I’m very proud to introduce you World of Skills. This is new series of stories I’ve been working on for a while.
The idea behind this effort is to provide some exclusive content to some people who support my work, by making it available to tier 2 and 3 subscribers on my Patreon page.
The first episode is available for free, by clicking on the link at the bottom of this post.
What’s It About?
World of Skills is set in the present day, in a world where a few, random people have developed unexplainable skills that appear to defy the normal rules of nature.
Is this like X-Men? I hear you ask.
I suppose so, but while the idea of people obtaining unexplained abilities is not new, my little series has little in common with X-Men in terms of actual story.
My hero(es) are an insurance investigator and his assistant/sidekick, who are employed to get to the bottom of expensive heists that cost the company a lot of money. Occasionally, they also assist the police in investigations that have unexplained elements that suggest a Skilled person was involved.
Is this like Sherlock Holmes? I hear you ask.
I suppose so, in some ways, but it can’t by like Sherlock Holmes and like X-Men, so make your mind up!
Two-to-five thousand word short stories. Each a self-contained adventure, but with season-long plot and character development arcs.
I will be publishing an episode a month at least, until the ‘season’ has run its course.
I anticipate about 10-13 episodes but that is subject to change.
Where do I sign up?
I really wish you’d asked that question instead of my having to pretend you asked that question. I’m going to provide the answer just in case you’re curious.
If you like episode one enough to sign up for the rest, the remainder of the episodes will be available through my Patreon.
There are three tiers to my Patreon, “kitten”, “feline” and “lion”. “World of Skills” episodes will be available to the last two tiers. If you like the style of my writing but not this particular series, then exclusive short stories are also available through Patreon at the “kitten” level. Subscribing at this level will set you back a bit less than the cost of a coffee each a month.
