Announcing my new “A Proper Picture for my ‘Pickman’s Model’ Kickstarter!

Sign up here. Basically, this is a very quick-and-dirty art Kickstarter, starting May 12th. The short version is: I’ve revised and expanded my short story ‘Pickman’s Model’ (yes, I have no shame*) and I plan to publish it on Kindle, and so forth. But for that I need art. I’ve called in Ben Fleuter to make a proper picture for it, but he rather reasonably wishes to get paid.

The Kickstarter itself is going to be fairly low – but if we hit the target, the stretch goals will let me buy more art ahead of time, for the next one or two chapbooks I’m working on now. People who back at the $5 level will get a digital copy of ‘Pickman’s Model,’ complete with the art; people who back at the $10 level will get the story, and digital copies of any chapbooks (plus the art, of course) unlocked by the stretch goals. This is absolutely a digital-only Kickstarter, though. Printing physical books gets expensive, very very quickly.

Here’s the link. Hope you’ll sign up to be notified on launch!

*Technically it’s my first professional fiction sale, only I never got paid. Long story.

The end-of-April Patreon posts are up!

This month we have:

  • THE ELMERITE ORDER, PART 8 AND LAST: A new campaign world starts next month. Haven’t decided what it’s going to be, yet. Anyway, this month is the last installment, discussing campaigns in this Mage-but-the-Technocracy’s-not-horrible-esque campaign world.
  • PICKMAN’S MODEL: My shameless companion piece to the original! Edited, expanded, and improved for… something. Something to be discussed soon. Keep watching the skies!

Well, MORGAN BAROD proceeds apace.

Got about half of the beta readers back in full and the other half are sending me stuff, so that’s on track. I also have the editor confirmed, and contracted out for the map (I absolutely needed to have a map for this book). The cover’s being worked on already, as you all know. I expect MORGAN BAROD will go to the editor at some time in May. I expect I’m going to try to work on TINSEL RAIN also in May, and until it’s time for me to do edits for MORGAN BAROD. If I have any time left over after that, I’m going to get a jump on the new novel.

Oh, and I’m planning a side project involving “Pickman’s Model.” Keep watching the skies…
