Patreon, a Confession, and a Draft Cover.

Many of you have asked if I will be opening a Patreon account.

I did.

Another number of you have asked if I'm William D. Arand.

I am.

So here's the Patreon. 


And here's a draft of the new cover. Not done yet, but doing well.

  1. This was a big surprise as I had enjoyed every book you had penned under both names and had never even thought you were the same guy. Seriously loved every book you wrote, one of the few authors that I've actually bothered writing a review for. Looking forward to anything you write :).

  6. I love all of your books. I never thought you'd be that same person. Love the cover, and can't wait for it to come out.

  7. Wasn't expecting that but I guess it makes sense. Kind of cool but almost a little disappointed to know its just the same guy behind all this good harem action/fantasy stuff lately. Hoping the genre becomes more popular in Western fiction.

    Anyways I'll definitely keep getting your audiobooks, they've been a lot of fun. Super Heroes in particular is awesome!

    1. If you haven't tried J.A. cipriano's "the builder's sword" is very similar harem based you may enjoy Kyle D.

      Also can not wait for the 2nd book of either series hero sale or wild wastes.

      Delete
    2. Gotta agree here. Similar but without the descriptions within your novels. Cannot wait for book two! Needs to be soon!

      Delete
    3. Eh builders sword it's a stop gap but imo not as good read it once was done wild waste I'm reading right now a third time 4 clues and to scratch that fantasy itch while waiting

    4. You may like to try the Daniel Black books, they have similarities but don't expect a quick publishing schedule for any new books in the series.

    5. I'm hoping this genre becomes even more popular as well. I saw "the builder's sword" and decided to read it, while it's ok I felt the characters were little more than 2d cutouts. Can't even hardly remember any names and I read it yesterday. My favorites in the genre besides Arand's books are the Daniel Black series and while it's not exactly like the above series I liked the Heartstone Saga even if it's a tad more explicit. Would love to see more suggestions :D

    6. I agree with you on the Heartstone Sage, although it felt like it only set the scheme for the next book.
      Some similar suggestions - some more than others;

      The Chronicles of Arianthem (S Sabian)
      Thaumatolgy (N Teasdale)
      Ultrahumans (N Teasdale)
      Fox Meridian (N Teasdale)
      The Hidden Academy (J Rosenbery)
      Urban Fairytales (E Schubach)
      Portal of Infinity (J V Stry)
      Damned and Cursed (G Bullion)
      Shawn Moore (D R Rosier)
      Cytherean Chronicles (D R Rosier)
      Alternate Places (P S Power)
      Adventures of Pervikar (J Evans)
      Red Moon Demon (M Blayde)

      I'm sure there are more but can remember any at the moment - some are more erotic than others.

    7. Read almost all of those series how unfortunate for me, though the cirenthien chronicles by D R Rosier I have yet to read I did enjoy his Shawn Moore series.
      Craig if you think of any other suggestions would be great.
      And Kyoraku's Guard I agree builder's sword is a stop gap but still same genre ish.

    8. Will do Kyle, feel free to pass any suggestions you may have my way.

    2. In Wild Wastes? Yes, there's definitely something different with Red. :)

  13. Ight that's it, I now have to pick up otherlife dreams seeing how I've loved both super sales on super heroes and wild wastes. You have yourself a fan who is excited for whatever comes next, be it a sequel or something new.

  14. Only one day left for a release this week. I just want to give you my money, but you and your publisher are like a magic 8-ball telling me you try again next month.

    1. I -am- the publisher.

      I'm waiting on the editor :(

      As soon as they're done i'm loading it to Amazon.

      Amazon only takes about 4-8 hours to load a book.

      I will load it at 2 am on a Sunday if I have to. lol

    2. Got me starving for my fix. Finished your Selfless Hero trilogy and Super Sales on Super Heroes this week. Your latest Patreon post makes me wish that Patreon would let me upgrade a tier from my current level.

  15. Any chance you could let us know how many chapters there are?

    1. At a guess, he said he'd only post 75% of the chapters on Patreon. So 36 chapters total?

  19. Thank you for putting the first book back on Kindle Unlimited! I re-read it the other day. Unlike many of the others who have commented here, I'm not really interested in the harem so much as the freeing of the slaves and the building and defending of a new city. BTW, is there a way for me to send you a list of grammatical and orthographic errors from the first book? I wrote down the ones that stood out the most from the first half of the book. Would that be helpful?

  20. Well you told us it would be out 15th/16th august in previous post it is 19th now.

  22. Ah ha! I knew you were a dude! It's rare to get good smut from a dude. I'll give you props your smut is awesome. The give away is that no female would use a phrase like "slurp him down". ROFL. My husband really likes these too. He just doesn't know it.
