Dear god, there’s actually STUFF for this update!
Demons of Oblivion
First, the Demons of Oblivion series is in paperback again.
Their covers match the ebook editions. You can find them at CreateSpace and Amazon. There aren’t currently any available in my shop–if you hate Amazon and/or want signed copies, let me know what titles you want to buy and I’ll see about ordering them, I just can’t afford to part with a chunk of change and no guarantee people will buy them right now. I already have one person interested and I hoping to get some ordered this month.
There’s also The Demons of Oblivion Bundle–the first three books and short stories, bundled as one for $9.99 (or $8.99 in my shop). It’s available everywhere.
I dislike asking for reviews, however, if you’ve read the three books in the series, please consider dropping a quick review of the bundle at Amazon. Thank you!
Early March, I released the short story Prey. More below.
Also in February, I confirmed that, unequivocally, the Demons of Oblivion is done for good due to piracy. After Oblivion, it’s done. I’m sorry, it was a painful situation, but that’s it now (unless I decide to write future books as patron-only serials…I’ve thought about it). And because the dumb bint who killed the series is after Damaged now, it is no longer available outside of my website, as I have to protect my health and I just do not have the energy to be policing this book too. There will be a print edition soon, however, which will be for sale on Amazon (I’m currently writing a short story to be included with it to boost the page count…think Nate and Ryann Buddy Cop Movie).
To celebrate the launch of Amends (more below), there is a 99c sale for Bloodlines all month. If you haven’t read it, now’s a great time to check it out. If you HAVE, please let your friends know, or else I’ll have to feed you to Zara’s saber-tooth cat, Rodney.
The other three novels in the series are $1 off in my online shop this month as well. (And if you want Whiskey Sour, it’ll be 99c next month, so hold on for that one.)
I also released (briefly) free the novella Rebellion. This is a River Wolfe story, and a companion piece to the novel River. It was a five-day event and is now no longer free–you can find it for sale in my online shop as well as on Payhip in ebook, and for print collectors it’s on Amazon and Createspace. If you insist on a third-party sold version, you can pre-order it at various places, however if rampant piracy of the series crops up again, that will no longer be an option.
There’s another River-related probably-novella-because-I-suck-at-short-stories I might write after Wolfe is released, but if it eats up as much time as Rebellion did, I am not yet sure if I can afford to write it. I’m gauging interest in Rebellion to decide if the last story will be worth it.
In MOAR River news, the collector hardcover edition is now available. It’s only on Lulu and I had no option to distribute elsewhere, so I’m sorry. It contains River and Rebellion, and you can find it here.
The first milestone was reached late February, which meant Prey was posted for patrons to read! This is an Alchemy Red longish-short story set after Damaged.
Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed. This now covers my monthly medication and I am sooo relieved. If you haven’t yet, please check the story out and enjoy!
And….the Amends milestone was ALSO reached! My god, you people are amazing. That means the Zara Lain serial Amends will start posting this month. I’m aiming for 2-3 chapters a month right now. It should conclude around the end of the year. If we stay at $100/month, I’ll serialize another unpublished book (likely the Livi Talbot prequel Riderch’s Sword). I am sorting out the easiest way to make the chapters available to patrons and will have the details soon.
If you have a couple bucks to spare a month and would like exclusive content plus to read other stuff early, have a look. (If you don’t, I totes understand and I still love you.)
I actually don’t have any more firm dates at the moment.
What I’m Working On
I started the rewrites for Haunted however, as I’m prone to doing, I decided to gut the thing and rewrite it in first person, change the villain and ending, and create more work for myself. So it might be a late-summer thing, or I might set it aside to finish up Wolfe first as it’s my primary commitment, next to stuff for patrons.
Other than that, more for-pay writing, of course, and a couple of other projects. I should hopefully have a better idea of when Wolfe will release this year by the next update. There is lots of stuff going on in my personal life at the moment, so it’s a matter of “I’ll get to stuff when I get to stuff.”
As always, thank you for your support, and happy reading!
