A ‘true fan’ pointed me to an interesting article. The premise is that it is possible today for authors and artists to support their passion by finding just 1,000 ‘true fans.’ This is in contrast to the ‘traditional’ approach that tends to leave publishers and promoters fat and happy and artists ‘starving.’
So I thought, “Let’s give it a whirl.”
On the bottom left hand side of this page is a donation/subscription form that uses paypal to process payments, credit card and otherwise.
Here’s the deal:
- If you subscribe to making $5 a month contributions, I will in return commit to writing a short story every month for your reading pleasure. In addition, I will give you any soft cover copy of one of my books every year at no additional cost to you.
- If you subscribe to making $10 a month, I will send along the short story I write each month AND let you read each chapter of the Birth Pangs books AS THEY ARE WRITTEN! Also, I will give you any hard or soft cover copy of one of my books every year at no additional cost to you.
- If you subscribe to making $15 and up a month, I will include the above and allow you to comment on the Birth Pangs chapters as they are written. This will allow you to be actively involved in the development of future books!

‘Spero’ (Hope) is one of those Latin words that you sort of know, even if you were lucky enough to attend a school which didn’t obstinately prioritise fluency in dead languages. It is incorporated in quite a few modern English words, most obviously ‘desperate’, or ‘de – sperate’, meaning literally ‘without hope’. Fortunately, although the times that AR Horvath is writing about may indeed be desperate, the quality of the writing itself is far from it.
Spero elaborates on the events described in ‘Fidelis’, but starts and ends in different places. This may sound like an odd way to tell a story (book two of a series traditionally picks up where book one finished, after all), but it proves to be a refreshing and clever way to – almost literally – weave a narrative, with a different thread of the future history that Horvath is constructing being plucked out of the tapestry of the whole and examined.

My friends at Sojourner Leather have moved their domain to http://leatherjournal.us. These are the folks that create the leather covers for my hard cover editions. They are fantastic. If you search this forum you can find some samples. Of course, they have some posted at their site, too.
