I See That the Toy Soldier Website is Back Up . . .

. . . But moving plans continue anyway. It is a sorry state of affairs that it takes Webs more than two weeks to fix a massive, total-site problem, and the only reason why they did so is because somebody who is *paying* them complained. The forums have been discussing the sites since they first went down.


The moving plan is proceeding on schedule, or perhaps even a little ahead. The main page, the links to the novels, Book One and Book Two are up and running. I will need to figure out how to create a Gallery (something I have never done) to transfer the art, but that is still well ahead in the moving plans.

Big Changes in the Toy Soldier Website Upcoming

Posted on May 20, 2014 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (0)

You may have noticed that the website has been down for quite a while.

This appears to be some problem at the server that is hosting my site.  It seems to be affecting all of their sites that end in  And according to the forum, it has been going on for twenty-one days.

In light of this, and inspired by various other mishaps and incidents, I have decided that I am going to begin the process of closing the website ( and moving everything over to Wordpress (  This process should take about six weeks.

Phase 1: Move all novel pages over so that you can read and access the books (ETA about a week).

Phase 2: Move all art pages, which will likely undergo some reorganization due to format changes (ETA about a week).

Phase 3: Re-link all videos and if possible, video playlists (ETA about a week).

Phase 4: Copy over all blog entries.  These will be copied directly into the corresponding posts that I originally linked from the Wordpress blog to the blog pages on this site as if I had written them on the dates in question instead of copied them over.  I will also try to edit all posting dates to match the original date of posting to preserve continuity.  (ETA about two weeks).

Phase 5: Move whatever is left, update odds and ends such as unpublished drafts and updating links.  (ETA about a week).

In the meantime, I am still working on Brothers in Arms, and the next Spreecast will be Chapter 1 of Brothers in Arms, on May 25.

Thanks for your patience and your support!

All the News That's Print to Fit

Posted on March 17, 2014 at 12:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Hey folks, I just wanted to keep my fans & followers updated on the goings-on.

First off, I'm sorry but I'm suspending my readings for Brothers in Arms until April.  I'm just too busy; I am not yet finished the book and I am knee-deep in my edit for my non-fiction book, "The Witch's Eight Paths of Power," which is back from the copyeditor.  After this it goes for proofs, and then for print.  I'm sorry to disappoint you!

The Prologue is scheduled for April 6 and Chapter One for April 20 at the moment.  You can sign up for them at the links in text.

I have not been idle on Spelljammer work, though.  I'm still writing BiA steadily, and I've been working at Wildspace: the Spelljammer Fanzine.  There's some excerpts from my books there that relate to the Rock of Bral, this month's theme.  An excerpt from Sable's Privateers, "Between the Rock and a Hard Place," appeared at the first of the month, and yesterday an excerpt from A Few Good Elves, "The Elven Lieutenant's Unusual Hosts" appeared also.  There will be two more over the course of the month!

Thanks for being patient with me.  Talk to you soon!

New Blogs at Wordpress

Posted on February 11, 2014 at 9:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Hey all, I just wanted to let you know that I have created a blog mirror for this blog entry at Wordpress, so if you prefer Wordpress, you can keep updated there:  I will just be creating links back to this blog page here to save myself time, but I check my Wordpress more often than I do my Facebook so if you're like me, it's an option to keep updated.

Also, I am excited to announce that a good number of people in the Spelljammer community have come together to form the Spelljammer Fanzine on Wordpress!  If you want to read or contribute, find out how at the above link.
