07/24/2020 Snippet, TIPPED ON A STIFF.

More comic violence! It’s OK, this guy was bad.

Patreon!

“Yeah, this is where I came in,” I muttered as I did a spin kick and knocked the knife out of his hand. And that really hurt, because I had forgotten the damned stitches again! But they were real eager to remind that they were there. And unhappy as hell, too. But they didn’t quite pop out, so I told myself to behave better and stop pissing ‘em off.

After this fight. The guy still on his feet was circling me, clearly trying to get some grappling and gouging in. That turned out to be pretty dumb, because Sofie pulled a bat out of her purse in one of those old gags, straight from the Lore. The nobles get all the fun toys, don’t they? And she was… pretty bad with a bat, yeah. But when you’re hitting somebody in the back of the head with your magically summoned one, just how good do you have to be?

You kind of expect little blue birds or something, again just like in the Lore. Instead, the guy went wobbly-kneed, staggered a few paces, fell down… and then Sofie smacked him with the bat again, only this time in a place where getting hit spoils the rest of your night, or maybe week. I know I’m supposed to wince in sympathy when that kind of thing happens, but I didn’t feel like it.

The FROZEN DREAMS store has reopened!

Now that I’ve gotten virtually all* of the Kickstarter paperback copies of FROZEN DREAMS out, I’ve gotten a look at my inventory and I think I can reasonably flog some of my existing stock. I was originally going to sell some of them at conventions, but that’s not going to happen any time soon, hey?

So, I’ve reopened the FROZEN DREAMS store. You can get the book, you can get the digital rewards, or you can get the whole shebang. There’s only twenty signed paperback books total for sale, and when they’re gone so is this reopening. If you missed it the first time, this is a great chance to catch up.

*There are a couple of people who NEED TO FILL OUT THEIR SURVEYS. But I’ve put their books aside anyway.

Question about future books.

You think there’d be a market for the microfiction? If I, say, coupled some of them with commissioned black and white art and sold the whole thing as a book? I’d probably have to crowdfund it, because I don’t have the three grand I estimate that the project would cost to get a hundred sketches for a hundred pieces of microfiction. At that, I don’t know if I could raise that kind of money for that kind of project.

Thoughts?

Moe Lane

PS: It’s just something I’m kicking around in my head. I mean, I already got paid for the microfiction, right? No rush on it.

We continue on with the new short story involving Tom Vargas. If you do like this, and you haven’t read FROZEN DREAMS (which stars Tom!) yet… feel free to pick up the book.

Patreon Microfiction: ‘Bites to be Them.’

Free will is so useful, wouldn’t you say? And humans can pretty much get used to anything, or anybody. Well, anybody who isn’t actually trying to eat their brains.

Please let me know if you don’t get your copy of FROZEN DREAMS.

According to Backerkit it looks like almost everybody who filled out their survey* has had their copy of FROZEN DREAMS ship, so if you don’t get yours let me know and I’ll start nagging on my side. I sent all of these via Media Mail, so hopefully I can track down what went wrong. Again, ‘hopefully’: this is learning-by-doing for me.

Gearing up now to do the RPG worldbook stuff exclusively. Oddly, I thought this would be the easy part. I wrote it already, right? Silly me…
