Some readers have been shouting out to Kyle that he should try to use his fire to blast at Hunter. Seems like he might have heard you! But alas, the dampener does indeed have an excellent range. I think I heard it was made by the Noneco Corporation…
So, I had an exciting week where I received 5000 books from Hong Kong and made my first in-store retail sale of an advance copy of Artifice in the very same day. Kickstarter backers will be getting their books very soon. (I’m just waiting on a few stragglers to complete their Kickstarter surveys. If you haven’t filled out your survey letting me know what your shipping address is, now is the time!)
And for those who weren’t able to participate in the Kickstarter campaign, I have exciting news. You can now pre-order the book on Amazon! The official publication date of May 1st is still a ways off, but if you (or your friends) pre-order now, you’ll be first in line to get copies when Amazon has them available. And if a lot of folks pre-order, it really helps me out because all those sales are counted as happening on one day, May 1st, so there’s the chance you could make Artifice into an Amazon Best-Seller. That’d be pretty cool for our little sci-fi yaoi! So, please spread the word!
In other news, we had our thirteenth bonus page in a row this week and look at the donation bar below! We’re already over halfway toward the next bonus page!

Thank you all so much for your amazing support! I’m really enjoying getting to post these action pages up so quickly and it’s all because of you. Thank you!
Gosh, Kyle looks in a tough spot! And he still doesn’t have his powers! Will he figure out some way to get the upper hand or will be become invisible Swiss Cheese? Tune in

Hope to see you there!
