July 5, 2022: *GFD: King's Order* Chapter Two!
Posted by Comicality

A happy 4th of July to everybody! Whether you celebrate it as a holiday or not! Who needs a reason to be happy, anyway? Hehehe!

I wasn't expecting my family to really be around this weekend, but I should have known better. Sorry...I'm such a Chicago boy! We make PLANS! You know? Like a week in advance! "Let's get together next week and do 'blah blah blah'! Whereas, around here with family, it's like, "I'm on my cell phone, I'll be there in ten minutes! Let's hang out!" Grrrrr! Maybe I've got stuff to do today on my own or...? Whatever. Fuck it. Come on by.

Anyway, I guess it's a good thing. So I shouldn't complain. I love my family. Just...need a game plan sometimes so life doesn't get thrown all into chaos every other week.

I'm keeping this short today, and wanted to let you guys know that the "Gone From Daylight" spinoff, "King's Order", is now up on the site in the "GFD: Worlds" section! (GFD: King's Order @ SHACKOUTBACK.NET) The vampires that inhabit the world that I buit for the main story have been around for a very VERY long time! And they all have their own stories throughout many different eras in human history! This is an introduction to Celwyn's story from a more Medieval period in history! So check it out, and let me know what you think when you get a chance!

It's storming like crazy here right now! And I hope it keeps up all night! LOL! I'm so done with fireworks. Once in a while, they're fun...but enough already. Bright colors, loud noises...I get it! Can we stop now? Geez!

I'm getting my stuff ready for the July issue of Imagine Magazine already! Hopefully, I'm a little bit ahead of the game this time around, so I won't hold everybody up like I did last month! ( And there are more stories coming this week! So stick around! Hehehe, have fun with us!

HUGE thanks to everybody who grabbed one of the ebook versions of my stories this past month! I hope the extra bits that I tossed in there and the re-edited versions were worth the purchase! More to come soon! So keep your eyes on the Comicality Ebook section this Summer! It's sure to be a wild one! ( And thank you for keeping me afloat with your donations to the account! I would have crumbled and fallen all to pieces a long time ago if it wasn't for you guys! Thank you for the love! MWAH!

That's all for now! But I'll seezya soon! K? Take care! And love always!

Posted by Comicality

Keeping this one quick, as this is going to be a massively busy day for the Shack Out Back! ::Giggles:: It's not my fault! I swear! I live in a place where a lot of people have, like...NOTHING to do! In Chicago...EVERYBODY has something to do! We make *PLANS*! Hello???

Anyway, I was just informed that I'm spending time with family this weekend without warning, but I'll be here as much as humanly possible, because they could have given me a game plan ahead of time. My spontaneity has limits, you know? :P

Anyway, a brand new chapter of the "Picture Me And You" series has just been posted on the site! I'm working hard to catch up with some changes that have been made, but I always have a backup and an alternative to get you guys new stuff as fast as I possibly can! Cool? Give me a learning curve, I'm not good at this techy stuff. The creative side of the brain is what I'm working with, nine times out of ten. Hehehe!

(Picture Me And You @

THANKS to those of you who sent in feedback and donated to the account on the site! As always, everything is private, and I truly appreciate the love and support! So thanks, you guys! And thanks for those of you who grabbed some of my ebooks as well! More are on the way! So check out the Ebook section when you get a chance! Up next? "Safeguard" and "Boys Of Widow Lake: Depths Of Devotion"!


That's it for now! But you'll hear more from me today! Hehehe! I'm going to stay on schedule, family be damned! :P And come by and have some fun with us on the Shack forum if you get a chance! We'd love to meet you! There are a lot of new fans popping up these days! So welcome to the asylum! And have a blast!


Gotta run! But I'll seezya soon! More emails coming this weekend! So I'll talk to you then! Laters!

June 28, 2022: Secrets Always Come To Light...
Posted by Comicality

Howdy, everybody! Hehehe! I hope you guys are all still giggling and enjoying life! I definitely am, rough patches and all!

Let me start out by thanking everybody again for the super generous donations to the account to help me out in my time of need! Love you lots! And it has helped me out soooo much! Those little emergencies cost so much. Hehehe, and I can only eat so many ramen noodles before I begin to lose my fuckin' MIND! So thanks for being my angels! :)

That being said, the circus is back open for business tonight! Starting with a brand new story called, "GFD: Ammo Nation"! As Justin's presence becomes more obvious to other vampires both in daylight and in darkness...preparations are being made for what could be a serious upheaval in the near future! His secret won't be secret for much longer. But it's not like he wasn't warned ahead of time, hehehe! This is where all of the stories, past, present, and future, begin to intersect in a major way! So check out this first chapter (There are only two) to see what's going on! Let me know what you think whenever you get a chance! ((Hugz)) In advance!

