For a time in 2014-15 the novels and their successive spin-off stories were rather popular on [=SoFurry=], where Veidt made his creative home. Following the completion of the first book, ''Not Exactly Night,'' in July of 2014, and the second, ''Litany'' in March of 2015, Veidt slowly but surely gained a dedicated following in the TF (transformation) community, usually through stories that had explicitly spooky or horror themes. However, in 2016 Veidt shifted gears and moved away from horror-based literature and more into UrbanFantasy, specifically MythPunk-like stories featuring [[OurCryptidsAreMoreMysterious regional cryptids]]. As his output became [[DarkerAndEdgier more and more transgressive]], his followers evaporated, and by 2017 he had lost complete interest in keeping a public profile -- [[CreatorBreakdown he convinced himself that nobody cared about his work and, worse, that the website he was posting them to was going to steal his copyright]]. This led him to take all of his work down everywhere, and indeed, references to it were quite scarce except for this very website.

For now, you can find his work on his Website/{{Tumblr}}, where he is slowly rebuilding his online presence, right [[https://christopher-veidt.tumblr.com here]].
