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.
