About Joe Slucher and Shona Kinsella


Shona Kinsella
Shona is the author of epic fantasy Ashael Rising (Unbound, 2017) and dark Scottish fantasy, Petra McDonald and the Queen of the Fae (Fox Spirit, 2018). She is also joint editor of the British Fantasy Society's fiction publication BFS Horizons. Shona lives on the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond with her husband and three children. When she's not writing or wrangling children she can usually be found with her nose in a book. She is very excited to be collaborating with Joe on this story and hopes you'll join them for the journey.

Joe Slucher
Joe is best known for his digital paintings of fantasy and surreal subjects. He loves to paint the drama involved in gaming art and enjoys the beautifully melancholy in his personal work. These days most of his art is created digitally using Paintstorm Studio and Adobe Photoshop. He has created artwork for roleplaying games, video games, card games, comics, books, and has art directed for companies. His most well known clients are Wizards of the Coast, and Valve Software. His personal work shows a love for light and texture. Joe has developed an addiction to reading more books than is healthy and is really looking forward to helping to craft and tell this story. He hopes to underscore the emotion and drama of Miranya's Oath with the art and create pieces that aren't just cool but are beautiful.

Together we can tell this fantasy story of epic struggle! Join us as we construct this tale and world through smaller stories of joy, tragedy,betrayal, lust, and greed. Much of this mixed together where no victories are without cost and no loss without hope. The good will do evil and the evil will hope for the good. It's going to be beautiful and we hope you want to be a part of it.

Look at the public posts to begin reading chapters.


This is going to be an epic story and that means it takes a significant amount of time to craft both the art and the writing. Neither of us are independently wealthy so working on this story in our spare time means it would take an extremely long time to be released. We believe that Patreon could help us complete our story much faster.

What You Receive and When

Our Patreon is not meant to be a pay wall but there are some exclusives. Patrons' early access to the process gives them a unique opportunity to comment as things develop and help shape the story. There are also opportunities to receive some unique writing or critique from Shona. If you're a fan of Joe's artwork then you can receive special discounts and opportunities to acquire his originals or limited edition works.

Planned Schedule

7th-10th- Final art and story posted to Patreon for patrons only. Joe sends discount codes for his store for those Patrons with rewards for print discounts.Follow new Patrons and give shout out. * - we will try to follow and shout out patrons as they join but this is our date for catching up.
Around Middle of the Month- Post vid of process with reading audio to Patreon. Sneak peak of draft chapter.
Last Week of Month-Joe reading the new draft chapter. Art process shots begin to be posted. Shona reads through finished chapter near the end of the month.

Joe is usually on Discord between 10am EST and 4pm EST
