Patreon Supporter Reward for August Up!

Hey readers! Are you supporting Being a Better Writer on Patreon? Because if so, I have some good news for you! August’s reward has just gone up—a preview look at an short story teaser for a upcoming anthology I won’t name yet (I’m not sure whether or not they want it mentioned yet). It’s a lot of fun, I’m hoping it’ll make a good entry to the whole set.

In any case, if you’re a Patreon supporter, you should go here and take a look! And thanks for supporting!

January Patreon Reward Up!

Those of you who supporting me on Patreon have something awesome to go look at! That’s right, the January Supporter Reward is here, and it’s following the vein of December’s! Except in tardiness, naturally. It’s here today.

But what is that, you might ask? December’s reward kind of snuck out amid a lot of other news, so its understandable that some of you might have missed it, but December’s reward was the first three chapters of Shadow of an EmpireThat Fantasy-Western set in the same universe as Ripper from Unusual Events? The one coming out later this year?

Yeah, that one.

Well, January’s reward is up, and it’s a good one. December saw the first three chapters of Shadow, so this month (well, it’s February now, so last month?) sees the release of two more! That’s right, chapters 4 and 5 are also now available to Patreon supporters!

Enjoy, and thanks for supporting Being a Better Writer!

Alpha Invites and the December Patreon Supporter Reward

Hey readers. Max here with a pair of quick updates.

As of moments ago, the Alpha Reader invites to prior Alpha Readers have been sent out via e-mail for the Shadow of an Empire alpha! Check your inboxes. If you’re not a prior Alpha reader, but would be interested in becoming one, drop me a line with a rundown on what you know of the position and what you expect it to be like, and I’ll take a look.

Got it? Good. Shadow of an Empire is on its way at last! Woo!

Right, so second bit of news. Are you a Patreon Supporter? If so, hop on over to the posts page for, at last, the December Patreon Supporter reward! Yeah, it’s late. Jungle, remember? Anyway, this one’s a good one. An early look at the first three chapters of Shadow of an Empire. Yup. You can read the first 50 or so pages right now! What are you waiting for? Get going!

Not a Patreon Supporter? Well, that’s easily solved …

That’s it! Oh, and if you’re new enough that half of what was said here flew past in a blur of confusion, check out the Current Projects page to get caught up!

The November Patreon Supporter Reward is Here …

… and it is a big one!

How big? Well, let’s just say that as thanks for their support this month, Patreon-goers are getting an early look at … drumroll please … The first chapter of Jungle.

Yup. Which, by the way, I’m in the last few chapters of. At last. This book has swollen far past what I expected. Editing it will be a nightmare. But at the same time … Well, I’m not going to say anymore.

Anyway, if you’re a Patreon supporter and read Colony, what are you hanging around here for? Don’t you want to know what happens next to Jake, Anna, and Sweets? Sure you do. And given what happens in this opening chapter, I— Well, I’m not going to get ahead of myself. But I expect you’ll have questions for me.

So quit hanging around here and hop on over to November’s Patreon Reward on Patreon! And if you’re not a Patreon Supporter yet, it’s pretty easy to do. In return for helping support Being a Better Writer, you’ll get access to monthly supporter rewards, which range from early looks at chapters and stories, to behind the scenes stuff … to even some exclusive stuff long before anyone else, such as a look at a short story for More Unusual Events!

Cool, right? All that’s yours to look at for supporting! So get on over there!

October Patreon Reward – Happy Halloween!

I’ll keep this short, as I am beat! The October Patreon Supporter Award has arrived over on Patreon. And it is awesome.

What is it, you may ask? Why it’s a story! That’s right, a story. For Halloween. An early draft, but about 8.5k words long.

Oh, and it’s the sequel to Monthly Retreat from Unusual Events. And it has some other familiar faces show up as well.

Very much a fun treat piece. Perfect for the season. I had a lot of fun writing this.

Thanks for supporting, guys. You can check out your first look at Adapation, the October Patreon Supporter Reward, right at this link.

Two Patreon Supporter Posts Just Went Up!

Hey! Over here! Listen!

If you’re a supporter of Unusual Things on Patreon, I’ve got good news! Both the sickness-delayed August supporter post and the September supporter post have both just gone live! And even better, both contain never before seen stories. I’m not kidding, one of them was only ever seen by my classmates, and as far as I’m aware, the other has never been seen outside of my own eyes and that of my curious mother, who wanted to see what I was working on.

So yeah, both are old. Both are also, however, predecessors to the Unusuals Universe. No, seriously, you should be able to see the bricks being laid when you’re reading these.

Anyway, you can head on over to the posts page to take a look at both of them! Provided, of course, you’re a supporter. If you’re not, well … You’ll miss out. But hey, never fear. You can always become a supporter and get a look at everything that’s been posted there!

That’s all for now, but October is coming soon! And I’ve got something in mind for that …
