Now available, Wandering Fortunes Chapter 16: Conspiracy of Kindness

Got a brand-new chapter up today, and it’s the beginning of the end for our protagonists. Can’t say heroes, what have they done that’s heroic, anyway? Alden has a job with fellow Zhopian Guard members to take out a group of conspirators, but it’s not what he expects at all…

This is basically the chapter I refer to as “the one where things start to go to hex”. “and it’s a bad hex”. “like, a hellish hex even”.

In terms of editing this book, last week I finished editing chapter 20 which ends the first act of the book (as you can see by the Table of Contents… well, I think you can figure it out.) I’m on my way with this thing! Maybe someday I’ll be so far ahead in editing that I won’t be always uploading chapters that already have stuff I need to edit because of things I’ve done later. But that’s the nature of the free in-progress serial story!


Species Profile for Schalindra… How is this a species??

There’s a new species profile up, and it’s a doozy! The Schalindra, formally introduced in the last chapter, are a set of monstrous villains who are treated as such. They’re gross and horrible, yay! They also all look so widely different that it’s like, how are these all the same species?? You know how all dogs are dogs? Imagine that, except alligators are also a dog species. No one’s ever looked into how this is though because the Schalidnra probably killed and ate anyone who did.

They’re not nice. But who in New Zhopolis is?

An update on Darmenzi: the book isn’t coming out this year. Sad, I know. Still too much to do, including more things I’m adding to the plate that I want to happen around the time the book releases. It should be coming out in January though so it’s not like it’s too far away. Other projects will be coming, as well!

I have a job interview tomorrow though so if I get a dayjob (or nightjob as the case may be) things may slow down a bit. But I’ll never stop working!

Finally, Patreon continues to be a thing with a new chapter releasing soon! Check it out if you’re cool!

New Wandering Fortunes chapter a day early!

It’s the spooky day of Halloween, so let’s have a new Wandering Fortunes chapter a day early with the frightening prospect of singing oh no! Oh, there’s also horrible monstrous abominations, too. Chapter 11: Traveling Down Terrible Lane. Will they get out of this one? Will they find a job? Will Top pick up a new instrument?

By the way, having a chapter of scary monsters on Halloween was not planned. This was a coincidence. A scary coincidence!

Speaking of scary, I really hope to have news on the final release of Darmenzi in November. I’m hoping to have that news before the month is half over, at that. Regardless, those who give to my Patreon at $3/month will get to read the final book a month early, so that’s cool! A free copy a month early, at that. Anyone giving at any level gets a free copy when it releases. Also, patrons can learn more about the Schalindras later today when I post a profile on them. Plus you’ll get to read chapter 12 half a month early, in mid-November! So what are you waiting for? Begging? Because that seems like jumping the shark. What? You now want me to beg while jumping a shark? … i’ll think about it

Darmenzi Chapter 11 is available

Darmenzi Chapter 11: Flower Tower Devour Power Hour Shower Cower Nowor(never) Dower(y) Wow(z)er How’re(you)

Okay seriously, here’s chapter 11 of Darmenzi. This chapter features a new character who just might be important. Also with this chapter we begin the second half of Darmenzi, so I guess it’s fitting that a new character who just might be important appears.

Sorry about the delay, but I’m finally on furlough/sabbatical, so I have time to exist agaaaain. I’m still getting used to the feeling of having time, but later this month I hope to start existing more and posting more things. If something catches my consideration, I’ll actually post about it. In the news for Slubes, I am going to soon begin formatting the file to put through the things to turn them into books both e and p(aper), so that’s exciting! Fortunately I’ve done it before, so I have a slight idea of what I’m doing. Then again I did that four years ago… Good gourd, four years ago? Figgin time.

As always, my Patreon exists. They recently snazzed up the creator main pages. Maybe I should do some editing myself on it. I need to update my internet photo, but I maaaay have been ignoring some hygiene after my brain imploded–basically I lost the ability to pretend at work and couldn’t keep going. January 31st was the last day I had in me, I couldn’t do anymore. That’s why I’m late, I needed to reboot my brain and sleep for a day straight (more or less). Oh, and by “hygiene” I just meant “my face feels like a shag carpet”.
