Let’s Gather Some Audience Information™!

Hey all! It's poll time! This is not "what Eric is working on next." Eric's writing a myth and editing a poem, then getting a datasheet out next. However, we've had a block of Banter Latte content come out over the course of Folio #1, and as we move into Folio #2 and beyond I… Continue reading Let’s Gather Some Audience Information™!

The Home Front: Homecoming: For Those Who Came In Late

Previously in The Home Front and "Homecoming #1-4:" Decades before the Age of Heroic Intent, the first costumed heroes and super heroes began to appear. The first of these Mystery Men -- and also also the last -- was Knight City's Adrian Wainwright, AKA the Golden Swashbuckler, who began his career in 1923 and retired in… Continue reading The Home Front: Homecoming: For Those Who Came In Late

Patreon: The Last Week of Folio #1

It's been a busy week over on the Patreon. I tried my best not to spam everyone with updates -- that way lies madness and people disliking you -- but it makes sense to catch people up as well as keep folks abreast of what's coming up next here on Banter Latte. Folio #1 is… Continue reading Patreon: The Last Week of Folio #1

Second Betas, or “We Have Always Been at War with Eastasia”

Part of Folio #1 is the second Beta of the actual "Interviewing Leather" novella, which raises an interesting point about the writing process. When I first wrote "Interviewing Leather..." it was 2007. My intentions for Justice Wing were very different than they have become over time. In fact, "Cannon," posted in first beta over the… Continue reading Second Betas, or “We Have Always Been at War with Eastasia”

Meet the new Banter Latte!

So, this was supposed to happen, oh, three years ago. See, three years back -- almost a year after things like Lovelace½ had gone on hiatus -- I was gearing up for a complete site redesign and an entirely new way of doing things. I'd actually done a ton of work reconciling my Justice Wing and Mythic Heroes… Continue reading Meet the new Banter Latte!

Five tweets of interest to those waiting patiently for Banter Latte’s return….

Doing actual prep-work for the Banter Latte return/restoral/phase III project. It includes *five* paid continuing stories.— Eric Burns-White (@demiurgent) June 25, 2014 This is in addition to five separate free continuing stories already in progress (no one will be charged to read more Lovelace 1/2 or Trey.) — Eric Burns-White (@demiurgent) June 25, 2014 //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js… Continue reading Five tweets of interest to those waiting patiently for Banter Latte’s return….

Admin: Putting Together a Miss (after the fact)

So I'm pretty sure there's supposed to be Interviewing Trey #11 sitting here, but I'm not seeing it on the site. Including in the background fiddly-bits. Did I dream queuing it to appear? I'm going to dig into this a bit. While I'm doing that, I'll figure out if I want to run it anyway, since... well, Interviewing… Continue reading Admin: Putting Together a Miss (after the fact)

The New Summer Schedule!

I know -- it always seems like we frontload this stuff in an orgy of posting. Well, I promise you all that's not actually happening. What is happening is a flurry of administrative tasks and getting the full system underway. Posting yesterday's myth was as much a test of the revised system as it was a… Continue reading The New Summer Schedule!

Adventures in Writing! The New Fall Schedule

Right, we're going to call this week, excepting the end of "Interviewing Leather," a vacation week. Which makes a little sense. I've done a lot of writing since June, and between that and the start of school, it's probably at least a little lucky my brain hasn't exploded from the heat. Next week, we'll launch… Continue reading Adventures in Writing! The New Fall Schedule
