July 17, 2017: Happy birthday to meeeeee...
Posted by JeffsFort

Yup, I got you all a present for my birthday. I know, I shouldn't have. LOL!

Actually, since I took today off work and had some free time to play around; I decided to put an ending on a short story I started a few months back. The story spawns from a kid who hit me up for change in a local Transit Station. Most of it is true, a bit of it made up to round out a story I can't possibly know all the angles to but, it was something that touched me that I wanted to share.

The next time someone asks you for help, how will you respond?

Look for "The Mezzanine" in the Short Stories menu or along with my other works

Until the next update - *HUGZ*

July 15, 2017: Just checking in...
Posted by JeffsFort

Hi Everyone!


Wanted to check in and make sure everyone had fun and stayed safe over the holiday. I spent some quiet time with good friends here at the house and then the rest of the day with my on-line family. You would think that could be pretty dull but, we always have fun. Over the past couple of weeks, I have received quite a few emails asking questions, commenting, complimenting and even complaining about the Finale of "A Penny on the Train Tracks" and my second work within the ever expanding universe of our friends within the "Clan Short" which has always had a life of it's own. Based on some of the feedback, I may actually need to add to our F.A.Q. page under the features section here on the site. Keep an eye out for updates. If I do a huge one, I'll let you know with an announcement, otherwise; periodically keep an eye on that section for changes. (I heard you "MW", unfortunately updates in that section don't turn up under "New Chapters" automatically simply because they aren't chapters. I'll try to remember to bring it up at the next meeting and see if we can come up with an option of some sort ;)

My plans for the immediate future though include an almost completed chapter 17 of "Sentenced to Life", a couple of short stories that kinda rattled out of my head thanks to some real life situations in the new city I live in and a couple of ideas which need to remain in my head for the moment so everything else doesn't end out taking a back seat as is often the case when I'm involved. Thank-You so much for contacting me and for all of the encouragement that has actually overwhelmed me a little since my return. (In a good way, no worries!)

So until I have some real news, I'll get back to work and remember, if you have questions, comments, compliments and even (constructive) complaints; we all love to hear them so don't be shy. Your feedback is often the only "paycheck" an author receives for his work. (I know based on the last batch that I got, I really want to make you all happy with a new chapter soon!)

Until the next update - *HUGZ*

July 3, 2017: Independance Day!
Posted by JeffsFort

I hope everyone has some cool plans for July 4th. Some time with friends or family, cookouts and gatherings, fireworks and local events... It's a great day to get out and have fun and to celebrate our nation's independance as a huge, united family. Whatever your plans, I hope you make the best of your day and above all else, be safe.

I have no updates to report today for the site but can report that the next chapter of "Sentenced to Life" is taking shape, believe it or not. Soon we will be able to get a glimpse of what happened at our AI division after the attack forced the entirety of Clan Short to pull together. This viewpoint has been on hold for a very long time and finally, it's coming together. I can't set a date yet but, I'll do my best to make it soon.

Until the next update - *HUGZ*

June 28, 2017: A new site feature!
Posted by JeffsFort

Hi Guys!

Just a quickie to let you know that our site designer is always busy in the background working on functionality. Often, it will be changes in the background that we can slip in without anyone really noticing but, I think this one is worth bringing your attention to. If you click on the "Stories" link above, it takes you to a page listing each and every story listed. A long scrolling page that goes on forever... Well, Akeentia has noticed that on some sites, you could scroll for a week (winks at the Cafe and Story Lover's Home) before finding the story that you are looking for so, he added a sort feature at the top of the page. If you want to read "Flight of the Destiny", click on "F" and it takes you right to it.

Seriously, I love this site and it's framework more than any other site I've ever maintained, and I hope you all agree that his hard work is really paying off :)

Thanks Akeentia!!!
