  1. I hate nights like this. Got a psychiatry appointment in a few days, but tonight I feel so anxious and sad and alone and angry and ... it’s a lot. My heart won’t settle down, I feel light headed, and I invariably end up getting into a fight with my wife. It’s always my fault. I don’t know what comes over me. It’s like there’s this screaming in my head that drowns everything rational out.

  2. My birthday was yesterday! Help me celebrate by buying my Excellent scifi novel in either ebook or paperback! And then review it. Seriously folks, I need reviews.



  3. Well, I’m on Vero as Dylan Wayne Sanchez. It’s free for life for the first million people, and I do like free stuff, so hey.

  4. Finally been diagnosed as bipolar. Feeling the worst I’ve ever felt in my life. Every moment is a roller coaster of emotions. I just feel sick and tired and awful.

  5. Whew! Settling into a new job on Sales, an area I thought I’d never end up in. It’s axtually a really good job that pays REALLY well when you sell. I seem to have knack for it, luckily.


    Anyway, sales on my book have been slow but I’m working on the sequel and already love it so far. It’s gonns be so good!

  6. *MAYDAY*

    The paperback version of The Shadow Among The Stars is now available!



    I know a lot of you were waiting for it, so come get it!

  7. Well, Paperback should be available in less than 12 hours. Otherwise, The Shadow Among The Stars is on sale in E-Book format! You can now read up to partway through Chapter 4 for free.


    The link is here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077VNXRHN?ref_=pe_2427780_160035660

  8. A reminder that my novel, The Shadow Among The Stars, is now available for Pre-Order in Kindle E-Book format!


    The Shadow Among The Stars releases in both Kindle E-Book format and Paperback on the 15th! The book is also available through the Kindle Unlimited program, and readers who purchase the paperback copy receive a discounted price on the E-Book.


    Buy dozens of copies for all of your friends heedless of their wishes!



  9. I finally put it out. It's fun and fully playable even if it lacks elemental versions of the higher level monsters.

  10. I’ve begun being really depressed and feeling awful things. I’m quitting the medication I’ve been on that seems to start it, but it’s really bad. Keep having to push through and edit my book and try to keep looking to the future.

  11. It is with immense pleasure that today I am able to announce the date of publication for The Shadow Among The Stars! I sincerely hope you’ll join me in the first book of The Dread Naught Trilogy.


    Pre-Orders for The Shadow Among The Stars in Kindle E-Book format will be available December 1st!

    The Shadow Among The Stars will be unleashed upon the galaxy December 15th, in both Kindle E-Book and Paperback formats!

  12. Anxiously eating up Early Reader feedback and editing my debut novel. No more then a couple weeks before I should start Pre-Orders and put out the first three chapters free as a promo. Wow, that’s crazy to type out.

  13. Well, now that my book's out to Beta Readers and Doomvengers is done, I keep having mod ideas. Already working on Heretic: Element Storm. Got pretty big plans so let's see how far that ends up being practical!

  14. I've stopped seeing the statuses on the front page. Did I do something? What happened?

    1. Misty


      Nope. They are moved in activity streams, but I think you found out already.

      Nah I totally managed to miss the Activity menu entirely. Thank you!

  15. Started sending the Beta manuscript of my novel to my Early Readers. Hoboy, that's both exciting and a little daunting.

  16. Well my big gameplay mod Doomvengers: Earth's Weirdest Heroes has just experienced its final release. Whew!



  17. Have to test exactly one minor thing and then I can put out the final version of Doomvengers. I've already got work going on the renovation of Heretic: Element Storm. I'm excited to get another Heretic mod out in the world.

  18. Last chance to be an Early Reader for my novel! Details here:



  19. Told myself I'm gonna FINALLY put out the final release of Doomvengers before moving on to revamping Element Storm in earnest. Got uncommon Villain spawns to replace Masterminds and Cyberdemons, and I'm pretty proud of all of e'm. However a lot of the code was awful so I've had to rewrite a lot to get it to work on the latest GZDoom!  I'm so close now! But so lazy!

  20. I've had an influx of Early Reader sign-ups, but there's still room! Sci-Fi! Action! Not really romance!



  21. More spam! Still need Early Readers for my novel. I swear it doesn't suck!



    1. Endless


      Hey Ventris, is good all the work you do about your novel, but have you tried advertise on more "specialized" pages in novels or science fiction? I think here in Doomworld would be a little bit more hard. I'm not complaining, in fact, I admire when a person follows his passion, writing is something that I love, so I wish you the best of luck.

      I've been branching out some. Did some actual legit advertising on Facebook, I post to Twitter, etc. The other obstacle with Early Reading is that you need people that won't screw you, which is a mite tough if you don't know them/don't share a community. But yeah it ain't just here by any means.

  22. Still need Early Readers for my debut novel! It totally opens with monsters in a science facility being blown apart with shotguns!



  23. Want to be one of the first to read my debut sci-fi novel? Apply to be an Early Reader!



  24. Just put out a call for Early Readers of my debut novel. It's in the Shadow Among Te Stars thread on Creative Works. Applyyyyy
