Darmenzi releases Wednesday, January 17th, 2018! In one month!

As you can see by the press release I just posted, I finally have a release date set for Darmenzi. It’s been a long time coming… though maybe not as long as Slubes was. The ebook can be seen here and will be $1, just like Slubes, except Slubes is currently free for December on Smashwords.

Pre-ordering will be available once Smashwords approves the book and sends it to the websites that allow that; I will keep everyone informed as to when this happens as soon as it does. Keep in mind that if you pledge to my Patreon you get the book upon release, and if you pledge $3 or more you’ll get it BEFORE release!

As you may notice, the book has had a bit of a makeover, centering text and making the smaller text easier to read. To go with this is a new book description, which you can see both on the novel page of this website and the Smashwords page for the book. There is also a preview of the final book you can read here, with more chapter previews coming over the next few weeks before the book’s release.

Now then. You’ll notice I only mentioned the ebook. A physical book will be coming, but I do not know if it will come on the same day. I’m going to look into different physical book publishers from Createspace, and so that might take a bit of time to settle on one that I’ll want to use (unless the first one I try is great in which case swell!) I’ll keep you up-to-date on that as well.

In summary: Darmenzi releases January 17th, preview here, donate on Patreon to get a copy early, physical book news later.

Four Years and a Site Addition!

Four years ago I sat down, opened up Word, and typed a sentence that no longer exists due to editing. That sentence began my first actual novel, Slubes. From the early start of last decade when I wanted to make video games to realizing I far preferred writing from extensive storytelling collaborating with friends on the internet, I decided that novels were what I really wanted to do. So I wrote one. February 21st, 2010 (according to my records), I began writing Slubes.

On August 6th, I finished the first draft. It was awful. With help from my friends, I made it into what it is today. Or, well, what it was on June 4th, 2013, when I published it. Which is basically the same thing now; I did make some minor edits not too long ago.

Anyway, in honor of this, I’m putting something on my site that I should have done when Slubes first came out: You can now read a free preview of Slubes on this site by going to the Novels section of the site or by clicking here. This is more or less the same amount available on Smashwords, but now it’s someplace more tied directly to me. Like I said, I should’ve done that when the book first came out, and forthcoming books will have the same type of preview available when they come out.

That’s all I got today. See you in April for the 1-year anniversary of when I finished Slubes!
