The Future Looks Bright (Finally)

The Future Looks Bright (Finally)

Hello Rebels, and welcome back to my life.

Let’s start with the obligatory acknowledgement that it’s been a while since I’ve talked to you all, as well as the obligatory apology.

I only talk about them so flippantly because you’ve heard me say them so often before. I truly am sorry, I just know from past conversations that you don’t really care about apologies so much as knowing what’s up.

Deep truth time: it’s been a pretty rough few weeks, and I haven’t known what to do about it for a long time. It kept me from being very productive in my writing, and it kept me from wanting to talk. About anything, really.

I don’t want to go into the specifics about the problems—sorry, some things are private, but don’t worry. They’re only the same problems everyone in the world has: time…and the other thing.

However, I’m making this video, because I finally, actually, truly feel like I’ve sorted those problems out. For the first time in what feels like FOREVER, I have a plan that’s going to work.

That means the immediate future is no longer a dark and scary place where I no longer wish to travel, and the longer-term future is actually looking pretty bright. Again, I’m sorry I don’t wanna go into details, but you will see the results happen, so just…stay tuned, all right?

If you do want to help in any way, there’s a few things you can do.

First: just keep watching the YouTube channel. I know videos have been sporadic recently, but they’re going to be regular again.

In fact this weekend we’re taking a trip to San Francisco and then to Las Vegas, so I am going to be putting up quite some awesome videos over the next several days.

Second, you could, if you want, become an Insider patron on by clicking on this link.

I don’t feel like I’ve made this clear enough to my regular YouTube channel audience, but Patreon is what makes my YouTube channels possible, and if you want to be one of those awesome people who contributes just a buck every month to my Patreon, you get exclusive videos every weekend.

Those videos are ONLY for patrons, and there’s already a bunch of them on the Patreon page. If you become a patron, you get to see them, even the ones I’ve already put up. And the support really makes things a lot easier on me and my family.

Finally, you can become an Inner Circle patron, also on

The majority of my patrons are Inner Circle or above. They donate $5.00 a month, and in exchange they get every book I publish weeks before they’re available for sale anywhere else.

Honestly, I would love to JUST write books for my patrons. And if only a tiny, tiny percentage of my YouTube audience were Inner Circle patrons, I could be writing you guys a new Nightblade book every single month. That is, honestly, the dream.

So if you choose to go and support me on Patreon and see the secret videos and get advance copies of my books, that is great. But if you can’t, it is also totally fine. Take care of yourself first.

Stick around the YouTube channel, maybe drop a comment every once in a while. It means the world to me just that you’re here and watching, and talking.

Once again, I truly am sorry for going radio silent the past few days.

It’s almost impossible to be creative when you feel like the whole world is weighing you down. But once you lift that weight off your shoulders it’s like your whole body and mind are lighter, and you can finally start thinking about the future again.

That’s where I’m at now, and so I will say thank you so much for watching, and I will see you tomorrow. Byyye.
