But first, Happy Holidays! Both secular and religious, with family or friends or none of the above, I hope you had a very festive season surrounded by loved ones and reflection and comfort and rest. And a Happy 2024! May next year be full of bigger and brighter things for your life, whether that's bigger successes, bigger achievements, bigger naps, or whatever would make it brighter than 2023 for your life!
Now, the big announcement for Exiles of Eire is, since that Shelter and Sacrifice is out, I'm going to start building hype for book 5. To help with ending this beloved series on a high note, I'm posting the whole thing on a serial site called Royal Road (think Wattpad, but more focused on fantasy and sci-fi kinds of stories). I'll be posting chapter by chapter, week by week, starting January 6th.
If you want to reread the series in a new way to catch yourself up for book 5, or tell your friends who might be on the fence to try it for the first time for free, you can find it here!
For any new books from now on, I'm going to be releasing them like this, chapter by chapter and week by week. First access to reading ahead will be on Patreon and Ream I keep mentioning. Once they're all done, I'll assemble them into a traditional ebook and paper book and release them on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other retailers and library services.
But Brie, what if I want to support you through Patreon or Ream, but I'm not interested in reading new books chapter by chapter?
No problem! For people who want to join this new part of the Fae Underground journey, but would rather wait for the collected books to come out, there's benefits for you too!
The top tier comes with a new full-color character illustration or new short story within the Fae Underground universe (which consists of the Exiles of Eire and Heart of Hellfire series so far) every month. Seeing and reading these pretties will only be available on Patreon and Ream for a relatively long while.
And if you're not interested in participating in Patreon or Ream, don't worry! I'll compile all the bonus content together after making so many of them and release them for purchase as a collection of some kind (more on that when I get there). But this will have the longest wait.
Anyone who just wants to just toss a coin now and again between books can donate through Ko-Fi. Regular news and updates about anything big, along with and general behind-the-scenes content will still go out in the monthly newsletter. Regular previews, major announcements, and memes will continue on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter/X. :D
