How did the "but is an ebook automatically self-publishing?" question get answered? Simple. Y'all are Beta Readers. I can give Beta Readers as many ebooks as I want, and I have decided the correct amount is "one a month."
Here's how this is going to work: if you choose the ebook option, you'll get your first ebook, which'll include all the chapters published thus far, in early November. Then you'll get one ebook at the end of every month that includes all the chapters published that month.
I am super-excited about this.
Also, I took another Patreon-recommended writing selfie. I'm totally typing in it. For real.
