Happy International Workers’ Day! I have various updates for you.
The last episode of the prologue season, Glory as Birthright, is finally online! You can go read and enjoy the entire story; it is about 30k words. It is novella length for award nomination purposes 🙂
I am planning on releasing a print version and commercially available ebooks, but I will do a preorder Kickstarter first, as promised – primarily to fund commissioning some really awesome cover art and other visual goodies. All backers will get the ebook right away, and this will help me put out print books. I wanted to launch the preorders today, but I’m a bit behind due to various life events including me spending time on job hunting, and our basement getting flooded twice. I wrote about what happened in my latest entry on Bogi Reads the World. So I will try to do a few other things first, including sending out the migration-related howto to beta readers. I’d just like you to know that preorders are in the pipeline, and you’ll be able to get print books.
The print books will be a similar form factor to other standalone novellas like Aqueduct, Tor etc. Each season will be released in print, at least that’s my plan (G-d willing). They will match each other, though I will sadly not be able to do that thing where the spines make a big picture, due to the limitations of Createspace. But I will try to do something fun regardless. 😀
In the meanwhile, you can already get the complete prologue season ebook (DRM-free mobi and epub!) if you back at at least $2 / month tier on Patreon. You will also get an exclusive personal afterword that will not be available anywhere else, including in the files sent out after the preorder month. This version doesn’t have cover art or illustrations, or an ISBN. Those will happen using the funds from preorders.
I also uploaded my new course syllabus about LGBTQIA+ Jews for backers, it has a lot of reading and things you might find interesting – this one you can get at $1 / month, just like all my updates minus the ebooks. Eventually it will be public and free, I just need all the paperwork to be done and I need to set up my new academic website too.
Thank you very much for all your support!! If you’ve been waiting for the season to finish to catch up on reading it, now is your cue. 🙂 Go to the master list of episodes and start reading!
