The Grimbold Patreon launches today! Thank you to everyone who’s already backed and supported it – if you haven’t chipped in already you still have time to subscribe this month. Coming up on August 3rd you can read an exclusive piece of flash fiction by me, “The Ladies of the Canyon”.

Some of you might have heard me read “Ladies of the Canyon” at the BristolCon Fringe Open Mic, or at Sanctum, but it’s never been in print before. It’s a rare venture into flash for me, the title is stolen from a Joni Mitchell song and the story channels Adrian Tchaikovsky in certain aspects 😉 I hope you enjoy it.

I didn’t realise until yesterday that this exclusive short story comes complete with exclusive cover art from the fabulous Ken Dawson :

Also coming up this month, depending on what you pledge, you can access :

  • Behind the scenes look at our newest title, Autonomy (this will go up later today)
  • Special previews of The Summer Goddess, The High King’s
    , and The Sky Slayer
  • An art show by Evelinn Enosken, who has designed a number of
    our covers and is just all round brilliant.
  • An interview with Karen Miller, bestselling author of The
    Innocent Mage, The Falcone Throne, and Empress!
  • And, of course, a weekly comic strip starring Grim and Bold!
  • And another exclusve short story later in the month! This one is “The Winter Road” by Steven Poore, and it’s set in the world of  The Heir to the North – I’m looking forward to reading it!
