Hi, everyone! It’s that time again! Weekly updates delivered every Friday! I actually have some hopefully very exciting Patreon news to share! Whoohoo!
Before that, though, Patreon has thankfully reacted very quickly to the erroneous flag and fixed it. Hopefully that’ll be the end of it for good, but I’m sure I’ll have to deal with it again.
So… Last year in August I asked people what they wanted me to record for the Lynn reads events. This basically means I’m reading my own work and recording it. I’m not a professional reader at all, but I enjoy it and, hopefully, you will too. They’re available to all Patrons under the tag “lynn reads” (yes, so creative, I knooooooow), but given my current situation recording them tends to be… sporadic. (Basically: I live ina very noisy area.) But I finally had a chance to record a whole set at once (mostly because they’re short) and so… Starting March, the Lynn reads posts are coming back with a schedule!
For the first 6 months, I’ll be sharing one story per month from Tales of the Little Engine to wrap up the set (also because I like them) on the first Tuesday of the month, so that’s: March 5th, April 2nd, May 7th, June 4th, July 2nd, and August 6th. After that, focus will shift to the Feather by Feather and Other Stories pieces that were part of the original sampler (you can read them all even if you’re not a Patron, by looking through the fbf tag!) and share those. Since the majority of them are really short and there’s, like, 24 of them, I’ve shifted them to being bi-weekly for at least as long as it takes to share the short pieces. So those will appear on the first and third Tuesday of the month.
After that, I’ll be switching to finishing up reading the Patreon pieces posted to date and… then we’ll see where everything is at. I’m excited, though!

DemiPrincess2: Whoo! Progress! And the plot’s kicked it up a notch which will be… interesting. Look, you all wanted kelpies. I am not responsible for the consequences of that desire. (Okay, fine. I am.) Progress is sloooooow, but there is progress!
Life And Other Such Important Matters
Maybe I should just take this out until I actually have something to report? I enjoyed a delightful single Valentine’s Day yesterday, though. I spoilt myself rotten with productivity and peace and quiet. But mostly, I admit, I was waiting for today to roll about because a) new Star Trek: Discovery episode, b) new The Dragon Prince season!
Stand-out Positive Moment
Patreon actually got to my ticket about getting erroneously flagged (again) within a week! OMG! No need to stress out about losing visibility for over a month.
