Hello!

Have you ever read a great book and just wanted more? More background on the characters and backstory? More information on the unique and interesting worlds those stories were set in? And have you ever wanted to interact with your favorite authors on a real-time basis with the opportunity to ask them the burning questions you have about your favorite characters or about how that writer was able to craft such a compelling story?

I sure have! 

My name is Douglas S. Pierce and I am a father, husband, and author living in the Metro Detroit area. I have been an avid reader and writer for as long as I can remember. I have a particular passion for creating compelling characters who find themselves in seemingly impossible situations and exploring how those characters use their intelligence, skills, and wit to survive those situations while finding a way to make the world they inhabit a better place.

This account is dedicated to the books that I publish through Shattered World Press, an independent small press that will publish my work (and eventually those of select others) on Amazon via Kindle and their print-on-demand (POD) technology. 

Your subscription to this account will provide more opportunities for me to write and publish the kinds of fantasy and speculative fiction novels that this world needs!

In return for your patronage, you will gain access to oodles of exclusive background and behind-the-scenes content that will only be available through Patreon as well as previews of draft chapters and sections from upcoming books. You will also see previews of covers before they are posted anywhere else, as well as receive advance knowledge of book tours, signings, and other author events.

I look forward to seeing and interacting with you here on Patreon, and to providing you with the very best content! 

Please, take a look around to see what I have to offer, and if you can, join with me by subscribing to one of the tiers below! 

Thank you so much for your time and consideration!
