A Men of the ESRB short story

Trees Take the Long View (shifters and partners Book 17)



Trees Take the Long View 
by Hollis Shiloh

Alec dropped out of the shifters and partners program, disillusioned forever with the police. Now an unfairly handsome troubleshooter is here to try to tempt him back. To complicate matters, he might just be Alec's mate. 

Despite their differences, Alec wants to make it work (as mates—not partners). But it'll take time for Dean to figure out what he wants. No matter the attraction between them, it might take an awfully long time. 

Fortunately, Alec can be as patient as a tree...even if he can't keep his nose out of Dean's job...

Patreon short stories



Hey guys.  I'm trying something new: Patreon short stories.  Basically if you pledge $1 or more you'll get a new short story a month.  (There are a couple of other choices as well.)  

But yeah.  If I can't manage it, I'll pause or cancel after a few months.  The first three short stories are already written, so, we'll see what happens during that time.  If you guys are interested.  If I have enough ideas.   Etc.

Looks like the first short story will be out in December (and you won't get charged till then if you take the plunge).

If you're not into Patreon, don't worry: everything I write for it will eventually be published elsewhere.  If you don't like short stories, don't worry either, as I hope to keep writing novels, as well. Just not quite as fast as I was trying to for a while.

We'll see what happens.  :-)

take care ~

LOYAL


Enforcer wolf. That's Riley. A gangster took him in when he was young, and he's been loyal ever since.

It's getting harder and harder for big, soft-hearted Riley to unquestioningly follow orders...but he doesn't want to be alone without a pack. Almost anything is better than that.

What would it take for a guy like Riley to switch sides and work for the cops instead? Maybe not very much at all.

New Goals

This year, I've tried to have a release a month out.  It's not always been easy.  I'm finding that, especially when I write longer stories, it's not working for me.  My goal is to move to a month and a half between releases, and see how that works.  I don't like feeling burned out, which sometimes happens when I'm feeling rushed (and I know you guys don't like reading stories that feel rushed, either).

So, for 2018, my goal is 8 books instead of 12.

But I have another goal: make a Patreon account and offer readers who join a short-story-a-month.  I have several reasons for wanting to try this.  One, some authors are making it look really good right now!  Y'all are killing it!  Two, I gotta say, the monthly guarantee of a certain amount of money (as long as I hold up my end of the bargain) sounds...nice.  It's not something authors really get in general.  And three...I like writing short stories!  I miss it!

Anyway that's my goal.  A short story a month, and a book every 45 days.  We'll see what happens.

I'm really excited!  I've always liked writing short stories, but most people prefer reading longer stories.  So we'll see if there's enough interest (from readers) and enough ideas (from me) to do this.

Two notes: 

1) I'll still publish the short stories elsewhere, but not for probably a month or two.  It's not that they'll be exclusive content, just "first" content.  Some will be in established worlds, some won't, but by definition, they won't be something you have to read in order to enjoy the rest of any series.

2) I'll probably try the Patreon short story thing for 4-5 months, and if I'm enjoying it, and readers are going for it, I'll keep doing it.  If not, I'll focus my efforts elsewhere.  Maybe try to speed up my novel writing, maybe not.
