The Patreon.

I've got the "Prelude" and "Issue 0" of Unda Vosari Chronicles on the Patreon, as well as the first and second issues. I've also got a map up, although it's still not finished... I'm notoriously bad when it comes to mapping because naming cities is a pain in the ass (despite the fact I've got well over a third of the entire population of every major city named, you'd think I can name a city but NOPE, I can't name cities).

So far, I haven't gotten any patrons to sign up, but I'm not surprised. Most of the people I know haven't been interested in my writing at all, let alone enough to support my endeavors. That doesn't mean I'm gonna stop - it just means I have to focus on getting the bills paid before continuing the writing process (which is generally me just sitting down and putting fingers to keyboard, since I already KNOW what's going on, I just haven't typed it all out).

I plan on doing an issue or two a month, at the rate I'm going. We'll see how it goes.

Patreon, Chronicles and Confrontations

Big news first.

Patreon is a website that allows content creators to gain patrons that pay for work either by-piece or monthly (giving access to the work for the duration of the patronage is in effect).

Chronicles is back in full-swing. I'm gonna do at least a full 1,000-word "issue" a month, although I also plan on adding a bit here and there of "side stories" that involve Vincent and Dashade. Most of it will be Lorimarko and Genaya in the Mystic Isles (and I'm actually more focused on the "background" of the setting itself than I am the characters).

Speaking of Vincent, Confrontations (the second book) is pretty much finished - I just need to talk to my editor and send what parts I've got her way. I'm also wondering if I could talk her into editing Chronicles, but I haven't approached her with that, yet, since it's slightly less daunting but requires more presence (meaning, we'd have to schedule things at least once every couple of weeks).

I'm still wary about the course the story is taking. Maybe I need to invest in some kind of metaphysical lasso so I can rein the destruction back in.
