an odyssey of ashes …

21 March, 2017

A detective story and a yearning for Spring … These were the themes of the poem and short story that were given as my March Rewards for my Patreon supporters.
If you missed out on these rewards, don’t worry! If you pledge your support for me at Patreon before 1st April, you will be able to access the April Rewards.
Once published, my books need to be promoted. This can only be done effectively if I pay established companies to promote my novels etc. Therefore, I am seeking to promote my books on a weekly basis and to do that properly, I need at least $30 per month. Without promotion I cannot sell my work and, as I am currently unemployed, I have no means of funding myself. If I can sell a certain amount of books per month, I can then fulfil my dream of being a full time writer!
In April, my supporters will receive a previously unpublished cinquain/haiku/lantune sequence about journeying through Space and/or a previously unpublished story about a man who no longer has a place to call home …

Here is the first verse of my Freyan Verse, Freefall. It looks a bit different from the usual Freyan Verse doesn’t it? Over the next couple of weeks I will build you a picture of how I construct this form of poetry. Why don’t you give it a go yourself?
