Patreon: New Shinies
Updated: May 31, 2020
Here's my monthly update of new things coming to my Patreon in March. If you would like to become one of my patrons, just click the Patreon link below.
For all Patrons, I have a brand new short story available tomorrow from the Encounters collection. It's a 9,000-word prequel to the Sovereign series called Blood Brothers.
When I first started writing the Encounters collection, a short story about Alistair and Adewale was one of the most popular suggestions with readers I polled on Twitter, and I can understand why. I love their dynamic, so I've taken the opportunity in this story to delve back to the very beginning of their relationship. This story was so much fun to write, because it's not just an origin story for their friendship, it's also a HEIST! Who doesn't love a good heist story?
I can also promise that this isn't the last you'll hear from these two characters. They'll be cropping up again in the Seekers series eventually (the first book is coming in the summer). In the meantime, I hope you'll enjoy this little slice of their history, and look forward to more.
For Patrons of Tertius tier and above, I have chapters 15-18 of May Day (Seekers Book 1) coming tomorrow. May Day is a murder mystery, in which vampires are the ones doing the investigating. It's set in the Silverse, the same world as the rest of my vampire novels, and takes place before Solis Invicti.
Altogether, chapters 15-18 are about 12,000 words. Chapters 1-14 are already available to higher-tier patrons, and will be available until September (so new Patrons will have access to all draft chapters so far).
These latest four chapters follow Jack as she tries to track down the connection between the Solis Invicti and the murder she's investigating. She also gets a date (!) and goes on one too, though unfortunately it's with the wrong person...
In writing news, I'm continuing with my first draft of May Day, and am planning to finish it within the next few weeks so I can start researching my next novel.
In reading news, I'm currently reading Hangover Square by Patrick Hamilton, a novel set just after the Second World War that follows a man with schizophrenia (I think... I'm not quite far in enough for it to be clear!).
In other news, I'm currently trying not to eat so much chocolate as usual, which is horribly difficult!
