The management of this site have informed authors that they will no longer support direct connections to external blog or forum sites as of 1 July 2014. That doesn't mean that those sites will go away, just that you won't be able to click on a direct link to get there.
For example, at the end of each of my stories is a link titled "Go to MemoryHeap's blog". That link used to take you to my external site. Now, it will take you to the SOL blog. You can still get to my external site, at www.memoryheap.com.
What you'll find there are stories that don't appear on SOL, and you'll find extra chapters of stories like "The Benefits of Friends". I always post new material on my site before it gets to SOL, or other sites. That way, my readers get a chance to critique and comment before the rest of the world gets to see it.
I hope you keep reading, and keep commenting, and feel free to sign up at my site if you're not already a member. Membership is only used to keep spammers away -- it costs nothing, and is completely confidential.
