First of all: Happy New Year, folks! I hope you've all had a great start to 2019. Life has been hectic for me of late. I'm running behind on a number of things but I'm starting to get caught up bit by bit so there's that. I'm now doing a series of limited chapbooks color-illustrated by Luke Spooner over on my Patreon. Luke did the interiors for the first chapbook in my Hex serial novel last year and I'll be continuing that serial. In between each part of Hex, though, I'll now be putting together a chapbook consisting of either a standalone novelette, a novella, or a short collection. Like with Hex, each will be signed by myself, numbered, and illustrated by Luke Spooner.
My weird novelette Through the Mindhole will kick off this year's subscription. The formatting is complete, though I'm still trying to decide between two different versions. Then I'll be immediately having copies printed off, so if you want one of these, you can join my Patreon at the $10 tier and I'll ship yours out. And Hex 2 will be coming up immediately afterword!
Here's the cover and some illustrations all by Luke Spooner:
Here's the tentative schedule I have in mind (if you sign up for my Patreon at the $10 tier or higher and don't have Hex Part I: The Eye of the Hexagon, let me know and I'll ship it along with the other two January chapbooks!):
January: Through the Mindhole (Novelette), Hex Part II: The Mouth of the Hexagon
February: Exit Reality
March: Hex III: The Flesh of the Hexagon (serial novel)
April: A Light That Could Only Shine On the Dead and Other Weird Tales (short collection)
May: Hex IV: The Blood of the Hexagon (serial novel)
June: The Quiet: Reimagined (new re-imagining of my 2011 short novella. There is a chance this will turn into a novel, if so, I will publish the first part and this schedule will change quite drastically)
July: Hex V: The Mind of the Hexagon (serial novel)
August: Flashes in the Dark (flash fiction collection)
September: Hex VI: The Light of the Hexagon (serial novel, final part)
October: The Orloge (Currently unfinished novelette/novella)
