I decided to release Pirates of the Milky Way as a web novel in part as an effort to broaden my audience. Today, May 1, I feel confident that effort has been successful. I have almost 20,000 views on Royal Road and 10,000 on ScribbleHub. The story has also generated hundreds more on such sites as SpaceBattles and Sufficient Velocity.
Efforts are ongoing, and I released the latest chapters for Book IV, Halcyon’s Heirs, on Patreon this morning. I have a special offer for new patrons coming in at the Crewmember level or higher in May: a free copy of Ghostsuit: An Empathic Detective Novel on Amazon.
Thanks for your ongoing support! Look for Book IV to be completed later this month.

Today marks the start of the Kindle Scout campaign for Ghostsuit: An Empathic Detective Novel.
This will be the second Empathic Detective book, following the adventures of Detective Gerald Bryce. Here is the blurb for the new book:
A serial killer is loose in Central Texas. The Hangman steals victims’ DNA, disappearing without a trace. When Gerald Bryce investigates, he uncovers a far more sinister plot. Someone is intent on creating artificial life and harnessing its clairvoyant powers. Can he stop the Hangman before people he loves get hurt? And can he stop the larger plot before everyone in the city falls under a dangerous psychic spell? A ghostsuit may hold the key, by giving him an electronic set of spectral powers.
Readers who nominate the book for publication will receive a free copy from Amazon if Kindle Press publishes the book.
Please nominate the book today.
