Yes, I’m releasing a chapbook of my own stories under the Silent Motorist Media banner. Let me explain: as part of SMM’s Patreon goals, we promised patrons an exclusive chapbook once we hit $100 in subscriptions. Well, we’ve hit it, and this is the result of that promise. The paperback edition of At the Rim of Daylight is and will remain a Patreon-exclusive publication. To obtain a physical copy, all you have to do is subscribe to SMM on Patreon at $4 or more. At the Rim of Daylight will remain an ongoing bonus to Patreon subscribers.
At the Rim of Daylight consists of four full-length stories and one flash fiction piece by me. None of these stories are set to appear in my first full-length collection, The Puppet King and Other Atonements, set to release in 2022 from Journalstone. Three of the pieces are unpublished, and one is from a collection permanently out of print. The chapbook will also feature notes, art, and benefit from all the care and attention of any other SMM publication.
This chapbook will also be released on Kindle. This will be its only public release, and it will not be accompanied by a physical release on Amazon. This work is dedicated, with love, to SMM’s Patreon supporters, who have unwaveringly supported and encouraged us through every project. THANK YOU, and enjoy.
