I'm a speculative fiction author. My series the Necromancer Chronicles (The Drowning City, The Bone Palace, and Kingdoms of Dust) is published by Orbit Books, and my latest novel, Dreams of Shreds & Tatters, is available from Solaris. For more information on the books and my short fiction visit my website.

My latest project is The Poison Court, a novel set in the city of Erisin, following the intrigues and adventures of Savedra Severos and her friends, enemies, and relations. Savedra first appears in my Tiptree-nominated novel The Bone Palace. I hope this will be the first of several books in which she stars. Those unfamiliar with the characters or setting can learn more, and read chapters, here.

I currently write while day-jobbing full time, which has greatly impacted my output over the past few years. I hope that this campaign will help me scale back my hours in the wage mines, giving me more time to write.

The Poison Court is currently making the rounds with editors, and I hope to have news soon. I'm currently working on another Isyllt project called The Ashen Path, as well as short fiction.

Goals
$90 of $500 per month
Don't quit your dayjob. At least, not quit, but if we reach this goal I can switch to a part-time schedule, freeing up 20 hours of my week for writing.
