Patreon Account

Yes, I've finally broken down and created a Patreon account. I'm not sure how many people would actually be interested in becoming supporters, but I've got a few goodies in store for those who do. Advance looks at future work, draft chapters and concept sketches for stories I'm considering writing, and other material along those lines.

For those of you who don't chose to become supporters, don't worry. This blog will continue to have the same posts as in the past, including an advance look at the first couple of chapters of new books starting 6-8 weeks before publication.

Status Update

Well, it looks like it's time to admit that Extermination (the sequel to Black Coven) isn't quite going to be finished in time for a September release. At my current rate of progress I'm expecting to just finish the draft by then, but editing and proofreading generally take two or three weeks. So I'm now expecting to release the book in October.

In other news, I've started laying the groundwork for my second series. This will be fairly hard SF in a far-future setting, and I'm tentatively planning to release the first book several months after Extermination. Starting next year I'll probably alternate books between the two settings, with a goal of finishing a book about every four months.
