December 2, 2018: Ooops...
Posted by JeffsFort

Hi everyone,

I was going to tiptoe off to bed and hope no one noticed that I found another mistake in posting past work on The Shack Mirror site. I might have been able to pull it off if it didn't affect True's Fandom and the Fort Family Community site though ;)

Anyway, Comicality posted a brand new chapter of "Unforgettable" and it is included with all the new postings of old work on the same story. So, if you have been following the story elsewhere, Chapter 22 is available now! If you have been following it on the Shack Mirror Site or True's Fandom... Chapters 8 through 22 are up and ready for a group of insomniacs to tackle. Enjoy...

November 27, 2018: *Left Without Words* Is Back! Enjoy! :)
Posted by Comicality

A brand new chapter has just been posted! So, if you're fans of Shane and Dimitry...then smile for me, K? And let me know what you think of the new chapter if you get a chance! I'd love to hear from you guys!

I've been answering a TON of emails lately, and I'm going to try to answer more tonight if I can swing it! :P So...if you sent me a note, expect an answer back soon! K? in the next few days if I can find enough time!

I appreciate every single word, and if you're going through hard times, I will do what I can to be there for you. People will tell you...that's kinda my 'thing'. But it takes time! So please bear with me for a while longer. I'm still recovering from the flu and the Thanksgiving holiday! I still want to help...but I've only got so many hours in the day to work with, just like everybody else. So...if YOU couldn't do it, yourself...don't expect me to have any secret way to do it either. K?

But I'm trying. I'm trying my /hardest/! That's as much as I can give, I hope that it's enough,

Enjoy the new chapter! And I hope to seezya soon!

Come by the Shack forum if you get a chance! I'm finally able to get back to being 'me' again! Hehehe! Movies, music, games, and just random silliness! Introduce yourself and join the party!

Then, we met, and everything changed, the cynic has become the converted, the skeptic, an ardent zealot.” -*E.A. Bucchianeri*

November 25, 2018: Gone From Daylight: Appearing For Black Friday!
Posted by Comicality

I hope you guys had a good holiday! :)

I most certainly did! Despite me being really nervous about having it at my house this year, and a last minute battle with the flu...everything went to plan! It was GREAT! Everybody had a blast, the food was delicious, it was awesome to see all of the family together at once...it was just perfect! I LOVED it!

Anyway, I didn't think I was going to have to work on Friday, but...I did. And I came home wanting nothing more than to sleep off some of the exhaustion leftover from Thursday! Hehehe, but that doesn't mean the show won't go on! A brand new chapter of "Gone From Daylight" went up for 'Black Friday'! So check it out when you get a chance and let me know what you think! K?

(Click here to go directly to the chapter!)

I am SO happy that you guys enjoyed the November release of Imagine Magazine this month! Yay! It feels good to know that you are enjoying the content and are submitting more material of your own to be included!

We're building quite the army over here! :P

Also, thanks to all of you guys who grabbed some of my ebooks this month! Wow! Hehehe, there have been some surprises over the past few weeks in terms of sales, believe me! THANK YOU!!!

Alrighty...I'll leave you to your reading and stuff now! Enjoy! I hope to seezya soon!

PS- Sorry about the lapse in emails. The holiday took a lot out of me this week. I'll get back to you guys as soon as I can! K? Hehehe, don't start feeling all self conscious on me. I HATE sleep...but I have to sleep, regardless. It's a part of my survival. LOL! But, I'd get around it if I could. I swear!

November 21, 2018: Apologies to the Community
Posted by JeffsFort

Hi Everyone from the new Mirror site to "Comicality's Shack Out Back"!

As you can clearly see, the new site is up and running at full speed and now even communicates news and new chapters to our family's hub at http://fortfamilyforums.com which is awesome. I realize that some of you (actually a decent number of you) found the site early on. To those of you who have been getting your Comsie fix in a retro-looking site early, I hope you are enjoying the experience. Sure it doesn't look exactly like the Shack of many years ago but as a fan myself, I was just hoping to bring back a little of the familiar aspects of the old site's character within our custom built story management system (SMS) designed by our own Akeentia. We would love to get some feedback from you all about what you think of this project. I had lots of fun mixing the old and new to create this mirror site and I hope you have as much fun exploring and reading some of the best literature on the web on it.

As for the apology, it appears as though I connected it to the community a day too soon as I have found a hand full of chapters that I missed. This means I will be adding them and yes, they will flood the community "New Chapters" feed a little.  Unfortunately, other projects knocked me off track a little with this site so I lost my place and will do my best to get it corrected today. Then we will be doing our best to keep the Fort Family posted when new work is made available. Remember, If you prefer reading on the Gay Authors forum, this can also serve as a reminder that you need to get over there to do some reading. Cool?

