New Serial Site For Readers and Writers!

Hey everyone. I’m still alive over here – but Christmas, two kids, and a long lasting flu have made my brain mush.

I do have some good news. One of the groups I’ve been working with as an “early serial writer” is finally going public this year.

Book Brawl is the site’s name, and here’s a link.

They’ll be working to have a fresh serial site with a gaming system tied to it, leveling up, and so on. The site owners are reaching out to new authors to get them on board and have content put up for people to read. If you’re familiar with Wattpad, and RoyalRoadL, it’s similar in concept.

Here are my two donations – and more content will be added over the next few months.

Most people play the game: total immersion VR with full neural sync. But Hank lives it.

In Unlimited Combat, he’s one of the best. He makes his own luck. And he plays solo. Until now.
When a player offers Hank fame and fortune, it’s too good to pass up. To succeed, Hank must fight harder than ever before, pushing past the game’s safety protocols. His life is on the line, and when he’s captured, he knows he’s in too deep. Can he escape? And who can he trust?
Meanwhile, Hank’s father also escapes into VR, where he can relive his military past. But Hank’s dad has problems, caused by his experiences in the virtual battlefields of the future, and sometimes he has difficulty separating reality from his memories of virtual conflict. In real life, there’s conflict between father and son – could they be heading for a collision in VR?

Join Hank in the game—if you dare.

Slowly Cleaning the Site

I’ve got a stack of reviews saved up – and may at some point be opening up to reviews by request again.

 

Some of the links have been cleaned up or taken down, including old pages that are for offers no longer in existence.

 

Sometime this week I’ll start moving all works in progress over to the Patreon and updating the site so my Patreon link is more visible. There will be a single page for “works in progress” which will link the Patreon posts together by chapter. This will likely annoy me.

 

I’ve had zero feedback on the Patreon as a whole, so it’s hard to gauge how useful it will be. I would push it more, but eh. If you want access to any and all works in progress, it will be over there. It is very likely that anything “wide” – that is to say, not in Kindle Unlimited, will be uploaded to Patreon as well.

Patreon, Signed Books, and Site changes

Today’s post is one I’ve been putting off. Not because I’m trying to tank my own success, but because the change is huge in terms of investment and potential confusion. Plus status updates.

 

Here are the bits of good news.

  • Finished draft & edits of Royal Scales 4. <– Click for cover and availability!
  • Back issues are a lot better than they were.
  • Daughter is adorable.
  • On track for Nov’s Write Month

 

Here’s the mixed news.

A full on Patreon account has been started and all serial updates will be posted there. A few factors played into this choice, some of it being editing, artwork, audiobook, advertisements, etc. The Patreon will help front the costs for all of those things.

The short version is that I’m doing weekly updates of a new fiction exclusively on Patreon, until books go on Kindle Unlimited. It’s five chapters in as of this post. As a bonus (and with much work) – any time a book comes out of Kindle Unlimited (which will happen as we play around with going wide) – it will be put up on Patreon in its edited glory. The idea being that all created content will be found on that site.

I will be creating a page on this site which will link all the Patreon posts together by book. This will be confusing, messy, and probably wrong until I get in and edit stuff. In the end, it should end up a lot like the old chapter pages (and will indicate Patreon only by select spots)

There will likely be one on the Patreon as well – once I figure out the easiest way to make it look pretty.

I am open to any and all feedback regarding this decision.

 

What won’t change.

This site will still be used for reviews of anything that catches my fancy. It may have postings of other indie authors. There are still going to be links to all the sales and so on. I’ll back to semi regular updates for…anything going on.
