Website, Kickstarter, And Other Rumblings Of Progress Under The Surface

My website's nearly done getting a major overhaul, and it'll go live probably in the next week or so. The most significant change is that it'll put all the links to stories available for free online in one place, and I'll be offering an e-reader friendly version of a story never published elsewhere to anybody who signs up for my email list. This offer will include people who are already signed up. I haven't used the list yet, so I'm looking forward to seeing what I can do with it.

I've also chosen a start date for my first Kickstarter campaign. Tuesday, October 13, the day after I get home from Capclave, I'll be... do people really use the expression "pulling the trigger" about crowdfunding campaigns? Weird. I'd like to have a way to talk about that phase of the project that doesn't sound like I'm deploying a weapon at people who are helping me bring a book into being. Anyhow, October 13, definitively, with hopes of getting the book itself out in the early srping of 2016, subject to the artist's availability and how many illustrations we end up commissioning from her.

Meanwhile, I'm acting on some excellent and friendly advice on how to fix one of the Beltresa novellas. Apparently, if I take the last 5,000 words and cut that part back to 1,000 words, it will no longer feel like a fragment of a larger book. Okay, let's see if that works. I get all the best personalized rejection letters!
