Exclusive Web Content (free!)
Alert: Free Exclusive Erik Scott de Bie Web Content!
Here, I’ve collected all things clickable, free, and fun that you can browse to in order to check out my writing, all of it completely free. I have several free short stories here, as well as some game design work I’ve done.
Check back every month or so–who knows when there will be new stuff?
(Did I mention this is all free?)
Sample Chapters and Companion Stories:
Here, you can download sample chapters (usually the prologue and/or chapter 1) of any of my three books.
Companion stories I wrote to go alongside my novels–as long as I’m able (i.e., as long as they keep taking them!) I will publish one of these for free with every novel I release. You can read them before, during, or after the novel in question, and you don’t have to read the novel at all to enjoy any of these stories!
