I'm Chengar Qordath. I wrote my first novel back when I was in high school. Well, my first novel-length story, at least. No, you can't read it. Mostly because it was awful. Like, seriously awful. As far as I know, there are no copies of it in existence, and I'm glad of that.
Thankfully, I've gotten a lot better since then. I've been writing off-and-on ever since then, but it wasn't until I got into the MLP fandom that my writing really took off. Mostly because the fans are just such awesome people. I got started with a random one-off crossover between the Dresden Files and MLP, and from there I just kept writing more and more pony words. Now I don't think I know how to stop!
Several of my works, such as My Little Denarians, The Life and Times of a Winning Pony, and The Lunar Rebellion have become rather popular and are quite widely read. I was especially pumped when Jim Butcher, author of the Dresden Files, tweeted about My Little Denarians.
My writing covers a fairly broad spectrum, from the largely lighthearted action/adventure of Harry Dresden's misadventures in Equestria to the comedy/drama of Life and Times, or the epic trilogy that is The Lunar Rebellion. In addition to all of that is my latest venture, an ongoing series about Sunset Shimmer, a magus-for-hire in the lovely hive of scum and villainy that is Freeport.
I've been writing for a long time, and all of my works date have been available to anyone who wants to read them. I know I’ve had a lot of fun writing them, and from all the positive feedback I've gotten a lot of my readers enjoyed the stories too.
However, writing more than one million words of fiction is a massive investment of time and energy, and the way life works, I have to invest in things other than just writing. This includes:
- Launchpad funds to help me put these projects to print
- Internet Service
- A whip, to help me properly motivate my editors
- Did I get food on the list already?
- I did? You see, people—this is why I need that whip
Now, I hope everyone understands that you can keep reading everything I've published for free, and with my thanks for continuing to enjoy my works. However, if you like what you read and you feel like supporting the guy writing it, I’d appreciate your help.
Supporters will be rewarded by getting sneak peeks at my upcoming projects. Those of you who can’t spare a couple bucks for me don’t need to worry, though; everything will still be released to the public on more-or-less the same schedule as it has been. We'll also be looking into expanding the rewards on offer once we build up some startup cash.
I’ve come this far only because of readers like you. So thank you. Really—thank you.
