Musketeer Space Part 62: We’ll Always Have Paris

fleur_de_lis_laurel_wreath_paris_sign_france_french_burlap_b276_520a9661It’s the very last Musketeer Day! This has been an epic adventure for me and I really appreciate everyone who came along for the ride with me, whether you were reading, supporting, retweeting or just generally squeeing at me. Special thanks to Grant for making my Musketeer Space title banner, and to my proofers who are working on the ebook.

Letting go of my sweeties is a lot harder than I thought it would be. But, you know, WE’LL ALWAYS HAVE PARIS SATELLITE.

Final reminder: if you want to receive the complete ebook of the (lightly edited) web serial to read on your e-reader device, please sign up as a Patreon supporter at the $1 level before the end of this month. I won’t be making the complete ebook available for general sale any time soon. If you sign up for the $2 level, you will also receive a collection of Musketeer essays from this blog and elsewhere.

I will be rebooting my Patreon page next month to acknowledge the end of the serial and announce new projects – and I’ll give all my supporters a nice comfortable window in which to remove or change their pledge, given that Musketeer Space is DONE.

For now, enjoy the epilogue to Musketeer Space. xxxxxx

Musketeer Space Part 60: Judge, Jury and Executioner

duchy-of-anjou-shield-of-fleur-de-lysTHANK YOU FOR READING AND SUPPORTING MUSKETEER SPACE!

It’s Musketeer Day! This is I think the longest chapter of the longest novel I have ever written. In my defence, I still have fewer chapters than Dumas did. Slightly. Thanks so much to my weekly readers, it’s been lovely to know this hasn’t just been spinning out into a void.

Still two chapters to go after this but… they are quite small. This is the big one.

MUCH LOVE, MUSKETOONS.

Musketeer Space Part 59: The House of Athos

knockerIt’s Musketeer Day!

This is the last Musketeer month, so of course it has 5 Wednesdays in it. It may also have more than one Musketeer Media Monday – I put up a new essay this week on the Big Finish Audio “The Church and the Crown,” AKA Listening To Random Musketeers (2002) (featuring a whole lot of Chevreuse but no actual Dumas Musketeers) but I still have some other media Musketeers I’ve been wanting to review, so you may get some bonus essays this month.

Remember that if you want to receive an ebook of the entire book (slightly revised), you will need to sign up to be a Patreon supporter before the end of this month. If you sign up at the $2 level you will also receive a collection of the essays and supporting material I’ve been working on while writing this, not all of which has appeared on the blog.

Musketeer Space Part 57: A Drop of Water

waterBook Achieved! As of this week, I officially reached the end of Musketeer Space. You, dear readers, still have a month or so to go. Five more chapters, to be exact.

I know, I’m sad it’s finishing too. On the bright side, those of you who have been waiting for it to be complete so you can read it in one go don’t have much longer to wait!

If you want to be able to read Musketeer Space in complete assembled ebook form, you will need to be a Patreon supporter before the project winds up at the end of July. Otherwise I will be keeping the individual chapters up on my blog for the forseeable future, unless my agent or an interested publisher suggests otherwise.

sterling-silver-hammer-finish-fleur-de-lis-dog-tag-3It’s Musketeer Day again!

SF Signal have published my GOH speech from Continuum XI on Fantasy, Female Authors and the Politics of Influence. I amended it and updated it based on my ad libs during the presentation including the imaginary crowns representing the various women I was quoting on the topic.

We’ve also put up the Galactic Suburbia episode recorded live at Continuum (with a great audience!) including sketches by Kathleen Jennings of what our hands look like when we’re podcasting.

I’m soooo close to finishing Musketeer Space! This month’s Musketeer Media Monday concerns Dogtanian’s War on Moustaches (1981) and the unexpected revelations of a Robotech nature.

The end-of-project complete assembled ebook of Musketeer Space will beexclusive to Patreon backers for at least a year so if you want one, head on over the the Patreon page – you can support the project for as little as $1 per month.

capHappy Musketeer Morning to you all!

I had a very festive birthday weekend, including a Gold Class viewing of Mad Max: Fury Road (ahh always nice to watch the apocalypse from a comfy chair), a self-inflicted Much Ado About Nothing marathon, and finally managing to perfect the coffee cake made from actual coffee.

Musketeer Space Part 50: Sunrise at the Siege of Truth

pearlIt’s Musketeer Day!

Less than three months to go now before the serial is complete – if you’re not currently a Patreon supporter, now is a great time to hop on board. All supporters will receive the ebook edition of the complete book – and I’m not planning to make this version of the book available for sale anywhere else, so this is the only guaranteed way to get hold of it.

Supporters at the $2 per month level will also receive a collection of essays and other ephemera from the Musketeer Space project, including works from the Musketeer Media Monday series, from the newsletter, and a few special pieces exclusive to the ebook.

Thanks so much to my new Patreon supporters, and also to my faithful, longstanding supporters who have been on this ride all along. I couldn’t have done it without you!
