Every time I think to do an update, I realize that most of the people who would be interested -- the many people who supported me over the years -- are no longer watching me due to the DA debacle. It's hard not to resent DA; I feel gutted and not-wanted here. My own fault, I suppose they will say. However, other people in my same situation managed to get their accounts back intact.

Ah well. Since it's been 5 months since the last update...

Things are going better. I have moved permanently with my family. No more long weekend drives. I thankfully found a job in my new city. Difficult transitioning to a new workplace/people/routine after being at the same firm for 25 years. But, I'm managing.

Creative-wise? I'm in a wasteland. You'd think having things finally settle somewhat in my life would help. Unfortunately, it just drove home how much the last 2-3 years have changed me. Not for the better. Having everything stripped away from you can be liberating, but in many ways you don't have the energy, or desire, to rebuild. Hopefully, it will return someday, but today is not that day. In the meantime, I have been posting some micro-fiction/poetry on my personal blog. It's not much, but maybe it will serve as hope that my creativity will return in the future. *sigh*

On a brighter note. I did have a nice "DA-moment" in recent weeks. In a bit of a whirlwind, ihateseptictanks and I-is-smart dropped by for a visit on their way back home from a convention. Ravenswd and I had a blast finally meeting them -- we've known these guys for years! :D And it was good catching-up on old times. Here's a picture:

Anyhow, not sure if there will be much more to post for another 5 months. So, I will wish you all well for the upcoming holiday season. 2019 is ahead of us. While 2018 wasn't quite as bad as 2017, I'm not sure 2019 will bring much more relief. That said, I have a roof over my head, a job, and my family. Can't really ask for more.

Relativity Updates

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 6, 2018, 10:35 AM
Welcome to Gale City


This journal is purely for notifications of new stories and content on the Relativity website (www.blacktorrent.us). Regardless of when content is posted on the site, our plan is to update this journal twice a month, so it won't flood your in-box. For the most current info, check the website and/or join our email list for notifications. 



June 27, 2018 - We've finished adding Book 2 stories to the Relativity site (ebook download coming soon). It's been a bit slow, since we've made some minor character and story changes which required updating of the episodes. Book 3 stories are being added now, and we will continue with all the episodes until the series (so far) is re-posted. -- We have also completed the audio versions of Episodes 2 and 3, which you can view/listen-to on our Youtube channel  Download versions will be available once all the stories in that book are complete.

We're also happy to announce we're still on-track to start publishing new episodes late summer. Yay! We hope you'll drop by and say hi, and see what's new with Relativity.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

June 6, 2018 - As it is right now, Book 1 is on the site, and Book 2 stories are being added one-by-one this week. Books 3-6 will be added in the same fashion. New stories are scheduled to publish late summer -- but, honestly could be sooner given our motivation. Art and bonus content will also be re-added over the next few months. Hopefully, things will be running at a regular pace come Fall.

Again, our thanks for your continued support.

Hi, I am so sorry that you are feeling down and it is tough having your identity stripped away. Between DA and your life, I hope things get better for you.
