As I mentioned in an earlier post, I'm about halfway through the third book of the trilogy. I had the title for a fourth book pop into my head, so I'm wondering if there are actually more. The story is actually rounding out that there could be more. But I realized a couple of days … Continue reading Back to outlining
As we head into the new year, I'm looking for new, exciting avenues. One of these, I've decided to restart my Patreon page, which would allow people to contribute on a monthly basis in return for books, art, or both. I've been thinking about so many options, but I finally narrowed it down to a … Continue reading Patreon – a fresh start / Vella – a new beginning
