So today I launched "Small Galaxy," my serialized web novel. I've been working on Small Galaxy for a while, and after debating what I was going to do with it, I decided to go with what I like to refer to as "The Lazy Route" and just slap it up on my website in monthly installments. The story is a simple comedic science fiction adventure story... which doesn't sound all that simple when I say it out loud. But it will make sense, I promise. I like to think of it as "What if everyone in Flash Gordon was significantly less competent." Okay, so it isn't quite that, but whatever.
I'll be putting up at least one chapter a month, sometimes more than one if I'm dealing with a shorter chapter, but never less then that. I know I put up an earlier (okay, almost identical) draft of the first chapter quite some time ago, but we'll get to new material soon enough. If you haven't done so, go ahead and read the first chapter of Small Galaxy.
And yes, the "cover" image for Small Galaxy will eventually make sense at some point too. It is an actual scene from the story.
In unrelated news, Irresponsible Irreverence has finally been given its own forum. I'm of course trying to encourage feedback and discussion of the strips, and I figured that's the first step in doing so.
According to the ongoing poll on TRHOnline.com, people want to see commenting fuctionality installed on UnCONventional. I'm working on a plugin for the site which will allow you to do so using a TRHOnline.com ID and should have it rolled out by next week. What I have to do still is to create the ability for anonymous commenting in the system, which it currently doesn't support. While I know a lot of the readers for UnCONventional are active on the site, not everyone is. My main concern is finding a way to prevent spam from getting through, which is (of course) the bane of my existence.
Anyhow, I have something fun planned for Friday's blog - which hopefully the few of you who read my blog but are not at Geek.kon will enjoy. Or those who ARE at Geek.kon will enjoy on Monday after they wake up at 3pm.
