I recently launched a Patreon to convert older short stories into professional quality e-books, with a side of trying out audiobook production. I’ll be taking each story, most of which are around the 5,000-word mark and expanding them into the 15-30k range or longer. That’s a minimum of 10,000 words of new content a month. The new stories will then be beta read, edited by a professional editor, and turned into professional-grade e-books that are sent out to backers first and then released to the public on a three-month delay.
July’s Story: Wild Moon Company
Wild Moon Company is the story of a world at war. An ongoing conflict on the European front brings specialist Elias McAllister as the newest recruit to the Wild Moon Company. But packs don’t take kindly to unannounced additions and Elias isn’t a werewolf. He’s something much, much worse. You can read the current version (7k) on Archive of Our Own.
