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
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!

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!
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!
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!

August 9, 2018: Now I get to have some fun...
Posted by JeffsFort
This is a temporary news post just so there will be some content here. Once the site is tied into the community's network, messages, news, announcements... will all be broadcast to the entire community at https://fortfamilyforums.com so its main purpose is to give the "Shack" a voice inside our network and its secondary purpose is to host the shack's work in a place where the owner has control.
Copies of the work that will be co-hosted on the BloodBank and True's Fandom have fully formatted copies of the stories that will adopt the theme of the site they will be displayed on. For fun, I've played with bringing back the original look and feel of these works making this "Shack" a bit of a Throwback :) Other sites have translated the site into other languages, I translate it into "Blast from the Past!" and yes, I am having fun doing it.
Stories not hosted on this site will link to the chapters on Gay Authors directly and when I have free time, I'll work on converting them as well to make an archive that could stand alone as a full website if you ever wanted it to. Right now it's a big toy that could be fun for the handful of people who could find it. Content from the existing "Shack" as well as past versions have been used to make this site a potential experience... At least that's my intent, LOL!
For the people who do find it, I'll make sure links to the GA site are easy to find :)
