Before I start, I would like to send a big thank you to all the people who gifted me food and various other household supplies and drove me around, while I was unable to accept monetary payment due to my visa status. (You can read about this here.) You helped me through two very cold Iowa winters, and I am extremely grateful. Now everyone will be able to support me in a much simpler way!
I have a serial, Iwunen Interstellar Investigations (I3), ready to launch - with about three months of content already made. My health has been quite erratic, so I wanted to make sure you don't run out of weekly reading!
I also have a novella I intend to serialize here, Power to Yield. It is set in the Eren universe, like I3, but about 300 years in the past.
In two weeks, I will do a poll among my current backers about the release order: I can post Power to Yield first, then launch I3, or I can post the prologue season of I3 first, and then - before moving on to the characters' first investigation -, I can release Power to Yield. So sign up now to have your say!!
I will post brief descriptions of both, but you might want to know in advance that both are #ownvoices stories featuring autistic characters who are also on the asexual spectrum. (The protagonists in I3 are demisexual, and the protagonists in Power to Yield are aromantic asexual.) You can read my interview in A Pack of Aces for more information!
Reviews and recommendations
I have two very big announcements for #diversestories and #diversepoems! One is that in addition to the Twitter and Goodreads streams (which I will continue), I will move my recommendations and reviews to a new website, which will also offer many further details. Increase your TBR pile with me!
The second announcement is a SECRET I will release next week, G-d willing. It is something many of you have been asking for, and now hopefully I will be able to do it.
I am just now getting back to drawing things. I will have a full page illustration coming in an anthology - announcement soon, G-d willing! But what I would especially like to draw are illustrations for my serial; right now I mostly have older drawings and photos here on my Patreon. I will also need to set up a website for I3; I've already bought the domain names, but I need to put the site itself together.
I think these are my plans in a nutshell, but I keep on coming up with new ideas, and you will be the first to hear about them!
Thank you very much for your attention and kindness,
Bogi the person :)
