About Daniel J Klein

That you're reading this is a blessing in itself. Thank you. 

From feedback I've been graciously given and looking at other novelist's ABOUT info, I think I will chunk this down for you. You're always welcome to take in my verbose account in the POSTS section below this, but it's not necessary at all.

Why am I launching a Patreon page?

Because at 65, I've just finished my first novel. It took two years. It is long. And that's with not working a full-time job. It's something I could have done a long time ago. And I believe this is what I'm supposed to be doing now. I hope those who've read my book agree. We'll see.

At this age, it's been harder and harder to find a full-time job. Or any job, lately, with the Covid thing and all. I do keep trying. I'm not complaining and if you know me, you know that I'm a pretty joyful guy. I don't expect to get rich from this. Or even make my monthly expenses. But it would help to have assistance with some basics.

If you know me, you know I'm a helper of others. It's in my DNA. Even so, ever since my first days of writing back in 1979, I wished I could have a patron of the type I read about who supported Renaissance artists back in the day. I've always thought that Patronage was a noble, valuable, and necessary role in society.

I have been a patron to others and it's a fulfilling feeling.

It's okay if you don't think this a worthy thing, or that I should be working at Walmart instead - not that there's anything wrong with it. I understand and am comfortable with that. I've been humbled and have humbled myself many times in my life and would not hesitate to do so again – if I didn't have this deep core conviction that writing full-time is what I should be doing at this time. And yet, along with the thousands of other very talented people on Patreon, I do not feel it's beneath me to humble myself in this way. I know it will be a win-win partnership.

Let the writing speak for itself. I welcome ANY feedback! 😁

Thanks for reading!

This is a BIG DEAL! It will help me with a lot of little things. Like paying for websites and internet. It shows me that we're on to something more. It's definitely encouraging. Thank you!
