leaflife & oberon …

19 June, 2017

Telepathic communication and strange new worlds … These were the themes of the poem and short story that were given as my June 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 July, you will be able to access the July 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. If I can sell a certain amount of books per month, I can then fulfil my dream of being a full time writer!
In July, my supporters will receive a previously unpublished elfje sequence about the brief life of leaves and/or a previously unpublished story about a diminutive character who finds himself lost in a fairy tale …
See you at Patreon soon!

dracomagan turns detective waiting for spring …

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!