I'm not exactly sure what's going on with GayAuthors at the moment, but I can't post the text for any new stories at the moment. I'm asking for some assistance on this, and as soon as I get it worked out, I'll be putting it there too. But, if you want to read the new story right now, it'll be in the Comicality Library on my site! K?


And, while you're there...come and have some fun with us on the Shack's main forum too! just music, and movies, and cute boys, and a ton of giggles! We're a family! So come on over and kick your feet up whenever you want to relax. :P


Alright, that's it for now! Have fun! And thanks for the ebook support, as well! Every last penny helps! And there will be more ebooks in a week or so! So stick around! You won't want to miss out! I always make those better than the originals! I always want to do my best for you guys, and for everybody who needs an example of what joy could be like in this life...if only you hold onto it. You know?


Seezya soon! And may the force be with you!

June 26, 2022: After many delays... BoL New Chapter!
Posted by AC

Hey all!

I'm about to post the first part of a two-part chapter for Brotherhood of Love! Between real life and certain characters who don't know when to slow down, the chapter became too long to post as one!

Within a few minutes, I'll be posting Brotherhood of Love Chapter 8A ... and I plan on posting 8B sometime tomorrow night.

What should you expect? Well, DJ, Tanner, and Chek are trying to regain control of the sudden changes in their lives... which could possibly happen if their sons let them! Fortunately, a few familiar faces from the other Orlando bases have noticed, and they are trying to assist in giving structure to Clan Wagner.

I have purposely picked a split point which doesn't leave you hanging, so as I verify everything in Part B is ready to post, you can read Parrt A without needing to break out pitchforks to make me hurry up!

I hope that you enjoy the new chapters!

June 22, 2022: Imagine Magazine #85! (And other stuff!)
Posted by Comicality

Well, hello there, Shackers!!! XD

It has been a week or two, I know, but I wanted to catch you all up on what's been going on and deliver some more goodies for your entertainment! Deal?

First off...I know that many of you may not be active on any of the Shack forums right now, and might have missed it...but I recently had a bit of an 'episode' with my health, and had to be rushed into urgent care to get things worked out and recover. So my interactions have been severely limited this month so far, and I am quickly catching up to get this train back on the tracks. But I love you all, and it's good to be home again where I belong! Hehehe! Mwah!

Unfortunately, everything has been thrown a few days back from my original plans, but despite the delays throwing everything out of whack...the show must go on! And that begins today with the newest issue of Imagine Magazine! This is for the month of June, and it is dedicated to 'Pride' month, as well as welcoming our new mascot, Adam! Hehehe, so drop by and check out the stories and articles that are waiting for you! I wish I could have added even more, ::Shrugs:: And don't forget to hit that green 'Up Vote' button at the bottom of every page to let our hard working authors know that you love them as much as they love you back! Cool? :P


Also, HUGE thanks for the email congrats to commemorate the Shack's Anniversary online on June 19th! We are officially in year 25 now, and this is one of the biggest projects and most dedicated efforts that I've ever taken on in my entire life! And you know what? Every last moment of it has been worth it! So thank you for a quarter CENTURY'S worth of love and support, you guys! The celebration has been pushed back to this weekend...but I'll be ready! Will you?

And THANK YOU for the donations to the account as well! Best anniversary presents ever!

Alright...let me get my P's and Q's in order here! And I'll seezya this weekend! K? Take care! And stay beautiful!

Yeah...sometimes I have to deal with some of my own inner emotional pain by getting a few thins off of my chest. But, once it's's done. So I ust have to check that off of my list of thins that I need to get rid of in order to be a functional human being in everyday life.

I'm NOT a slacker! I swear! If you can find an author that works harder than me online, I'd love to meet 'em! ::Giggles:: I'm a LEGEND with my work ethic, dammit!!!

As promised, I'll be going ahead with my live launch party for How I Live Now. I've got physical copies of the book to give away, and I'm thrilled to say I have the paperbacks. So, I plan to do a live stream event on Saturday to celebrate. I'll be giving away copies of How I Live Now, some signed artwork and whatnot. The event details are below.
