Shiny new servers, and a monkey on a mission!

You might have noticed that this blog fell suddenly silent. That’s because I decided to move my site to hosting, and forgot to mention that I was moving to some of my followers. Sorry about that! There’s quite a lot involved, and I sort of missed a step…

So! Yes, Clockwork Twist has not moved! The site url is the same, so if you visit, you’ll land on the new page automatically. How exciting! If I could implore you, please click on over to the new site, and re-subscribe to my blog.  If you haven’t noticed anything amiss, than please disregard this message.  As I mentioned, only some of my subscribers have been effected.

Alternatively, if you’d prefer to follow my posts on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, or by the RSS, fell free to do that as well with the buttons bellow.

Now, don’t get me wrong.  There wasn’t anything wrong with my old hosting service, and I hope there are no hard feelings, but I seem to have a great deal more control on this new service. Still, I’ve never moved a site before (obviously…) and I’m not sure that everything is exactly as it should be…

So, if you happen to notice anything else on the site as being odd or amiss at all, or (heaven forbid) hit a 404 or some such horror, please do let me know in the comments down below. (checks to make sure the comments are still available.) I’ll get to fixing any last minute issues as quickly as I can.

Meanwhile, it’s July, the th. You know what that means, don’t you? That’s right, the Jeffery Simian serial adventures have started!! The first post is up as of right now! Click here to go check it out.

And of course, keep your eyes peeled for the following entries as they appear, each Thursday at noon, pst, until mid September.

Happy adventuring!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY TWIST!! Have a free eBook!

Well, it’s official.  My beautiful boy is 3 years old today.  Well, the series is, anyway.  Now it’s time to party!  Break out the wine!  Light the birthday candles!  Start singing out of tune!  Run in terror from the skanky clown that some idiot hired.  Put on your silly paper hats, and let’s all toast our favorite little clockmaker’s good fortune!By Betsy Lastar

But best of all, it’s time to unwrap the presents!  As promised, the eBook of the Waking 2nd Edition  will be FREE all day today, on

Go grab a shiny new copy right now!

Share the link with your loved ones!  Share it with your enemies!  Share it with your postman!  Don’t let anyone miss out.

If you’ve already got a copy of the 1st Edition, you can download the new version for free as well.  Just follow the link, then scroll down and click the “download” link for the format you’d like.  On the following page, click the link for today’s date, Nov 17th.  

If you’ve missed the party, and are reading this after the 17th, you can still get the new version for free at any point, just so long as you already bought the eBook on Smashwords.

And don’t forget to submit any photos or fan-art, or anything you do to celebrate Twist’s big day!  (Comment here, Facebook, Goodreads, #CWTwist, whatever)  I’ll add everything I get to a special after-party post.  Here’s a super cute little comic strip I got just last night!  Thanks Betsy!!

Isn’t that just darling?  I also want to say thank you to everyone for celebrating with me!  This is the first year that I’ve thrown Twist much of a birthday party. I’m sure he would go bright pink with embarrassment at all of this hullabaloo.
