Lightweight returns, exclusively on Patreon!

This Wednesday, the fourth volume of Lightweight stories kicks off with Lightweight 16: Earthbound. This new volume brings Kevin Mathis back to Earth as he finds himself trapped in a game of cat and mouse against perhaps the world's greatest villain! As he seeks to uncover the mystery of how he returned to Earth, he may not live long enough to enjoy it! His very first adventure takes him directly into conflict with the very angry thunder god Thor.

The first tale is available for preorder now and will be available on Smashwords starting in August. But if you want to read the entire series before that date ever comes, the only way to do so is to join the exclusive members of my Patreon.

The new Lightweight tale goes live there on Wednesday for all members at the $2 level or higher, so get in ASAP to make sure you don't miss a second of the new material!

Head to Patreon to get your new Lightweight stories!

And thanks for reading!

Heavy is the Lightweight! (WIP Wednesday)

The last week or so has been focused completely on Lightweight. I've been working on final edits for Lightweight 16: Earthbound which will go up on Patreon in just a few days. I'm excited to bring this new saga out to the world and hope that it proves as entertaining as I think it is. It's an interesting start to the new volume, the continuance of my favorite series to write and the beginning of a lot more from Lightweight in the years ahead.

Even as I'm putting the final edits on Lightweight 16: Earthbound, I'm wrapping up the final pages of Lightweight 20. This will serve as the penultimate chapter of his return to Earth. These chapters are very much about Kevin finding his path as an adult back on Earth, even as he faces some pretty terrifying villains.

My writing speed is still a bit slower than I would like it to be in the new year, although I've been pushing out a lot of nonfiction specifically at the Wrestling Deep End. Here's hoping I can remedy that in the next couple weeks as I prepare to release a lot more stuff over the course of 2019!

2019: A Mission Statement

Today ends the first full week of 2019. And in that week, I've thought about where I wanted this blog to go in the new year.

Much of it I've already talked about in some detail over the last few months. This will be the waypoint to let everyone know exactly what new stories are coming from yours truly in the weeks and months ahead. Most of that focus will be on Patreon, where I'll deliver new stories every couple weeks. But I will also have other appearances pop up this year, with a couple anthology appearances in Pro Se Productions releases for example. I will be posting to Medium every week or two with a new article that might not fit the usual purview of this blog, such as my recent piece on the one year anniversary of learning I faced cancer. Or reminders every now and then when I post a particularly good update to Newer Gods or that Wrestling Deep End still exists for anyone that wants to read my thoughts on the sport of kings.

It will also come with thoughts now and then on the products I'm reading. If you have your ad blocker off for this site (and I appreciate it if you do) you can see the Amazon links to the books, movies, shows and games I'm enjoying right now. I'll add commentary now and then on what I am enjoying.

And I'll still stop in for WIP Wednesday updates as well.

My plan is to continue updating the blog three to five days a week in 2019. But if you want more content, be sure you follow me on Medium, join the Super Powered Fiction group on Facebook, and by subscribing to the newsletter.

So stay tuned for new and different adventures as this year continues and thanks for reading!
