My Patreon has been updated, changed, revamped, and rearranged. Most of the About/Description/What Have You is the same as before–the main chances are the Patreon video, of which there is a new (longer, ramblier, wizard hattier) one, and the rewards and milestones have been changed or moved. You can watch a video on it that quite frankly is too long and rambly but that’s what happens when I get in front of a camera.
All posts for the month March, 2015

They’re gonna need all the help they can get to fend off this disaster. The events in the story, I mean. Not the book itself.
On April Fool’s Day, it won’t be a joke: chapter 1 will be available! And I do mean chapter; unlike Slubes, Darmenzi is divided into chapters. A brief glimpse at the list can be seen at the new page for the book.
Along with that, I’ve updated a bunch of the character, location, and species pages to accurately reflect changes in the Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmos since I’ve gotten an editor. List of changes include:
-Excerpts on character pages removed (the novel is readable on here anyway!)
-Title of “mayor” changed to “merag”
-Removed information on the demon supposedly trapped underground (this plot point will actually be removed from the final version of Slubes)
-Changed name of location Mt. Dynamo to Mt. Chiphus
-Edited description of Reptibia Rainforest to focus on the plants
-Added mention of forest around Spiest Manor
-Changed name of ostrich species to stroo-Changed name of turtle species to kasdde
-Changed name of chameleon species to Verk’lon
-Edited these species articles to reflect changes
-Updated quoted species appendix listings from Slubes for species articles
-Made note of the name of slube cartilage-like structure, kotli
-Alphabetized species listing
Later this month I might go through and do some more edits. Some of this stuff I wrote just now, including the summary for Darmenzi, so it might could use some work. Tomorrow will mark another big day, as well, for it is when I will be revamping my Patreon.
(P.S. The font used for the Darmenzi title is Lycanthrope from Sinister Visions)

Science (the discipline, not the academic journal) just announced today of the start of DST, Daylight Savings Temperature. Starting yesterday, everyone is to move their thermometers down ten degrees. This has the effect of dispelling the excess heat on the planet and making the summer months cooler. Science confirms that this has ended global warming and that the planet is no longer heating up.
In other news, my schedule at work is unchanged from last week–it was not affected by the clocks, even though it appears to have been. Therefore I did not lose an hour of sleep/the weekend. Jealous?

The end of Slubes is now available for everyone to read. That’s Slubes 1.0, of course; still working on Slubes 2.0. I am now working concurrently on Slubes and my next novel, Darmenzi, for the first chapter of Darmenzi will come in one month, and then everything changes.
Well, maybe not everything. But it sounds more dramatic then “and then lots of stuffs changes”. I’ll go further into details on these changes throughout this month. (Yep, it’s March. Change your calenders!) On this site I’ll be updating a lot of the pages on characters and such to match the changes I’ve made to names and everything, changes that will be in full effect for Darmenzi. I’m also going to make some changes to my Patreon, which still exists!
