Oh, there will probably be a scene like that sooner or later in the Freeport Venture series. Just a matter of where it fits in.

If you want to do a comedy, might I suggest showing us Sunset and Kukri having their magic lessons? I'm sure those could do all kinds of crazy things together! XD

That I do. I have written two of them, and already have plans to do a third.

You do freeport stories as well?

I haven't read that story, honestly. So I can't say how many comparisons there will be, other than that it's going to be a slice of life-comedy with plenty of shenanigans involved.

As for writing for profit, it isn't my tendency to insult anyone for merely working to earn a paycheck, however they do that. Now it's perfectly acceptable to criticize whenever someone writes something merely to make money, and I have seen plenty of examples where a book series or author's work suffered because they kept writing long after they should have moved on.

Though I will agree no worrying about doing this for profit does open up a lot of freedom, something I expect to become increasingly common as resources open up with the internet. Granted, I have considered creating a Patreon for myself to give myself some financial service. But that would purely be voluntary assistance from my fans, not be a case where I would hold my work hostage or change what I'm doing just to earn more money.
