Daily life: Sorting, researching stories, and a chronology for the Toughs stories

"This morning four boxes containing not quite all of my worldly possessions arrived at my doorstep. Less than two months via cargo ship is not too bad. The funny thing is that I'd almost forgotten what was in them. There were some things that I was very happy to see (my Icelandic novels, a sweatshirt, a pair of light pyjama bottoms, the tin containing my spare buttons) and other things that only made me think 'huh, why did I ship that across the Atlantic?' There's a strong argument for donating anything that you're not thrilled to see after two months living out of a suitcase."

Reply to Twicet:

Thanks for the reminder that I need to update the Toughs timeline to include chronological links to all the Toughs stories. I also have to correct the dating of the earliest stories; I managed to make a mistake in my dating cheat sheet that placed all of those stories five years off their actual dates.

Not to mention getting Merrick's name wrong through the entire second part of "Rain." (*Sigh.*)

In the meantime, I've put the Toughs chronology at the end of this post. The series page for The Three Lands has those stories listed in chronological order.

News on my Smashwords e-books, Turn-of-the-Century Toughs, and "Love in Dark Settings Omnibus"

Details about my new pay-what-you-can-afford pricing at Smashwords.

A map of the Turn-of-the-Century Toughs world.

Also, I've learned that, as of October, Lulu will no longer sell digital files (other than ePub and PDF). This means that all of my Lulu e-books, audio books, and booktrailers will no longer be available - most notably Love in Dark Settings Omnibus.

Fortunately, I'd already planned to publish all of my fiction as multiformat e-books this summer. However, if you'd like to buy a zipped HTML edition of all the fiction and nonfiction at my website (which is what Love in Dark Setting Omnibus is), now's the time to do so.

Turn-of-the-Century Toughs geography and timeline updated

As you can see from the post below, I'm working on a new High Bookshelf series. (Actually, a very old series; Prison City stems from a story idea I had back in junior high.) I've therefore updated the geography and timeline sections of the Turn-of-the-Century Toughs site.
