Bound Gods graphic novel update

I have had a time trying to find an artist for the Bound Gods graphic novel. I have an excellent artist, Inochihime, for my Doxie Diaries: Jinx and Ira: Bitter Sweet, but I wanted a different style for Bound Gods. So, for now, I am going to do the comic pages.

The first four pages are up on Pateron. They are intro pages giving the reader a taste of what the world is like after the Collapse. Here is part of page four. Whose car is that leaving the protected area? Where are they going? If you've read Bound Gods Book One: Chimera then you know!

Page four of Jinx and Ira: Bitter Sweet is up (it seven panels long). Jinx has broken into someone's apartment...he's in for a surprise!

Here is a breakdown of my Patreon tiers and what you can get:
Ouium
$1 or more per month
Ouiums are the often unappreciated mortal caretakers in the Bound Gods world. But they are exceedingly important, because the little things they do keep everything going. 
***Early Access and Full Access--Doxie Diaries, Written works.
Some racy art from the Bound Gods graphic novel. After four weeks you will receive access to the Bound Gods scripted version including NSFW content.
***PDF of any trading card or book mark (you can print these as you choose).
Loyalist
$3 or more per month
Loyalist are the first line of defense for the god they pledge to. They are his eyes, ears, and often the defender of their homes. Thanks to Loyalists, gods are able to keep tabs on the world without exposure via the information that Loyalists bring to him.
***Immediate access: Everything on the 1.00 tier, 
 *Scripted* Bound Gods comic including NSFW content.
 NSFW extra art, and no wait for access to Bound Gods. 
PDF of completed chapters for the Doxie Diaries. 
Trading card 6x per year
God
$5 or more per month
Men born with a survival's edge and often abilities that border on the supernatural. Many have survived impossible situations that no normal man could have. Gods are immortal, but the price for that immortality is addiction to ambrosia.
***All comic access and written stories.
***EXTRA scenes not in the original book or scripted comics. 
***Sketches/toss out scenes.
***Early teasers from to-be-printed material. 
***PDF of the Doxie Diaries comic. 
*** Trading cards, book marks, and or other flat envelope rewards 6x a year.
Doxie
$7 or more per month
Men born with the ability to take ambrosia and then reproduce it. Doxies are highly coveted. So much so, they are considered objects to be owned. They are guarded, protected, and trained to meet the needs of the god they serve. They are the god's greatest treasure.
***All above tier rewards, plus PDF of the Bound Gods Comic.
***Trading Cards 6x a year
*** Other gifts, but not limited to, pens, key chains and other items that can fit into a larger envelope. These will be sent out 2x a year.


If you can't afford to join Patreon, don't worry. The Doxie Diaries will eventually be free on a webcomic hosting site.

Introducing Inochihime: Doxie Diaires artist

The young godling Jinx
I wanted to introduce you guys to the artist I hired to do the Doxie Diaries: Jinx and Ira: Bittersweet comic. She goes by Inochihime. Here is where you can find her online and check out her work.




We are only a couple of pages away from seeing the innocent Doxie Ira. So head over to my Patreon page for early access to comic pages. Eventually, they will be up for free on some of the webcomic sites.

I have also hired an artist to do the artwork for Bound Gods Book 1: The Chimera and Wild! And they are already working on it. I will have details about the artist up soon.

Thanks for all your support! Don't worry I am still writing :)

Graphic Novel updates: Bound Gods

This is minion Sharon. Adrienne and Pello stopped by to discuss cool things happening on the Patreon. An artist has been hired for the Bound Gods graphic novel! More details will be coming. Pages for the Doxie Diaries story Jinx and Ira are already posting. And an Alton origin story is posting. I am Team Alton...fight me!

Pello is a lap dog.

Future Bound Gods T-shirt and merchandise designs...

I am designing t-shirts, tote bags, key chains and other stuff for my Bound Gods patrons as rewards. Some things might 
be available for non-patrons to purchase.

