Innocence Reborn is a forthcoming novel set in the somewhat distant future. It's somewhere between science fiction and space opera, told from a number of points of view, all of which are children. It's full of action, drama, and (most importantly) fun. Space has always captured my imagination, and I feel it brings out the child in us all. So there you go.
The excerpt here is the full prologue, which is big enough to be a short story in its own right. It follows 15-year-old Levi Maclin, whose family is on its way to mankind's first interstellar resort. It's supposed to be a summer vacation, but things are never that simple.
The complete novel will be available on February 20 for all Serious Readers. That's a $3/month pledge, and you'll get access to DRM-free copies of Innocence Reborn and all my other releases. You'll also have the joy of knowing that my next book was funded, in part, by your contributions.
Pledge $1 per month
You get a DRM-free copy of all of my self-published works (EPUB and MOBI formats). In addition, you also gain access to certain other works, including those representing milestone goals.
Pledge $3 per month
You get DRM-free copies (EPUB and MOBI) of all my self-published works before anyone else, as well as access to stories written for milestone goals. Also, you receive copies of short stories I write specifically for my patrons.
Pledge $5 per month
This tier is for those who wish to help out more than Serious Readers, but aren't willing to go as far as the Supporter level. In addition to what you get as a Serious Reader (DRM-free copies of my works, including milestone stories), you'll also get credit as a Supporter in everything I write while you maintain this level of support, but you don't get the other Supporter benefits.
Pledge $10 per month
You get the same benefits as the Serious Reader (DRM-free preprint copies of my novels, novellas, and short stories), but this is extended to all my written works, including drafts in progress. Also, you'll get credit as a supporter in any works I create while you maintain this level, and I'll give you one (1) vote on a supporter-chosen story (once per year).
Pledge $30 per month
You get everything from lower tiers (DRM-free preprint and draft access and supporter credit), as well as three (3) votes per year on community-driven stories. Also, I'll try to give Helpers cameo appearances in my stories (no more than once per person per year).
