After 5 months, my "Time & Tied" serial has concluded "Book 3", reaching Part 70. So I thought I'd post here for a few reasons.
1) Book 4 started this week! It's fully edited after many months of work; for those who don't know, the whole serial is a revised version of something I originally wrote from 2001-2009. I've created a new index page, if anyone wants to jump in, no need to start at Part 1: https://mathtans.wordpress.com/2016/11/28/resolution-index/
2) My statistics for November were terrible. I clawed past 200 page views (with 87 visitors), making it the 2nd worst month of 2016, only ahead of January. This despite having TWICE the number of weekly postings, because in October I shifted to Tues/Fri posts (of ~2k words) instead of a single Fri post (of ~4k words). So it IS my worst "views per post" month. And my last serial post of October (just over 4 weeks ago) has a mere *4* views, all on a website that's been running continuously with no breaks for 27 months (now at 177 posts).
Honestly, this is not a gripe, it's an attempt to make other people feel better. (I'm one of the most vocal people who is somewhere at the extreme opposite of the spectrum from Wildbow. My average star review is 3.5, it's not zero, really.) This is not even a cry for help, I already did that post a year ago (which is when I implemented all my indexes) though if you've got new ideas, sure. Along with trying to brighten your day by comparison, this is also an exercise in perseverance, or more likely stubborn thick-headedness. AND, this is a reason why you shouldn't just trust web statistics, because I did hear from one person (who originally came in via my guest post at "Legion of Nothing") who follows via RSS and thus doesn't appear in web hits. So I might have over 4 readers... it could easily be 8!
Oh, and the answer to the topic's "Can It Get Worse" is yes, it can always get worse. I have no real hope for December. I meant that as a double entendre with things getting worse for my characters. (Quick plug, Chartreuse, my bisexual character, actually gets a decent arc this book.)
3) Final reason for posting is to see if anyone actually knows of time travel message boards out there. I keep seeing more and more time travel on tv out there (and have been rather enjoying the show "Timeless") but know of no way to tap into it. Thanks for reading!
