Welcome to A Truant Disposition, the official site for author Ainy Rainwater.


We are currently experimenting with a private forum, which is invitation-only. More information about it will be available in the near future.

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.

January on Patreon:

Chapter 10 of the science fiction novel-in-progress (rewrite), fantasy short story scene, nonfiction book review, and other exclusive subscriber material. This month I'll be polling subscribers and discussing rewards and if any changes need to be made for my second year of Patreon.

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)

The Truant

Hi, there! 

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.

I enjoy chatting with readers. I'm most active and responsive on Patreon, but I'm also on Facebook , Twitter, and Instagram.

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!
