Yesterday in my wanderings across the internets, I came across this site called Patreon. The concept is simple. Remember back in the good old Renaissance days, when artists had patrons who would support them, allowing the artists to do cool things like paint church ceilings or be William Shakespeare? Yeah. Those were some pretty good days, from an artist’s perspective. Well, minus the constant threat of death to disease, and the criminal lack of video games. But yay for patrons! Patreon wants to bring that back. The patrons, not the constant threat of death to disease. So people can sign
So here’s the story. I’ve been toying with the idea of epublishing, trying to decide how best to approach it. I’ve written eleven books, and while some of them are tied up in the traditional publication process, others are just sitting in my Dropbox folder, gathering virtual dust. Not all of them are ready for primetime, but one stands out to me as a prime candidate for epublication: ICHABOD. It’s an adaptation of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and it tries to answer the question, “What do characters in books do when you’re not reading them?” Think of it as
Big times at the Bryce household. Yesterday I busted out the lawn tractor (swapping places with the snow blower) and mowed my lawn for the first time this year. Worked great, and no flat tires, courtesy of the metal detector I used to get most of them out of my lawn a month ago.

(Yes, that’s the technical term.) They’re supposed to grow quite fast. It
If you have, I need your help! I’m trying to rewrite the query again, and for some reason, I just can’t seem to effectively sum up the story. All my attempts are falling short. So . . . if you were going to describe the events of Ichabod (the concept of the story as well as what exactly happens) in a paragraph or two, how would you do it? I’d love some ideas, people. Help!
I realized I haven’t given a good update on where I am writing wise in a while. Not too terribly much has changed, I’m afraid. I have yet to hear back on the screenplay for Ichabod, or on the copy of Pawn of the Dead that’s been at the agent’s for a while. (Four months and change waiting so far on Ichabod, six and change on Pawn–but I’m a patient fellow.) In the meantime, I had been flitting from project to project, not really staying with any one long enough to make real headway–just wasn’t feeling it. I’m happy to
