Welcome to A Truant Disposition, the official site for author Ainy Rainwater.
We're currently experimenting with a private forum for my writing group. It is invitation-only. At some point in the future it's possible it might be opened up to friends and Patreon supporters, but we have no plans to open it up to the general public or make it public: the 24/7 admin that would require just isn't possible for one person who has a real life. 😊
March on Patreon: Celebrating my one year anniversary on Patreon! Rewards this month include chapter 12 rewrite of sci-fi novel in progress, book reviews, Lovecraftian short story in progress, and much more!
February on Patreon:
As we approach the one year mark for my Patreon I'm reevaluating tiers, rewards, etc. I'm looking at adding audio rewards and am posting polls and posts for subscribers to give feedback on what they want going forward. Now is a good time to jump in! The science fiction novel rewrite will be wrapping up sometime in the next few months and that means a new novel-in-progress for subscribers! Rewards this month include Chapter 11 of the sci-fi novel, a character sketch, non-fiction book review, and a public post of a short story, as well as anything else that strikes my fancy.
Subscribers get a big chunk of fiction every month. There's soooo much going on there every month! Click button to subscribe! (Or if you just want to peruse my profile: Ainy Rainwater is creating Everyday Magic and Sci-fi)
I write mostly light escapist fiction, usually character-oriented science fiction or contemporary fantasy. For more about me and my "truant disposition" see Rainwater.
My blog here is Idleness. Content varies quite a bit from personal posts to essays on whatever topic catches my fancy.
I write a lot for my Patreon, mostly fiction--short stories, Patreon-exclusive series, novels in progress, character sketches and scenes not yet attached to any project, as well as posts which are supplementary to or background for my books. If you're looking for more of those extras (and lots of fiction!), or you just don't want wait for the next book to read assorted adventures, please consider subscribing. Tiers start at $1 and you get a lot of bang for your buck!
I also write book reviews (and other bookish posts) for the $5 "Bookaroo" Patreon tier, so there won't be much of that on the blog. Subscribers to that tier get ALL the fiction in all the lower tiers as well, so you're getting much more than book reviews.
This website (among other things) is funded by my Patreon. I'm very grateful to my subscribers for making it possible to move, redesign, and upgrade this site so that I have less aggravation and more time for writing. Thank you all!
