In the never-ending quest to make a living off my art and stories, I’ve opened up a Patreon and an online store for Heliopause Productions. The store is pretty straightforward: it’s stocked with signed prints and books I bring back from conventions, and while the Squareup UI leaves something to be desired, currently business is light enough that there’s nothing that can’t be cleared up by a little human interaction. Don’t let the shiny logo and use of third-person-singular fool you, it’s just me behind the HpP logo.

The Patreon is, as I state right at the top, not for people who want to buy my work. It’s more of a “DVD extras” area where you can unlock more extras the more you pledge. I did a preview rundown of the rewards here or you can look up the Patreon itself. I tried very hard to offer rewards that would 1) be fun and 2) be things I want to be doing anyway. So I’m very excited to see people signing up already, as it gives me huge motivation to go forward with some projects which have been forced onto the back burner for a while.

I’m in Sacramento this week for Thanksgiving with das Partern and writing this while Boyfriend naps on the couch. He is like a very big, ginger cat in a Notre Dame T-shirt. Only less claws. It is nice.

Hope you all have a wonderful week! I’m leaving the HpP shop open for Black Friday weekend in case anyone wants to do Christmas shopping, and will ship those orders ASAP when I get home (on Monday). Also, if you’re drop-shipping gifts, say so in the note at check-out along with the to/from info, and I’ll gift wrap your purchase, gratis.

Happy Holidays!

For some time now I’ve been building up a new business front to handle the publication and production for my art and fiction. Perhaps you’ve heard me mention something to this effect before. Well, now at last I have something concrete to show you!


HELIOPAUSE PRODUCTIONS is now live as a business and website, and you can read the welcome post here.


The heliopause is the boundary of the heliosphere; the theoretical boundary where the Sun’s solar wind is stopped by the interstellar medium. I chose to name my company after it because I write predominantly science fiction and fantasy (well, fantasy mostly) and I wanted a name that evoked something out-of-this-world. Also, Pangolin Press was taken.


Heliopause Productions is essentially a business front for all my writing and artwork. It will handle the release of eBooks, print books, audiobooks, webcomics—basically anything I decide to do. I will still be running GoldeenOgawa.com as my official personal blog, and of course I will note news of releases there as well. But Heliopause is for everything business.


So many things! I am re-releasing the first two Professor Odd books with new covers, so that there will be continuity with the succeeding episodes. I am also releasing a collection of the Bouragner Felpz stories, The Adventures of Bouragner Felpz, Volume I. Coming in September I’ll be launching my semiannual anthology, Apsis Fiction, which will contain four all-new stories + some bonus short-shorts. These will include an all-new Professor Odd novella, which will also have a solo release later on in October.

There will also be MORE Year of the God-Fox. Be sure to follow the official Tumblr for the latest updates there; I will have news of Book 2 this coming Monday.

And of course I will continue to take personal artwork commissions as time and energy allow.


I am going to take a little vacation. I’m driving up the west coast to visit some old friends, do some writing, ride my bicycle, and maybe catch a show or two. Should be fun.

Take care all!
