The short version: You'll have to wait another 10 episodes or so for chapbook #2.
The long version: Initially, I'd planned on releasing a chapbook every 10 episodes. The problem is, the first few episodes were a lot longer (2k+) than the standard episode now (1.2 to 1.5k). Scryer's Gulch Episodes 1-10: Annabelle Arrives was about 18,500 words or so; were I to put out episodes 11-20, it'd only be about 14,000 words, but the book would cost the same to produce. I'm not going to make you pay $4.95 for a smaller book.
So I'm going to wait and put out episodes 11-30 as chapbook #2. If I keep to a once-a-week schedule without missing one, that means about three months from now, like sometime around July.
This will enrage No1 Daughter, who doesn't like to read online and waits for the chapbooks. Too bad, No1 Daughter, who doesn't read this blog anyway! You will have to wait!
So. Intimate History news.
I'm so close to finishing book one. All the weak spots in the original are glaring and painful. One at a time, I am strengthening them and moving on (though I'm stuck right now after a good run). But that's not what I want to tell you.
What I want to tell you is that I'm going to be starting a new benefit for subscribers soon. Everyone who subscribes at the $1+ a week or equivalent level will be getting access to a new series here called "Tales of the Lovers' Temple." Guess what kind of stories they'll be.
They will not be necessary to read to understand the main storyline; in fact, they'll be backstory and tangential only. But they will be the juicy bits that everyone likes so much.
I'm hoping it'll be a once a week benefit, though initially it may be less. I have this book to finish, you see. I've got an inaugural story in mind about one of Glaes Beloved's early adventures that I may write down sooner than later.
At this point, don't subscribe in anticipation of this benefit (but hey, feel free to subscribe just because). I don't know when it'll be starting. I know it'll be relatively soon, but I want to wait until I've got a couple stories in the can and some others outlined.
