Charity Challenge!A Quick Charity Challenge!
That's right. I have a challenge for all the writers out there.
First, read this article: http://abc7ny.com/news/photos-second-old-burial-vault-found-beneath-washington-square-park/1068922/)
Secondly, write a short story (15k or less) where one or more vampires were sealed up in this vault and suddenly wake to find themselves in the 21st century.
Finally, send your tale to my email. masteranthonystevens [at] gmail [dot] com.
What do you get for all that work?
Based on comments, I'll select the top six or seven tales and edit them into an anthology. Once done, I'll release it as a PDF with a Creative Commons license so that anyone can print and sell it as long as ALL proceeds go to a charitable cause.
-- Please use your own characters, no fanfic.
-- Times New Roman preferred, one space after period, italics are okay, em dashes are okay.
-- .doc, .docx, .txt, .odf, and .rtf file formats are fine.

Ello NetworkI recently joined the new Ello network and there are a TON of artists of all types. If you want some idea of what Ello is, check this LA Times article.
One of the great photographers on Ello has compiled a list of other photogs.
Ello is still in BETA and invite-only, but if anyone would like an invite, let me know. First-come, first-serve. When I run out, you'll have to wait.
Cosplay PhotosThose of us that enjoy cosplay, will find Mr. Santoso's website a treasure trove of worldwide cosplay photos. He was kind enough to list my SuperCon gallery ( http://ecfield.deviantart.com/gallery/50202813/SuperCon )along with hundreds of other cosplay photo sites.
His site is: http://www.nyx.net/~wsantoso/cosplay.html
It's a great life...If you don't weaken.
I've spent the last six weeks working on a new eCommerce website. If all goes well, I'll be announcing it to the world on October 1st. Besides the usual free stories, blog, and pretty pictures, I'm be offering novels, audiobooks, cardstock models, and stock photos.
If anyone would like to help with the beta testing, please send me an email and I'll share the URL.
In other news, there was a really pretty sunrise on the end of my street, so I'm sharing it in the form of a panoramic shot, suitable for desktop wallpaper. Enjoy!
New WebsiteI've been buried in building a new website for the last month. It is now ready for testing. If anyone has a few minutes, I'd appreciate some feedback on how it looks in your browser. Supposedly, it will work well in all major browsers as well as smartphones and tablets. The URL is: http://postorbitallibrary.com/
As soon as the beta test phase is over and I'm satisfied that all the basic components work, I'm going to add a lot more content.
The only part that I *know* isn't working is the Stock Photo gallery. I still have to sort out the "Buy Now" buttons on it.
Hope everyone is having a great week!
SuperCon in MiamiI spent most of Saturday at SuperCon in Miami and shot almost two hundred images.
A few of them have been posted to a new SuperCon folder in my Gallery.
I want to apologize for not being able to thank everyone for the recent faves. It's been hectic and I've just not had the time. Believe me, they are all appreciated.
Photowalk in the ParkI went with another couple of photographers, for a walk in a local park. Got some interesting shots. Also spent some time at the beach.
All in all, it was a lovely day.
Shibari Sails CoversI've just posted three samples of cover art for a short story I'm going to publish this summer. I don't believe any of them will be the final cover, but I'm asking for some feedback. What do you think? Which one looks best in both thumbnail and full-size view?
For those who are interested, the model is the lovely Meena, the camera is a Panasonic Lumix FZ100, the post-production work was done with GIMP and Inkscape.
Any questions, feel free.

★RULES AND INFO★
Update from DD-Catalogue FounderDear All,
Thank you for 'watching' DD-Catalogue, and for all your support over the last 4 years. You may have noticed that the group has recently lost super group status. I'd like to apologise for the disruption this has caused to our Gallery and homepage. I'd also like to apologise for the lack of updates and features recently. I have neglected the group somewhat during my university study.
...but I'm planning a revamp to make it better than ever!
I would appreciate it if you could give me some feedback in the comments on some of the following:
What do you like most about DD-Catalogue?
What would you like to see from DD-Catalogue? (features/interviews/polls ??)
Would you donate a small amount towards Super Group status?
Would you like to be on the admin team?
Thanks for reading,
Add this Journal to your 'favourites' if we have your support in bringing DD-Catalogue back to life!
DeviantArt, deviantART and Lots of Things TooWe're going to be DeviantArt, officially. But you can always call us deviantART. You'll get to be retro, and that's always... well, retro! This goes for DA and dA, too.
It was nice to see Moonbeam13 and starvingartist today in Toronto. We got some lunch. Then 'Beam was nice enough to drive me to the airport with Rob. Rob! Happy Birthday Moonbeam!
I'm in the sky eating a banana at the moment. I wonder what monkeys would make of me eating a banana at 30,000 feet. Let alone journaling on DA from here.
I was in Toronto visiting Autodesk, and the teams behind Sketchbook and Pixlr and other awesome apps they have. What wonderful people. I really enjoyed seeing what they're up to, it's all very exciting.
I've been hanging out on #devart on dAmn today, and I asked Pickley to pull together all the best scripts and projects out there that improve dAmn. This way DA can consider buying the code, interfaces, etc. and
