The sequel to Dyson’s Angel and my second novel set in The Shell, a fully sealed Dyson Sphere built around our sun. Far in the future, a thousand years before the novels open, an unknown race of aliens destroyed every world in our solar system and used harvested rubble to construct a shell around the sun at approximately the distance where Venus used to orbit. In the subsequent years, no human has managed to find a way out of the Shell and, to the best of human knowledge, no alien has managed to enter the shell… except perhaps the insane alien void ship known as Heraxo. After an accident cause a human treasure hunter named Zau to be fused with Heraxo’s intellect core, Zau’s wife Moira took command of the alien ship and set herself up as a mercenary.
Splintered Demons opens immediately following the end of Dyson’s Angel.
You can follow the development of Splintered Demons here on my website as I release segments of my first drafts. These segments will be released every day that I write, generally five days a week. Passages are first drafts, so other than removing expletives that I prefer to not post freely online, they are not edited, or necessarily in the correct order. It is possible to read the whole first draft of the story here on my website, and I welcome you to do so, but for an optimal reading experience (and to make me feel good) you should consider buying the final book when it is done.
Many of my first draft posts are partially locked, allowing you to read about half of the post for free and read the full post if you support me on Patreon. For just $1 a month you can get access to all of my first drafts and get a free copy of every eBook at least a month before it goes on sale to the public. Okay, technically you’re paying $12 for that eBook, but you’re also getting to read it early and have a chance to leave feedback as I am writing it.

A few notes…
Before leaving feedback, please remember the following (click the links for more detail):
First drafts are rough, please be nice.
Feel free to leave feedback, but remember that I’m the author.
I write for adults, so please don’t get upset over content.
My characters are often unconventional, and I don’t always agree with them.
I am complicated, and so are you and everyone else.
