Want to support my writing?

Enjoy my stories? Well then! It’s a little known fact that authors need food and time to write stories. If you would like to help in the pursuit of these strange commodities so I can keep entertaining you with fiction, here’s where you do it.

Signing up for a monthly subscription to my content isn’t so weird, right? People used to subscribe to magazines all the time. Now, not so much, because you don’t need a magazine to find your favorite topics anymore. No more middle man. You can now support the authors you enjoy directly.

I have a Patreon account for just this thing. It allows me to have different levels of content for fans of my writing at different price points. Details for what subscriptions get you are listed here. If you’re interested, follow the link below to my Patreon page and sign up for it!

Personal Patron - $2 Subscription

For two measly bucks you get access to my main Patron Feed which includes; 

  • One full length story, 7-15 pages long, every single month. Every month the genre will switch so there will be a variety of horror, fantasy, science fiction, and weird content.
  •  An extra, illustrated, flash fiction story every month. The short story is 1-3 pages long and comes with a picture drawn by Jill Cooper. The first one of the month will be either horror or science fiction.
  • Another extra, illustrated, flash story every month! This short story is also 1-3 pages long and comes with a picture drawn by Jill Cooper. This one will be either fantasy or weird.
  • A monthly article on my process including writing advice and productivity tips. In a 2-3 page article, I’ll talk about what works for me to keep on track with writing 10,000 words a week and what techniques I use when writing to enhance the result.
  • I will create a personalized thank you note, put it somewhere in the world, and add a picture of it to the Glorious Gallery of Gratitude on my website.  Anyone who becomes a patron is immortalized on the internet! A link of your choice can be attached to your image so you can promote your own art, or business, or whatever you like. Obviously, no links out to malicious sites other questionable content.

All of this story content is exclusive and none of it will be released anywhere else for six months.

Postcard Patron - $4 Subscription

For four hard earned dollars,  you get the following: 

  • Everything in the Personal Patron tier. This includes the full length story, two illustrated flash stories, the article, and a spot on the Glorious Wall of Gratitude.
  • Yet another illustrated flash fiction story. But this one shows up at your house in postcard form! Also, the Jill Cooper illustration for this story is in full color! The story is, obviously, slightly shorter to fit onto a postcard. Each one is numbered and signed by myself and Jill Cooper. They will be mailed out the third week of the month.

All of this story content is exclusive and none of it will be released anywhere else for a six months.

Pulpy Patron - $6 Subscription

For six bucks,  you an entire freakin’, serial novel!

Every year, I will release a brand new novel. Each one has 12 chapters split into quarters that will drop weekly! I’m doing this in the spirit of the old, serial fiction, adventure stories style. The book is fast paced and written specifically in a cliffhanger fashion. But, just like the classic pulp tales, you’ve got to wait a week for each piece of the story. Each chapter will be 12-24 pages long, and each weekly part will be 4-6 pages long.

This tier of rewards doesn’t officially start until the first week of January 2018 when part one of chapter one is released. It runs through all of 2018 and, at the end of the year, Pulpy Patrons receive an e-book copy as well.

2018’s novel is a thriller called ‘The Cache’. A couple on weekend getaway to do some geo-cacheing have their plans turned into a nightmare race against time! Can they keep up with the psychotic challenges set by a mysterious stranger? And why have they been singled out?

Pulpy Patrons will also have the opportunity to vote for the genre of 2019’s serial novel!

As usual, everything in the Personal Patron tier. This includes the full length story, two illustrated flash stories, the article, a spot on the Glorious Wall of Gratitude, and an illustrated postcard story in the mail.

As it’s released, the novel chapters are exclusive and none of it will be distributed anywhere else until it is complete.

Perfect Patron - $10 Subscription

This is the highest level of patron!

Not only do you get everything from the lower subscriptions, at the end of the year, in January, you will receive a physical, signed, copy of the previous years serial novel!

No, you don’t need to have been a Perfect Patron for the entire year to get the signed book. But, to plan for printing demands, Perfect Patrons who sign up after November will miss the cut off and not be included in the January release. Instead, they’ll be included in the next year novel.

So, to paraphrase,  you get…

  • One full length story, 7-15 pages long, every single month. Every month the genre will switch so there will be a variety of horror, fantasy, science fiction, and weird content.
  • An extra, illustrated, flash fiction story every month. The short story is 1-3 pages long and comes with a picture drawn by Jill Cooper. The first one of the month will be either horror or science fiction.
  • Another extra, illustrated, flash story every month! This short story is also 1-3 pages long and comes with a picture drawn by Jill Cooper. This one will be either fantasy or weird.

  • I will create a personalized thank you note, put it somewhere in the world, and add a picture of it to the Glorious Gallery of Gratitude on my website (as a bonus, this image can link out to any website you choose).  Anyone who becomes a patron is immortalized on the internet! A link of your choice can be attached to your image so you can promote your own art, or business, or whatever you like. Obviously, no links out to malicious sites other questionable content.
  • Yet another illustrated flash fiction story. But this one shows up at your house in postcard form! Also, the Jill Cooper illustration for this story is in full color!

    As it’s released, the novel chapters are exclusive and none of it will be distributed anywhere else until it is complete.

The functional deity waved his hand and the body burst into flames, both in virtua and aboard the Dell Singh, as the cremation unit incinerated everything efficiently. He took the crystal eye offered by the trio of witches and departed for Hell, where he did his best thinking.
