At some point yesterday I hit 100,000 views on my website. My author website has been up about two and a half years, and it’s been steadily gaining views. I now average over 200 a day. A big thank you to everyone who visits and reads.
So in honor of this occasion, I’m going to give away some stuff to random commenters. I’ve had 239 comments over the years. I had random.org pick some numbers between 1 and 239. The lucky winners are:
I’ll contact the winners via email. Up for grabs are any of my ebooks. If you’ve already got all of them–there aren’t that many yet–I’m willing to send you a paperback version once I get some made. That will be coming up in the next month or two. Otherwise, you can have seconds on an ebook or wait until I write something else for sale.
I just posted chapters Fifteen and Sixteen. Enjoy!
I’m excited to announce that my story, Pierced, is this month’s featured story on the “Can’t Stop Reading” blog at Gayauthors.org. You can read my interview here: http://www.gayauthors.org/forums/blog/258/entry-15263-csr-discussion-day-pierced-by-jvaughn/.
I’ll be answering reader questions live today from 4-6 pm PST at the same location. If you can’t make the live spot, feel free to leave me a question there anytime today. Hope you can make it.
Sincerest apologies for the delay. Chapter Fourteen is up now.
Chapter 13 is up. If you can’t stand cliffhangers, you might want to wait until I publish another chapter (or two) before you catch up.
I’m not happy with unlucky Chapter 13. I think I’m going to rewrite some of it from a different point of view and see if that helps. In any case, I won’t be posting it for at least several more days — hopefully I’ll have it beaten into submission by next weekend.
Thanks for checking in. –Jay
Warning: this chapter contains extreme violence. And, it ends in another cliffhanger — sorry. 😉
Sorry, it’s a cliffhanger, but I think every chapter from now until the last will probably be a cliffhanger — it’s that kind of story. 😉
if you’re so inclined. If not, Happy Solstice!
I’m sorry I missed posting Chapter 11 on Sunday, which had been my hope. However, I always find I slow down near the end of a story — not that I’m that close to the end. I always underestimate how long it’s going to take me to write a novel and I find I need “think time” to work out all the details. The same as with relationships for me: beginnings are easy, endings are hard.
It’ll be kind of embarrassing finishing a “Christmas” story in January (or, gulp!, February) but I don’t want to rush it. I’ll finish as soon as I can without compromising the story. I think I have 4 chapters left, including Chapter 11, but it might end up longer.
I’ll try to get 11 up by next weekend.
Meanwhile, have a lovely holiday. Eat, drink, and be merry — or whatever makes you happiest.
Sorry I’m a bit late this week. I’ve been trying to post on Sundays, but not only am I very busy with pre-holiday madness and family things, this chapter is a sex scene (oops! I just gave away the “plot”) and they’re always difficult for me to write.
Hope you enjoy.
