Ishta's Companion was the working title of the thirteenth novel in the Ethshar fantasy series. The series started out at Del Rey, then moved to Tor, but the next few were written as on-line serials and then published by Wildside Press.
The serials worked like this:
- I posted a chapter of the first draft.
- If readers liked it, they sent me money via Paypal.
- If I received enough money each week, I posted the next chapter.
- Repeat until the novel is finished.
This serial (which, as of December 2015, I expect to be the last) began July 31, 2013. It ended, two chapters short of completion, on September 9, 2014, when I sold the finished novel to Wildside Press, which published it under the title Relics of War. I expect future Ethshar novels will be financed by other means.
