Hark, some Holiday Stories

So, Rachel Sharp decided she wanted to put together an LGBT holiday-themed anthology of flash fiction. Because she’s punk rock like that. She asked me to include a story if I had one. I had an idea for another story I’m planning on doing and decided to make the little piece a lead-up to that one. There’s like twenty authors. You can get a copy from any of us by donating/pledging/backing/whatever. If you’d like one from me, I ask for a minimum of $2 to my sleep apnea gofundme campaign. I am a charity unto myself at the moment. Upon donation, I will send you a link with a zip file that contains an epub, mobi, and print-formatted pdf that you can print out for you own enjoyment.

Oh boy, GoFundMe Part 3

I said I was going to draw this month, and finish Grimluk 4 (that might still happen) but uh, I’ve been dealing with my sleep apnea a LOT lately. And by dealing with, I mean, it’s kicking my ass. So I started another campaign. I’ve needed to get my sleep fixed for a LONG time. It’s interfering with my ability to work once more so here we go again. As always, you can buy my books or become a patron as well.

Orctober Drawings Week 1

Thought it might be time to share some of the drawings I did. Unfortunately, I only managed four so far. Still, they’re something. These are all fast and dirty.

 

Happy Orctober 2019!

orctober

It’s 2019 and another Orctober is upon us! And I have some exciting plans this year. Boy howdy, are you gonna be thrilled. Maybe even chilled. I’m going to show you some sights.

Because all I have planned this year is to participate in the art prompts. I’ve been both busy and distracted this year and with no book or Kickstarter this year and a lack of plans, as I continue trying to get the By Demons Be Driven first draft finished, I never got around to planning. So this year, I’m gonna try to do all 31 days of this year’s Orctober prompt card.

Orctober 2019 prompt list

Every week, I’ll post my work. This will also be good for me for practice. Should be fun. And probably a little frustrating. And hey, if you haven’t read any Grimluk yet, this is the perfect month to do it. Orcs fighting demons is pretty much what this month was made for.

Grimluk 4 Title Reveal

By Demons Be Driven

Goodnight, everybody!

I kid, I kid. So why this title? I’ve actually had this one for a couple of years. In this book, Grimluk will end up being hunted by demons. “The hunter becomes the hunted” will no doubt be in the blurb. It’s also a Pantera song and while I hate Pantera in my old age and wish someone would hurl Phil Anselmo into the sun, that title is fucking badass. So I’m stealing it. And while Grimluk will be hunted, he remains committed to being a hunter, stumbling upon a cult and setting about to shut it down. Wow, that doesn’t sound interesting because I’m skirting around giving away too many details. I don’t want to spoil things for you! But By Demons Be Driven will feature a wild hunt of sorts, a werewolf, some heavy use of Lovecraft filtered through my brain (explicitly more than what I’ve used so far), and probably the most action I’ll have written yet.

And hey, have a progress update: I’m currently hovering around 20K mark, which is not quite a third of the way to my minimum goal of 75K. It will probably end up being more. Demons Within got real close to 80K.

Four Year Anniversary Giveaway

It’s been four years since I released A Demon in the Desert and to celebrate, I’m doing a a month long giveaway. For all of June, you can get A Demon in the Desert for free in your choice of epub or mobi formats. I know by now that my first book was pretty rough but it got me started. It helped me start on a path to make me feel like a real person again and I’ll always be proud of that. Happy anniversary to my big green son.

You can get A Demon in the Desert here!

Dental Work GoFundMe

Hey, y’all. I’m in pretty serious need of help with dental work and started a GoFundMe this weekend after my tooth started hurting Friday night. I managed to get into the dentist this morning and found out I have a non-draining abscess. I’ll be picking up antibiotics in a little while and I have an extraction set for next Wednesday. In the meantime, I could really use help getting the money together for all this dental work I need.
