First piece of news: I bought my domain name. That means you can find me at amynotdorft.com with no wordpress at the end. Yay! Otherwise, I received an interesting update the other day about a project and because of that I've been really busy these past few days making promo stuff (hence the late post). Thank you for … Continue reading Weekly Update – 28/11/2016
So first and foremost... yes. It is finished: If you click the above image it will take you to my latest horror story - just as requested. I would love to hear what people think of this one. It was inspired by a novel I wrote back in April for Camp NaNoWriMo and I would … Continue reading Weekly Update – 19/11/2016
Yep... so that date up there is a bit of a lie. Today is actually Sunday, November 13th but technically it's an update for last week that should have come out yesterday and I'm a horrible person. Alright, so this week has been a disaster - sick kid and personal health problems - so I am admittedly … Continue reading Weekly Update – 12/11/2016
So the results of the poll are in and it looks like Horror is the winning genre. That means I'll have a brand new horror short story for you next week! I'm not sure about the exact day yet, but likely closer to the end of the week. I have been playing with a couple ideas … Continue reading Weekly Update – 4/11/2016

There were two awards to be won: The Reader's Choice award (determined by votes) and the Ambassador's Choice award (decided by the Wattpad Ambassadors heading the community). Thanks to … Continue reading Hallowe’en Contest and What Next?
This has been an exciting week for me! A month or two ago I submitted Secrets and Skin to Web Fiction Guide - "a community-run listing of online fiction." It was finally accepted on Monday and since then I have had a lot of new traffic. To all new readers - welcome! Thank you for checking out Secrets … Continue reading Weekly Update – 28/10/2016
I want you to imagine something for me: Your skin feels numb. It's hardly noticeable at first -- the shower doesn't feel too hot, you don't need a sweater when everyone else does. Then it starts getting worse. You can't really feel anything. There is pressure and some distant recognition of touch, but no real sensation. Why? You … Continue reading Imagine This.
So what happened this week? A new story came out yesterday, and with it an entire new option up there on the menu bar. In my last post I described the Iyashikei genre, mentioning that my husband had challenged me to write something with similar qualities. While writing this story I realized that it would not be complete … Continue reading Weekly Update – 21/10/2016
Sometimes we need a break: Curling up under the covers and watching a movie when we're sick. Reading a book in the bath with a glass of wine after a long day at work. Listening to a podcast in the dark after an anxiety attack. Binge-watching a favourite show with a carton of ice cream and a … Continue reading Iyashikei and Worlds That Heal
Happy Saturday everyone! So I'm going to start posting Weekly Updates with links to everything that is released each week along with any news or plans. These will usually take place on Fridays, but I took yesterday as a sick day. (Which is also why Secrets Chapter 23 came out a day late. Sorry.) So … Continue reading Weekly Update 15/09/16
