Tier 1's patron only posts about current work-in-progress including general feelings, minor details, and submission process, but also the occasional reprint of a story that was popular with readers or just a story of mine that I love.

American Gauthic Returns
$15 per month

Along with tiers 1 and 2, this tier will help inspire me to reprise the column I once wrote for DARK DISCOVERIES, AMERICAN GAUTHIC. I would start by reprinting the original essays, written between 2004 and 2011, along with addendums to those essays, and then would begin adding more new installments. If you're new to AMERICAN GAUTHIC, it was a column like some of Harlan Ellison's columns (AN EDGE IN MY VOICE, THE GLASS TEAT, and THE HARLAN ELLISON HORNBOOK). I talked about whatever I fancied at the time. I may talk about things I'm watching or reading, politics, whatever pops into my head.  This could be monthly or quarterly, depending on life at that moment.

Can You See Me?
$20 per month

At this tier, I'll post a video commentary. Think, a video version of the AMERICAN GAUTHIC column I describe above. The pricing of this will motivate me to make time and maybe even hire a friend to take the video, as well as edit, etc. I've been told I'd be great with a vlog or podcast, so let's see if that's true!

Books!
$25 per month
Reward

This tier is a one-time tier, and is limited. I have copies of my novella, ALICE ON THE SHELF, sitting in a box, all lonely. I will sign and inscribe it to you, or just sign it. Want me to draw a picture when I sign it? Okay, let me know. This is limited because my stock is limited, and when I go onto the internet, I see this book going for more than $25. So get it while it's hot!

Kill or Be Killed
$100 per month

That sounds drastic, but there's a lot of death in my work. Also, I'm always looking for names for characters. At this tier, your name will be used for a character. It would most likely be a small-role character but how many people have put you in a novel or story? I mean, that you know of. And for special thanks, I'll send you a signed copy of the final work should it get published. Yeah, I don't like using "should," either, but I'm not at the point in my career that I can use "when."
