Nothing has happened to me, really. I'm still alive and well and writing like crazy. I just haven't been doing it here in the forum. Writing here is like talking in an empty room with no one to hear you talking. I figured that wasn't very healthy for me so I set out and placed my writings in scattered locations around the web, hoping to find people who would listen to me. But then I realized that I and my stuff was far too scattered, plus I wanted a home, so to speak. So I decided to find a place to centralize my writings so that they could all be found in one place.....well, two.
First, though, I started a magazine and called it White Feather Magazine. I figured that would be a great way to bring my writings together for people to read. It's sort of an offshoot of my original White Feather Journal idea except it wouldn't be lost to the world being here in the forum. White Feather Magazine is professionally published by Lip Gravy Press (my publishing company) and is available at all the major online booksellers like Barnes & Noble, Apple, Kobo, Scribd, Oyster, Inkterra, and soon at Amazon. The whole world can find it. The magazine is a great way to keep up with the best of my recent writings. It features articles as well as short stories and short memoir pieces. (I've been writing a lot of short stories lately.) I'm planning on coming out with 9 to 10 issues a year. Volumes 1 and 2 are already out.....
And that leads me to my next announcement. I now have my own book page. You can still get all my books and now my magazines from all the major online booksellers but now you can also get them directly from me. You can instantly download any of my books, all volumes of my magazine and all podcasts from White Feather Radio (I forgot to mention that I've started doing audio podcasts again) to your Kindle, your PC, your laptop, your tablet, your ereader, your phone or you can read or listen online. But wait! There's more! From my book page you can also choose to subscribe to a Writings of White Feather Membership and for one price you can get ALL of my books, ALL volumes of the magazine, ALL podcasts from White Feather Radio, plus ALL new weekly writings as I write them over the course of a year. Plus you will get notified every time I come out with a new story, article, book or podcast and you will have instant access to it without any additional cost. So you never, ever have to miss anything I ever write. How cool is that? (My new magazine can be downloaded individually here but is included as part of the Membership as well.) Check out my new page here:
If you're not ready to buy a membership but would like to get notifications from me about new releases you can follow me by signing up here:
If you're still not ready for a membership and are following me but would like to sample some of my recent writings you can do so at my brand new Patreon webpage. Patreon is a fairly new website that allows people to patronize writers, musicians, podcasters and other artists. There are three main pages: the homepage which includes a little bio of me and options for becoming a patron, the creations page which includes stories, articles, posts and podcasts that you can read or listen to. They are all pdf downloads that can be read or listened to on most all devices. Most of them are free but some will be available only to patrons. There I will be posting a selection of featured writings and podcasts. The third page is the activities page where you can comment on any of my postings. As a patron you can even make your own posts. It's like a mini-discussion forum. There, you'll be able to interact with me and other followers and patrons. Here is the link:
So, as you can see, even though I've been rather in absentia here in the forum, I've been quite busy. And I will continue to be. I will be providing plenty of reading for everyone on a regular basis. The stories are gushing forth and with the audio podcasts there will be new ways to enjoy them and with the Activities feed at my Patreon page there will be new ways to interact with me and others. I invite everyone to check out my new endeavors and I profoundly appreciate anyone who either becomes a patron or who subscribes to everything through the Writings of White Feather Membership.
As for this forum, it's still here and it's still open for anyone to utilize. I will try to occasionally visit but all my serious writings will be found at my new pages and in my new magazine. And don't forget that Transformation Now has a Facebook page where everyone can make posts and replies just like here in the forum. As for the new homepage of Transformation Now, I've been a bit negligent with that but I still hope to develop that and I hope to soon give that a major facelift.
So plenty is still happening. So keep checking back and please check out my new endeavors and consider being a part of them. Thank you.
