First, though it’s been over a month, some big things have happened in that time (it’s just been a little difficult to catch up everyone on every platform I have). Both my novella, Robert Phillips, and my semi-autobiographical art and writing collection, J. M. DeSantis: The First Ten Years are available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble. That’s added to the release of And They Call it Mummy Love (on ComiXology and IndyPlanet), and the forthcoming The Tainted Ones comic, and it’s only May.
Thanks to opening Dark Fire Press (darkfirepress.com), this has all been possible, and so far so good. I’m very happy with the results. Of course, there’s more coming still, even beyond The Tainted Ones, which includes Chadhiyana and Gentleman Cthulhu, but I’m also trying to take things one step at a time.
If you do decide to pick up one of the books and read them, please leave an honest review on their respective sites (it does help the books rise higher in the search engines). Information about those and other books are always available on darkfirepress.com, and I am adding some additional layouts and placements to this site in order for new publications (or even old ones) to be seen and found easier.
This (at least I feel) is great as it’s all pointing toward more content from me, and more stories (even prose work, which I am so, so happy about). But with that, I am making a minor (maybe significant) change to my Patreon.
Rather than the monthly auto-contribution, I’m going to switch to a per-project contribution system (as many creators do in fact use). I’m still going to attempt to get something out per month (that is still the absolute and honest plan), but in case I don’t (which has happened in the past) I don’t want to either be forced to rush something or have patrons paying for nothing. That said, The Tainted Ones should be finished by the end of this month, in which case, you might want to join to have your name included in the book: patreon.com/jmdesantis.
Otherwise, I’m looking forward to bringing you all more content this year (and well into 2020 from everything I’ve been planning; and of course more beyond). So whether your a patron, subscribed to my mailing list, following me on social media (all at the top of the sidebar), or just checking my website from time to time, keep with it. Even if I stopped here, I’d count the year a successful one…and I feel like I’ve barely gotten started.
