For a long while I've felt the need to explain why I post my stuff in PDF format.
For me it's a night and day difference between posting my stories as texts versus PDF's. With PDF's I know my readers are seeing my stories formatted the way I want in an easier to read format. Plus they are viewable across nearly all platforms and an industry standard.
More explanation: posting my stories as a text is quite painful. After I've written and edited my story, I would have to format the story into the online text format. The biggest reason is that most art sites that allows text files don't recognize tabs. Thus I would have to go and put in returns in place for tabs. (That's why online texts have those spaces between paragraphs. It goes back to old HTML coding issues. To replicate tables in online coding is quite painful!) Plus, if I wanted to edit/revisit the story, I would have to deal with the word file, then go to the online text file and hunt down the section that needed updating. It was quite a long and involved process. Finally most art sites, including DA, have text file size limits. Because of that, I needed to break some of my stories up into parts just so I can post the entire story online
Well along the way I happen to get my hands on a PDF creation software that integrated into MS Word. With that software, it would create a PDF off of my word document preserving everything I've done exactly as I wanted it too. Plus I was able to post entire stories in a single file with no need to break them up. Finally revising my stories in PDF format is extremely easy. I just simply edit the word document, recreate it into a PDF, then replace the old file with the new one online. It was easy and seamless.
Finally PDF's are nearly universal across computer systems, browsers, and phone OS's. Even if your browser won't automatically display the PDF, all art sites include a download button where you can download it to your system and read it offline. Plus I know there's a few phone apps that allow you to read and store PDF's on your phone/tablet. (This is especially handy for RPG manual PDF's! What used to take up an entire bookshelf is now all in my iPad ready to access at any moment!)
On another front, I love all the new watchers and interest in my stories. Because of you I am resurrecting my Dragon Changes stories. I'm also writing up more Nanobot stories including a few fan requested transformations. Plus, I wrote another D&D story which I think my D&D fans will quite enjoy. Finally I've got a sequel to "The Intrepid Mystery" coming out as well.
Thanks for all your interest and be prepared for more good stuff to come.
