I'm an all around creative person. I paint, I sketch, I write, I shoot photos.

    Analytics, Kickstarters, Distributors, Oh my, mega news/blog post

    The not Dead Online Novel Blog - News roundup. Kickstarters, Distributors, Contests, Oh my. #serialnovel #webfiction #wattpad

    Sometimes the news front is pretty quiet. For a while there I thought webfiction and serials were heading into a dark period.  However, just when you think it’s time to give up a lot of things start to converge in interesting fashion.

    Do analytics mean as much as you really think they do?

    I’m not quite sure how to feel about Jukepop (formerly Jukepop Serials) and analytics.   A downturn in…

    Hello, everyone! Greetings from the HYRK headquarters. ^^x As some of you might already know, the Rurouni Kenshin manga will celebrate its 20th anniversary on April! The first chapter of the manga was published on Weekly Shonen Jump No. 19. ^^x

    This is a special milestone that’s worth celebrating so HYRK is thinking of holding RuroKen Week as tribute to 20 awesome years of RuroKen. We’ve already talked with a couple of active graphic makers and fanfic writers in the RK fandom and they’ve all expressed their willingness to participate. However, it’s not really a celebration if we’re the only ones who’ll join, right?

    So our question is:

    RUROKEN WEEK ON APRIL: YES OR NO?

    Please reply/reblog/message us with your thoughts, prompt suggestions and if you’d be willing to join! We’ll come up with the prompts and challenges right away if you guys are up for it. ^^x

    Yes interested. Biggest problem for me is I am not all that regular with Tumblr and I don’t check in everyday.  I’d be up for some small writing projects and /or possible fanart though although maybe not in official capacity. Tell us what hashtag you want us to use though.. I will try to participate.

    2014 — Withdraw, Focus, Stay Silent

    2014 — Withdraw, Focus, Stay Silent #blog

    This year I decided to focus on two things: editing my book in earnest and taking care of myself.  I don’t think I shall spend time publicly defining the latter.  As far as the first, this comes because I think art has become a strange thing to do . It’s not my native form for expression any more. Writing I think feels more natural, more immediate, and more accessible — particularly because…

    Previewing how your serial novel website looks on various devices

    It’s been a while since we’ve talked about design . I know several several folks have already put out their opinions on how to design navigation for a blog-based webfiction/ serial novel so I won’t revisit that topic.  However, I haven’t seen many blogs among the veterans regarding pointing out the need to design for multiple platforms.

    Over the past few years, Google Analytics data for my…

    Next week! Indie Recon -an online conference on self-publishing – 2.25-2.27

    Sorry folks for a pretty quiet 2014. I am mulling writing a short series on promotion (as there are a lot of people trying rather hard) but need some time to put those thoughts together.

    Just a head’s up. Indie Recon is back this year and starts next week!
