A Last-Ditch Effort...

I'm considering closing down the Challenger Storm blog. It's never generated much traffic and I never get any feedback or response to what I've been doing there, and consequently this has contributed to the infrequency of my posts. Keep in mind that I wouldn't stop writing the Storm novels, just ceasing the posting on the blog. There's more interaction and interest on Facebook than on any other platform, frankly, and it's always been that way. I wouldn't rule out doing any other writing blog in the future either, but this thing just feels dead in the water.

Thoughts? Feedback? The sound of crickets?

Like A Bad Penny, I Always Turn Up

Why, hello there.

Okay, so here I am again, about to apologize for disappearing once more.

I'm sorry I dropped off the face of the earth again.

Okay, that's out of the way.  I'm done with whatever funk I was in that was hindering my productivity.  While it was happening, Michael Wm. Kaluta got nominated for the Pulp Factory Awards for his cover art for THE CURSE OF POSEIDON (yayy, Mike!).  I'm finally back to writing now, and although my current project isn't Challenger Storm, I will be returning to Storm's adventures soon enough.  WHITE HELL is more than half complete, and I'm going to try and get that done in a more timely fashion.

In the meantime, I have enough projects in the works that I will be busy with writing even without the MARDL crew.  What those projects are, I still can't discuss, but you'll hear it here first (or on Facebook or Twitter, whatever... but you'll still hear it here!).

Now, I'm actually asking for some participation from loyal readers and those who care:

I have two features that I've begun for the blog and I need to know which one folks would prefer first: would you be interested in reading more of the web-serial, THE VALLEY OF FEAR, or would you rather read some behind-the-scenes tidbits in a writer's commentary for Storm #1, THE ISLE OF BLOOD?  Personally, I could go either way, but I'd like to know what people would like from me.

Remember: as the saying goes, art cannot exist in a vacuum (not that what I do is art, but you know what I'm saying).  I don't hear a lot of interaction from people who have checked out my stuff or from a lot of those that have actually read it, so any opinion or feedback would help greatly folks.

Thanks, as always!
