Folks dug it when I did regular updates for anachronauts. So, since I just finished coa//003 and have some honest to god buffer room, I’m bringing that practice back.
Starting next week, CoA will be updated weekly every Monday evening. I may do additional updates during the week if I’m seriously on a roll or have something else to show you but you should get some sort of content update piping hot and fresh every Monday.
In other policy news I’m including the two ad boxes on the latest story draft page. They will be removed once the story goes final and then pushed onto the next draft. That way I can link right to the drafts to give you one-click access from the blog, and still keep my page views up. Again, if the ads are Deplorable in any way let me know and I can cancel the offending ad.
Next item up is encouraging feedback. I know there’s at least 30 folks out there reading the series, based on my VIP club numbers. That is awesome and I’m so happy you’re hanging around and enjoying the series — I’d also like you bring you into the community overall. Feedback to the latest drafts is the way I guide the story somewhere you want it to go, by making character tweaks to keep them fun to read and fixing up problems you spot along the way. Even just “COOL STORY BRO” is good feedback to leave since it says I’m on the right track.
So, I’m pondering sort of Achievement Points wackiness, wherein each post you comment in gets you one point towards a nifty reward. That may be a ministory written about you, a CoA bookmark by mail, some high resolution desktop wallpaper, or whatevers. Not sure how this’ll work with anonymous posting but I can figure something out — IF this is something you see encouraging you to post. It’s just an idea off the top of my head and I welcome your response.
See you Monday for the next scenes of coa//003. Then the week after that for its grand finale!
