MW2_usa_192Just a quick note today; as we work our way through the copyediting for S3B3: A Wind in the Night, some vendors are already making it available for pre-order. In addition, the cover for Barb’s next volume in the Mist-Torn Witches series has been finalized… along with the back-blurb / cover copy.

S3B3_usa_192Have a peek at what is to come; you can find them both in the “Books” section at, which is still undergoing more slow and careful transformations. Report any troubles you have there through the “Contact” section, though be aware that having JavaScript enabled is necessary for most of our site.

In the near future, there will come a few cosmetic makeovers for the site and some of its social system satellite pages. Some accessory content at Barb’s old site also still needs to be merged over. There should not be any interruption of services / news out of

S3B3_usa_150In other words, if you have not done so already in following Barb, time to switch over to

There are still tasks to complete in this transition; this includes more content at Barb’s site to be merged over. All of her book related information is now in the “Books” section at

Final setup for Barb to publish her regular article offerings over at their combined site are under way. Within a week or so, thought after they both complete copyedits for S3B3: A Wind in the Night, Barb will pick up where she left off with regular commentaries and such article series as “Writer’s Corner”… over at

#fantasybooks #fantasy #nobledeadsaga #nobledeadseries #misttornwitches #nobledead

12848_rss_atomWe have begun changing our news distribution feeds. Don’t panic! Our feeds will continue through this Friday, but our new direct feeds are now available.

48_rssIf you follow Noble­Dead­.org and/or Barb­Hendee­.org through RSS/Atom feeds, go to Noble­Dead­.org (only) to find the new links in our right-hand column under “Follow ‘’ You Way.” Change the linked URLs in your preferred news readers now to avoid missing anything. The feeds through will be discontinued on Friday.

Followers of our Social System Pages

The RSS feed is also how we distribute articles to 95% of our social system pages. We will connect the new feeds into those pages on Friday as well. You do not need to do anything unless you follow a page linked to Barb­ If so, time to switch over to social pages linked to Noble­ instead, where Barb will continue her known articles, commentary, and series into the future.

SITE UPDATE: Direct RSS/Atom Feeds

#nobledeadsaga #misttornwitches #barbhendee #fantasy #fantasybooks

favicon_128128In our careful steps for moving content from Barb­Hendee­.org over to Noble­Dead­.org, there are other changes being made. This coming Friday (July 16th, 2013), we will discontinue using for RSS/Atom feeds and deliver such directly from (only).

NOTE: This will not directly affect anyone following through its linked social system pages.

Here’s what else you need to know, whether you currently follow and/or…

Serving up the Hash


#nobledead #nobledeadsaga #nobledeadseries #misttornwitches #vampirememories

This is a brief test of new (and old) hashtag developments on several of our linked social systems, now including Facebook. Honestly, we do not expect this to amount to much, but in the online battle for advertising, we must try anything…

Site Update: A Merger to Come…

128favicon_128We are in the process of moving content from Barb­Hendee­.org over to Noble­Dead­.org. You can now find Barb’s novels for The Mist-Torn Witches series and the Vampire Memories series in the “Books” section of Considering that Barb’s recent professional works as well as her T·N·D·S short ebook “Tales” are all set in the world of the Noble Dead Saga, it simply made sense for us to work out of one site into the future. We are used to working together anyway, if you did not notice.

MW1_usa_128VM1_usa_128Nobody panic just yet! Barb’s site will not suddenly vanish. We will give plenty of time to switch over in how you follow her news. All of her usual commentary and article series will continue into the future over at

If you want to get a head start, consider subscribing, following, etc. now. There you will find quite a few more options for social systems of preference from which to choose. That is all for now, and we will remind everyone several more times before the final switch, so stay tuned.
