Feel free to follow the latest Far West developments:

The Long Trail Home

Here we are in 2021.

Ten years. A decade. The original FAR WEST Kickstarter was in 2011. Ten years is a long goddamn time to ask people to wait, I know.

It’s been the hardest decade of my life. Professional and personal challenges, like I’d never experienced before. Physical and mental heath crises requiring damn near all of my focus and attention. The work on FAR WEST definitely suffered. You know it. I know it.

Honestly, I’m all out of apologies.

2021 is the year where FAR WEST finally gets released. I have not abandoned the project. I am finishing it up (currently adding some things, suggested by my editors, to various parts of the manuscript, mostly in the final chapter (the Narrator’s chapter). My business partner, Eric Trautmann, has begun layout of the completed chapters. Things are proceeding. PDFs will go out first to the long-suffering Kickstarter backers, and then will be released commercially, followed by the printed book (again, to backers first, and then wide).

We will release this year– delays, disasters, pandemics or societal collapse be damned.

Home is on the horizon. We’re racing the sunset, but we’re gonna get there.

    Will you commit to releasing the pdf to backers, in whatever state of completion it may happen to be, before the end of 2021?

    And the long suffering Pre-Orderers who didn’t have the benefit of all the secret “backer only” communications and releases, I hope!
