Hi everybody! I have some news coming tomorrow about Empire of Blood, my free Patreon exclusive stories, and more. I realized today that I haven't formally invited you all to sign up for my email newsletter: Empire of Bob. If you'd like to keep up on the latest news from me, this is the best way to do it. 
      I send newsletters out no more often than once a month so I won't fill up your inbox with annoying emails every time something shiny catches my attention. Promise! Whether you decide to sign up or not, thank you so much for following and supporting my fiction! You can sign up at the following address: http://shiningincrimson.us9.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=7898639c856f465a4861dc7d5&id=a1fc8e469b

Thank you, Mea! I'm glad to hear you've found my work distracting from daily life. I am back to work on RFA. In the meantime I have a number of free stories available and more coming soon over on my Patreon page in mobi, epub, and pdf editions. In fact I'll be putting up a brand new short story there tomorrow called "A Light that Could Only Shine On the Dead." :-) Here's a link: https://www.patreon.com/robertswilson Thanks again for reading!

8 years on wattpad! Real dedication to the craft of writing. Keep it up. Have you published any works outside of this site?
      Which authors to you gain inspiration from? I'm guessing Stephen King (Salem's lot) and Bram Stoker (Dracula)?