Ok, enough slacking... I gots work to do :)

*HUGZ* Have Fun!

November 19, 2018: Getting things back in order before Thanksgiving!
Posted by Comicality

Let me start off by thanking you guys for being so patient and understanding with me for the past week or two while I was struggling through a particularly nasty flu virus! UGH! I don't get sick very often, but when I do...I am the biggest baby! LOL! It's true. Any virus strong enough to take me down ends up being enough to have me bedridden and utterly miserable for DAYS!

So, if I seemed a bit 'absent' lately, that's just me trying to get myself back in order before the Thanksgiving holiday! it's actually at my house this year, and this is my first big family Thanksgiving. Well, I mean, at my place, that is. My mom and I usually had to drive for hours and hours to come visit family at someone else's house. But this time, it'll be here. And everything has to be spotless! And I've got things all cleaned up and ready for company. We've got a big family, so it should be fun!

Wish me luck!

That aside, I haven't been slacking too much on my 'Comsie-Work'. Promise!

Last week, I did post a massive, double sized, chapter of "Billy Chase"! And big THANKS to all of you guys who commented on it and sent love and support for the new addition! So be sure to go and check it out if you haven't seen it yet! K? You won't want to miss it!

Click here to go to the Forum!

Also, THANK YOU for the feedback on the newest chapter of "Savage Moon", and for the huge surge in purchases at the Comicality ebook section! You guys are incredible! I'm so grateful! Thanks! I hope to make you proud in the weeks to come! And thanks for the new subscribers to the Youtube account as well! We are creeping towards 600 subs now! So be sure to share it with your friends! I'm kinda anxious to see how many folks will join in now! Keep 'em coming!

Also, I am posting a new 'Daydream Short' story on the Library in a few minutes! It's called "Naughty Click", and it is the short story for the November issue of Imagine Magazine! Now, I know that we usually post on the 15th of every month, but the delay is 100% MY fault this month! K? I've been trying to get stuff in order and I screwed it all up by trying to do a million things at once. So, you guys can blame me on that one. BUT...I didn't expect the newest issue of Imagine Magazine to be up and ready quite so fast! But, as always, I'm in league with miracle workers who accomplish things MUCH faster than I can! So thanks to them for being Shack patriots on this one! MWAH!!!

The newest issue of Imagine is now live and online for your enjoyment! Just click here to check it out. New additions from VampireMystic, Lindon Westzer, Jeffsfort, and our featured author for the month of November, Jules Porter! So check it out, and let these authors know what you think when you get the chance! Cool?

That's it for right now! I'm playing catch up in a major way tonight, and there will be more coming your way this week! Cool?

Laters! And thanks again for tossing rotten eggs at me for being sick. Hehehe, trust me...I'd MUCH rather be talking to you guys instead.

Take care!

October 16, 2018: Happy...ummmm...
Posted by Comicality

...what day is it? Hehehe!

Almost Tuesday! Ok! Lost my bearings for a moment there! :P

I wanted to say hello and send some good vibes your way tonight! Thanks for being so patient with me while everything was getting that special Comsie polish that you've come to know and love from any of the new releases that come your way. I always make sure that I can give you the best that I've got, and nothing less. But it DOES take time, and I'm thankful to have you guys wait it out with me. You're the best!

SO...the newest issue of Imagine Magazine was released early this morning, and it is MASSIVE! This is the biggest magazine offering that we've had yet, and the issues to follow this one already have new talented authors lining up for 2019! I can't tell you how amazed and how HAPPY I am to see this project be such a success! Thanks to all of you guys who have been sending in submissions, sending in feedback and compliments, and all those who have been working behind the scenes to put it all together! This month was an exhaustive effort, to say the least! But it was SO worth it!

I can honestly say that this is one of the issues that I'm MOST proud of! It's everything I ever dreamed the online magazine would be and more! So don't miss out on the elaborate buffet that we've put out there for you guys to nibble on! Hehehe!

Big thanks to MrM, who was an absolute PATRIOT, with new material for this October issue! Also, chapter two of "Lincoln, The Family I Never Expected" from our newest author, Lindon Weztser! Check those out! Our featured author of the month is Owen Wendel! And he's written his own GFD vampire spinoff series, that will continue in future issues as well! So check out his story "GFD: Life Goes On", as well as my one on one interview with him about his writing and his plans for future chapters! 

All of these...plus this month's Daydream Short story, "Come Over", my favorite horror short films from 2017/2018, the usual 'feel good' Imagine articles, and much more! The magazine is in full swing now, and it's only going to get better from here on out! So if any of you guys want to jump in and be a part of this rapidly growing empire...drop me an email at Comicality@webtv.net so we can set you up with a spot! K? I'd be happy to see what you've got! We want to expose the world to as much new talent as possible! So if you're looking to add to your fanbase and get a spotlight on your story...say the word. And I'll see what I can do! K?

