If you are a Patron of the site, you have access to the works linked below. If you are not, perhaps you'd like to become one. It's only four bucks a month, and with that four bucks, you are a) supporting the site and my work as a writer, b) getting access to everything here and c) rating a mention on the darya semanakraseye (ds) page, if you so wish.
Note: Premium content is on hold right now as I work on I, Alexander. I'll get it going again once things smooth out with that.
(Links work for Patrons only.)
Update: D'oh! I can only have one poll up at once!? Well, I'll bring the coolest weird species one back once I've got a good enough sense from the patron fee one. Sorry about that.
This evening, MeiLin completed the process allowing me to post material to the site that is only available to paying customers.
The defining difference between weblit and deadtreelit (aside from the amount of money that does not change hands in weblit) is the availability of immediate interaction between writer and readers. It’s worse even than you might think with deadtreelit, because, as a writer, you not only don’t get reader feedback until you finish writing the book, but, because of publishing schedules, you don’t get reader feedback until a good year after you finish writing the book.

Shirley came up with the premise on Friday [March 5, 2010] or perhaps Thursday, and told me about it: you have two road Sereniteers – basically rural cops – in the Empire of Arko in the Fifth Millennium world. It’s post-conquest, however, and they are a mixed pair, an Arkan man who’s a veteran, grizzled and jaded, and a younger Yeoli woman who is relatively new to police work, holds idealistic views of law enforcement and is utterly upright, honest almost to a fault. Physically, she can kick his butt, and she’s the senior partner, in command.
...the rest of it. Beginning, plus connective material between asa kraiya and Anardika here.
There’s only one way to get into the greatest school of generalship in the Fifth Millennium world…
