Finally getting back to writing, albeit at a slow pace, has got me to thinking about the collection that was the reason for creating my Patreon page. “Mystics and Misfits” is a celebration of everything I love about the Science Fiction and Fantasy genre filtered through my experiences and feelings. I became an artist because of the artwork from the books, movies, and TV shows. I started writing because of all the great stories I read that touched my heart, made me laugh, cry, and rage. Now I have a chance to show you guys what it means to me.
I just reopened the file that contains the collection and it stands at 58,173 words and my goal is 80,000 for the final book. If “Lost Contact expands out as I think it will, I should be at that mark. I will also be adding in my sffworld contest entry “A Word in the Hand is Worth Two in the Bush” because I think it is a worthy story and will help get over the word goal. From there is where I will need all of your help and support. I want to get a real editor to go through the collection and make it as sharp and tight as a professional collection, but that will take money and encouragement. Please consider helping anyway you can.
