset about Nick not posting very often.

I will never complain about an author who puts his stuff out there for free taking his time doing it. Hell, maybe his muse took a vacation like mine did.

Anyway, I am about set to release another piece of fan fiction based on Summer Camps' Coulter family. Big Ed Magnusson has a series of stories about Chris Coulter that are considered canon in the Summer Camp universe. My story has been ok'd by him and Nick so look for it soon.

Thanks again

I Messed Up!

Hi All

I messed up the posting of the last few chapters of Strawberry Patch.

I have reposted Chapter 11 and Chapter 12 and have flogged myself for the errors.

I have also posted Chapter 13.

My muse has returned, but I think she has Tourette's!

Please bare with me, I WILL get this right!

A schedule of posts

One of my favorite authors, Peguintopia, just released a statement telling his schedule for releasing chapters and other items.

I thought that this was a great idea, so I am going to copy him.

I know that it makes me crazy when I lose continuity in a story because the chapters are published so far a part. I also understand that since beggars (read as getting free stuff) can't be choosers, I really cannot complain.

I also understand that writers are not always professionals (pure amateur here!)and that means they write when they. So keeping that in mind here is some info for those that have been kind enough to read my scribbles.

New chapters of the The Mick and Keri stories will be updated every Sunday night until the series ends around the end of the summer.

New chapters of The Strawberry patch are being written and on the way. A new Chapter 11 Addendum was put in the queue today and since the muse has jumped back in my bed more will follow. In some cases they will be addendum's to previous chapters.

I had a fabulous idea for a new series and I am going to be working on it over the next few months. It is a great idea and I am hoping that my meager writing talents will do it justice. I plan to write 8-10 chapters before I publish the first. That way I will have a buffer in case my muse takes another hike and I will still be able to post a chapter a week to keep everyone on board.

The last thing is that I published a couple of really short flash type stories. I just had a couple of ideas and popped them onto paper. They were not well received judging by the scores, but I don't write for the scores. I write for me. If you gave it a poor score I would really enjoy hearing from you and get your opinion as to why you scored it low. Really!

Thank you for your time and support
