Reader complaints and an information update

Posted at

For those who are complaining that they can't find my work on ASSTR, it is at: https://www.asstr.org/~VeryWellAged/index.htm

For those of you who are demanding I just update the stories here and come back to SOL, allow me to explain again what I have explained here before.

SOL does not permit the format needed in my stories. These include footnotes, links to (non-sexual and non-infringing) material (text and photos), various fonts, margins and colors (used in reference to textual content of included emails, and SMS text conversation). I understand the nature of how this site works. It is simply not compatible with my needs. This is NOT a compliant on my part. I am only acknowledging the fact.

SOL does not permit any sexual content related to individuals younger than 14 years of age. (Some of my work here is grandfathered in but new stories of that type are not allowed.) I understand and respect the Webmasters need to adhere to the laws where he functions. This is NOT a complaint on my part. I am only acknowledging the fact.

And so, no, I cannot update the stuff that is here because the updates include the newer format requirements I have. And, no, I cannot post anything new here, for all the reasons above.

My new Novel can't be posted here

Posted at

I wish it could.

I know many still read my older and uncorrected works here. I do wish I could update what is here to reflect the updated/corrected versions and post new works. Such is not the case.

So this is just a note to announce my new novel Fifteen is available in HTML, PDF, ePub, mobe, and azw3 formats on the ASSTR website under my author's site VeryWellAged.

I am well into another story.

Unfortunately it will not be posted here. The need for footnotes and embedded hyperlinks makes that impossible. I am sorry for those of you who who only want to read what I have here.

My ASSTR site has remained up all these months even though the landing page on that site was down. I have been able to upload to it, and have cleaned up and reposted revisions of older works, though I did not have a new novel ready.

I still don't. It isn't ready, but it should be long before Christmas and maybe even before the fourth Thursday of November. I have seven chapters written but am not close to being complete yet. And then of course, there is the proofing and editing.

As I am not fighting for scores, and total hits. I will not post until it is complete.

Age of Consent

Posted at

When thinking about when sex is legal, it is enlightening to know that the age of consent at the Vatican was twelve years of age until is was changed to 18 in 2013 primarily because it became a 'scandal' and not for any other reason. Wrap your head around that.

Viewing habits

Posted at

As ASSTR's main pages are down, some folks are unaware that the author pages remain up.

(My ASSTR site is linked here.)

But because of the lack of a way to reach my pages unless you have the URL to begin with, it appears many readers are returning here to read my work.

That is flattering, though these are older, uncorrected and un-updated versions. In one case, the story Retirement, as it can be read here, is a truncated and badly botched version of the complete story as posted on my ASSTR site.

There are no new stories posted on the ASSTR site, beyond the twenty-once stories already there. (That's about ten more than what are here.) I am in a hiatus, I guess. However, I have, on ASSTR re-edited and re-released some of my work with new textual material in them and I have been adding to the visual aspects to all the stories.

From an early age I have been enthralled with graphic layout, fonts and typography. And though my last vocational venture into that realm ended more than forty years ago, the ASSTR site has allowed me to once again play with such things. I know it will be hubris in the eyes of many, but I hold firmly to the opinion that presentation, with fonts, layout, color, and other design elements do make a story more enjoyable to read.
