Update – WorldCon

Hey all!

Quick personal update. Everything is pretty much booked and ready — I’ll be at Worldcon this year in San Jose! Super excited — I’ve never been to America before.

If anyone happens to be there, I don’t have a dealer’s stand at all, but you can message me on Facebook or Twitter if you want to catch me while I’m there.

That, or look for the one with the purple hair and the look of existential confusion.

I’m looking forward to the trip!

Liking Clichés

I get it. Sometimes liking things is embarrassing.

I’ve certainly liked media that, for whatever reason, I keep an I-would-tell-you-but-then-I’d-have-to-kill-you policy on. But those are getting fewer and further between, honestly. Not because I’ve suddenly started liking things that are better quality.  That is manifestly untrue. Continue reading

Release Day

It’s here! The day when you can purchase a copy of The Ferryman’s Apprentice of your very own!

I won’t make this too long — there’s only so many ways you can say “yay! I’m giving you an opportunity to spend money!” before you start sounding demanding and/or unreasonable. So quick reminder: This doesn’t mean I’m taking down the free chapters online, this is just for folks who don’t like the website way of reading things.

You can find the e-books at:
Lulu.com
iBooks
Nook
Or, if physical is more your speed, pick up a physical copy at:
Lulu.com
Amazon
Barnes&Noble

If you like what I do but you don’t want a copy yourself, as always, you can throw a few bucks my way on Patreon, or just tell a friend that there’s an awesome story floating around the Intertubes.

New Release Date

Hey all! Quick update because things do sometimes go in my favour!

New date when you can purchase The Ferryman’s Apprentice Part One as an e-book or a print book is the 6th of June!

Reiterating: This doesn’t mean you can’t read the online version for free anymore. This is just for those who want to own a copy, or (yes I’m an optimist, I’m aware) would like to contribute to my eventual writing career. The full text of The Ferryman’s Apprentice will always be available for free as long as this website is up and running.

Regular bloggy thought will return soon, and expect a new chapter of The Ferryman’s Apprentice Season 3 this Monday!

The Ferryman’s Apprentice Season Three

Hi, all.

I’m sure you all know how this works by now, but I didn’t get any ideas for a third buffer section, so you get this instead.

Season 3 of The Ferryman’s Apprentice starts next Monday.

If you have friends who might like the story, now’s a good time to get them into it, so they can catch up before the new content starts! [/shameless plug].

Hope that the long-time readers are interested in seeing what happens next! I know I had fun trying to write this next season!

Fantasy Healing

Fantasy stories and healing powers go hand in hand. If it’s not a D&D-style healing potion or healing spell system, then it’s an X-Men style super healing type thing. This just makes sense – fantasy stories, especially stories that have anything to do with superhero archetypes, or any tropes that Western fiction shares with shounen anime, are often made much easier with the presence of a healer. It lets your heroes take a lot more damage before they’re out of the game entirely. Continue reading

After the Stream

Just a quick update for everyone.

Thanks to anyone who checked in on the Twitch stream last week! We had fun, though we also had technical difficulties, so I wouldn’t blame anyone for leaving in frustration.

We’ve just about got those fixed, though, so don’t let that stop you from attending future streams!

Because there will be future streams. This week didn’t happen because two of our characters were out of town, but we’re going ahead next weekend, Sunday 7pm AEST same as usual (we’ll let you know if that changes). Join us for the actual story, now that all the worldbuilding is out of the way!

Watch for the hype on social media. We’re excited to get to the story, and we hope you’ll be excited to listen to it!
