November 6, 2018: Three Miilion Total Views And Still Rolling
Posted by The Story Lover



Sometime yesterday while I was sleeping we broke the Three Million Total View Mark! We not only broke it we smashed it as the current number is 3,005,413 Total View Count. All of this has happened since the relaunch of the site on May 14, 2017, only 535 Days, amazing.

Thanks again to all of you wonderful readers for reading the stories on the site. A big thanks also to all of the wonderful authors whose stories are what attract you readers in the first place.

This site wouldn't be the success that it is without all of the authors, editors, and readers that keep the site growing. Thank you all very much, this site has exceeded my wildest dreams. Considering the fact that Uncle August gave me my site because he didn't like my email address! If he could only see it now. Uncle August, I will always miss you.

On to other news, thanks to those of you that have written with wishes for my better health, they are greatly appreciated. I am on the mend and hope to resume editing and posting tomorrow. I am slightly behind responding to emails, however, I hope to get caught up today.

Happy Reading,


November 4, 2018: My Site Updates Delayed a few days
Posted by The Story Lover

Dear Readers and Authors,

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I am postponing the updates that I had planned for this weekend. I am dealing with some unwelcome Chest and Head Congestion as well as some Intestinal Discomfort.

I am sorry for the delay, I am going back to bed. Hopefully, I will be posting no later than Tuesday. However, there will still be posts made by authors.



November 3, 2018: The End Of Daylight Saving Time Is Here!
Posted by The Story Lover



For those of you readers that are currently on Daylight Saving Time, it has come to its end, specifically at 1:59 AM tomorrow morning. At 2 AM tomorrow, we return to Standard Time. Unfortunately, since the 'clock' is falling back, that means we lose an hour sleep! frown I hope you enjoyed your extra hour of sleep.

So don't forget to set all of your clocks back before you go to bed tonight.

Happy Reading,

TSL ~Edited

October 31, 2018: A New Dragon Earl Short Story!
Posted by 'Goos'


Dear Readers,

TSL has created a travesty, he wrote a Dragon Earl Short Story without me can you believe it?

However, even I the mighty 'Goos' has to admit that he wrote it for a great reason, a reader wrote in asking for more Dragon Earl Universe because he really likes the scenes of flying on a dragon. I think my pal Jonah would agree with him on that.

If you have ever debated about writing to an author debate no more Frangol's Flight is an awesome reason to write to an author! See what can happen when you write to an author. 

Frangol, thank you very much for bugging TSL to write more about me, and may your dreams always come true!

'Til We Fly Again,
