Heya, and welcome back to Joey’s Café! First of all, I apologize for my prolonged absence without prior notice. For one thing, I don’t believe in letting the internet know, when, how long, much less where I am gone for various reasons. Also, upon returning home I had some things to ponder before resuming my ongoing series.
As you may have gathered by now, I am taking my writing very seriously. It is my passion, but above that, I strive to become a professional writer by continuously learning and enhancing my craft. Also, I’ve come to cherish the internet as an excellent platform for my writing and other creative output. It is a vast and ever changing environment that allows for exciting new approaches to improve the experience for audiences and creators alike.
The question is, however, with all of these exciting possibilities, where do I, where does my work fit in? There is no easy answer to that and none of it holds true for eternity. With this in mind, I will probably be constantly tweaking and adjusting the shape and overall appearance of current and future content — all for the benefit of making the most of my art and creating the best possible experience for you and me.
Thus, I have started nudging my German website and this blog somewhat closer to each other. Meaning, Joey’s Café will be my “official” blog in the future–until I decide otherwise 😉
I will still be posting in English here, and there will be occasional excursions to purely Second Life related topics–but that’s just who ‘Joey, writer’ is: a writer who lives in the real and in the virtual worlds. Heck, my stories all take place in the virtual worlds even if they don’t look it.
It’s all about imagination!
Last not least, I am thinking of creating a Patreon page that would enable me to dedicate more time into my art while actually earning a living–and allow me to pass on some of the perks to you.
I have all kinds of ideas in mind. Like short stories from the world of Worlds Rising, signed paperback copies, pictures of characters, comics even, prints, printed shirts, mentions in the acknowledgements, characters named after you or your nickname… you name it!
So, what do you say? What would you like to see as benefits if you became my patreon?
Please, let me know in the comments or by mail, what your thoughts are on this. I am very much looking forward to hearing from you! <3
Other than that–Worlds Rising is back! Updates will resume in more bite-sized installments starting tomorrow, 15 August 2019. After that we will go back to the 10th-20th-30th schedule. If you will–I’ll see you there 🙂
The show will go on!
