A 6-post collection

Machinations in the Works...

My "band" Ellipsis Addiction has an album launch happening thanks to CD Baby. It's costing me $50 (almost) to put it out there so if five people actually buy it [album price $10] then I can recoup my losses.

And yes, there is no such thing as a free music distribution platform. Sure, you can post it on Soundcloud, but... Soundcloud will only do so much for free. Boo.

So yeah. This is me, going through more official channels. Well. Official for the Internets.

This is hereby open permission FROM THE ARTIST to use the music for whatever you like. For free. Without any hassle. I will help you fight any auto-flagging horseshit.

I've uploaded the album, This is Awkward to CD Baby and paid the fees [$25 for the promotional BS and a further $20 for a freaking BAR CODE] and it will be fully available once their own inspection makes it through to the end.

Meanwhile, I'm 3/4 through editing all the stories for Episode 13 of Inter-Mission. I'm hoping this won't be like chapter 13 of my assorted fictions, wherein something goes pants and my ability to internet goes out the window for unspecified lengths of time... or my entire computer blows up.

Joke's on you, fate and fortune - I have SPARES.


Cue the state-wide blackout in 5... 4...

Coming Soon...

This Friday, I join up with a D&D group at Beloved's workplace. I may or may not have the little darlings in tow. That would make the evening more interesting, to be certain. And more expensive, since taking the train in is my pln for that evening.

I'm going to be documenting the adventures of Gerroff, a Kobold bard with an INT score of 10. They're agender and never saw why that was important. Whatever passes for puberty amongst Kobolds

Interactive Fiction(s)

The idea behind interactive fiction is thus: if you want to add a bit, you can!

It is not a round robin, you do not have to wait your turn.

I would prefer one big suggestion to ten billion tiny ones. Contrary to popular opinion, I do have a life. I may not always have the time to manage what you generate…

I currently have all my fics on “Anyone with a link can comment” for now. If anyone

Phew! (pantpantpant)

I managed to bodge up a cover for my upcoming free book [Out TOMORROW!] in fantastic Suck-O-Vision care of my pathetic art skills and equally pathetic Inkscape skills.

It all stems from the concept that there’s a point in my story where my antagonist is completely covered in… things… [Spoilers] Therefore, the view plate of their helmet would be all HUD.

All I had to do was design the farging HUD.

Pain. In. The Arse.

Not doing that
