Hey everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful week. Let’s jump right into it, shall we?
First thing I want to jump into is regarding my shift on weekly posts. Starting this week, I will move my weekly updates to Mondays going forward. The reason being is that the bulk of my writing progress happens on the weekend, and I want to maximize my writing time, uninterrupted, so I can get the stories out to you all quickly. I’m currently working on chapter 7 of The Aspect Book 3. Everything is going pretty great, and I’m still on course with my release schedule. I also did some cleanup work on the minor factions within the next series which will be a sci-fi space opera/fantasy.
Chloe is hard at work on the character sheets, which should be ready later this month. Alyndra’s sheet might be released later than originally planned as the priority in May will be Book 3’s cover. Depending on how booked Chloe is, she may not get to Alyndra’s cover until late May. This may be a bit of a spoiler, but once she is done with Alyndra’s there will be 3 more character sheets, I have asked her to complete. That “should” be all the character sheets we’ll do for The Aspect. For the Sci-Fi book, I am scouring for another artist who would do the art for those books. Book 1 will include a galaxy map and a breakout of the spaceship the MC will eventually fly. I’m currently in negotiations with an artist who specializes in deck plans, and I am super excited to show those to you all once they are finished.
This is a pretty hot topic as of late, with me receiving multiple requests to set one up. First off, I just want to say thank you for those of you who have reached out wanting to support me further. It really means a lot. Now onto the ask, my hesitation with setting one up is that I do not want to diminish the quality that is offered to you, and I do not wish to slow my progress on my current works. For me to be able to provide quality content for you all on Patreon, would pull my time away from me to get the stories out to you sooner. Because of the overwhelming level of support I have received as of late, I think this will be only a matter of time. Here are my current ideas on things I would like to offer, let me know what you think.
– Early access to preview chapters (will be removed upon release)
– Early access to character art (will be posted on Patreon 1 week before public). If we get enough subs, we’ll get monthly art.
– Patreon exclusive stories/spin offs (likely one chapter a month, we’ll vote on it)
– Discord access with exclusive channels with polls
– Patreon exclusive audio
– Read access to my world building site (it’s like a wiki where I keep stuff in order)
Finally, I just want to say, thank you all for your continued support. This week I have received so many shares of my books on social media, direct messages telling me how much you love the books, and questions about the stories. I LOVE this, so don’t hesitate to reach out. That’s it for me this week. I hope you all have a great week!
