New Year, New Dragonings

Happy New Year!

The authors of Clockwork Dragon have banded together to offer a new way to get our books in 2018. We know a lot of you like a little of everything we collectively produce. That’s why we’ve launched a new group Patreon.

This idea has been in the works for several months. We considered looking for alternative options when the guys over at Patreon muffed things up. Then they apologized and reversed the decision. With that, we decided we could take the plunge.

Backers at the $5+ levels will get eARCs of every book we publish as long before publication as possible. With everyone’s current plans, you can expect to get a minimum of 6 ebooks per year. In 2018, you’ll get at least 7, maybe as many as 10, depending upon how everything shakes out for us.

If you’re not interested in our Patreon, but you still want to know when we release books, we’re working on setting up our newsletter so it goes out more often than…almost never. Sign up for that

The Holiday Sprint #amwriting

As the year winds to a close, Clockwork Dragon is busy. We have several shows still to go. NaNoWriMo begins next week. The holiday season portends madness. New books need writing. And editing. And revising. And covers, and and and.

Here’s our show schedule through the end of the year:

Steamposium, Seattle
Jet City Comic Show, Tacoma
EuCon, Eugene OR
Orycon, Portland OR
Oddmall, Everett
Geek the Halls, Portland OR

If you attend any of these events–and we think you should, because they’re awesome–stop by and say hi.

We’re also excited about the new Writerpunk title, coming in early April. In Hideous Progeny: Horror Goes Punk, classics of horror get the Writerpunk treatment. Both Jeff and Lee contributed to this volume, and we can’t wait to see it in the paper flesh.

We expect to release at least half a dozen new titles in 2018, and have an awesome upcoming project we hope to debut in January. Thanks for all your support and we hope to see you soon!

New Release: Ghost Is the New Normal #ya #fantasy

We’re excited to announce the next installment in Lee’s young adult urban fantasy series, Spirit Knights.

The ebook is currently in pre-order until March 21, the official release date. Until the 22nd, the ebook is only 99 cents.

If you’re new to the series, this book has massive spoilers. So massive we can’t offer an excerpt without spoiling something. It all begins in book 1, Girls Can’t Be Knights, an action/adventure story about ghost hunting in Portland and a mentor/apprentice relationship that becomes a father/daughter dynamic.

The series is available in print, ebook, and audiobook. The audiobook for Ghost Is the New Normal releases on March 28th.

Winter Is Here

And with winter comes…shows!

We had a great time at OrcaCon in Everett, WA a few weeks ago. Our upcoming schedule:

Radcon–Pasco, WA, Feb 17-19
The Portland Home & Garden Show’s Book Garden–Portland, OR, Feb 23-26
Miyakocon–Salem, WA, Feb 25
Emerald City Comic Con–Seattle, WA, March 2-5
MythicWorlds–Seatac, WA, March 17-19 (as a guest of TANSTAAFL Press)
Galaxaar–Issaquah, WA, March 19
Norwescon–Seatac, WA, April 13-16

CapitalIndieBookCon2 has also been scheduled! The 2017 show will be on May 13, 2017 at The Olympia Center in downtown Olympia.

Clever readers may notice some overlap on the dates. Jeff and Lee will be handling all these shows, sometimes splitting up to divide and conquer.

Our new release schedule is in flux right now, with only one confirmed date so far for 2017. But stay tuned, because we have a bunch of stuff in progress already, and we’re looking forward to another busy year.
