Legacy Subscription will be Turned Off

Due to recent changed in JetPack and the Legacy WordPress Subscriptions, conflicts have arisen with my mailing list on Mailchimp and the optin forms that I use. As such, I will no longer be supporting the legacy subscriptions on my blog. If you received this message with the branded header for Black Wolf Editorial Services, then you are already on the new system, and all is good. If you got a message from WordPress (with a picture of my ugly mug), then you will need to sign up for the Mailchimp mailing list, or this will be the last email […]

Changes are afoot…

Some of my followers will already know that I have recently moved my email list to MailChimp, moving away from the WordPress engine for this particular feature. At the time I made the move, I had left certain WordPress features active, so my followers who had subscribed via their WordPress accounts could still get notification of my posts. However, recent changes to JetPack (the plugin that controls the WordPress subscription features) has meant that JetPack is now interfering with MailChimp. These changes are very recent (as in my site saw the updates to JetPack on the April 5th). I had […]

Holidays and Moving…

The year has whizzed by so fast and I do wonder where it has all gone. I’ve looked at so many manuscripts over this past year, some of them my own, but most of them not. So many stories that I can’t wait to see out there in the big world. Now the holiday season is upon us and many of us will soon be looking to what awaits us in the new year. In all the chaos, do remember to spend some time with your loved ones, both real and fictional. Holidays for me is when life slows down […]

You can find out more about the full series, and what is covered in each episode, here. This is only the first series. More are currently […]

Scrivener: Software for the Writer

Many writers spend endless hours writing their precious manuscripts using MSWord or some other equivalent word-processing program. In the initial writing phase, they encounter very little problems. Then editing begins. So too does the grumbling. The filesize increases dramatically and previous versions of certain chapters are lost. To move a chapter, the cut-and-paste hell takes over. Versions are sent out for review, resulting in hundreds of copies of the manuscript. (Exactly which one was the one I was working on?) Here’s the situation: I have NEVER liked MSWord. It stems back to my Master’s thesis where MSWord frequently moved my images off […]
