Nysta #7 Assassin of Dragonclaw New Release!

read it now


As an Indie author, one of the hardest challenges I face is how to build an audience to make enough with my writing to enjoy the freedom to keep writing at a pace which will satisfy my readers. I never wanted to be one of those authors who writes a book every ten years or so. I would much rather write a minimum of four per year.


My daily income isn't high. Add to that I'm an introvert who's estranged from his family. This means I'll never own my own home, and I still can't drive a car. I'm luckier than most, however, and I'm not looking for a free ride. What I'm looking for is simply a way to offer more value for more return on the only gift I have - my writing. One way I'm looking to supplement my income is via services such as Paypal and Patreon.


Having never used them, I'm not sure what kinds of things you'd like to see as a reward for helping me out. Obviously books are a great reward, but when you're giving more than the price, you'd like to know you're appreciated. And I'd like to appreciate you. If you've got some ideas, I'd love to hear them. Visit my Contact page and feel free to drop me a line or visit my many social hangouts. I keep a close eye on Facebook and Twitter and try to respond as quickly as I can.

I've almost finished the new website design. It looks cool, but I need to work harder on the graphics. Need to resize them. Also need to get some maps! I think I've finally found someone who looks cool enough to bring the Fnordic Lands to colourful life, and I hope to work with her.
