Far and Wide

I know there hasn't been much action here, but I just wanted anyone still watching this that I will primarily be posting on Far and Wide from now on.  I figured that since I plan on writing more than just the John Smith serial, I should have a more comprehensive blog, and that is it.  Check things out there, and follow if you wish.

Copies Keep selling..Thank you, anonymous buyers.

It's almost frustrating...  Why, do you ask.  People are buying the Part 1 to 7 compilation...and many are going in to buy part 8 and part nine, some for $2 and $3 each, voluntarily.

I just wish a few more would leave reviews or post here, because I like feedback.

I really want to make the stories as enjoyable as possible.

Well, guess I better get on to part 10 and beyond.  It'll be nice to have the first book finished...

John Smith, World Jumper Book One: Portal to Adventure, Part Nine POSTED!

Well, got part nine up, as well as a sample of Eagles in the Sand, my multi-timeline story set in Imperial Rome (era), WWII, and the near future.  I'd like to wrap up Book One, but I'm not going to rush it.  Probably have four parts left and I definately want to do it right.

Far and Wide

Since I plan on writing more than just the John Smith series, I've made a new, more comprehensive blog called Far and Wide.  Hopefully I'll be able to discuss other works there, and make it a sort of repository.

Review of Portal to Adventure, Part Eight

When I had initially conceived of writing the John Smith stories, I had planned to write them as a frequent and regular serial, with new installments every week or two on the outside. Having a full time job and family has made that a bit more problematic than I had expected, but now I have strong evidence that the month or three between parts is or most likely is effecting readership.

Mr. Stephen Fitzgerald of Canada had this to say in his review of part eight on Nov. 27, 2009: "Great story, but the episodes take way too long to come out. I wouldn't buy this until the story is finished."

I think that says it all. Thanks for the feedback Stephen and while I'm glad you liked the story, I will endeavor to get the chapters out more frequently. In any case, Book One should be wrapping up by chapter/part twelve or so, only four parts left. I'm going to make it my goal to get it out in a month, even before Christmas which is less than a month.

Thanks for the push!