Here is what my design team came up with (my design team is me, my assistant, an author friend, and possible Pello...coffee may have been involved and lots of inappropriate jokes.)

This one is for the bravest of my fans...

Depending on interest there might be some merchandise for some of my other books at some point.

Good news and the Bound Gods graphic novel

Hey! Adrienne's assistant here. Adrienne posted this over on the Bound Gods Patreon page. A lot of great stuff coming...like a Bound Gods graphic novel!! Can you imagine the artwork? *fans self* 
I want to let you there is enough membership now for me to put up at least two pages a month because I am doing my best to meet pledges dollar for dollar. The guy I am interviewing for the Bound Gods comic is very stoked. I just have to make sure he can pull off the character drawings as this seems to be the hardest for EVERYONE I have interviewed (over the past year) for this project. He's also very, very excited to do as many pages as possible---I told him careful what he wishes for. This means, if he gets the job, every penny on Patreon will go to him to keep him busy. I'd love, love, LOVE to see 4+ pages a month. I'd love to see enough, on the first annual birthday of this page, to put to bed the first full graphic novel to send out to patrons.

You have given so much, and I am overwhelmed by how generous you have been. I'm hoping it won't be too much to ask for you to spread the word. That, in my experience, has been the GREATEST way to get a project out, book or comic, where people can see it. There are folks out there who are not big novel readers (Shocking, I know) but they love yaoi comics or comics in general and would never know this is here without you. See, Patreon hides any page with adult content. You do NOT come up on searches, you do NOT come up on direct lookups with the name of the page or author. The Bound Gods site is basically in the proverbial basement behind a locked door with some big scary chick (chick, cause man, have you ever seen a woman fight, they're terrifying) guarding the door. And she has nine-inch steel razor nails and is looking to break one off in your face. Yup, that's how hidden we are. My only way to get things out is by hitting social media and screaming at the top of my lungs--and I am bad at that--really bad. Plus, when you toot your own horn, people tend to ignore it. Unless you fart, you fart and EVERYONE notices. Anyhow, if you take 1 minute out of your day, to post two links to this site, tell them what you love, what you hate, what you hope to see in the future, I'd be eternally grateful.

Also, $5 Amazon Gift cards go out at the end of this month. If I don't have your email PLEASE send it to me so my assistant can collect your address and we can get stuff out promptly to you. I will also be doing a T-shirt design and Logo. I'm gonna start with two different ones and put up variations of those logos for you to look at and vote on. The T-shirts will be a reward for higher tier Patrons in the future, all other Patrons can purchase one at a discount as well as those who just pass through. I will also have magnets, key chains, and if you have a suggestion for something else, let me know. These will go out to other tiers. Basically, everyone will get something.

So again, wave your Bound Gods banner (maybe I should make some of those little team flags) and tell the world about what they're missing.

More naughtiness on its way, so please stand by. But don't fart, farting never wins friends. Just ask my dog.

Doxie Diaries: Ira and Jinx in Bitter Sweet webcomic has started! Plus some WILD news.

I've got some new things going on over on my Patreon. The Doxie Diaries webcomic has started. The first story Doxie Diaries: Ira and Jinx in Bitter Sweet is about a young godling named Jinx. He hasn't taken any ambrosia yet and lives outside of the protected areas. His special skills are opening any mechanical lock, great a climbing (think extream parkour), unshakable balance and can land on his feet unhurt from any height. Ira is a young Doxie who has never had ambrosia either. He was hidden from the association outside of the protected area and has spent the last two years in a locked room.
There will be humor, angst and lots of smut...this is a Bound Gods story after all. The first page up on my Patreon and available to everyone for free. Page two can only be accessed by paying patrons for now. Eventually, each page will be free (but censored), patrons will always be many pages ahead and uncensored.

There will also be short stories. A Slice of The Past Story: The Death of Trust part 1 is up for paying patrons. This one is about Alton's past.

Coming up
I am interviewing artists for a Wild graphic novel. I've seen some awesome artwork and hope to hire someone soon and then show you some samples.
