Hi everyone! Happy May! Can you believe that summer is finally around the corner? I hope that the weather has finally started to turn for you all and that we have plenty of warm days ahead of us! As always this has been another crazy writing month and we’ve got another batch of great news! So, let’s dive in with an update!

Ascend Online Releases This Month!

We’re almost to the big day! As of writing this we are just six more days away from Threads of Fate becoming available on print and audio and I can’t wait to hear what you all think about it! This was by far my most favorite Ascend Online book to write and I’m already itching to get back to it once I’ve caught up on Starbreaker and Scion of Magic!

If you want to be ready for the big day audio-wise then you can pre-order the book over on Audible!

If you’re looking for the physical editions – I am hoping to have them up this week for pre-order, so stay tuned on seeing those! As for the eBook edition – it is available now over on the YONDER app!

As a heads up as well – if you want to stay right on edge of all Ascend Online content for Threads of Fate and beyond, plus be in the loop for all my other projects (such as Starbreaker and Scion of Magic!) I have coming out over the next few months, my Patreon is the best place for that! As I have mentioned before, I am going to be leaning hard back into my Patreon going forward and I’ve built out a huge welcoming package for everyone who joins my page – everyone who joins will get immediate access to almost every book I’ve ever written totaling some near 2 million words, the Ascend Online Comic, as well as never before seen artwork! This is really the place to be if you want to stay on top of everything I’m doing far in advance of it arriving on Amazon!

 

Starbreaker is now done!

That’s right! I’ve polished another book off and now I’m in the middle of getting shipshape ready for production and it’s eventual serialization on royal road, my website, and Patreon! This book was an absolute blast to write and I really can’t wait to hear what you all think of it! If any of you have enjoyed Spelljammer, Starship Mage, and/or Iron Prince, then this is 200% the book for you!

In any case once this book is finished and off to editing, I’ll be jumping straight into book 2 of Starbreaker while continuing to tinker on Scion of Magic. Soon as Starbreaker 1 is back and in fighting shape from its edits, it will go live on Patreon, Royal Road, my website, and more for all who want to read it!

 

Ascend Online Issue #2 Kickstarter is Coming in June Now!

I know that our original target here was to get the Kickstarter going in May, but after trying to plan that out – it honestly was too much for Kayla, Jason, and myself to manage! So we’re kicking it a month forward into June! Stay tuned for more information as we get this campaign moving – but in the meantime to make sure you’re not missing anything – be sure to follow the project here so you get the news as soon as it goes live!

 

I’m doing an AMA next month!

As a reminder – to celebrate the launch of Threads of Fate I will be doing an AMA over on r/fantasy and r/ProgressionFantasy on May 7th! So mark it down on your calendars! If you have questions you want to ask me, or just want to come by and say hi, I’d love to see you there! But also don’t worry – I’ll be sure to make a post and email announcing the AMA once it goes live!

 

And that’s a wrap!

There we go! Another month in the books with an even more exciting month ahead of us! I hope that you all enjoy what I’ve got in store for you all this May and love Starbreaker once it starts serializing! In the meantime I hope you all have a happy and healthy month and we’ll see you again to celebrate Threads of Fate launch as well as my AMA!
