What’s Shaking on Patreon?

It’s been a bit since I’ve shared what’s going on over on the Patreon site, so thought I’d take a second and do that now.

Tho start with, we had The Lost Chapters – scenes that were written to mimic deleted scenes on a DVD as a tease for Legacy of Ghosts. Yeah, that was a minute ago, but I thought they were worth a re-share:

The Alternate Universe with Katelina and Verchiel was wrapped up …

But then a bunch of you wanted to see them confront Jorick, so now we’re working on a multi-part AU AU ending. Ha ha!

And of course I’ve posted the Tales of the Executioners as I expanded them:

And speaking of the collection, 1$ or more patrons get a 50% discount (which is basically 2$ off) the ebook of Takes of the Executioners, Volume One. And will likely get the same for Volume Two:

This month I’ll post anything I add to Volume Two, I’ll continue (and probably end) the AU AU, then start another requested AU in which Katelina took Samael up on immortality, and I might finally get to start on Micah. Ugh. He’s upset because he’s two months behind… He’ll just have to get over it, though. 😉

What are you looking forward to the most?

Tales from the Island Now in Paperback!

tales-island.png

It has been called to my attention that anyone who doesn’t have a collector’s version of Children of Shadows is missing the Tales from the Island collection in hard copy – so I’ve remedied this. You can now get the six short stories (sans the first chapter of Children of Shadows because that would just drive the price up) for only $4.00. Yeah, that’s right, less than a cup of fancy coffee, and the six short stories can be yours!

Get yours now!

Want it autographed? Message me.

Speaking of short stories, all the Executioner Tales are done, so now I need to do some editing and compile them together. Because of length (many stories clock in at 10,000 words plus) it may end up as two volumes. Sorry about that…But I know y’all don’t want a 900 page paperback that costs 30$.

In other news there should be a new AU installment over on Patreon this week, and I’ll also start on the Micah novel soon. Patrons will be able to read it as I write it.

If you’re on FaceBook, check out the Shadow League, where the Vampire Challenge will be taking place starting October 1st.

Mark your calendars for November 17th for icon in Des Moines, where yours truly will be attending with a booth. I’ll be signing books and handing out free swag, so come see me!

And that’s all the news for now!

Ten Day Book Challenge: Day Ten

And last we have the infinitely weird…

Image result for house of leaves book

Yeeeeah. This book… wow. This book is just one big mind melt. It has two, sometimes three overlaying stories that all sort of interconnect and slide over the top of one another until you’re left a bit confused, but in a sort of enlightened way. Not to mention it does this brilliant Blair Witch trick where it pretends that pieces of the story have been on the internet and floating around – but so long ago that we all missed them, or else we just weren’t in the right places- so that it manages a sort of “is this real?” quality. (I mean, I know it isn’t, just like Blair Witch wasn’t, but I bet there were people who thought it was). As to how it influenced me, I have no illusion that Patrick was not at least partially influenced by Johnny, so there’s that.

Didn’t see this one coming, huh? My Father-in-law gave it to me with a pile of other sci-fi books, but this one stood out the most. Why? I can;t put my finger on it, exactly, as the back copy says, there is an undefinable something…maybe it’s the character’s voice, or the crazy world. I don’t know. I just recommend it.

Why is every version I had as a kid now for sale on ebay as an Antiquarian version????

If you can’t read the spine, this is Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. It was the first book to make me bawl (if you’ve read it, you know why), and also my very first unfulfilled ship. To this day I say Jo should have married Lauri, not that old professor. He was too boring for her, and despite Little Men and Jo’s Boys, I’m pretty sure she’d have truthfully gotten bored with him. I won’t get in to much more, because 99% of the population has read this, so you know what I mean, but I will say when I was younger this was my favorite book, and Alcott was my favorite writer (I’ve been through pretty much everything she wrote, including those “lost” books they found later), and she only lost her place when I discovered VC Andrews, ha ha! But since Alcott’s lost books (and even the stories Jo writes in Little Women) are gothic romances, and VC Andrews is gothic romances, I can actually see the connection between the two.
