When the Ceiling Came Down, or “So how was *your* Easter?”

So hey, gang! This is a weird post to write, but it's fundraiser time! As the story says, over the weekend a pipe burst in the ceiling and flooded the apartment. The ceiling fell... er... on me (an interesting experience -- and for the record, no concussion, but I do have bruised ribs and shoulder),… Continue reading When the Ceiling Came Down, or “So how was *your* Easter?”

⎇001JW Interviewing Leather Revisited: Forward

The story as it exists clearly has its fans (and its detractors, but that's as may be). However... it's *very* rough. Ragged. There are plenty of typos and bad choices. It needs editing at the very least before it could be published as either an eBook or as part of an anthology.

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™!

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”
