Crowdfunding special

Today only, Monday the 28th, I will bump the first $100 in donations. 

That means, if you contribute at the $5 level, I will match your donation and bump you to the secret $10 perk. If you contribute $30, I bump you to $50 and make you a hat.

$100 of my own money, 12 hours at Michael's, 10 secret shops. 7.5 hours training Sears associates. That;s on top of the money and time and sweat already in the shop.

The link to the secret $10 perk level.

March marches on

Here it's nearly St. Patrick's Day.

As pagan Irish, I'm torn. on one hand, ethnic pride (my great-grandfather was an anchor baby!). On the other, Christian privilege. The saint got his sainthood for eliminating people like me.

So, aboard the airship, we'll have Dublin Coddle and Soda Bread, sing raucous Irish songs and maybe cast a bit.



1) Several; of you have written, asking about the status of Winter Chills. I have hauled Gabriel out of his new paramours' bed, dropped him back in the lab and remonstrated with him thoroughly about the wisdom of starting new romances while we are on deadline.

We plan to have it out by April 1, if not before the Equinox. I'd like to get it done while it is still winter.

2) Others have sent messages regarding contributors copies. They are all purchased and will be mailed as incoming finances allow.


These are selling better than the physical books.
Somewhere Out There
Winter Shivers
The Beast Within
are all in production


First Quarter is lean. But we will be getting statements out in early April


Any help would be hot.

And just because my great-great-grandmother would be unhappy if I didn't give you this:

Not dead yet, although both day jobs seem determined to get me there.

In the news:

The indiegogo campaign is reaching some of its goals, without a lot of support.  (I've been cashing out internet rewards programs. Amazing how far I can make $75 go.)  Any help would let us reach more of our goals.

Even if you can't contribute...and let me emphasize again, Authors Are In No Way Obligated to Contribute, sharing it to the four corners of social media would help a great deal.

Books: No news, no progress.


Winter Shivers is solidly into production as is Somewhere out There.

Royalties get paid next month. We didn't travel this month, so it might be slim.
Second Quarter has Frolicon. We're debating Hypericon.