(As with every issue...there's a period of adjustment behind the scenes. So there may be a few glitches here and there over the next few days. But the experts at Imagine are working on them as you read this! So if anything seems a little bit off...just check back in a day or two, and I'm sure it'll be fixed by then. K?)

Also, HUGE thanks for the newest subscriptions to the ComicalityShack YouTube account!!! Yikes! We're getting thre or four new subscribers a WEEK now! Already at 552 subscribers! LOL...look out 'Pewdiepie'! I'm coming for ya! (Psh...shut down)

Anyway, check out the new Halloween issue of Imagine Magazine when you get a chance! Imagine-Magazine You won't be disappointed!

The revolution is here, ladies and gentlemen! And life is grand!

Gotta run! And I'll seezya soon!

Oh yeah...I'm having a scheduled public chat some time soon! I'd love to talk to you guys in real time more often! I just need to get my work
schedule and find a time where I can chat with you guys here in the States as well as overseas simultaneously. Which is a lot harder to figure out than you guys may think. But EVERYBODY is welcome to join! So keep an eye on your email to get the date and time! Let's get together and have some fun! :P

More emails are coming as well! I just need to get my head screwed on straight!

September 30, 2018: Notice to our Faithful Readers
Posted by JeffsFort

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to send out a quick notice to let you all know that as a part of our attempt to keep our hosted sites on fast, reliable, and up to date servers, we will be migrating our sites to brand new equipment with up to date software, including an upgraded operating system. We anticipate no operational downtime for our visitors but where we are physically moving, there may be a very short time where DNS servers may be pointing to the old server even after the new servers are brought online. 

If you were planning to do a marathon reading session, go right ahead as the only change that may be noticeable would be sites responding slightly faster than usual. By Thursday if you hear nothing from us then it will be back to business as usual for us behind the scenes and you will see progress return to normal. 

We will advise if this schedule changes as the request to greenlight the move is being placed tonight.

Here's to as many reliable years on newer equipment.

September 17, 2018: Happy Sunday, folks!
Posted by Comicality

I'm not going to drag this out for too long, as I'm having a few problems with power outages on my end. Small ones, nothing major. And my laptop battery keeps working, but my router and internet connection vanishes on me, which means lost work and wasted time. Luckily, we only got lightly 'brushed' by the effects of Hurricane Florence, but it still makes for a messy weekend. Best of wishes to our Shackers in Florida and the Carolinas who had a much more severe experience with the storm. Be safe!

Yesterday was September 15th! And, as you know, the 15th of every month brings you a brand new issue of the Shack's online magazine, 'Imagine'! I certainly hope you guys enjoyed the new additions, articles, and stories, for the month of September! (We're getting better at this! Hehehe!) So jump in whenever you like, and feel free to let me know what you think at Comicality@webtv.net when you get an opportunity! All of the usual suspects are included in this issue, including a fabulous new series by this month's featured author, Lindon Weztser called, "Lincoln, The Family I Never Expected"! Followed by an interview that goes in depth into the story's theme and creation, and what you guys can look forward to next! Welcome to the Imagine family, Lindon!

Also, brand new chapters of "The Seashell", "Predators: 9-14-9x", and "Brandon Smiling"! (I made a mistake with the 'Brandon' chapter, but I will get that fixed up as soon as possible! But if you haven't read the series yet, use this time to catch up! Hehehe, it'll be worth it!) Coming up next will be our special 'Halloween Issue', which I'm really excited about! Some people go crazy for Valentine's Day, others for Christmas...but me? I'm a Halloween junkie! All the way! So turn the lights out on October 15th, and look for more Imagine craziness to come!

(https://imagine-magazine.org/)

As ALWAYS...Imagine Magazine is looking for more submissions, short stories, series, articles about everything to LGBT youth, to movies and music, to book reviews, or anything that you can offer to help us out with the effort! We'd LOVE to have ya jump on board! So drop me an email and let me know what you've got to show me! Cool? ((Hugz)) In advance!

Also, this month's short Daydream story, "We're Not Telling", has just been posted tonight as well! So definitely give it a look, and leave a comment if you can! Expect a new short story of young love, infatuation, and experimentation, with every monthly issue! And huge thanks for the compliments and feedback that you guys have given me so far! Love you lots for it!

(http://www.voy.com/17262/)

Alright, I'm going to get out of here before the lights blink out on me again! Hehehe! But take care! I love you all! And it's good to be back in touch! Seezya soon!
