Out of the frustration with DriveThruRPG came something I could control — and it's always about control, isn't it? SEGMENT: SHO-CAUDAL has been the most satisfying, most organic, most spontaneous, and I knew that the whatever I decided to do would get into people's hands. My goal was 100 subscribers, and I have 9 subscribers, had 6 up-front, and another five single-copy buyers. Nowhere near the go and I've had to drop things to find some sources of money to cover the problems of new surgery, hiked medical costs, standard inflation (which the authorities say we aren't having, but they don't include food in their inflation calculation), and non-standard gouging from taxes, fees, services and the like. If I had the support from Jorune, I could focus on Jorune.
That means six things have been published in the last year, despite the problems with hardware, software and Joe's brain. Thoneport, Sholari, and four issues of Segment: Sho-Caudal. Six is good. I had been hoping for twelve, but six is good.
If you know someone who loved Jorune, I hope this is faithful to the spirit and make the world richer and more textured. I love going to Jorune for some time out, and I would like other people to find something interesting. But aside from three people who wrote a couple of emails, I have not heard or seen any response, good or bad.

Finishing up SEGMENT: SHO-CAUDAL #5 in the next two weeks, got back into ORFA for release (it will be a free product so I don't worry if people don't like how long it takes). I will get them edited and then release that one to begin on #6. I can do 16 pages in my sleep. I have to be awake for Tan Iricid and the next Sholari, but I can probably get those done. They may be full of typos, but I can do them.
