Patreon Microfiction: Just Before The Beginning Of The End.

Well. They meant well. …Which really is the worst thing in the English language that you can say about someone. Also: “Just Before The Beginning Of The End” may or may not be canonically part of the Fermi Resolution, but it’s not currently contradicting it.

Christopher Walken to be Emperor Shaddam IV for DUNE PART TWO.

Yeah.

Denis Villeneuve is adding another high-profile talent to an already-loaded cast as sources tell Deadline Christopher Walken is set to play the Emperor in Warner Bros. and Legendary’s Dune: Part Two. Walken joins the all-star ensemble that includes Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya and Josh Brolin, who are expected to reprise their roles, as well Florence Pugh and Austin Butler, who were also recently announced. Villeneuve is back to write, direct and produce.

I’m not saying no. I’m just saying, ‘Huh.’ Because that’ll be something to see. And probably all too short.

The Exorcism Engines: A Girl Genius Graphic Novel Kickstarter.

The Exorcism Engines: A Girl Genius Graphic Novel just went live today: it’s the latest compilation. There’s an early bird level that’ll get you two bucks off the book, if you get in on it before it fully funds. Which will also likely be today.

PS: I slept for nine hours last night. I was shocked at the way that I didn’t wake up in the middle of the night. Just… BOOM, it was morning. I should probably take that as a hint.

Book of the Week: Abomination.

Found this one on my desktop: Abomination is a horror novel by Gary Whitta, set in the time of Alfred the Great. It’s got evil magic and monsters and suchlike in it, and so far it’s really good. I’m just trying to figure out how I got a copy. I have literally no memory of receiving one, and I definitely didn’t buy it on Amazon. And I’m having the Devil of a time installing it on my phone, too.

Weird.

Book of the Week: TINSEL RAIN (Now would be an awesome time to back the Kickstarter, btw).

I’m using this as an excuse to talk about the future publication schedule of TINSEL RAIN. The short version is, the Kickstarter is going well enough that I might be able to pay the editor early. I’ve already paid for the cover art, which means that the remaining expenses besides the editing are an updated map, book layout, and a tip for the cover artist. Oh, and the physical books for signing and distribution. Can’t forget those.

Good news: I can keep the paperback price of TINSEL RAIN down to $12.99.

Did some preliminaries, and it looks like the $12.99 price point still works. Well, for the moment at least. Ask me again in six months, given that inflation’s apparently a thing now.

Huzzah.

Anyway, plenty of incentive for me to get enough liquidity to publish as quick as possible, hey? Click here or here to sign up for notifications. Five days to go!
