I’m experimenting with new ways to give readers updates since my weekly messages are turning into a huge wall of text.
Plus, I have better formatting tools here so hopefully I can make some of this stuff easier to read. 🙂

Thank you all so much for reading!
- Book 1 of Delvers LLC – Welcome to Ludus is going to KU (Kindle Unlimited) on Sunday, Oct. 2.
- This means only the first few chapters of Book One will stay up on RRL, Wattpad, and my website
- Book One will be on KU for 3 months. After that time, the chapters will come back online
- Book Two (Adventure Capital) will continue to advance every week as usual
- I don’t plan on going KU for any books other than book one in the future
I’m working on getting a physical copy of Welcome to Ludus available! I have a couple books coming in the mail next week. If they check out, I’m going to okay the proof and then the book will be available (physically) on Amazon! After the physical books are available, I’m going to think of some way to sell signed copies for readers that want them.
Physical copies will look like this:
The book launch is going great!
However, now I am thinking about going Kindle Unlimited on book one. What this will mean is that I will have to take most of book one down from the internet for at least 3 months. I’m really wrestling with this decision because I don’t want to take my content down, but Amazon basically created Kindle Unlimited for indie writers.
I will keep everyone posted.
Delvers LLC: Welcome to Ludus is on sale!
Hi everyone! Huge news!
I’m getting the last of my manuscript back from the editor on the 19th. After this I need to go through my entire text, format everything, place it into a tool to format for an epub, double and triple check everything, etc etc. I should have my full story uploaded to Amazon and Nook by late 19th or the morning of the 20th.
This means Delvers LLC: Welcome to Ludus will be available on Kindle starting on September 20th – 22nd. It will be available on Nook on the 22nd – 23rd.
As an FYI, the published version will have 2 full chapters worth of added content, two additional edits, flawless grammar, and also include two steamy romance scenes.
The book will be on sale for $5.98 USD and will be 133k words (which is pretty long, almost twice the length of some first novels).
This community and all of you in particular have been incredibly supportive and inspiring. Thank you for coming on this journey with me and (hopefully) staying on it.
If you have left a review for Delvers on RRL and you’d like a copy when it’s published but you’re strapped for cash, pm me and maybe we can work something out. I think I’d be willing to send free copies of the published version to a handful of readers for reviews on Amazon.
I’m very excited. I wouldn’t be at this place right now without all of you which is why I also thanked all my online readers in the dedication of the first book!
The last of my story just went ot the editor for PRing. Should be publishing in about a week!
Just sent the first 74k words of book 1 off to the editor for PRing! Now I need to send the rest this week. It’s happening, people!
I have a couple announcements:
-First, the edit for book 1 is 50% complete as of this moment. This is huge news because the first 50% of the story was the portion that needed the most editing. Everything should go very quickly now. -whew-
-Second, I’m writing Chapter 7 right now and this is exciting. Henry and Jason are embarking on their next adventure! I’m really excited about book 2. I’m glad so many people can join me for the ride.
I just had to change around some of my back end programs on the site. Please let me know if you see anything wonky.
I’ve started updated Delvers Book 2 chapters! This is very exciting. However, editing the first book is going very slowly.
The new cover for the first book is done! Editing is going slow so I’m currently writing book 2. There should be a chapter up on Patreon soon.

I just wanted to drop a note so everyone knows where I’m at. Unfortunately, I just spent the last week traveling for business so I’m a week behind my intended schedule 🙁
The cover for book 1 is almost done. I just need to edit like crazy so it’ll be ready for the next stage before publishing.
The news that is applicable to most of you is that I’ve started writing book 2. It’s going slow because I’m still doing all my world building and plotting too. That should be done in another week or two.
That said, I think I will have the first chapter of Delvers LLC: Book 2 uploaded to Patreon in a week or two. The release here (on my website) will be a week after that.
The way chapter flow will work will be Patreon->My Website->RRL and Wattpad. Each step will be a week. That means if you are a RRL reader, you will get chapters 2 weeks ahead of time on Patreon.
I really gave this a lot of thought before making my decision. To be honest with you, uploading 4 or 5 different places every time I got done with another chapter was exhausting and was making this whole thing a lot less fun. Considering I’m only making $20 on Patreon so far and that isn’t even covering my hosting costs, I think it’s important that the writing stays fun. 🙂
I nor anyone else wants me to burn out and leave the story unfinished (which is a pet peeve of mine for web stories btw).
This is the first time I’ve ever published a book so the ramp up and learning curve is pretty intense. Losing a week didn’t help either.

…Still working on the editing. It’s going slower than I thought it would. I underestimated how much of the first few chapters I’d need to change to elevate it to my current writing style. The struggle is real.
I’m sorry for the wait.
In better news, the new cover should be done soon!
I’m in the process of breaking the Delvers LLC page into Book 1 and Book 2. I’m also going to take the next few weeks to change some aesthetics on the site like creating buttons etc.
A couple maps have been commissions that should make the site look a bit less boring (and provide a map of Ludus). I also created a page for the dedicated artist of Delvers LLC, link is in the “Art” page link. The first book of Delvers LCC is almost complete. I will be updating the story page with book one and book two after it’s done.
I just found a new, dedicated artist to work on art for the series! This is very exciting news since now all the art will be of higher quality and done in the same style!
Watch this space.
I missed my self imposed exile last week! This is the longest Delvers LLC has gone without an upload!
Unfortunately, my work had been crazy lately and I’ve been working 60ish hours weeks. I apologize for the delay.
To help make up the dry spell, I am definitely going to release at least 2 chapters this week. Stay tuned!
