Spire City, Season One: Infected available in many formats!

At last! Spire City, Season One: Infected is now out in both print and digital formats from a variety of sellers. So if you've been waiting for all the episodes to be available in a single format, now is the time. In case you've forgotten what this is all about...

Targeted by a mad scientist's deadly serum, these outcasts band together to uncover the truth and to fight back. 
Spire City is home to mighty machines of steam power and clockwork, and giant beetles pull picturesque carriages over cobbled streets, but there is a darker secret behind these wonders. A deadly infection, created by a mad scientist, is spreading through the city, targeting the poor and powerless, turning them slowly into animals. A group of those infected by the serum join together to survive, to trick the wealthy out of their money, and to fight back.
You get all thirteen episodes of the first season, which together form what is essentially the first novel of this trilogy of books. So go check it out, and don't forget that Season Two: Pursued should be opening to subscriptions in the coming week!

Another (brief,) late-ish announcement

Another thing that happened while I was traveling was that I sold a short story to Diabolical Plots. "The Blood Tree War" should be coming out sometime next year. Woo hoo!

(Even more announcements coming soon...)

A belated announcement..."The Gunpowder Resistance"

I've been traveling for most of this month and didn't always have great online access (nor time to even check if I did...). It was a very good family vacation, a chance to get back to Michigan for a few weeks and show the kids all kinds of things we have fond memories of but that they'd never seen. That's all I'll say about that here, but it is good to be back home, even among the chaos of unpacking and school starting.

One thing that I unfortunately didn't get much of a chance to do while traveling was point people to a new story publication! EveryDayFiction published "The Gunpowder Resistance" just a few days after we began our travels. I shared the link on Facebook, but that was the extent of my promoting. So if you missed the story, go on over there to read it! It's a Spire City story, though not connected at all with the characters of the serial. Not that anyone needs to know exactly how it fits to enjoy the story, but in my mind this takes place about thirty years after the serial, when the steampunk tech is evolving closer toward a WWI-era feel (though the way that effects this particular story is fairly small).

More announcements of a variety of sorts in the coming days. So stay tuned!
