If you’re on my Patreon, you already knew this was coming…
Even once the day is saved and the villains defeated, life may never be “normal” again. It certainly doesn’t get boring. A hero could wind up in love, or living on the run… or serving as a dormitory resident advisor in space.

The stories from this book are all taken from the monthly short story drop from my Patreon page–and, as such, supporters there will get the book for free as they’ve already kinda paid for it and then some. (As always, thank you so much.) Currently I’m planning this to be ONLY in ebook, as prospects of an audio version are a little thin and I’m not sure paperback would be cost-effective. Sorry if ebook-only is a barrier, but I’m hoping it won’t be. It will, however, be on Kindle Unlimited.
On the charity note: for the first 30 days after launch, all author profits from this book will be donated to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. Please note that neither organization is affiliated with me and this isn’t any sort of endorsement from them; it’s just a thing I’m doing. I WILL post receipts here. Los Angeles is a large and diverse area and it’s where I grew up, so I know this will do some real good. Both of these organizations have four-star ratings from Charity Navigator.
To be clear on details: I’ll post a screenshot of my sales data at the end of the 30 days, and I’ll show the math for the author profits. The only carve-outs are Amazon’s standard cut for sales and the 35% I need to withhold for federal taxes. (I realize that’s a little high, but experience has taught me to play it safe; I’ll cover the state taxes on my own, though.) The Kindle Unlimited payout will be estimated from the latest payout rate. Also, to be clear, the payout doesn’t hit my bank account until two months after it’s posted on my dashboard. If I can cover the donation out of my own finances before then, I’ll do so, but if sales are awesome I might have to wait for the payment. I’ve done this sort of thing before and I try to be transparent about it. 🙂
